What makes a "Big Hollywood Movie"?

They really ARE going after the international audience, look at the promotional tour they are doing in Japan this month! SO early for promotion!

Re: First Poster

I'm just glad Star Trek is still alive and thriving. How many other franchises other than James Bond, Dr. Who or Star Wars are still alive and raking in the big bucks and huge crowds this long after their creation?

They could have put Simon Pegg on the poster feeding Keenser kibble out of a bowl with his name on it and I'd still see the film. After the last movie J.J. earned a lot of goodwill with me.

Re: First Poster

Last night I dreamed that I had a female relative who was running in the London Olympics. I turned on the tv for her race and the only thing on the tv was THIS POSTER. I grabbed a newspaper and the only thing in the newspaper was THIS POSTER. The rest of the dream was me frantically calling her (her name was "Lum-Lum" ) and leaving messages on her phone asking if she was okay.

Re: First Poster

"Into darkness" stands with large and clear print, however "star trek" is small and opaque. Many people will not know it's star trek. Is this part of marketing?

Posters from the 2009 movie


Take special look at the Spanish and Japanese posters from the 09. How vague can you get? At least the Us, UK and other Europe posters gave us a blatant portayal of what they were advertising. Take the words star trek off the Spanish and Asian posters and you have no idea what you're looking at. And that's the Into Darkness poster. Vague.
Wasn't this the first teaser poster?

I think they'll know when they see the previews for it just like audiences knew The Dark Knight was Batman even though the name wasn't in the title or on any of the posters.

Re: First Poster

The first Trek 2009 teaser poster is one of my all-time favorite Trek movie posters for its elegant simplicity and nod to the classic TOS uniforms. I actually printed that out and hung it as a little mini-poster for a short while.

Nah. Though at first glance -- . Still, a high resolution shot of the poster shows the ears are perfectly human (rounded).

I hope that isn't an ear, else it's the worst makeup in Trek history.
