A ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Digital Release Special Features Clip

Our good friends at Paramount reached out to us yesterday and wanted to touch base with us about the Star Trek Into Darkness digital release, which came out early on Tuesday at your favorite digital retailers.  They have a couple items up their sleeves that they thought our readers might be very interested in.  Are they out of their Vulcan minds?!  We have Star Trek readers here?  LOL.  Just kidding.   So for all of you who can’t wait to read our upcoming Star Trek Into Darkness Blu-ray review, hopefully the below will whet your appetite for a few.  Bona appetit!

  • Here is a clip from the iTunes Extras.  There’s a blurb about iTunes Extras below, but it’s a basically a special features clip (and a pretty good one to boot with Spock in the volcano) http://youtu.be/gcSsn5f-w48

  • Paramount launched the Defeat Khan website today.  The site uses some of the most advanced 3D technology to allow you to instantly create your  own personalized Star Trek avatar with just an upload of your photo.  You are then tasked to join the Starfleet Academy to train with a variety of simulations testing your IQ, Vision, Focus, Memory, and Speed as you move up the ranks to help defeat Khan.  By connecting to Facebook, you can also compete with your friends to see who has the more superior genetics.

  • There are multiple exclusive concept art images debuting today from Xbox SmartGlass.  The images have a code that users can enter on the Defeat Khan website for a chance to win a trip to see Star Trek Into Darkness live orchestrated in London by Michael Giacchino. Users can find out where these images are from the website.
