Posted Thu Jul 11, 2013 at 05:30 PM PDT by

J.J. Abrams' latest sci-fi/action blockbuster will set a course for Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D this September!

As previously reported, Paramount is preparing 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack and 'Star Trek Into Darkness - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack for release later this year, and now the date has been set for September 10.

When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis. With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

"I'm excited for viewers at home to check out Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-ray and DVD," said J.J. Abrams. "They did a great job and I'm thrilled with how everything looks and sounds. We also have some really fun behind-the-scenes special features that we shot on the Red and created entirely in-house at Bad Robot. They really look amazing and unlike anything I've seen on DVD or Blu-ray before." Abrams added "I hope fans enjoy seeing the process that went into making the movie and the truly amazing work of our most spectacular cast and crew."

Each Blu-ray/DVD/Ultraviolet combo pack will feature 1080p video, a Dolby TrueHD 7.1 soundtrack, and supplements include: Creating the Red Planet – Experience the creation of a never-before-seen alien world, as featured in the action-packed opening sequence of the film; Attack on Starfleet – Go behind the scenes with the cast and filmmakers and witness the creation of the shocking attack on Starfleet Headquarters; The Klingon Home World – Discover the stunning world of Kronos, and see how the filmmakers reinvented the Klingons for a new generation; The Enemy of My Enemy – Find out how, and why, the identity of the film's true villain was kept a mystery to the very end; Ship to Ship – An in-depth and thrilling look at the filming of the iconic space jump sequence, which both defied the laws of physics and pushed the limits of visual effects; Brawl by the Bay – Sit in with Zachary Quinto and Benedict Cumberbatch as they revisit their intense preparation for the film's breathtaking climax; and Continuing the Mission – An inspiring look at the partnership between the film's crew and the organization that assists returning veterans to find meaningful ways to contribute on the home front.
