A “Star Trek: The Original 4-Movie Collection“ is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on September 21st via Paramount Home Entertainment and CBS Home Entertainment. The 4K set will include the first four films in the original “Star Trek” film franchise remastered in 4K. Those of course are “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” (1979), “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” (1982), “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” (1984), and “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” (1986). It should certainly be noted that the second film (“The Wrath of Khan”) will come with both the theatrical cut and the director’s cut.
Tech specs for each film on 4K UHD Blu-ray include a 2160p video presentation with HDR10 and Dolby Vision forms of high dynamic range. It is known that this set will be spanning across an 8-disc set and that it will come in the form of a “combo pack” meaning that it will come with each film’s Blu-ray Disc counterpart (pictured below) as well as a digital copy of each. UPDATE #1: Audio will be presented in Dolby TrueHD 7.1 lossless surround sound for each film, and the first film will get a Dolby 2.0 isolated score sound mix.
These four films all starred a primary cast (crew) of William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, George Takei, Walter Koenig, and Nichelle Nichols. The films were directed by Robert Wise, Nicholas Meyer, and Leonard Nimoy. Nimoy actually directed the last two.
You can now find the 4K UHD Blu-ray set available for preorder over at Amazon. UPDATE #2: Also, individually released remastered versions of each of the four films on Blu-ray Disc will be released on the same date, September 21st. I’ve included each of the four of those below, before the official announcement, after the break. You can now find “Star Trek: The Motion Picture” remastered, “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” (Director’s Cut) remastered, “Star Trek III: The Search for Spock” remastered, and “Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home” remastered on Blu-ray Disc individually available for preorder over at Amazon. [NOTE: Amazon Commissions Earned]. Each release will include bonus materials and a digital copy of the film.
And, again, because this set is covering four films the bonus materials run rather lengthy and include lots of previously released extras. So, you can find all that listed below in the official announcement from StarTrek’s website as well as directly via Paramount.
The 1986 animated film “The Transformers: The Movie“ is officially coming to 4K UHD Blu-ray on August 3rd, via Shout! Factory, in a 35th Anniversary Limited Edition SteelBook.

The movie has received a new restoration from a new 4K transfer. Tech specs for the 4K release include a 2160p video presentation in the 1.85:1 aspect ratio with HDR10 and Dolby Vision as well as DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround and 2.0 Stereo lossless sound mixes. The release will also include a Blu-ray of the film in HD, presented in the 1.33:1 full-frame aspect ratio and DTS-HD MA 5.1 and 2.0 Stereo sound mixes.
NOTE: Despite the 4K UHD Blu-ray format being mostly region-free, this release could perhaps be region A locked, it appears. However, it has been stated that there will be both a standard and a SteelBook 4K UHD Blu-ray releases available in both the US and UK this September. Specifically, on September 28th you’ll see those 4K physical versions released to further celebrate the 35th anniversary.
