Memories seem to get shorter during the summer movie season. Even if we’ve been following a blockbuster for years, the instant it opens, we’re on to the next one. Who cares about Iron Man 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, or Fast and Furious 6, when Man of Steel is coming, right? But once that’s out, it’ll be on to Pacific Rim and then The Wolverine, extending through to the release of Star Wars Episode IX, Star Trek 5 and Spider-Man vs. The Avengers.
On that note, it’s good to step back and dig into these blockbusters after we’ve had our way with them. Take Star Trek Into Darkness, for example. The J.J. Abrams-directed sequel is still in theaters. Whether you love it, hate it, or or are somewhere in the middle, it’s a towering technical achievement. There are IMAX 3D scenes, massive digital effects and the re-introduction of the most famous Trek villains of all: The Klingons, sure to appear in a third film.
After the jump, check out some concept art detailing the look of the Klingons in the film as well as some designs of the spacesuits.
Thanks to Film Sketcher (via IO9) for these images. First up, the Klingons. You didn’t get a chance to really look at them very closely in the film and, with a return in Star Trek 3 likely, it’s nice to check them out.
And here are some images of the spacesuits in the film:
Head to that first link for a few more images too. The majority of the work is by Constantine Sekeris and the Khan is by Keith Christensen.
Has Star Trek Into Darkness aged well for you…in the past 3 weeks?
