The folks over at Collider and Slashfilm have unveiled a number of special edition collectible posters that Trekkies attending tomorrow’s one-night-only “Star Trek Marathon” and screenings of Star Trek Beyond this weekend may receive. For the marathon, which is being held in select IMAX and PLF (premium large-screen format) theaters, all three films from the rebooted Star Trek series, including 2009’s Star Trek, 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness and this year’s Star Trek Beyond, are set to be shown.
Gallery 1988, an art gallery located in Los Angeles, and Paramount Pictures collaborated on the posters, which artists Jeffrey Everett and Matt Taylor designed; the landscape IMAX ones are the works of Taylor, and the PLF portrait ones come courtesy of Everett.
The rest of the posters will be handed out at select Real 3D and IMAX 3D screenings at theater chains nationwide, including AMC, Arclight, Cinemark and Showcase.
While many Trekkies are gearing up for the third installment in the modern Star Trek franchise, yesterday, it was officially announced that a fourth entry is on the way, so expect to see an even longer “Star Trek Marathon” in the future when that film is on the verge of release
“Star Trek Beyond,” the highly anticipated next installment in the globally popular Star Trek franchise, created by Gene Roddenberry and reintroduced by J.J. Abrams in 2009, returns with director Justin Lin (“The Fast and the Furious” franchise) at the helm of this epic voyage of the U.S.S. Enterprise and her intrepid crew. In “Beyond,” the Enterprise crew explores the furthest reaches of uncharted space, where they encounter a mysterious new enemy who puts them and everything the Federation stands for to the test.
Star Trek Beyond is set for release on July 22nd and features returning cast members Chris Pine as James Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Simon Pegg as Scotty, Zoë Saldana as Uhura, Karl Urban as Bones, John Cho as Sulu and Anton Yelchin as Chekov alongside new additions Idris Elba (Luther), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Joe Taslim (The Raid), Lydia Wilson (About Time) and Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog).
