I popped into the blu-ray.com forum thread about this blu-ray and noticed many positive comments about STID with the odd Trekkie complaint. A lot of people out there really enjoyed this movie !
And dozens of Trekkies everywhere screamed in nerd rage!
I don't have a 3DTV but I also noticed in there a few people say that the 3D is the best they have ever seen on blu-ray!

Stop it! I only have the 2D version and don't want to buy this movie again until we have a complete version!

Well there's that sentiment, but the fact of it is the first release of a DVD is seldom going to have all the extras if any. It's a common enough marketing ploy to release a Director's Cut of Special Edition a few months later and double dip in a few places.
You're referring to extended editions. And that might be relevant if this were an extended edition, but it's not, or if the only other nuTrek release didn't already do it right and have all the extras in one package!

Keep in mind comments about the movie and comments about the Blu-ray (i.e., movie gets a 'A' and extras get an 'F') are two completely different issues.

Bad news. The download code from the Target edition of Star Trek: Into Darkness, when redeemed in iTunes, no longer gives you the commentary. All it did for me was just give me a Star Trek (2009)/Star Trek Into Darkness double feature.
I still see posts about people getting the commentary. Has anyone else experienced a bait-and-switch?

How does IMAX compare to 4K. In 2 years, it may be reasonable to film the threequel in 4K, but who knows.
IMAX 15/70 film (not a digital cameral) is higher resolution than even 4K digital. When we have 8K in the home (though I can't imagine a typical house having enough space for that to matter), then we will be able to fully resolve 15/70 IMAX film.

I suspect the commentary is only available at 720, but I think TrekCore is suggesting there is a 1080 version. I just wanted to be sure before I bother going to additional measures to secure a superior version!
It's only 720p; there's no 1080 version available. It was our error which has since been corrected.

Many thanks! You chaps have provided a sterling service reference this release - much appreciated!

Debuts at no. 1 on multiple home video charts here in the States with 72% of the purchases being Blu-ray.

Paramount's laughing all the way to the bank.

Re: Star Trek Into Darkness out on Blu-ray/DVD September 10th [spoiler

I tried to buy the Blu-ray locally in three shops and they were all sold out--even at one where the price was full pop. DVDs were available, but I've been buying Blu-ray since 2007, so that's a non-starter for me (unless a release is only available on DVD).

But the great mystery is why are they selling so many copies of a film that was a complete disappointment and flop?

I'm guessing everyone needs a copy so they can watch it over and over, dissect it down to the smallest detail then tell everyone how much they hate it.

Because it was only those two things to a select, limited number of Trek fans.

And they'll probably still treat Star Trek like crap regardless of how much money they make off this release.

How exactly are they treating Trek like 'crap'? By spending a ton of money to make a fun and exciting movie that most people enjoy?

Your statement makes absolutely no sense.

If I may apply some serenitytrek1 math and discount all Bluray sales, then Star Trek Into Darkness is actually a massive flop on home video!

By doing things like taking all the bonus features that were created for STID and splitting them up as retailer exclusives. Sure you can say that you probably don't give a crap about bonus features, but that still doesn't account for the lack of an Imax version of the film that other studios who have made films short partially in Imax have released. Also the fact that they're still doing nothing to make the original Star Trek films look the best they possibly could. The Director's Edition of TMP, TWOK and TUC (All three films have three unique versions) are no where to be seen and the picture quality is still crap even on the TWOK that they even marketed as getting restored. The menus were all generic, copy-paste material with only the soundtrack being the main difference (At least the James Bond BluRays have footage of the said Bond film playing in the background).

Meanwhile, 20th Century Fox is re-releasing films like Patton, The French Connection and Predator on BluRay to address the criticisms that were specifically made towards the quality of their original releases (Or in Predator's case, re-release), while Paramount is just sitting on their Star Trek library and coming up with ways to make more money without putting much effort into making an overall high quality product.

We know they're capable of making a great product because they've done it before. Trek09, despite not liking the JJ films is still one of the best disc releases a Star Trek movie has ever had. During the heyday of the DVD format, the original 10 movies got quality treatment when they released each film as a collector's edition, giving us alternate versions of the film, newly recorded commentary tracks by those involved in making the films (Not fan commentary tracks they did for the BluRays). They even had disc art on the actual discs before they dropped it in favor of generic gray/blue backgrounds that we now have today.

The only studio that's putting a lot of care and effort into creating a great Star Trek product is CBS, who recently announced that they would be handling all the remaining seasons of TNG in-house due to criticisms of seasons 2 and 4 being subpar to the quality thanks to them being outsourced to other studios. When there were mistakes in the audio for Season 1, CBS not only sent four out of the originally announced three BluRay discs that were known to have problems, (Fourth disc correcting a missing phaser blast in "Heart of Glory"), they even included a post card with the pencil sketched artwork of the Officer's Lounge as seen in the opening title sequence.

Paramount shouldn't be treating their films, nor their loyal money spending fans like this.

No one is forcing you to buy the current versions. I can guarantee that there will be another release somewhere down the roan and I can't blame Paramount for providing retailers what they want to sell.
