The best of the Star Trek movie franchise is coming back to Blu-ray and it promises to look and sound better than ever before.
In celebration of Star Trek‘s 50th anniversary, this summer Paramount Home Media will re-release Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan in a new Blu-ray Edition that will include both the theatrical version and the slightly longer Director’s Cut available for the first time in high-definition.
Paramount may not have had a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that hasn’t stopped some people from pushing their films. For instance, during the Dredd panel, Karl Urban had promised that he would release some special footage from Star Trek 2 some time during the weekend.
Lo and behold, the guy wasn’t lying, but he wasn’t exactly telling us the truth. Check out the fun tease below.
In what should be exciting news for movie fans everywhere, we are learning that J.J. Abrams has shot some of Star Trek 2 in IMAX as well.
However, we shouldn’t take the news as a complete surprise considering images from the set show an IMAX camera is present. The film will still be converted into 3D, as well. We still don’t know how much was shot using the IMAX format or how much of what was shot will make it into the theatrical cut, but knowing that Star Trek will be presented in a true IMAX format is comforting. I’m sure everyone prefers true IMAX over its horrible digitally converted one.
Hot on the heels of the first set photos from the Los Angeles location shoot for Star Trek 2 that were released over the weekend (you can check them out here and here) comes a new behind-the-scenes video from the shoot.
It seems that as soon as filming hits the ground for Doctor Who that the gossip floodgates open for the series. I’ve heard some doozies in my time, but this one (if real) would actually be quite interesting. Express.co.uk and Radio Times are reporting of rumors that Benedict Cumberbatch from Sherlock (and the forthcoming Star Trek 2 and The Hobbit) could have landed the role as The Master for the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who.
Because Cumberbatch is celebrated for his Holmes role in “that other” Steven Moffat series, his name has popped up in the past as potentially appearing on Doctor Who.
