Star Trek Into Darkness beams down on Sept. 10 on Blu-Ray, Aug. 20 digitally

| July 26, 2013 | 0 Comments

As expected, Paramount announced that Star Trek Into Darkness will be arriving on DVD and Blu-Ray this fall, with a physical release date of Sept. 10, 2013 on Blu-Ray and DVD. What was unexpected was the announcement of the digital release three weeks earlier on Aug. 20, 2013. While it’s not uncommon for the digital release date to be earlier than the physical release date, the difference is generally a week; this time it’s three weeks. That’s a substantial difference for those that prefer Blu-Ray’s superior audio and video over the heavily compressed, but still adequate HD digital download.

BestBuy will allow you to pre-order the physical release, and allow you to watch the movie digitally on their CinemaNow system. You can check out their pre-order page here. However, if you pre-order the movie from Amazon, you don’t get that perk because Amazon doesn’t charge you until the item is shipped.

Apart from the standard Blu-Ray, DVD, Blu-Ray 3D combos, Amazon has a special exclusive – A Blu-Ray 3D/2D/DVD/Digital combo pack with a phaser replica by QMX for $79.99 (click here). Not a bad deal if you’re a collector.
