|Not Indiana Jones! (Almost though)|
Amazing news! Indiana Jones is coming to Blu-Ray this year.
Here's the press release from Paramount
The man with the hat is back – and looking better than ever! The world’s favourite globe-trotting archaeologist is, at long last, embarking on his greatest adventure – when “The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-ray Collection” comes to Blu-ray Disc from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution. The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-ray Collection will be excavated in the fall of 2012 and will include all four of Indy’s thrilling adventures, using the highest possible high definition picture and audio presentation – along with a “best of” collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and a few new surprises.
There's a good chance that the only enhancements the movies will get is the picture and sound. Last year, at an anniversary screening of Raiders, Steven Spielberg said,
This is the best I think it’s ever looked, because in preparation for the eventual release on blu-ray we had to correct the print again and get the original negative out of the salt mines, and then we had to do the separations, and basically the files, which are just amazing, with all the technology of today, without changing any of the movie materially, we haven’t removed anything, we haven’t added CGI, there’s no digital enhancements! It’s purely the movie you some of you may remember from 1981.
I bet any money (not true!) that they will do a special collector's edition like they did with Jurassic Park and include a limited edition statue of Indiana Jones being chased by the boulder or the famous scene where he is replacing the statue with a bag of sand. I know whats going on my Christmas list.
