“Star Trek Into Darkness” is arriving on Blu-ray and DVD in September, with a digital release in August, Paramount announced Thursday.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and more reprised their roles for the sequel to 2009′s “Star Trek” reboot. “Into Darkness” pitted Capt. James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock against the upper echelons of Starfleet itself, as well as against Benedict Cumberbatch’s Khan.

“‘Star Trek’ works in subtle ways,” Cumberbatch told Hero Complex earlier this year. “There’re such condensed, incredibly beautifully drawn characters that are very now even though it’s a future-scape with loads of rich imaginative detail for fans to obsess over. The actual core content of the story is universal in time and place.”

Directed by J.J. Abrams, the movie prospered at the box office, earning more than $444 million worldwide after opening to mostly positive reviews in May. The Times’ Betsy Sharkey raved in her review that the film, “bursting at the seams with enemies, wears its politics, its mettle, its moxie and its heart on its ginormous 3-D sleeve.”

The home video releases include a Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD combo pack ($49.99), Blu-ray/DVD combo pack ($39.99) and single DVD ($29.99).

The Blu-ray boasts an array of special features, all produced by Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions, including making-of featurettes about the red planet seen in the film’s opening, the attack on Starfleet headquarters, the new look for the Klingons and their home world Kronos, and the fight scene between Spock and Khan, among other bonus features.

The home video release is set for Sept. 10 for Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand. The digital release comes three weeks earlier, on Aug. 20.

    Will any of the 'cutting room' edits feature the Spock/Spock Prime discussion (detailed, I hope) regarding 'Khan Noonian Singh'?
