The fan favorite has been remastered in 4K and will be getting a new Blu-ray release in June.
In an early announcement to retailers, Paramount will be releasing 'Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan: Director's Cut (Remastered in 4K)' on Blu-ray on June 7.
Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan is fondly regarded as being the closest in spirit to the 1966-69 TV series that spawned it. Admiral Kirk (William Shatner) escapes the tedium of a desk job to join Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy (DeForest Kelley) on another space mission. While boldly going where no man etc. etc., Kirk crosses the path of his old enemy Khan (Ricardo Montalban), who as any die-hard Trekker can tell you, was the chief antagonist in the 1966 Trek TV episode "Space Seed." Leading a crew of near-savage space prisoners, Khan insinuates himself into the Genesis Project, which is designed to introduce living organisms on long-dead planets. Intending to harness this program for his own despotic purposes, Khan engages in battle with the Enterprise crew. ~ Daniel Gelb, Rovi.
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the release will include both the theatrical and director's cuts and the current price for the Blu-ray is $14.99.
