The Uhura character poster is the first of a series of four which will be revealed over the next few days. Paramount also did character posters for the 2009 Star Trek movie. The first set of four were done for Comic Con 2008 (Uhura, Spock, Kirk and Nero) with another set of four (Scotty, Sulu, McCoy and Chekov) released at the Las Vegas Star Trek con. In the fall of 2008 they released four teaser theater posters with Uhura, Spock, Kirk and Nero. And then in March of 2009 they released four more with McCoy, Sulu, Scotty and Chekov.

Saldana Talks Uhura/Spock future in EW
Speaking of Saldana, she has a brief interview in the new issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine where she talks about the Uhura/Spock relationship. Saldana teases out the film show’s the pair still as a couple in the ‘middle’ of their relationship but she also hinted that the end may come:
It’s always interesting when you tell the story of how two people come to together and when you tell the story of how they end. But [the story] of how they’re living? That’s not as interesting, I guess, even though the middle part is what really matters. There were a lot of things for us to pick from, and there’s a lot [in the new film] for the to be tested by. Whether or not they stay together throughout this? That remains to be seen.
When pressed for more Saldana revealed she didn’t see a long-term future for the pair, saying:
The reality is it doesn’t matter what they do when they are young. They’re still going to end up, we know, being like the characters in the [original 1960s] Gene Roddenberry series. If that’s the case, then they’re not going to be together forever, but to establish a history between them is beautiful.
Perhaps Saldana feels that even in a new timeline, fate will tear Spock and Uhura apart.
Spock and Uhura are still together in "Star Trek Into Darkness" – but Saldana isn’t sure they have a long-term future
