Re: First Poster

Sorry, that poster does nothing for me. Very generic. It tells us nothing and is in no way attention grabbing. It's as if they combined the posters for Dredd and Dark Knight.

Re: First Poster

It occurs to me that the date on the poster is done in the UK fashion (date, month year) rather than the US way (month, day year). Might this be a UK-centric poster for that region? I wonder if we'll get similar themed posters with different cities to promote the city around the world?

Unlikely, I know, as this one is also on the official website, but it might be cool.

Re: First Poster

I first saw just the lower portion of this poster with no text on another website. I thought it was Zod from Man of Steel.

Is Cumberbatch playing The Doctor?
Well, his Companion Mickey is in the movie

I like the poster, it looks great. Kinda reminds me of a Borg Ship in a way

Re: First Poster

Brit actor Cumberbatch playing a canon character, and the poster shows London. Conclusion: Cumberbatch is Montgomery Scott's nephew, Peter Preston, as Scotland finally achieves independence.

Really? Where are you seeing that? I see 05.17.13, not 17.05.13

Re: First Poster

I know someone else brought up Earth being the target in the last two movies. So that make Star Trek X, XI, and XII that have Earth as the antagonist's target. But I just realized that the villains of these movies all wear trench coats. Shinzon and his Viceroy wore trench coats, as well as Nero and a bulk of his crew, now Cumberbatch is sporting a trench. Have trench coats become synonymous with bad guys in movies now?

Haha just a funny observation

Re: First Poster

And I see that the signature typeface Horizon - long part of the Trek visual brand - has been adapted to Cyrillic.

Ah. I saw one with 17/05/13 here http://www.totalfilm.com/news/star-t...oster-revealed

It looks like the date alters from country to country, but not the poster itself.

Way long before Dark City

Assuming that is accurate-ish London (Mill Eye, Gherkin, Thames etc), was having fun trying to work out roughly where BC standing. O2 anyone? Or Greenwich Observatory would be neat.

Yeah, I figured that. But the only other guy in a trenchcoat I could remember at the time was Humphrey Bogart. Or Boris Badenov.
