The Undiscovered Country

Star Trek 6 concept poster

startrek6conceptposterI love this concept poster for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. I don’t understand why the studio, Paramount, wouldn’t go for it, honoring every actor and character. It’s perfect, in my opinion.

It’s by John Alvin, a prolific film poster artist who died in 2008 at the age of sixty. Fortunately, his work has been compiled into a book, including much that had been rejected or unused.

The original digital version of this poster, the thumbnail, is a bit dull, so I upped the contrast, making the black deeper, and added some color.

The theatrical poster is cool, too, with an ominous Christopher Plummer as General Chang lurking in the stars among the background. My favorite, though, is the teaser poster, showing the ridges on a Klingon’s head and the Enterprise in dramatic fashion. — ajh

Once Again, Thanks, Mr. Spock

Thanks to Leonard Nimoy, the original, one-and-only Mr. Spock, updating his Facebook page about three hours ago, I have learned that the teaser trailer for the next Star Trek flick has been released. He wants to know what the fans think of it. So I am heading off into cyberspace to find and watch it. There’s also Klingons in the news, which I’ll write about later.
