Star Trek: Into Darkness Poster by Paul Shipper


Star Trek: Into Darkness opens in theaters this week and of course we over here at Abduzeedo are looking forward to watching it. These blockbuster movies always generate a lot of fan art and it's always amazing to see the work that people can do just for fun and of course to have the opportunity to work on something really cool like their favorite movie. In my opinion, Paul Shipper created a poster that is better than any of the official posters so we just had to share it with you today.

Paul Shipper poster reminds me those classic Drew Struzan movie posters for Indiana Jones, Back to the Future, Rambo and Star Wars film series.

Paul Shipper Specializes in Traditional and Digitally Illustrated Works of Art for the Entertainment, Advertising and Publishing Industries all over the World from his Studio in Hamilton, New Zealand.

Growing up in the UK with a pencil permanently attached to his hand and realizing his talent for the visual, Paul followed art and design through high school and college before graduating with a BA in Illustration in 1997.



“My training came from years of drawing and painting, studying the works of my illustrative heroes and driven by my passion and determination to making a dream become reality.”

Exclusively premiering on today, this artwork is presented alongside even more 'Into Darkness' inspired alternative movie poster goodness, from some of my talented 'Poster Posse Project' Pals Matt Ferguson, Marko Manev, Marie Bergeron, Adam Rabalais, Rodolfo Reyes, Johnny Dombrowski, Fernando Reza, Tim Anderson and Joe Vetoe.
