Nostalgic Trailer for Blu-Ray 'Indiana Jones' Box Set Coming in Fall

Indiana Jones Blu-Ray Set

"Always knew someday you'd come walking back through my door." He's back, and in high def, finally. After years of waiting, they're making an Indiana Jones "Complete Collection" Blu-Ray set, which does include Crystal Skull (unfortunately). Steven Spielberg himself has commented on Raiders' visual quality at least, saying via SlashFilm: "This is the best I think it's ever looked… we haven't removed anything, we haven't added CGI, there's no digital enhancements." It feels like we've been waiting forever for the original trilogy on Blu-Ray. I grew up with Indiana Jones, it's one of my personal favorite series - finally in high def!

Here's the official trailer for The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-Ray Collection, from Paramount:

Watching this reminds me how just much I love Indiana Jones. The man with the hat is back – and looking better than ever! The world's favorite globe-trotting archaeologist is, at long last, embarking on his greatest adventure – when The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-Ray Collection arrives on Blu-Ray from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media. The Complete Indiana Jones Collection will be excavated in the Fall of 2012 and will include all four of Indy's thrilling adventures, using the highest possible high def picture and audio – along with a "best of" collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and a few new surprises as well.

The set includes all four films: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Temple of Doom (1984), The Last Crusade (1989) and yes, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) as well. You can pre-order it for $74.99 on Amazon.

It keeps saying "all four movies" which confuses me because there are only three movies...only three Indiana Jones movies. There...there certainly wasn't a fourth one that raped my childhood and still haunts my dreams. (hysterical sobbing)

i personally just go with what my reflection in the mirror told me was a parallel world......

Finally!!! My #1 wanted blu-ray set. Cant wait.  

BigBadRon on Feb 29, 2012


there is no fourth.

I hope George Lucas had added hilarious new CGI characters.

Vole on Feb 29, 2012


What's up with all the different sound qualities in the trailer? Am I supposed to think it's "unaltered sound" or "original sound" or something? I might be wrong, but all the alterations Spielberg made in the past have now been removed(small errors like camera reflection on the glass cage Indy is in, ect) and I guess this is a release without the alterations? So...not added new CGI, but also removed what was tampered with. I prefer my movies untouched, untampered, but thats the picture/story, its OK to release the Blu-Rays in 7.1 super-duper-surround-sound 🙂

You know the scene where a bad guy has a big sword and he elaborately swishes it around menacingly before Indy simply shoots him... I bet the sword guy now shoots first.

Vole on Feb 29, 2012


According to Lucas, Sword Guy ALWAYS Shot first but it was the fans that created the whole hype around Indy shooting first

 rofl - well played sir.

Somebody send me the fourth disc!

Robert L. Tuva on Feb 29, 2012


Awesome! Now, how about giving us a blu-ray set of the original Star Wars trilogy. None of the added bullshit, just the original versions with some sleek audio/visual. Can anyone tell me if in fact they are out there for purchase, or is it Special Editions only?

grimjob on Feb 29, 2012


 just stick with the VHS...Lucas claims the original SW films are lost/destroyed.

Xerxexx on Feb 29, 2012


supposedly the film used for them was Kodaks attempt to test new apparently started degrading so the original reels are supposed to have been destroyed by the time the 90s rolled around and thus starts the constant re-releases......

Jericho on Feb 29, 2012


No they aren't lost. Fox spent $20 million dollars in 1995 to restore the original negatives. The original elements are in the Lucasfilm archives. The other story is just more George Lucas bullshit.

Max Renn on Feb 29, 2012


yeah i found it floating around google

Jericho on Mar 1, 2012


Meh. It's all about Uncharted now when it comes to this genre. 

RpinS on Feb 29, 2012


YYYEEESSSS!!! These guys think of everything! Not only are they giving us awesome Blu-ray versions of all three Indiana Jones films - they're including a free drink coaster as well! How nice of them...

Pete the Geek on Feb 29, 2012

Max Renn on Mar 1, 2012

Héctor Pérez Tovar on Feb 29, 2012


All I can say is... ABOUT TIME.

Carl on Feb 29, 2012


 "This is the best I think it's ever looked... we haven't removed anything, we haven't added CGI, there's no digital enhancements." LOL! I think Spielberg is scared shitless of a Star Wars-like backlash coming after him if he does anything to alter these films. Good on ya, mate.

Dangerous Don Danger on Feb 29, 2012


Yeah, like the cliff scene which was digitally "enhanced"? Or was that just the HD broadcast version? I don't mind the other tweaks over the years: the poles removed from the boulder, the cobra reflection erased, the pole under the truck deleted. But don't replace good FX work.

Max Renn on Feb 29, 2012


I knew God answered prayer, but He was really quick! I was just praying last night that IJ would be released on Bluray. I think I'm going to pray tonight that Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is a good movie.

Quanah on Feb 29, 2012


Good, I need a new drink coaster (Kingdom of the Crystal Skull).

Max Renn on Feb 29, 2012


We all can enjoy now our favorite trilogy in Hi-Def!! (yes, TRILOGY) And dads can finally show their 10 and 11 year old kids the three movies (yes THREE) with a superb image and sound, so the world can have a whole new generation of Indy fans!! This is our new post-modern mythology man...

Leinergroove on Mar 1, 2012


I think that Spielberg's wised up to Lucas after the debacle of the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and listened to the fans.  Shame he didn't look at CGI removal of those damn monkeys though....

Steven on Mar 1, 2012


If Spielberg treats E.T. on Blu-ray with the same respect as this brilliant TRILOGY of movies, he'll be my director hero all over again.

Max Renn on Mar 1, 2012


Can't wait...and Skulls wasn't that bad, still a good popcorn movie.

VI0LAT0R on Mar 3, 2012


It's like Fringe. Only on the other side did Indy have a terrible fourth outing.
