Paramount joins UHD Blu-ray movement, Star Trek is first release

05 Apr 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Paramount will join the UHD Blu-ray movement alongside other major studios, the company has announced. The first two titles will be ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’. Both will be released in 4K, HDR and Dolby Atmos. A boxset will cost $47.99.

Star Trek movies on UHD Blu-ray

20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, Warner Bros, Lionsgate and other studios have already declared their support for the new UHD Blu-ray format. Paramount will join them in June 2016.

On June 14, Paramount will release Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise. Both titles have been “digitally remastered with new 4K UHD transfers” and in HDR (high dynamic range). Both will be available with Dolby Atmos audio.

Star Trek UHD Blu-ray

Each title will be available as a three-disc UHD/Blu-ray/Digital HD combo pack for a cool $47.99. That is incredible steep considering that you can buy the HD Blu-ray bundle for less than $15. Paramount hopes that early adopters are prepared to cough up - and maybe they are right - but it appears to be just another try at raising prices. It will certainly not convince the casual audience to jump on the UHD Blu-ray bandwagon.

Star Trek will feature over three hours of behind-the-scenes content. Star Trek Into Darkness will include the IMAX version of the film along with more than two hours of special features.
