FilmEdge follows up on our earlier article to remind Comic Con attendees this week that Paramount and Lucasfilm are offering them a bonus gift if they pre-order INDIANA JONES: THE COMPLETE ADVENTURES Blu-ray box set at the con in San Diego!
While supplies last, fans who pre-order the highly anticipated four-film INDY Blu-ray box will receive a bonus $25 Sideshow Collectibles gift card.
Comic Con attendees also get a photo-op at Lucasfilm’s recreation of the infamous Well of Souls scene from RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK… including real snakes in the sand pit!
INDIANA JONES: THE COMPLETE ADVENTURES Blu-ray box set whips onto store shelves September 18th. This massive 5-disc set includes all four INDY movies on Blu-ray, with RAIDERS, TEMPLE OF DOOM and THE LAST CRUSADE making their long-awaited HD debuts. Across the five discs, fans will enjoy 7 hours of bonus features including all-new and archival documentaries and featurettes.
Director Steven Spielberg and sound designer Ben Burtt have given RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK a complete digital restoration with careful attention to preserving the original look, sound and feel of the iconic film. The original negative was first scanned at 4K and then examined frame-by-frame so that any damage could be repaired.
The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt’s original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981. New stereo surrounds were created using the original music tracks and original effects recorded in stereo but used previously only in mono. In addition, the sub bass was redone entirely up to modern specifications and care was taken to improve dialogue and correct small technical flaws to create the most complete and highest quality version of the sound possible while retaining the director’s vision. The result is an impeccable digital restoration that celebrates the film and its place in cinematic history.
