The new edition of the second Star Trek feature film on DVD is now available to pre-order.
'Star Trek II - The Wrath of Khan - Director's Edition' will hit shelves on August 6th. It will feature an all-new 116-minute cut of the movie by director Nicholas Meyer.
In addition to the new cut, the two disk DVD set will have over four hours of extra features - enough trivia, nitpicks, and information to satisfy the most hard-core Star Trek fans.
Disk one will contain the movie, with commentaries from Meyer and Michael Okuda. The second disk will house the extras. It will contain interviews from 1982 with the film's stars, alongside new interviews from William Shatner (James T. Kirk), Leonard Nimoy (Spock), Ricardo Montalban (Khan Noonien Singh), Nicholas Meyer and more. Other extras include 'Designing Khan' - a comparison of the first two Trek movies, interviews with Trek novelists, and visual effects features.
