Favorite Movie Poster

I've tried searching for a similar thread than the one I'm starting and can't really find a similar one so apologies if this has been done before, but I'd really like to see what peoples favorite posters are from the movie series, I'm linking a couple of my personal favorites to get the ball rolling, and I'll be interested to see any of the 'alternative' ones from down the years, ie the STID IMAX poster - the one with the oversized Vengeance behind the Enterprise at Warp.

I'll kick off with this:


Definitely one of my favorites - a classic old style 'montage' type, I love the use of colour especially the streaks coming out of Spock's face - the whole poster has got a great 'atmosphere' to it

I'm also a big fan of this one for similar reasons and I love the whole 'V' motif going on...

^ I also always liked the Japanese version of this, with the added Earth in it

They are both excellent - forgot about the FC one, I used to have that on my bedroom wall - love the alternative version with the earth in! Never seen that before, this is what I'm talking about!

My favorite, though I never could figure out why the Enterprise was firing on the space station!



My second favorite is TSFS, but since that is already listed, here's my third favorite...

Both good also, I didn't list TWOK in my absolute favourites precisely because of that! Looks like the artist got briefed incorrectly! I quite like the simplicity of the Generations one.

Next please...

Re: Favorite Movie Poster

Even to this day, the TMP poster is still my favorite for its simplicity and use of basic colors.

I had this one up on the wall for quite a few years.

I love the TMP one, I like all the rainbow stuff going on that hints at the crazy warp effect of that era, but didn't put it up as I didn't want to put loads up and kill the thread before it gets started. I've got a couple of other favourites too but I'll see if anyone else posts them first

I always loved this poster!!! When I was little (Before the movie came out) I thought that the face was a new type of klingon ship.

Edit: Sorry for the oversize, i didnt realize it was that large.

Still a decent one, but I can't decide wether or not I prefer it to the original one...

I loved the Into Darkness one with Khan in front of burning future-London. Such a shame that never actually happened in the movie!

I would have like that one a LOT more if it wasn't such a rip off of The Dark Knight Rises. I much preferred this one, so simple yet says so much about the potential peril the crew are going to find themselves in, I love how half the poster is 'Into Darkness' so to speak too
