Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

This year marks the 35th anniversary of the release of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, undoubtedly the best Star Trek movie ever (and one of my favorite movies of all time)! For the occasion, the film will get a limited theatrical release this September, courtesy of Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures.

The digitally remastered Director’s Cut of the film will get a two-day-only theatrical run nationwide — Sunday, September 10 and Wednesday, September 13, at 2pm and 7pm local time each day. A new in-depth interview with star William Shatner (who reprised his iconic role as James T. Kirk in the film) will be played before each showing.

Star Trek: The Original Motion Picture Collection Blu-ray Releases

Since there isn’t much home video news to report this week, I’ve decided to make this edition of The Digital Wire a special one. In light of the recent deaths of Leonard Nimoy and producer Harve Bennett this week’s Wire will be devoted to a list of the five best films in the Star Trek franchise starring the legendary Original Series cast available to own on Blu-ray.

Each title provides a link to its corresponding Amazon page so you can order a copy of your very own if you choose (you can also get the 6-film Star Trek: Original Motion Picture Collection, which comes with a bonus disc). Also, although this is a special edition of the Digital Wire, I’ve still provided a list of this week’s major releases on Blu-ray and DVD, complete with their own purchase links. We would greatly appreciate it if you use those links to order because a small percentage of each order helps keep this website running at max power.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Yesterday we reported that Benedict Cumberbatch‘s role in Star Trek Into Darkness had been revealed as John Harrison by Paramount Pictures via the release of a new official still, a revelation that revealed next to nothing about his actual character. Thus the fan speculation continued: he’s really playing Khan….or Gary Mitchell….or Spock’s brother Sybok….and so on and and so on….

Early reports from screenings of the 9-minute preview of the film that will begin playing this weekend before select IMAX 3D screening of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (full list of IMAX theaters here) have claimed that a selection of Michael Giacchino‘s score for Into Darkness quotes from music composed by James Horner for Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, particularly the theme for the movie’s titular villain (played in the 1982 movie and the original series episode “Space Seed” by the late Ricardo Montalban). Today comes the news, courtesy of Silas Lesnick at Coming Soon, that the new character being played by Alice Eve has been confirmed, and it is a name fans of the Star Trek franchise will be very familiar with.

Leprekhhhaaaaaan!!!

Kevin David Anderson, author of Night Of The Living Trekkies, sent us a fun greeting for St. Patrick’s Day which mashes up the evil Leprechaun from the Leprechaun horror movies, with Star Trek‘s beloved Captain James T. Kirk in “Leprekhhhaaaaaan!!!”

If you don’t get this reference, I implore you to immediately watch one of the greatest movies ever, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Happy St. Patty’s Day, everyone!

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan is my second favorite movie of all time (after The Empire Strikes Back), so this video caught my attention right away.

YouTube user Mawgan has recreated Star Trek II in just 60 seconds using paper card puppets, and the results are spectacular.

Watch the video here below.

This is my entry for the Empire Done in 60 Seconds 2011 competition… I used a combination of card puppets that I designed, cut out and stuck together (which were shot on green screen) and then drew computer backgrounds/objects which were placed behind/in front with effects added (simple ones!).

Trek ComicThe good folks over at Motion Pictures Comics are at it again with another parody and this time its Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. I must say that this is one of the funniest comic strips I have ever read and I love how they use the environment as one joke after another.

The series took a swipe at the Trek universe back in May 2009 with their parody of the latest Star Trek film [Read Geek Humor: ‘Star Trek’ Parody Comic Strip].

The team over at Motion Pictures Comics is one of a kind and I love their work. Every Star Trek fan should check this out and let us know what you think. It jokes about the movie, but pays tribute to it at the same time.
