Default lack of McCoy in advertising!!!

Hi,

I'm very concerned at the lack of McCoy/Urban in the advertising!!!

it seems to me he has been replaced by Uhura.

I hope they are keeping the original Big Three in place

Seriously....Uhura is cool and all, but she never was a SUPER important character. Bones on the other hand, was. If his screen time doesn't end up being more than hers, I'm gonna fight someone

I wouldn't worry about it. Posters don't indicate who gets more screen time.

I guess it's just to show that a woman has an important part here and that Trek is also cool for female viewers.
Perhaps they should even use the movie's kids (little Spock looks like a friend of mine) to attract younger viewers.

Yes, that it. Broader appeal. Too many males on the poster isn't good for business.

The ships are female, of course... but just the fans know that

I wouldn't worry too much yet, as Omegaman said, it's not necessarily a pointer to his total screen time etc.
