I mean this in a good way,It is not the typical star trek where the first poster would have been set in space.Am guessing we are going to see earth and perhaps London a lot in this film

Re: First Poster

Interesting. It would perhaps be more poignant if we knew who Cumberbatch's character is.

Interesting, too, that it's London. San Francisco may have become a bit cliche, but I could see Paris for a change, since the office of the President of the UFP is there. For what it's worth, has there ever been any mention in any Trek of a connection between London and Starfleet or Federation departments?

Perhaps this is the first of several posters that will have Cumberbatch gazing out on the damage he's inflicted on other major Earth urban landscapes. First this one of London. Then maybe he's looking out over Paris, San Francisco, Tokyo, New York. The cumulative effect of several posters like that would certainly make a powerful point.

Re: First Poster

Very few other Earth cities have ever been mentioned in connection to Starfleet and other Federation agencies and organizations. In "Homefront" and "Paradise Lost" on DS9 it's mentioned that Lisbon, Portugal has a major Federation facility and power grid but throughout the different incarnations of Trek dating back to the sixties we've heard little or nothing about other Earth cities and how they relate to Starfleet.

Re: First Poster

Several of Into Darkness' actors are British, so London featuring makes a lot of sense.

And hopefully it means Cumberbatch can talk "normally"

No, the poster is inspired by TDK, remember?
He is playing the 23rd century's greatest detective, Sherlock Wayne.

Maybe he's playing Moriarty, the crazy 24th-Century time-traveling hologram!

No, he's playing a British Gary Mitchell....

Gone berserk because for the umpteenth time in two and a half centuries, England has been bounced from a World Cup Quarterfinal again, despite having hired a Vulcan Manager.

The reason why you don't see Wembley in the picture is that the football hooligans came storming out of the East End and tore it down after losing a Friendly to a team of Mugatu.

Are we sure this is supposed to be the late 23rd century London skyline? I know people say they see the London Wheel near Cumberbatch in the poster but even if that's the current Wheel by the Thames I have to wonder how many major cities survived the Third World War. Riker in First Contact said most of the world's major cities were destroyed yet San Francisco...Paris...London...they all seem to be intact and you'd think all three would be major targets in a worldwide nuclear bombardment.
This is 150 years or more after the Third World War. Most of Europe was rebuilt, including some significant landmarks, in far less time following WWII. And if you think the use of nuclear weapons makes a difference, Google some pictures of modern-day Hiroshima or Nagasaki.

Re: First Poster

So the "war-zone world" mentioned in the synopsis means civil-war London, with that 'nuclear weapon' building as the villain's HQ? I guess he has done some fancy genetic research there and that's why he has become so powerful.

And Enterprise dives into the Atlantic ocean.

I'm not sure whether I'm excited or not, gotta wait until the first trailer.

Pretty cool, even if the TDKR influence is undeniable. I'd say this is the most impressive ST movie poster since...well, I can't remember a cooler one.
This is the closest for me, but that might just be because it was the way I first found out about the movie.



I love the Into Darkness poster though. Too bad it raises more questions than it answers.
