With Target getting an exclusive Bonus Disc with more special features. We here in the U.K. stand no chance of getting the full range of special features that the American customers will. This is just the whole Into Darkness situation again. Really not fair.

Since the BBFC have reviewed the special features on the second disc, I believe they will be on disc in the UK.

The BBFC also reviewed some of Into Darkness’ special features that ended up being Target exclusives.

Sainsbury’s had the exclusive bonus disk included with Into Darkness when that was released on blu ray, hopefully they will have this one too.

Correct me if i’m wrong but didn’t those exclusives form part of the itunes digital copy anyway?

Scratch that last post. Forgot about the extra 33 mins of bonus content…for some bizarre reason.

Wonderful addition to the home video canon. Whatever I may think of certain artistic decisions, I wish well for this release.

Day 1 buy of the 4k edition for me!

Is “best action movie of the year” the appropriate review to place on the cover for a Star Trek movie cover, even fire the J.J. universe?

Definitely not!

Appropriate for making more money

Well, The Wrath of Khan and First Contact were decent action movies.

Cant wait to add it ti the collection! :] Such a great and fun Star Trek movie imo.

That’s crazy. It doesn’t even open in Japan until October 21. That’s literally 2 weekends, not even 2 full weeks, before it’s released on home video. STID made over half of it’s $10 million dollar box office after the second weekend. This will definitely impact how much Japan will make.

Oh well. I’m actually pretty confident that Home video will do very well for STB, even though I wouldn’t expect DVD & Blu-Ray to do particularly well.

To me, it sounds like the logical deduction is Paramount is throwing in the towel and wanting as much early cash as they can drag out of this release. Did I like the movie? About as much as I like TFF (both had some great moments, but I didn’t really like them). Will I own it? I own TFF, so yes.

Into Darkness grossed $83 million in DVD/BLUE Ray sales. Beyond will likely do at least as well

Does it come with a replica motorcycle?

That literally made me LOL. :). Good one.

It’s a movie and yes compromises need to be made. But it’s also Star Trek. Part of me wants it to make the most money of any movie ever conceived. (The quixotic part.)

Trek lives.

Nice to see Paramount’s miss-handeling of Star Trek Beyond is complete by releasing the film too soon on Digital Download, DVD & Bluray, while the film is still in the Cinemas making nearly as much as Into Darkness & Star Trek (2009) made a week which lasted for another 10+ weeks on their releases & before it has even opened in Japan?
Why am I surprised, Paramount has been trying to abort its own baby since 1969.

Sounds like Paramount just wants to put this flop to bed…for good.

Not quite a flop. $337 million in global box office as of last week. Blue ray/DVD and TV/streaming licensing will push it well beyond $400 million.

I’m disappointed that no audio commentary is included. I enjoy them!

Me too.

October 4! Golly; that’s quick! iTunes for me then!! It just goes to show that there was really no point in me going to the cinema for this if the film was going to hit the video market in so short a time. Instead, can relax on my settee with a beer and a steak, rather than sit uncomfortably in a theatre with the sound turned up too loud, people talking, using their mobile phones and chomping on popcorn! And the download will be only a couple of quid more than a single cinema ticket!!

Hold on, I just read that part … the film will be available for digital download on October 4!? Two weeks BEFORE it even opens in Japan!?

What kind of stupid decision is that!? They’ve all but guaranteed that the potential $10+ million box office STID got will be forfeited. By the time the film opens in Japan, they will all have downloaded it and seen it already. It was bad enough releasing the Blu-ray 10 days after it opened, but a digital download doesn’t even take any work to pirate. And I’m not sure what it gets them. At least a late September release got them a boost for their fiscal quarter results. Paramount must be expecting even bigger losses in the December quarter.


No UK release date announced yet. I’m holding out for the UK 3D release which is only $22 on amazon uk (they take the 20% VAT off for export) vs. $30 on amazon us plus the shipping is cheaper from amazon uk.

The UK disc date is November 21st, so I imagine the digital HD release will be in the first week of that month.

Won’t matter. They’ll already be sharing the pirated version from the October 4th US digital HD release …

I’m going to be an optimist here and suggest that most fans on this site wouldn’t pirate a Trek movie, even one that didn’t perform too well.
In any case, that wasn’t really the basis of Binyamin’s query was it?

Tobeornottobe2 – thanks, I see that shows Nov 21 but doesn’t show a date yet. Zoom unfortunately only ships in the UK which doesn’t help me.

Hopefully Curious Cadet was talking about the pirating in a disparaging tone while pointing out the marketing lunacy of releasing digital versions at different times based on geography.


