This is the first time the director’s cut of the film will be available on Blu-ray (although previously released to Digital HD), and will include a brand new making-of documentary along with over two hours of bonus features.
The Director’s Edition will hit shelves on June 7th, 2016 celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise that debuted as a television series in 1966.
