The Dark Knight influence on the new Star Trek poster

News Simon Brew 3 Dec 2012 - 08:22

Without The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, there wouldn't be a Star Trek Into Darkness poster like this...

If you've taken a glimpse at the first teaser poster for next summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, you may get a little bit of a sense of deja vu. JJ Abrams' new film has promised darkness in the title (just like latter two Christopher Nolan Dark Knight films). It's also a sequel that looks to take the main characters to darker places (just like the latter two Christopher Nolan Dark Knight films). And the poster? It's got an iconic logo, cut into the rubble and destruction of something.

See for yourself if any of that looks familiar...

(We should point out we're very much looking forward to Star Trek Into Darkness. But if the marketing approach works for Batman...)
