Remastered Raiders of the Lost Ark will keep playing in theaters for another week!

09.14.2012

You are a filthy liar if you say you don't love RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. Quite possibly the best adventure movie of all time, RAIDERS has just completed a limited one week run in IMAX theaters. In fact, Paramount was so pleased with the release ($2.4 million gross in 267 IMAX theaters), that they are expanding the release to over 300 Digital, non-IMAX screens.

The theatrical run is to commemorate the Blu-ray release of the INDIANA JONES on September 18th. I was too young to see RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK during its original run but I am definitely going to catch it in this last week! According to Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore "The re-mastering efforts by Steven, George and their team were incredible and the movie’s hugely successful run in Imax last week was a sure sign that audiences were excited to see the film again on the big screen. We are thrilled that audiences will have that chance again as part of this extended theatrical run."

All four films have been remastered by Spielberg and sound designer Ben Burtt and the Blu-ray will include seven hours of bonus material, including a brand new two-part documentary titled On Set With Raiders of the Lost Ark -- From Jungle to Desert and From Ad. It also features nearly an hour of rarely seen footage from the set of the film and archival interviews with Spielberg, Lucas and Ford.

Count me excited!

Saw it!

I was 10 when Raiders came out and didn't have a clue about its existence. An older friend of mine started talking about this movie where guys' faces were melting off, and naturally I became intrigued. A couple years later, my family rented a VHS player from Publix (yes, you read that right), and Raiders was one of the first titles I rented. Needless to say, it blew me away and transformed the way I saw movies. So when I saw the trailer for this on the big screen, I turned to my 17-year old

Sure enough, I went to see it last Monday night with him, and it was great! Like being a kid all over again. That opening sequence is still perfect in my book! Go see it if you have the chance!

Who really cares if it's IMAX or not. It's Raiders of the Lost Ark...back on the big screen. Go and out and see it. I'm hip to this news most definitely, as life got in the way last week and I was not able to make it out to theaters. But you bet your ass I'll be in a seat tomorrow.

Incorrect.

It's now on at MOST 266 IMAX theaters, because the theater I saw it in is no longer playing it because of RESIDENT EVIL 3D IMAX. So yeah...nice thought that it'll be around, except...it's not.

Being too young to have seen this movie when it came out (hell, I was born the same year Last Crusade came out), it was really cool to get to see it on the big screen. Too bad it was digital--the picture was pretty fuzzy. Still, definitely worth the fifteen bucks. If they expand to a non-IMAX screen in my location, I may even go see it again!

I thought about seeing it until I realized that the theaters near me we showing it in Digital (Fake) IMAX. The AMC Loews Lincoln Center IMAX is still playing The Dark Knight Rises I guess because they were contractually obligated.

Cool! Still not playing at the 3 nearest IMAXs to me! What's what? You mean I would have to drive an hour and a half just to see this in IMAX? Well, get in the car honey, time for a road trip!

But seriously, what the fuck?

uhh... how about

expanding the release to the THOUSANDS OF OTHER IMAX SCREENS NOT EVEN SHOWING RAIDERS!

Seriously up here in Canada, the birthplace of IMAX, it's barely playing in any of the IMAX's and only playing in maybe 2 or 3 of the major cities in the entire country. What in the hell?!

There are TWO different IMAX theatres in my specific city, yet neither one of them is showing Raiders... awesome that they're expanding it, but they better be expanding it to more than just 'non-IMAX' screens...
