Yes, there was a group of photos that looked like someone took for personal use (not good quality) while the actors were posing for publicity shots. That probably explains the angle here - the main shot would have been from the front. I like this side view, though.
Then where are those publicity shots with the three of them? I keep seeing pics like yours or footage of them taking the shots but I never see the result! The only ones I've seen are the ones with Pine and Quinto together then the one with Karl Urban by himself. I want the trio! Hahaha Stupid marketing.
