What hype is there to build?
It's working perfectly. People aren't content to let it sit on shelves to perhaps pick up cheaply in the after-Christmas sales. They want it yesterday. Rabid fanboys are a tiny sector of the more relaxed demographic this film is aimed at.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Here's a TrekMovie item which includes new clips from the Casting (Scotty) and Behind the Scenes featurettes.

New Star Trek DVD/Blu-ray Featurette Clips

Also has a repeat of the breakdown showing which extras are part of which sets, for those who haven't seen them before.

Why was this movie available in stores in other countries before the US? That doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me.
Why was the movie itself premiered in Sydney?
It premiered in Austin

review Blu-ray

Cinematical did a review
My favorite featurettes were "Ben Burtt and the Sounds of Star Trek," "Casting," and "Gene Roddenberry's Vison," because they really address the decision-making that went into re-imagining or reviving the iconography of the series from its '60s origins to today.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Is anyone else amused by the constant banner ads promoting the new Star Trek DVD/Blu-ray on the site today? Isn't that kind of preaching to the choir?

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

I posted this in another thread, too; but I was just checking, and the 3-disc blu-ray edition is #1 at Amazon currently, with the single-disk DVD at #2. That's in all of "Movies and TV."

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

Since I don't have a Blu-Ray (yet) What are my best options when buying a DVD? Widescreen is a given but are there 'different' DVD's available that include more extras or are they all the same?

For DVD, you'll want the Two Disc set. It doesn't have everything the Blu-Ray has, but it's got a lot of nice features, like a behind the scenes featurette, a gag reel, commentaries and the like.

Re: DVD/Blu-Ray Coming November 17th

i purchased the three-disc Blu-ray edition. the steelcase Blu-ray edition is a nice touch but i passed on that option. in early December i'll have a chance to watch the film; should be a great experience judging by the several reviews online.
