New Indy DVDs

03.03.2008

"Doctah Jone! Doctah Jone! Why you no like new format?" Had Short Round not been abandoned by Indiana during some undisclosed previous adventure, he'd no doubt ask that question about this new announcement.

In one of the more disappointing and egregious examples of cash-in synergy, Paramount is re-issuing the INDIANA JONES trilogy on DVD this May 13, the week before our tech-relic hero returns in INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL. But if you're one of the many who enjoys the benefits of hi-definition viewing, you're outta luck -- the part-time professor is only coming to standard DVD, but no Blu-ray in sight (which would be in accord with our recent report that the new movie will forgo digital theaters).

On May 13th, Paramount Home Entertainment will release all new Special Editions of the classic action-adventures INDIANA JONES on DVD! If you can't wait to see Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, then these all new special edition DVDs will be the perfect way to get you ready to head into theaters! The greatest action-adventure hero of all time comes swinging into your home (with each film in the series available individually for the very first time on DVD!) with all new exclusive bonus features on Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple of Doom, and Last Crusade! See these classics as you've never seen them before and delve deeper than ever into the making of these milestone films! It's every fan's dream as these new special editions arrive in stores just days before Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hits theaters! Grab your hat and your whip and get ready as ALL NEW SPECIAL EDITIONS of INDIANA JONES come to DVD on May 13, 2008!

Visit the OFFICIAL SITE to get specifics on the new special features. Throw me the idol, I'll throw you my old box set.

Extra Tidbit: Oh, how I wished the fourth JONES involved a grown-up Short Round and his kung fu death squad seeking revenge on Jones for leaving him in the hands of Nazi experimental scientists (or something). Like that wouldn't be cooler than Shia LaBeouf as Indy's bastard son Mutt?

OH MY GOD PEOPLE

who gives a shit? i'm a little bummed that they're not giving these a blu-ray release, but you know they'll do that eventually once the 4th is out of theaters.

but in the meantime, why is this a rip-off? why is this a scam? why does this make george lucas greedy and why do you lose respect for spielberg?

you don't have to buy this shit. you don't have to double up. if you already own them on dvd, show some fucking self control like an adult and keep your money. these are for people

you don't have to buy this shit. you don't have to double up. if you already own them on dvd, show some fucking self control like an adult and keep your money. these are for people who haven't bought them yet, or people who maybe only want to own one of the movies.

it's called marketing. it's called good business. don't complain that the studios are simply trying to make money as usual. that's what they do.

if you own it, don't buy it

I don't see why people are pissed that they're re-releasing the DVDs before the fourth installment. I just see it as a way for them to help promote the new movie more than anything.
For those who haven't gotten them yet, this can just remind them "Hey! Get this to refresh on the next movie!"
If you already own it, then you just don't buy it. I don't know what the big deal is when people say its fucking the fans over or anything.
If they were altered editions, with no original theatrical

If they were altered editions, with no original theatrical rendition available at all, then yes, I can see people being mad.

I don't care about blu ray, but....

Fuck this, trying to cash in on another DVD release when the box set already out there is awesome as it is. I don't think this is Spielberg's doing, this has George Lucas' greedy chubby fingers all over it.

Wow, and I respected Speilberg.

I know he may not have anything to do with this, but come on, this is the biggest scam in history, and the team behind the movies doesn't seem to care.

So yeah, the trilogy was released in 2004 was it? I remember the trailer saying, "And we've dug deep into the archives to give you an exclusive 4th disc!" I was excited, I was pumped.

Now they are rereleasing them without Blu-Ray! Whatever. Just wait until Skull is released. I garuntee, they are going to release ONLY a box set of all

I love Indiana Jones, but this is just sad. There is no way I will pay for this crap until they are re-released AGAIN on Blu-Ray with the release of the 4th around Christmas.

God I hate Hollywood sometimes.
