Star Trek Into Darkness comes to Blu-ray and DVD later this month. If you use such services as I-Tunes then you have already been able to download it as Paramount has allowed it be downloaded before it hits retail store shelves.
If you’re looking forward to hours of behind-the-scenes features, don’t get your hopes set to high. Being completely produced in-house by Bad Robot your average Blu-ray release will only include right around 40 minutes. Those 40 minutes will not include such things as deleted scenes, audio commentary, or of trailers for the film. Why you may ask?
The answer to that question is retail exclusives and depending on which retail outlet you buy your copy will determine what special features you get. If you decide to go with the I-Tunes download then you will be some of the lucky few who can get a copy of the movie with an audio commentary.
An example of some of the differences between retail versions and the special features you can see.
No matter where you plan to buy your Blu-ray copy of “Into Darkness” you will be able to get the Digital Download code included with your purchase.
Star Trek Into Darkness was one of the best Star Trek films in some time, but as much as I loved the film there are plenty out there who hate and argue over the fact that J.J. Abrams cast Benedict Cumberbatch as Kahn. Some have said Abrams ruined Star Trek II The Wrath of Kahn. I tend to disagree and see it more as “Space Seed” turned on its ear.
If you liked the 2009 film of Star Trek and have not seen Into Darkness yet then I suggest picking up a copy. You will enjoy.
