If you’ve got access to a 4K UHD television, you’re definitely going to want to pop one of these babies in for an amazing experience. Both films have been digitally mastered for the 4K UHD transfers and feature Dolby Atmos soundtracks remixed specifically for home theater systems. According to Paramount’s press release:

4K UHD represents the next evolution in home entertainment, offering four times the resolution and more than double the number of colors available with full HD. In addition, these spectacular 4K UHD releases deliver exceptional vibrancy and contrast through High Dynamic Range technology, which reveals hidden details and shades of color that more closely mimic real life.

Each film is presented in a three disc set, which gets you the UHD and standard Blu-ray discs, plus a digital HD copy of the film. And, of course, you also get over three hours of bonus behind-the-scenes content. Here’s a full list of the features:

Likewise, costume designer Michael Kaplan talks about how he designed costumes that paid homage to what came before yet were relevant and timeless.

So people who don’t use twitter or facebook but frequent trekmovie don’t get a chance to win?

All this detailed description of the movie made me want to watch it again on bluray :)
Love the sound effects of the “USS Vengeance”.

I have an off topic question. When there was still the old layout on trekmovie, you could go back pages to older articles even articles years old. Now it seems there are no pages to turn anymore. The oldest article I see at the bottom of the site is from the 8th June and there is no option anymore to turn to page 2, 3, 4 and so on and get an overview of older articles. Can this please be turned back to how it was before?

Mel,

It may look counterintuitive as an address, but this:

http://trekmovie.com/2016/

is how you get there.

Thanks! :-)

I enabled the Archive page, which lets you access all posts, similar to the old theme. It’s not perfect, but it works.
