Star Trek Into Darkness Gets a Poster

Star Trek gets a poster that nobody will be able to not compare to The Dark Knight Rises, seing as both of them feature the franchise logo outlined in a grey sky by trashed infrastructure. The Dark Knight Rises, however, didn’t have Bandicoot Cummerbund Benedict Cumberbatch. If you check the movie’s website you can see the poster lightly animated, but, graciously, the poster itself isn’t. I’m looking at you, The Hunger Games.

Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    Upvotes for the Cummerbund reference. LOL

    Between this, the Superman poster, and the Bioshock Infinite cover box. It’s been a terrible terrible week for geeky entertainment art.

    Anyone else see Jack Harkness’ coat on the first peek at the poster?

    It really is an insanely complete ripoff of TDKR- even Cumberbatch’s coat is made to look like batman’s cape in the wind. WTF?? Why?? Why ape Batman to sell tickets? It’s STAR TREK! They could have a piece of loose leaf paper and write Star Trek 2 on it and the lines will still be around the corner.
    Star trek and Star Wars are the two few brands that do not need to market heavily-especially ridiculous, obvious pandering like this. I don’t get it.

    I can’t tell – is that Neo or Superman?

    I also thought it was very Batman-esque.
