If you got a chance to read our interview with artist Matt Ferguson last month, it should come to you as no surprise that his latest print is for the upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness movie. Yesterday, Cromeyellow – one of our favorite sites, got the coveted exclusive and released the poster to the hoards of faithful Star Trek fans.
Rather than go with the obvious Kirk or Spock images, Matt wisely chose the villain, Benedict Cumberbatch, as his focal point. Matt even brilliantly incorporated J.J. Abrams signature lens flare which touches upon what appears to be the eminent demise of the Starship Enterprise.
Cromeyellow also let us know how Matt plans to follow up this project. Being a die hard Star Trek fan, Matt is working on a set of posters for all the other Star Trek movies. Matt Ferguson… artist… Trekkie… and lover of cakes… boldly going where no man has gone before. (Say that last part in your best William Shatner voice.) Follow Matt on Twitter to find out when he drops his next prints. May he live long and prosper.
If you are like me, Matt’s piece has me even more pumped to see this movie which opens on May 17th. Watch this new featurette where J.J. Abrams talks about the film.
