Kirk Gets His Own Poster For Star Trek Beyond.

Following on from last week's character posters for Star Trek Beyond we now get two more, one of which is Mr Kirk himself.  I love the artwork but one thing that is notably missing from the posters, or at least from the US version are the words 'Star Trek.'  Either the studio is banking on the cultural awareness of the brand name or are they trying to distance themselves from the name so they can bring in a more broader audience?  What do you think?

Vintage Revenge of the Jedi Trailer Found

With Star Wars (1977) and The Empire Strikes Back (1980) taking the world by force, 1982 was a year defined by anticipation for the third and (then) final chapter in the Star Wars saga. The film’s originally promoted title Revenge of the Jedi and its ultimate change to Return of the Jedi has always been of significance to fans. Advertising materials that bear the more aggressive Revenge title reveal how far along the film’s marketing cycle had come prior to George Lucas’ decision to dismiss it in favor of Return. From posters and trailers to merchandising tie-ins, Revenge artifacts represent a compelling period in Star Wars history.

The Academy Film Archive holds several trailers from the United States with the initial Revenge title, most of which announcing a May 25th 1983 release date which coincided with the anniversary of the original Star Wars stateside release in 1977.
