I’ve made a couple of minor posts in the past about movie posters, specifically a couple of Star Trek pieces, but I wanted to bring them all together this time around. Here are the posters for Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home, Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and the newest Star Trek movie released this year.
Admittedly, I’ve never been a giant fan of the Star Trek franchise outside of watching a bunch of Next Generation episodes back in the day, but with a renewed love of old-school special effects my pal Dave recommended some re-watchings. Coupled with that was the artwork surrounding each movie, and the selected images above are my favorites. Bob Peak is the man, and responsible for painting all the posters above excluding the newest film. Just look at those effects, brilliant.
Additionally, I really enjoy the concept of that newest poster. Using an unconventional white background for a space movie was a wonderful design choice. I expect nothing less with a guy like J.J. Abrams at the helm.
I love the Retro posters, Kinda wish they went in that direction for the new film
either way great inspiration!!
I think there is a dark version of the newest poster as well…
Shame about the actual content (not presentation) of the new film.
The Nemesis poster is truely awful.
The Bob Peak posters are wonderful (even for the woeful Star Trek V). The new Trek poster is bland and a mess—just like the movie itself.
