*** Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures streets on September 18th. ***
In September, Paramount Home Media Distribution will bring Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures to Blu-ray. Director Steven Spielberg's beloved adventure series stars Harrison Ford (Blade Runner) as the title character, an archaeologist and college professor whose perpetual search for rare and mysterious treasures puts him in great danger.
The set will include all four of Indy's adventures, including:
Raiders of the Lost Ark
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
The collection will mark the Blu-ray debut of the first three pictures; only Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is now available on the format.
Paramount's four-disc package offers each film in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio with 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks. - Steven Spielberg and his sound designer Ben Burtt supervised the A/V restoration work.
Paramount's press release describes the work done on Raiders of the Lost Ark, noting that the feature "has been meticulously restored 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 The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt's original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981.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."
While Paramount has yet to provide a complete list of supplementary details, the studio has indicated in the Indiana Jones press release that the collection would contain a "collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes, and new bonus features."
