New Star Trek Photos

It looks like Paramount is finally ramping up their advertising efforts on what they hope will be next year’s hit summer film, Star Trek (May 8, 2009).  A week after Entertainment Weekly’s feature on the film (click for related article), the British magazine Empire has their own cover feature.  Check out the cover (click to enlarge), three new in-film photos and two new publicity stills of Zachary Quinto (Spock) and Chris Pine (Kirk), as well as an excerpt from the article.

The cover shot is actually a re-creation of a classic Kirk (Shatner)/Spock (Nimoy) pose (click to ‘energize’):

Director J.J. Abrams on the film’s wardrobe:

“For me, the costumes were a microcosm of the entire project, which was how to take something that’s kind of silly and make it feel real. But how do you make legitimate those near-primary colour costumes? How do you make legitimate the pointy ears and the bowl haircut? It’s ridiculous and as potentially cliched as it gets. How do you watch Galaxy Quest and then go make a Star Trek movie?”

And here are the pictures (click to see full size at Empire):

Kirk (Chris Pine) in an EVA suit along with Sulu (John Cho) in a shuttle. (TrekMovie notes that the actor to the left of Pine could be Greg Ellis, who plays Chief Engineer Olsen)

Spock (Zachary Quinto) in front of what appears to be a window (note the visible saucer)

Uhura (Zoe Saldana) talking with Kirk (Pine) and Chekov (Anton Yelchin) in the forefront
