New Star Trek Character Banners Online
Update: now with even more posters!

01 May 2013  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Paramount Pictures

Here's something to assuage our jealousy of the jammy Australians who got to see Star Trek Into Darkness at the Sydney premiere: new character banners for the cast. OK, so it's not quite as good as seeing the film, but it will tide us through a few more days.

These posters do, of course, pose a few questions: Where does Benedict Cumberbatch get those cool coats with the awesome collars (see also: Sherlock)? Is it the same place where Zachary Quinto gets Spock's trendy hoodies? When did Star Trek's ladies get so kick-ass, with both Alice Eve and Zoe Saldana brandishing phasers? And who is getting the side-eye from both Karl Urban and John Cho?

Update: Now with even more posters - including one of Benedict Cumberbatch's hella big ship...

The J.J. Abrams film is, of course, shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest blockbusters, with the crew of the Enterprise under Chris Pine's Captain Kirk facing a huge challenge in the sinister form of John Harrison (Cumberbatch) and under pressure to save Starfleet, the Earth and god knows what else.

Star Trek Into Darkness is out on May 9 in the UK, or May 16 for those poor, deprived Americans. To read more about it, you have two more days to pick up the J.J. Abrams-themed issue of Empire, or if you have an iPad you can read it at your leisure. Or, if you're loath to turn away from the site for even a moment, make sure you've read our trailer breakdown here.

What's a phaer?
I know... picky, picky. Love a good spellcheck in the morning. Still - might be a good new word. Something classical about it. More

Nothing Geeky about this!
Years upon Years i've been subjected to the brother watching every star trek film and TV show and hating it. But this 'Alternative Universe' Re imagining of star trek takes all the geeky-ness out of it. I for one cannot wait for this film, the first one was great and well made. Don't think much trekkies are proud of it tho lol More
