[UPDATED WITH OFFICIAL BLU-RAY TRAILER BELOW]
Paramount and Lucasfilm have declared Blu-ray on the Jones boys! Today studio and creator unveiled their press release finally confirming that the Complete INDIANA JONES Blu-ray Collection will jump, punch and whip its way into your home theater this Fall. FilmEdge first got hints of Indy’s adventure on Blu-ray from the series director himself, Steven Spielberg, at an exclusive LA Times Hero Complex screening of RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK last September. While Spielberg couldn’t confirm the release date, speculation concluded that an autumn/year-end release in 2012 made the most sense.
The Complete INDIANA JONES Blu-ray Collection will include all four feature films of the hit franchise — RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, INDIANA JONES AND THE TEMPLE OF DOOM, INDIANA JONES AND THE LAST CRUSADE and INDIANA JONES AT THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL — plus a collection of documentaries and “a few new surprises.”
We can only hope that Lucasfilm, Paramount and Spielberg are truly going to give Indy the golden debut on Blu-ray he deserves and pack this box set with new, worth-the-long-wait bonus materials that will have fans snatching copies off the shelves. FilmEdge will update this story soon with box art, disc features and more as soon as they’re available.
