In the US, Walmart is listing a Blu-ray set with three small ships from the film:The USS Enterprise, the USS Franklin and one of Krall’s swarm ships.

In the United Kingdom, a steel book version of the film is set to be released by Amazon.  From Zavvi.com in the UK, a revised version of the compendum that was released for the first two “Kelvin Universe” films will be sold. The box’s artwork here is revamped to feature all three of the contemporary Trek films.

Startrek.com has announced a release date of December 31st for the film, which seems odd as this will miss the holiday season altogether. One wonders if this is just a placeholder date for the home release, with Paramount waiting for the film to run its course in theaters before announcing its home release.

Star Trek Beyond celebrates the 50th anniversary of the venerable sci-fi franchise and stars Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, John Cho, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban and the late Anton Yelchin. The film is still playing at a theater near you!
