Or at best it's a rough draft that got released prematurely before the kinks were worked out.
This might be a distinct possibility. It doesn't scream "obvious fake" to me, but then on the other hand certain details are missing as you thoughtfully pointed out. A fake---to be convincing enough to trick the Trek community as a whole---would likely include some of the details you mentioned just so the Photoshoppers could cover all their bases and avoid early detection of fakery. If Trek fans with Photoshop skills are anything, it's anally retentive. Trust me. I've known a few over the years.

If not the official first poster, it might be a Paramount first run/draft that leaked out.

A couple of normally reliable fan pages on Facebook were displaying it as the genuine article. And like Locutus posted on the previous page, this is more or less the date that Paramount is supposed to release the first poster image for the film.

It's a damn sight better than this one, fake or not.

Re: The First Poster for INTO DARKNESS Has Just Been Revealed...

20 mins work, if that, while listening to ACDC lol

if i can do that in 20 mins... then imagine what the real studio can come up with after weeks / months of drafts and concepts...

Thoughts?

...
I thought it was a fake, right off the bat, but I could be wrong. If this is what the poster really looks like, then I think something went awry. Also, it reminds me too much of images like this:



FWIW

Awesome, there's a photoshop thread! Nice, and you've done some nice work there. I don't venture into the General Discussion section, but that's going to change now.

Re: The First Poster for INTO DARKNESS Has Just Been Revealed...

Well, JJ listened to all your complaints and decided to tone down the lens-flares, and now the whole movie is going to be blurry and out of focus. Way to go, guys.

Your avatar is missing lens flare, Spock/Uhura...

You need something like my previous avatar:



Now that's some groovy-ass flare, baby.
