The long-awaited and long-rumored release of the Indiana Jones movies in high definition is officially coming this fall.
The package will contain all four films and what seems will largely be recycled extras. Here's Paramount's official blurb:
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.
"A few new surprises" makes it sound as though the volume of extras not already released will be minimal, but from what has been reported about the Raiders restoration, which has been screened to a privileged few, the movies themselves are gonna look like a million bucks, and that's the main thing.
Update by ???: The big question is, will the CGI jeep from the recent HDTV broadcasts be included? Will we have another jeepgate?
