In this months Empire magazine in the UK, they're talking October 2003 for a release of the Indiana Jones DVD'(s). This comes with the latest news that paramount is to release their first DTS dvd this year, and judging by Spielbergs strong support of DTS, its likely to be the Indy movies. However, apparently there are arguments over how best to release them. Lucas and Spielberg want them all to be released seperately during the lead up to Indy 4, but Paramount are concerned over how well the 2nd and 3rd movies would sell, and would rather just box set them for christmas. No doubt there will be a mega box set after Indy 4 though.

Question is, do you think people would buy Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade? While I recognise that Raiders is the best film, I love all of them. TOD is just fun, right from the great musical opening of Anything Goes.

Id like a box set, but just because Id buy them all anyway, that way I get more packaging. But if I had to pick, I say release them seperatley.

Temple of Doom is the one I grew up with and the one I like best. Raiders was one I'd watch every now and again, and I only saw Last Crusade once. I'd like the boxed set, but if they were sold separately I'd only buy the first two.

I'll buy them all any way they put them out.  I'm just glad to see it's closer to being a reality.

You are correct that they are Harrison Ford movies, but unfortunately:

At long last for Jack Ryan fans, Paramount Home Entertainment will finally release The Jack Ryan Special Edition DVD Collection. Featuring newly remastered editions of The Hunt for Red October, Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, plus the previously-released special edition of The Sum of All Fears, the set comes loaded with new extras produced exclusively for the collection. And in another first for Paramount, all the titles in the set except for the repackaged Fears will mark the studio's first-ever DTS-encoded releases. Each title will also be available separately. The set has no suggested retail price, and street date is May 6th.

Now why can't they use digital technology for good things. Like replacing Alex Baldwin in Hunt for Red October with Harrison Ford. And replace Ben Affleck with Matt Damon.

Those are remastered sets I'd buy.
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, silhouetted by the sea, circled by the circus sands, with all memory and fate driven deep beneath the waves, let me forget about today until tomorrow.

Indiana Jones Trilogy on DVD November 4!

The Hollywood Reporter says the "Indiana Jones" trilogy has finally been announced for release November 4 as "The Adventures of Indiana Jones -- The Complete DVD Movie Collection," a box set that will include a fourth disc specifically dedicated to bonus materials.

Elements slated for the special fourth disc include a documentary crafted by Laurent Bouzereau. "The fourth disc explores every facet of how the films were made -- from stunts to visual effects to the music and sound," said Jim Ward, vp of marketing at Lucasfilm. "We take viewers around the world to explore the history behind the 'Indiana Jones' legends."

Ward said that there will be no director's commentary tracks on the three discs containing the films: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Available in both Widescreen and Full Screen versions via Paramount Home Entertainment, the collection has no suggested retail price but is expected to be available for about $49.95 in the United States.

Specs should include the films in anamorphic widescreen with 5.1 audio in Dolby Digital and (probably) DTS formats. "We're not just putting out a vanilla version (of the film on DVD)," Lucasfilm's Jim Ward says. Look for new interviews with Harrison Ford, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg and more. Best of all, no alterations have been made to the films themselves, other than digital clean-up for the DVD release. More specific information and final cover art should be available later.

There was an article interviewing John Williams on CNN, and he talked about Indy 5 an how Spielberg wants to do it in Israel about the Mossad. I think I am going to vomit. Spielberg is gonna fuck Indy up.

"[Spielberg's] talking about doing a fourth Indiana Jones film and a wonderfully dramatic piece about the Mossad and some of its history called 'Vengeance'," says Williams.

"Indiana Jones [IV] will be a challenge because we'll now have to recast the film with Harrison Ford as a mature Indiana Jones, if you like, and a more mature composer will be doing the score!" he says, chuckling. "Until I see a script or see the film it will be hard for me to tell how much of the early material will apply -- if any."

Not that he's going to give up the familiar fanfare. "I would have thought Indiana Jones is now a pretty well-known theme and at least will be referred to as some type of memory trace if nothing else."

You are welcome, Duck. And thanks for the kind words.
