Since we’ve already been introduced to the new cast of the U.S.S. Enterprise, it looks like the days of giving them their own posters has passed. Instead, the latest banner re-appropriates parts of a recent poster where the only Starfleet members present are Kirk (Chris Pine), Spock (Zachary Quinto), and Uhura (Zoe Saldana). Also, there’s the villain played Benedict Cumberbatch in case you didn’t know Benedict Cumberbatch was in the movie even though he’s dominated the marketing campaign. I know everybody loves a good villain, but is it too much to show Scotty (Simon Pegg), Bones (Karl Urban), Sulu (John Cho), and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) some marketing love?
Hit the jump to check out the banner. The film also stars Bruce Greenwood, Peter Weller, and Alice Eve. Star Trek Into Darkness opens in IMAX 3D on May 15th and in 3D and 2D on May 17th. [Update: We’ve updated the article with a new poster for the film which depicts the Enterprise in great peril.]
Here’s the official synopsis for Star Trek Into Darkness:
In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice.
As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
