No word on an iTunes release date (the Store has an entry for the film although they don't mention a date), although I would guess it'd be roundabout the same time as the DVD/BD date. Sometimes films make iTunes earlier than the disc versions, though.
Something I saw the other day said August for online downloads and September for DVD/Blu-ray.

"Its digital release is earmarked for August 20th."

I don't know, the whole thing made Abrams and his gang look like petulant five year olds. "I know a secret and I'm not telling."
I disagree. Sometimes part of being creative is that you don't want to spoil all of your surprises or that you just want everything to be fresh. That's not childish at all, it's just part of wanting to make an impactful presentation. Maybe the way they went about it was a little weird though.
Don't you think it is more a matter of whether the payoff is worth it? I mean, I can see why Fincher didn't want the weird Tyler Durden reveal publicized before FIGHT CLUB came out, because a good hunk of his audience hadn't read the novel. But that's keeping a secret for a difference that MAKES a difference, whereas this is ... just gimmicky, maybe?
Totally. They wanted to do a mind blowing twist but forgot that in order to do it you can't draw any attention to it or shine any light on it. Instead they light up an entire city block in flashing neon lights and tried to say "nothing to see here folks."

I think the Khan hoopla was to keep the Kirk death scene and Spock's rampage a surprise (which it was, at least to me!)

No deleted scenes or any commentaries?? Seems like they are rushing this release.
A welcome and unexpected bonus it's coming so soon, I'll definitely be picking it up day and date. But it does have a strong whiff of the "double dips" about it! My intuition tells me this won't the only occasion I'll be purchasing STID on home video!
I agree it definitely feels like this is just an initial quick bare bones release with a "Deluxe" edition coming sometime in the future. I may still pick it up though depending on the pricing!

Maybe they thought the payoff was worth it. Or it's possible that Lindelof is a fan of the mystery box with no payoff. Lost would seem to be an indication of that.

I don't think the film would have suffered at all even if Harrison had been simply an augment named Harrison.
Because then its just another lame Khan expy.

Or do you seriously think he wouldn't come off like that?

I'd rather have the real thing (figuratively speaking) then just another pale imitation thank you very much.

Does he even have to be an Augment? If the villain were John Harrison, renegade Starfleet officer turned terrorist fighting for an ideology you'd still have the same movie. The only real change is that there'd be no magic blood that can cure death, but all that means is we can't kill Kirk and rip TWOK off.
I'm still sticking with this

Indeed, it certainly made the movie a whole lot better for me, going into the cinema not knowing a thing about his character.

Also the film shouldn't be punished for people being spoiler whores and ruining it for themselves before they saw the film

All of the Kahn hoo-ha was really just a giant diversion to deflect from the fact that Admiral Marcus was the real villain, Kahn was just a big set up for the next film.

JJ did a great job with that and the entire film, the best in the entire Trek franchise.

When it comes to the DVD, i'm hoping for lots of deleted scenes and a properly good look at that new ship so I don't have to freeze frame it to death like the cool person I am

I was actually trying to be unspoiled for Harrison's identity, but a total buttmunch nuTrek-hater on another website spoiled it for me by somehow acting as if white text against a gray background was as good as actually using spoiler tags.

I mean, really, it's like if you walked into a room in a house, and the walls were painted gray, and there was writing on one wall in white spray paint. I'm not supposed to see that?

Make the character a special ops badass and he could still win against the Klingons, just with something a bit more creative then "beat them as the storm in." The big fight against Spock probably wouldn't happen, or at least be as intense since Kirk wouldn't have been killed and therefore Spock shouldn't be as pissed.

And then the argument currently playing out would include such gems as: "You know, Lindelof, Orci & Kurtzman are cowardly idiots because they missed the perfect opportunity to make this character... Khan Noonien Singh!"

While I'm sure someone would make that argument, I would not be one of them.

Well crap.....

As with the cinematic release, some countries are appereantly getting shafted quite nicely. The release for STID for the Netherlands is a month later then the US release.

Monday 02nd September 2013 for the UK. I'd be so pissed off if there was a delay with delivery by post, so I'll make the effort and be waiting outside my local HMV as the shutters go up!
