Star Trek Into Darkness DVD & Blu-ray release date revealed

News Simon Brew 11 Jul 2013 - 07:03

JJ Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness heads to disc in September, and digital services in August...

JJ Abrams might have switched his attention to the small matter of Star Wars: Episode VII now, but there's still the DVD and Blu-ray release of this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness coming up too. The movie pulled in $444m at the worldwide box office (against the $385m of the 2009 reboot), and another film is surely assured now, even if Abrams may not have the time to direct it himself.

However, we do now know when Star Trek Into Darkness is arriving on DVD and Blu-ray, in the US at least. The film has been confirmed for release on September 10th 2013, and we'd imagine that the UK release will fall in line with that.

On the Blu-ray, special features include featurettes on Creating The Red Planet, Attack On Starfleet, The Klingon Home World, how the villain was kept as secret as possible, a look at the space jump sequence and how Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch went about preparing for their sequence near the end of the film.

Furthermore, the film will be available digitally a little earlier. Its digital release is earmarked for August 20th.

Will either be the 2nd of sept as that is the current prelim release date. it could also be the 16th sept as that is the next Monday and most uk releases are on a Monday!

Isn't the 9th Sept the next Monday after the 2nd?

Indeed but that is iron man 3's release date unless they come out same day which would be amazing!

Sunday 8th September is the 47th anniversary of the first showing of "Man Trap" (the first episode of the original Star Trek TV show) in the USA... so the 9th makes sense.

First time ever, regarding a Star Trek release, that I honestly couldn't give a damn. (And ToS wasn't even my Star Trek, it came later for me).

Urgh.

I can't deny that I'm excited to add this one to my movie collection - I loved it in theatres.

Oh good, let's hope they have a point in the inevitable commentary where they attempt to justify why having four full years to come up with a strong story, they decided instead to just rip off an earlier and infinitely superior 'Star Trek' film and pass it off as a 'homage'... Kurtzman and Orci, we're onto you...

"How the villain was kept as secret as possible" = denials and straight-out lies for over a year.

Can't wait. Loved this a ridiculous amount.