Ah well. Fair enough.

Didn’t take long for this bomb to make DVD, bbbahhhhhaaa!!!!!

I hope you find happiness in your life someday….

I wonder if the deleted scenes will be the branching type, so the film can be watched with them in place where they would have been if not cut? I wonder how much time they add overall to the running time?

Over at Trekcore they say it’s only 1 minute of deleted scenes. That is 2 scenes with a total length of one minute.

I thought I read they cut a lot out of the film….and only two deleted scenes? Or was it they wrote a lot more and never filmed them?

@ TUP: If I remember correctly, Justin Lin said in an interview that a lot of stuff was cut from the script even before filming. They had a longer first cut of the movie, but that was trimmed down by shaving off individual frames here and there, not by getting rid of complete scenes.

No mention of any of the trailers, teasers and tv spots. Did I miss something? One cannot assume they will be included unless it is listed as such.

Trailers are going to be on the Target disc it seems.

Did they even bother with a novelization of the film? Never saw the book anywhere.

I was wondering the same. The novelizations for both ST09 and STID came out right around the films’ premiere date but I don’t remember seeing a novelization either in print or as an e-book. I looked on Amazon and saw a “making of” book that’s coming out in November but no novelization. Weird. I look forward to being corrected if I missed it somewhere.

Sadly, there was no novelization.

I would have enjoyed a novelization.

Paramount kinda bungled the job on marketing these movies. I’m imaging a world where STID was promoted as Kirk meets Khan from the beginning, and it went on to be The Dark Knight of this series as intended. And if they had released Beyond on the anniversary with a heavy emphasis on the fact that Trek is turning 50, it probably would’ve been one of the biggest movies of the year. They missed their marks.

fun bit of trivia. When we wrote the first Trek movie, the powers that be asked, “Do we have to call it Star Trek?”

Oh I just gotta ask . . . What did they suggest as a better title?

boborci different studio I know, but they could have gotten some great marketing tips from whoever thought Edge of Tomorrow would be a great name for a blockbuster Tom Cruise time travel alien invasion flick.

Maybe because the movie was so poor they realised it wasnt really Star Trek anyway.

You probably have to take whatever Bob says with a grain of salt. When someone insults people as much as him and makes everything bad everyone else’s fault its hard to believe him. Actually he reminds me of a less effective Donal Trump in that regard! lol Bob might have been the worst thing to happen to Star Trek since someone thought Insurrection was a good idea.

Insane. Just….insane.

Bob – read that Kahn wasn’t supposed to be Kahn. Makes sense now to me. Feel bad you were put in that spot.

True, making that character Khan was stupid. But they knew going in it was likely to be made Khan. I think that was the deal – if it fit, then he’d be Khan. Well I dont know who decided it fit.

On the other hand, if it wasnt Khan, who would it be? Just some other augment running around?

STID was such a poorly written film from the beginning with the pushing of biased political positions that undercut the plot and the characters. Take Khan out of it and you remove a stupid and insulting item, but its still an awful film. And if you dont have Khan but still have an augment, everyone will say “why not just use Khan?” So yeah, use Khan. Just write a better movie.

@boborci I’d be extremely happy if Disney took Trek movies away from Paramount and kept Bad Robot making them


“the powers that be asked, “Do we have to call it Star Trek?””

Guess they wanted a bigger and edgier title? Better call it GALAXY TREK! smh

Well they finally got their way, and calling it just “Beyond” didn’t work. I’ll never forget that huge billboard off the 101 freeway that just said BEYOND with an Enterprise jetting over the top from an Unrecognizable angle. It could have been an ad for Bed Bath & Beyond.

Good thing no one listened to the bean counters, otherwise you may not have ended up with the record breaking Trek Into Darkness. Why they see the inclusion of the title as a liability, especially for Beyond, when Star Trek Into Darkness made more money worldwide than any that came before it, is “beyond” me. Is common sense really that fleeting in the movie industry?

I’m imagining a world where the script for the Kahn characters was written for Kahn from the beginning – i.e. a genetically engineered superhuman is mistakenly put in a position of power and uses it to take over Starfleet. Can Kirk connect the dots and save the Federation?? I think that would have been an infinitely more fun movie than “poor Kahn, George Bush stole your family and wants to fire cruise missiles at the Klingons because you, er, beamed across the galaxy making starships irrelevant, er, in Star Trek”. Wait, doesn’t make sense – let’s crash a Starship into San Fran. Cooooooolllll!!!

