Star Trek Into Darkness
The newest Trek films are part of the first wave of movies Paramount will release on the new UltraHD Blu-ray format. There are no new special features, they’re the same as The Compendium deluxe two-movie release from a couple of years back, but at least nothing is left out (I’m looking at you first versions of Into Darkness). Into Darkness is an especially good fit considering parts of it were filmed in IMAX and had a theatrical Dolby Atmos mix. Read on to find out how the movies look and sound with the next generation video and audio formats.
We’ve got two copies of Star Trek 2009 and Star Trek Into Darkness in the brand new 4K Ultra HD format to give away. Hit the jump for details on how to win!

But is the advertising for Beyond really that abysmal compared to the previous two films? We’ve constructed an interactive timeline comparing the release of promotional material before Beyond and Star Trek Into Darkness to find out.
With the latest home video format now available, the newest Trek films were obvious choices to release on UltraHD Blu-ray.

Nicholas Meyer didn’t know anything about Star Trek before he was hired as the director for the second film in the franchise – which is still considered by most to be the best.

Bruce Greenwood’s Christopher Pike was a standout character for the 2009 Star Trek film and returned for 2013’s Star Trek Into Darkness. In an exclusive interview Greenwood talks about how he got his start in Trek, and what he thinks about a possible future for Pike and more.
