While Star Trek Into Darkness was already available to pre-order on Blu-ray Disc & DVD, the actual release date wasn’t revealed until now. Paramount Home Media has announced the film will release to Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, DVD and On Demand on September 10, 2013. What about Digital Download, you might ask? Paramount has decided to initiate an early release for the format, three weeks before on August 20.
Star Trek Into Darkness will be available in several disc editions, including Blu-ray/DVD and Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo packs with UltraViolet digital copies, as well as single-disc DVD with just the feature film. The Blu-ray Discs are formatted in 1080p high definition video with English 7.1 Dolby TrueHD for audio, while the DVD is formatted in 16:9 widescreen format with English 5.1 Dolby Digital.
Along with the feature film on Blu-ray and DVD, Director J.J. Abrams says the discs “have some really fun behind-the-scenes special features that we shot on the Red [camera system] and created entirely in-house at Bad Robot.” See the Blu-ray Disc and DVD content specifications below.