You guys say what you will, but I loved STID and think it had potential to be that breakout sequel — if it had been advertised well from the beginning. A Kirk v. Khan matchup would’ve been irresistible to the masses and to Trek fans alike, but instead it wound up being…generic action sequel. Basically like Beyond, another good film underutilized by the studio powers that be. Guess Trek will always be that less popular alternative to the mainstream goodies. And ya know what, I’m ok with that too.

Nice to get confirmation on this release date. I’m planning to pre-order the trilogy gift pack when I get paid next. I need to upgrade my copy of ST09 to Blu-Ray since I only have it on DVD plus I really want that model of the Franklin they are offering. I personally loved Beyond and am looking forward to watching it with the ability to pause and look for background details.

Why on earth have Paramount changed the placeholder cover art. Before it was a fantastic STMP style cover now this cheap looking render! Not totally surprised really probably the same PR company that created the franchise sinking beastie boys trailer! ST4 is still likely but with a reduced budget now. Paramount should give us the Bob Orci ST3 as ST4 instead! But that is most likely never going to happen either now is it.

Wow. Things are looking really bad for Paramount …

Moody’s downgrades Viacom credit – Los Angeles Times


Paramount Pictures shake-up; Vice Chairman Rob Moore pushed out – Los Angeles Times

I don’t think many will be surprised by this, especially after Paramount’s near half a billion dollar loss. Most expected this to happen last month when he was to be called before the Viacom board.

@John Duchak,

After Brad Grey was given a dressing down during that Viacom board meeting according to Deadline and THR, most people thought that he was about to get kicked out. Alas, he managed to stay at least for now.

They’re setting him up for failure.

@Curious Cadet,

And so it begins!

Hopefully they’ve learned their lesson and won’t be splitting the content anmongst different retailers like they did for Into Darkness. I hated that.

Given the movie fared relatively poorly at the worldwide box office, I doubt Paramount would bother with any of that. They seem to regard it as a bit of a lost cause, so why go the extra mile?. I doubt said retailers would be that enthused about it either.

Well i’ve been proven wrong, again. Target have just announced their own Beyond disc, which will have 45 minutes of exclusive content. So the retailers ARE dividing up the content between themselves, as was the case with STID.
You’d think given the movie failed to break even at the box office, and coming after the positively abysmal 50th anniversary ‘celebration’ that we were all treated to, Paramount would at least have the decency to put all of the BEY content onto one disc. But no. Apparently, throwing a bone to the fans is too much of a chore.

STB barely earned $2 million worldwide this weekend. Currently $335,885,083.

STB is done at the box office. Home video is out next week, which is going to completely undermine the Japan box office. STB will be lucky if makes over $340 million now before it closes.

Home video should do pretty well though.

Stick a fork in Star Trek. it’s done.

I seem to recall the Terminator Genisys blu ray, released here in the UK last year, being disc only-no digital copy.
That was a Paramount release. Given that we Brits are already short changed, blu ray wise, by not having the free dvd copy (like our American cousins), and by having an incomplete set of special features, will Paramount go one further in screwing us over by not providing the free Itunes copy on the UK BEY release?

Here it comes — the potential end of Bad Robot Trek

CBS-Viacom merger may be closer to reality, thanks to Redstones and National Amusements – Los Angeles Times l

Paramount do seem to be mismanagement franchises. Terminator Genesis has potential to be a very good movie, based on the concept at least. I think the concept was great. The execution was just not good enough at all unfortunately. Beyond I have not seen and am waiting for the bluray release. Certainly Paramount didn’t market the movie very well really.

So it looks like the digital version is available tomorrow on iTunes. Not sure what I should do.

It’s basically $20 for the HD version and all the iTunes extras — behind the scenes and all the other the other bonus content included with the blu ray.

It’s $15 for the SD version, without the iTunes extras.

Do I really care about the bonus material? The difference between iTunes SD & HD is pretty minimal. I usually rent iTunes movies (when available and STB is not) in SD, as they’re usually a buck or two less, and rarely notice the difference. But this is only $5 for a lot of extra content, and technically better quality. Then again, I don’t really want to pay $15, but it seems like Paramount is no longer renting their big titles.

Paramount’s already got some of my money for this, the question is how much more do I want to give them? $15 is like going to the theater again, and $20 is like going and paying for a large popcorn too, without getting the popcorn.

What’s odd is Target bus disc complexly mirrors extras on standard Blu-ray. So you can watch ALL the available features in on setting minus the iTunes exclusive commentary. Features found on Target bonus disk:Small World, he Battle of Yorktown, Properly Outfitted, Set Phasers to Stunning, Spliced, Beats and Shouting, Visually Effective, Music Video-Sledgehammer, Trailers.
