Star Trek fans rejoice and mark September 10th on your calendar (or in your smart phone ap or whatever). Paramount Home Entertainment has set the 10th for the release of STAR TREK: INTO DARKNESS. There will be a 2D release, a 3D release and Starfleet Phaser Limited Edition Gift Set (Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy) release. Guess which is aimed at Trekkies?

Synopsis: In the wake of a shocking act of terror from within their own organization, the crew of The Enterprise is called back home to Earth. In defiance of regulations and with a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads his crew on a manhunt to capture an unstoppable force of destruction and bring those responsible to justice. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.
