The somewhat uninspiring teaser posters for JJ Abrams’ reboot of Star Trek have been released:
Not sure what to think.
As the cast is comprised of near-unknowns, it seems like the logical course of action would be to sell the iconic nature of the characters. Instead, they seem to be stressing the actor’s youth and attractiveness (or in Bana’s case, possibly his “star” power. Haha) over anything that would actually be interesting to the masses. The Spock/Zachary Quinto would be the only exception, and that’s just because of the ears/hair.
It just seems like an odd marketing decision for something that is probably one of the most important releases in Paramount’s history. Billions are on the line here and I’m starting to think they’re a little unsure about how to properly push it to the masses. That 5 month delay is starting to look like a smart decision.
