Honestly, the abstract ship on the white cover is just ugly as sin. I've always hated it. And yes, the huge Kirk head "douchebag cover" (aptly put) does nothing for me either.
Yeah I was never crazy about that one either. I absolutely LOVE the new warp effect, but wish they would have used a shot of the ship ITSELF at warp instead of just some abstract shadowy image of it.

Frankly I wasn't really impressed by any of the posters for this movie.

Maybe they should have used the INDEPENDENCE DAY poster artwork.

I'm not a fan of any of the covers but the Original is better than the new one.

I liked the original, with the impressionisting Enterprise-At-Warp image, as it matches the branding seen elsewhere, including the soundtrack.

The transparent STAR TREK text, with an image seen through it, isn't bad, so much as not better.

The Star Wars style poster art is great, with the Enterprise being chased by the Narada, and the crew on the front.

THAT is what they should have used, but I do like the simplicity of the Enterprise-at-warp version.

I admit I like the idea of having Kirk on the cover! I think they should've added the whole cast in the picture for the release.
Let's compare:

When you compare the new artwork for the DVD & Blu-ray release:

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?

It appears they don't want you linking directly to the images. Best to go with the OP's link.

I think I like the design for the single disk addition the best. Too bad I won't be buying that one.

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!

I just saw your comment to be a little cold considering that she is now the ONLY female character Star Trek is likely to have for the next two decades.
I couldn't really care less about that. That little Ewok thing that hangs out with Scott might be the only little Ewok thing hanging with Scotty for the next 20 years. It doesn't mean it should be on the cover.

The 2nd URL works. Websites can try (Flickr) but they can't stop the simpleness of HTML and sharing a URL.
TrekBBS' policy to not insert an image from a server which I do not have an account is valid but I'm going to make it as easy as I can for others to see an image that is relevant to the discussion with a URL to the JPEG when possible.
