J.J. Abrams’ latest Star Trek sequel took things in a much darker direction, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t have a ton of fun behind the scenes.
With Into Darkness now on DVD and Blu-ray, the studio has put together a compendium release with both the original film and sequel in a nifty super package. Among the special features? Some never-before-seen footage from Into Darkness, along with the gag reel featured in the clip below.
Not surprisingly, a cast filled with folks like Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, Zoe Saldana, John Cho and Karl Urban apparently had a good time on set. Plus, Chris Pine is apparently much more charismatic behind the scenes. Who knew? Oh, and seeing Benedict Cumberbatch turn his accent on and off is pretty impressive.
Here’s the synopsis for the compendium release:
Director J.J. Abrams’ global sensations Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness set a course for the ultimate home entertainment package in STAR TREK: THE COMPENDIUM, arriving September 9, 2014 from Paramount Home Media Distribution. The set includes four Blu-ray Discs with both films in sparkling high definition and the IMAX version of Star Trek Into Darkness, Digital HD copies of both films, plus previously released bonus material, including the Star Trek Into Darkness director’s commentary. STAR TREK: THE COMPENDIUM also boasts never-before-released footage from Star Trek Into Darkness including a gag reel and new behind-the-scenes featurettes. This comprehensive four-disc set will be offered for the suggested retail price of $39.99.
