I can definitely understand the frustration over this release, but cancelling your orders? Surely owning the actual movie takes precedent if you really appreciated it? Is relatively sparse bonus content worth cutting yourselves off from enjoying the film at home?
This.

I'm still picking it up on September 10th. I want the film in all of its 1080p glory. Special features are something I may look at once if I'm bored.
It's the principle. Do you want a slippery slope of increasingly slimy behavior and abuse of the fans? Then, sure, keep buying into what Paramount Marketing tells you to buy. If Star Trek taught me anything, it's that principles matter and making a stand against unfair practices is far, far more important than instant gratification. Like the "this far and no farther" speech from Picard in First Contact. Don't let Paramount assimilate you or we all lose.
