Indiana Jones Special Edition DVD's

According to the American Film Institute, he's the greatest action-adventure hero of all time -- and his unforgettable exploits can be relished by fans old and new as never before when all three Indiana Jones movies debut as individual Special Edition DVDs and in an all-new box set on May 13.

Released by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Entertainment, Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Special Edition DVDs boast all-new, exclusive bonus features that dig deeper into the making of these cinematic milestones than ever before. All three were originally restored and remastered in 2003. Created with fans of all ages in mind, the bonus features provide never-before-seen explorations of the making of these classic movies and showcase the characters, action and extraordinary visual effects that have made the movies indelible cinematic treasures.

Each film makes its DVD debut just days before the highly anticipated return of the "Man in the Hat" in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

"An entire generation of movie lovers will get to see these classic films in a digital format that makes them even more amazing than when they were first in theaters," said Howard Roffman, Vice President of Lucasfilm Ltd. "These new, individual DVDs are a fantastic way to introduce young audiences to the unforgettable, action-packed adventures of the most daring archaeologist in the world."

Directed by Steven Spielberg from stories by executive producer George Lucas, the three Indiana Jones movies earned six Academy Awards® and nearly $1.2 billion worldwide. From the groundbreaking excitement of Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) to the sinister mysteries of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) and the father-son adventure of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), the heroic Dr. Jones continues to delight audiences with his thrilling on-screen exploits.

Previously available only in a trilogy box set, the three films of The Adventures of Indiana Jones were newly restored and remastered to deliver an exceptional viewing experience to existing enthusiasts and a whole new generation of fans. All-new bonus content delves into the making of the legendary series as the filmmakers and cast look back and a new world of adventure opens up with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and others offering hints about what to expect in the newest installment.

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark Special Edition DVD is presented in widescreen enhanced for 16:9 TVs with Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround, French 2.0 Surround and Spanish 2.0 Surround and English, French and Spanish subtitles. The disc includes the following special features:

Spielberg doesn't do audio commentary - I think he believes it distracts from the viewing pleasure, and he wants people in the moment of watching. He makes up for it with extensive interviews in the special features section; his storytelling skills are great. Lucas doesn't mind doing commentary, but since he's not the director he'd respect Spielberg's wishes.

There really doesn't seem to be alot of difference between these and the original DVD release (which was fantastic by the way), but who knows, might be worth a spin.

And I do agree there roughrider, even if you are noting his storytelling in the film medium (which I don't think you are, but best make sure), the guy has a great way of telling tales in an interview. Honestly, if I was to have a pick of any director I would want to have an in depth conversation with, Spielberg would be right near the top, if not the top.

You'd be listening a lot. Spielberg strikes me more as a talker than a listener. Hehehe

Thats bullshit from Speilberg.

His argument would hold up if there wasn't the option to NOT listen to the commentary track. What a lousy excuse.

Between WOTW and hiring Michael Bay for TFs lately, now no DTS or commentary on this and a bullshit excuse given, Im really worrying about Speilberg's cred. I think it died after Schindlers list in the mid-early nineties.

And Queeq is right about the extras too. Sounds like a last DVDcash-gathering-exercise to help pay for Indy IV before he charges for the blue ray editions.

Hell no. Spielberg is one of the few directors that just what he wants. He's not the only one not to do commentary. David Lynch for instance or the Coen Brothers.
Personally I can understand it: a filmmaker makes a film to say what he wants, why elobarote on it.

I listened to Ridley Scott's commentary on Blade Runner: Final Cut. It was boring and hardly talked about the scenes, just about how they came up with stuff. But that was already in the docs. So... I understand. Not everyone is that interesting to listen to.

Fair enough, but then he shouldn't be surprised when I (and I suspect, many others) dont re-buy what is already had then.

DTS and commentary are two big incentives in the "I want to re-sell you the same shit you already got" stakes.

Oh I agree... I had the same felling when I saw what they are trying to sell us with these 'new' DVD's.

And there's no DTS in Lucasfilm films... Lucas has THX... So he don't want no DTS.

Ah.

Shame. Cause my "Alien" (and many others) which is already THX sounds twice as good in DTS in terms of size of sound, resolution of sound and the dynamic range and EQ.

Damn their oilly hides.
