You see similarities to the other film's posters but what is Paramount setting Chris Pine up for? Is he to become what William Shatner & Patrick Stewart became and his face iconic with Star Trek?
Well, I think that's a common marketing strategy for a classic franchise. He's the new captain Kirk, so they are going to start doing the same marketing for him that they've done for all major captains in Star Trek.
Anyway, I like the simplicity of the letters and white back ground for the new design of the 2-disc and blu-ray.
They also could have used the lettering on the novelization cover, which featured all the characters in the letters in the same way, but I don't have a problem with just Kirk being on the cover, since it's not like that's never happened before.
November 17th, can't wait!
