Try Not to Confuse The First ‘STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS’ Poster With the ‘EXPENDABLES’

RXPVo

Studios and marketing companies have always borrowed from previous films and ideas over the years.  This isn’t a new concept and certainly isn’t going to be going away anytime soon.  It’s just unfortunate that the very first piece of promotional material we get for one of the most anticipated films of 2013 is something that seems so derivative.  Many have been quick to point out already that this first poster for Star Trek Into Darkness looks like something advertising one of Nolan’s Batman films or sharing a resemblance to a poster for Battle: LA.  Taken all those into account, I feel a more accurate comparison could be made to a promotional poster that we saw late last year for Expendables 2.  I have included both posters below so that you can get a side by side look at them.  In a little over a week we will all be getting our first peak at footage from the film when the trailer for the film premieres with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  For now, enjoy the poster.  Star Trek Into Darkness arrives in theaters May 17,2013.

Somewhere between growing up on a steady diet of Saturday morning trips to the local comic-book shop, collecting an unhealthy amount of action figures, and frequent viewings of Ray Harryhausen and Hammer Horror films, came forth a nerdy boy that was torn between journalism and the arts. In high school, Michael found himself writing a movie column for the school newspaper. Yet, he went on to get a BFA in Studio Art at Webster University. When not writing about films, you can still find him discussing classic horror, collecting action figures, and reading Batman. Clearly, not much has changed.
