Pop Culture Roundup 41
by TeemunnyPublished on Friday, December 7, 2012
It’s the triumphant return of Pop Culture Roundup. The forty-first edition is coming straight at your dome.
Captain’s log, stardate 1207.12, the poster (/Film points out a common trend with these posters) and teaser trailer (above) for Star Trek Into Darkness has been released. This is J. J. Abrams‘ second installation of the franchise reboot. It’s what you’d expect, an enchilada filled with next-level action and innovative eye candy. That shit cray. Another plus, looks like Abrams has toned down the lens flares. There is the Japanese version of the trailer below with some extra footage. Soak it in, Redshirts. The film opens on May 17, 2013.

Man of Steel (Official Poster)
Here’s the first official poster for Oblivion, the new film from Tron Legacy director Joseph Kosinski. The movie casts Tom Cruise as a drone repairman who is stationed on an Earth that has seen better days, to put things mildly. The first image sells a grand vision of an almost fossilized Manhattan, with Cruise in the now-standard poster stance. via /Film
