New Star Trek posters

Four more posters for J.J. Abrams' Star Trek movie, exclusively from Paramount. Like the first set, these too make up the Starfleet emblem.
Top row: John Cho as Hikaru Sulu; Simon Pegg as Montgomery Scott.
Bottom row: Karl Urban as Dr. Leonard McCoy; Anton Yelchin as Pavel Chekov.

With these four posters, as well as the previous four, we know have an idea what the eight members of the main cast will look like. The only new character of the eight is Nero, played by Eric Bana; little is known about the character right now though.

Personally, seeing these images gets me even more pumped for the film. I still don't see Cho as Sulu, or Yelchin as Chekov, they just don't look like the originals. Urban as Bones is sort of convincing though, a younger version though, obviously; he just has that scowl. And Scotty, Simon Pegg just has that stare, he's just lucky he didn't have to play the fat Scotty, mustache and all.

I'd also like to mention the classy decision of Paramount to not put Sulu under the yellow filter, thus avoiding any potentional race issues.
