The first name in adventure is finally on Blu-Ray! Comingsoon reports that Steven Spielberg and George Lucas' quadrilogy of Indiana Jones films--Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull--is coming to Blu-Ray in 2012! This news follows Spielberg's confirmation that Blu-Ray editions of Jaws and E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial are in the works. Crystal Skull has previously been available on Blu-ray, but this marks the first time that Raiders, Temple, and Crusade have appeared in the format.
Though no specifications or cover-art have been released, here is the announcement from Paramount:
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" 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.
Will you be buying the set or waiting to see if the original trilogy of films will be sold separately on Blu-ray a la Star Wars?
