All right, we’ve got one more big bit of 4K UHD news for you.
As we first revealed a few weeks go, Paramount has just officially announced the 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray release of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness on 6/14.
Both titles will include new 4K UHD transfers with High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos soundtracks. Each will be a 3-disc combo pack including a 4K UHD disc, 2 Blu-ray Discs (a movie disc and a special features disc), and digital copy. You can see the cover artwork below... [Read on here…]
There are no new extras on either release, but the good news is that all of the special features from the previous Blu-ray releases of the film will be included here (see our review of the Star Trek: The Compendium Blu-ray set for all the details). Note that Star Trek Into Darkness will include the IMAX version for both the 4K and BD versions. SRP for each is $47.99, but you can expect a more rational sale price on Amazon.com and elsewhere. We’ll add the Amazon.com pre-order links for each as soon as they’re available.
