STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS


DIRECTOR J.J. ABRAMS’ WORLDWIDE BLOCKBUSTER SETS A COURSE FOR BLU-RAY™, BLU-RAY 3D™ AND DVD
SEPTEMBER 10, 2013


Global Hit Debuts Three Weeks Early on Digital August 20th



HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Lauded by critics as “a sleek, thrilling epic” (Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly), “a clever, exhilarating action adventure” (Claudia Puig, USA Today) and “stratospherically entertaining” (Peter Travers, Rolling Stone), director J.J. Abrams’ phenomenal global sensation STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS makes its highly-anticipated debut on Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand on September 10, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. Fans can be the first to own the film on Digital when it arrives three weeks early on August 20th. Boasting “spectacular visual effects” (Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer) and “one of the best villains in recent memory” (Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News) STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS delighted audiences around the world, earning a coveted A CinemaScore.

"I'm excited for viewers at home to check out Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray and DVD," said J.J. Abrams. "They did a great job and I'm thrilled with how everything looks and sounds. We also have some really fun behind-the-scenes special features that we shot on the Red and created entirely in-house at Bad Robot. They really look amazing and unlike anything I've seen on DVD or Blu-ray before." Abrams added "I hope fans enjoy seeing the process that went into making the movie and the truly amazing work of our most spectacular cast and crew."

I hope so, I've come to love this feature but can see where some may not care for it in some setups.

I hope not. Variable aspect and CIH don't work. I would personally much rather have a constant aspect, or at least have that as an option like Transf 2 gave us. I can see the appeal of VA for 1.78 users, but it would be great if all VA releases had a constant aspect option for those who can't take advantage of VA.

Can't wait to own it.

I saw this in amc with "4k sony projector" digital theater, the picture was outstanding!. But i also notice some week bass in that cinema,so hopefully the bluray will be more awesomeness :)

Pre ordered it on Amazon!
post #10 of 60
Already did when the bluray was number one bluray 3d on amazon. Good deal too. Got the email about the release date. Will get it the week of the 10th.
post #11 of 60
Great production... unfortunately a stupid story that I can't bother to own. This will be the first "Star Trek" (I use the label loosely) I don't buy. Pass.
post #12 of 60
I enjoyed it in the theater despite the fact that it did not take long to figure out who the villian really was and that they were reversing the Kirk/Spock situation from a previous Star Trek movie. Will buy the 3d version.

Pretty good movie in theaters. It kind of hit the "mediocrity" that some sequels are hitting, that maybe there's something slightly too generic about them... but it was still a super worthy sequel to the wonderful 2009 film.

My issue in theaters was with the sound. It was very piercing to the ear. I wonder if it was just my theater or if it was the actual audio mix. Time will tell on that one.

Which AMC, Burbank, Century City, Santa Monica, or other. Was it with ETX or Imax by chance. Most of the AMC's have decent projection but sound can vary by theater.

Our local AMC is usally good. I am spoiled however. With the exception of size. I have always obtained cleaner more dynamic audio playback when viewing a Blu-ray in lossless audio at home on my system than in the theater. The fact that it's more enjoyable at home helps a lot! biggrin.gif

My guess the theatre. It wasn't piercing to the ear the one I watched it at the audio was actually calibrated right. Sounded awesome.

I saw it in the Paramount screening room in NYC. SFX were ear-piercing and I had to wear ear buds; dialogue was much lower and quiet scenes led to some frustration. I would hope that theater has their sound well-calibrated.

Time will tell...

Is this when you're watching the movie and you see the black bar on top/bottom, then all of a sudden it goes to full screen (16:9)? I just saw this happen in The Dark Knight and my buddy and I thought we were going crazy.

I was floored by this chapter of MR. JJ Abrams Star Trek re-boot in very sense, I laugh, I cried, emotions were all over the place, and to think that my NY local post news paper reviewer said it was flat out boring (WHAT!)..I suggest he would grab so Heron the next time he watches it again. I can't wait to get this in my hands, and I can't wait for number 3 that's for sure.

I can't believe Roberto Orci, Alex Kurtzman, and Damon Lindelof still get writing gigs. They're mediocre hacks.

A must pass film.
post #26 of 60
I enjoyed this movie quite a bit but thought the 3D could have been better. It was good though. Also as with most movies like this the action scenes where over done. Cool movie though. I will probably just buy the 2D Bluray unless the 3D version isn't that much more expensive.

Looking forward to this one so much so I have pre ordered it without seeing it in the cinema but since the last one was such a great refresh I don't think it going to be bad at all.

I'd rent it first. You may or may not regret blind buying it.

Another conversion job to get people to pay more for their tickets, and it didn't look like they shot it with 3D in mind in the first place. IMHO.

Did you see the movie? In the opening scene there are spears flying right at the camera. Likewise when Kirk flies through the debris field between starships. Not only was it obviously shot with 3D in mind, but gimmicky 3D at that (rarely done these days).
