“Mr. Scott, an alien object of unbelievable destructive power is less than two days away from this planet. The only starship in interception range is the Enterprise. Ready or not, she launches in twelve hours.”
Bob Peak’s superb ‘Beam me up Scotty’ artwork was so striking and successful that the imagery was used for the worldwide marketing campaign for Robert Wise’s sci-fi epic “Star Trek The Motion Picture”, the first big screen cinematic outing for Captain Kirk & the crew of the starship Enterprise. From first year of release 1979 this exceptional British UK three sheet film poster (very scarce as a large format three sheet) is a beautifully realised piece of Star Trek artwork. Originally folded (as issued) this fantastic looking poster displays superbly and looks superb in the larger format of the three sheet poster; it really suits Bob Peak’s beautiful design. With a bright spectrum of vivid colour tones it represents a fine piece of very collectable original science fiction film poster movie memorabilia from the much loved TV / Movie series.
Trivia: William Shatner, (Captain Kirk) who saw the completed movie for the first time at the world premiere, was struck by the overall sluggishness of the movie, and was convinced that the Star Trek franchise died there and then. He reminisced, “Well, that’s it. We gave it our best shot, it wasn’t good, and it will never happen again.” But, having recalled his reaction fifteen years later, he has added, “Shows you what I know.”…more detail
