‘Indiana Jones’ Films Due on Blu-ray in Fall 201229 Feb, 2012 By: John Latchem
Paramount Home Media Distribution has confirmed what most industry watchers had suspected: The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-ray Collection is coming in fall 2012.
The set will include all four films. Though 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was released already as a standalone Blu-ray, this will be the first time 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade will be available for the high-def format.
According to Paramount, the set will include a “best of” collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and a few new surprises.
Paramount hasn’t confirmed a release date, box art or pricing, so the announcement likely was just to whet our anticipation a bit. The timing makes sense, though, since Lucasfilm released its Star Wars: The Complete Saga Blu-ray set in fall 2011.
With this being the 100th anniversary year of the studio, there is speculation that Paramount will release more of its catalog classics on Blu-ray, such as James Cameron's Titanic, which is being re-released in theaters in 3D in April to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ocean liner’s sinking.
