According to a press release from Paramount Home Entertainment, the 4K Ultra HD version of The Movie – The Director’s Edition was restored by producer David C. Fein and restorer Mike Matessino, who both worked with Wise on the first Director’s Edition. In particular, “the film was prepared for presentation in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range (HDR) and a new powerful and immersive Dolby Atmos soundtrack.” Fein and Matessino also teamed up with returning VFX supervisor Daren Dochterman and others technicians who worked on the initial Director’s Edition and spent half a year recreating the effects and even adding a few elements of surprise. Paramount Home Entertainment also announced that upcoming Ultra HD disc and digital releases of The film will be accompanied by “extensive” new and old bonus content.

Many younger star trek Fans who may have come through on board Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Lower Decksor Star Trek: Child Prodigymay not be aware of the meaning of The film. Paramount originally planned to produce a new television series that would reunite the cast of The original series but switched to a feature film after the success of war of stars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind, both of which were released in 1977. Several directors were considered before Robert Wise was awarded the contract. The late great filmmaker directed such classics as West Side Story, The Sound of Music, The Day the Earth Stand Still, The Hauntingand The Andromeda tribeand he edits Citizen Kanewidely regarded as one of the best films – if not the best film – of all time.

The film in its original form was a mixed bag. It was beautiful to watch, with some notable visually stunning sequences and a reasonably solid sci-fi story. Also, it was great to see William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy and the old gang back together. On the other hand, the story repeated itself (like a TOS episode), there wasn’t much action or character development, and the very expensive film felt long and slow at two hours and 23 minutes. Still, it did well enough at the box office to warrant a sequel, and this follow-up, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, cost much less and delighted fans and critics alike. the Conditions The crew continued to make several more films, and the franchise grew with them from there Star Trek: The Next Generation pave the way Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprisethe movies of JJ Abrams, Discovery, Picard, lower decksand miraclenot to mention endless video games, toys, theme park rides and other related products and projects.
