Sounds like standard pricing for a new Hollywood popular blockbuster on Blu-ray.
I wonder how much Paramount will charge for a special collectors edition around 2014?
Will you double dip for 'Star Trek XI' ?
Just buy the Blu-ray in 2009. It was mastered in 2K and HD is only a slight step down. This edition in November has the lossless 5.1 surround audio.
Odds are you will buy a Blu-ray player before 2014 and before an estimated time before a special collectors edition would be out anyway.
