Indiana Jones Complete Collection Coming to Blu-ray in Fall 2012

Although some fans now regret asking for the entire Star Wars saga on Blu-ray due to the latest round of George Lucas tinkering, Lucasfilm did come through with a pretty awesome box set featuring a plethora of extras. Now this year they will be turning their attention to the Indiana Jones films, and with any luck it will contain the same level of quality without all the silly changes. In a press release this week, they announced that The Complete Indiana Jones Blu-ray Collection will be hitting stores in fall of 2012, and it 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.”

There are no official images or specs to geek out over as of yet, but I think it’s safe to say that this is exciting news. After the jump, check out a short trailer for the Blu-ray release, along with Jamie Benning’s fan-made documentary Raiding The Lost Ark: A Filmumentary (which I should point out is completely unofficial and will not be included in the set). Will you be picking up the Indy Complete Collection on Blu-ray, or will you wait for individual releases just so you can avoid owning Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?

    I’m in for all four. Crystal Skull is the 2008 equivalent of Waterwold for the amount of undue hate it garners. A decent flick with a few disappointing concessions to modern filmmaking.

    Day one baby.

  • Snorfle

    Same thing they did with the Jurassic Park blurays. I guess it was to be expected.

  • rob

    fucking finally!

  • rjdelight

    I guess we all know now when the Indy premium special is coming.

  • Will they be available seperately? I only really want Raiders, which is Spielberg’s masterpiece. Last Crusade being throwaway if fun, and Temple of Doom is unwatchable, shrill, woman-hating shit. No living organism ever wants to think about Crystal Skull ever again. So.

    The whip and gun have been digitally replaced with walkie talkies.

    A few concessions? I’m sorry, but the majority of the film was a concession to, not modern filmmaking, the madness of Lucas and Spielberg. It’s not modern filmmaking, but sheer stupidity and carelessness for art that drives a director to the use of CGI, or of inputting of aliens in the world of Indiana Jones.

    For those (idiots) who are thinking about buying all of them: better wait for the last Indiana Jones film.

  • Scuvs

    Aww yeah! Indy baby! Yes I know Crystal skull was bad but if they’re not sold seperately I would definitely bite the bullet and buy it anyway. It’s not the abomination some will have you believe. Don’t get me wrong, it was a tad shitty but not absolutely unwatchable.

    @LaMenthe

    Blah, blah, blah. Get over yourself.

    I think the alien angle is smart, though I agree an over-reliance on CGI is one of the film’s bigger problems.

  • Owozifa

    I guess I’m another idiot, because I quite enjoy all the Indiana Jones films. The killer CG ants were unfortunate, but overall all the movies give me warm fuzzy feelings. I just love Indiana Jones and the style of film he embodies.

    Hopefully this drops in price a little, though.

  • Goon

    I’m on Team Colin and endorse any argument he carries on on behalf of Skull. In for all 4.

  • As long as there’s no additions or changes to the originals, I’ll pop on this.

  • Colin

    There’s a first! With Goon and my powers combined, we’ll be unstoppable!
