A Star Trek 4K bonanza arrives –Sept. 6


PARAMOUNT HOME Entertainment will release for the first time on September 6, the 4K Ultra HD version of Robert Wise’s much-desired “Star Trek: The Motion Picture - The Director’s Cut,” plus “Star Trek V: The Final Frontier” and “Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country” featuring the theatrical and Director’s Cut.

In 2001, director Robert Wise revisited the film to refine the edit and enhance the visual effects. His updated vision was released on originally released on DVD and embraced by fans but has never been available in HD or 4K Ultra HD until now. Meticulously assembled and restored by producer David C. Fein with post-production supervisor Mike Matessino, both of whom originally collaborated with Wise. Fein and Matessino assembled a team of visual effects experts, led by returning visual effects supervisor Daren R. Dochterman, and utilized the extensive resources in the Paramount Archives to recreate the effects not just in HD, but in Ultra HD. After more than six months of painstaking work, the updated movie looks and sounds better than ever while staying true to Wise’s original intention.

“The Director’s Edition on 4K Ultra HD delivers an experience that is far more intimate, engaging, and powerful thanks to the hard work of everyone involved. Producer David C. Fein
