    Gawd I wish I lived in the US of A sometimes - I'd absolutely love to see this! I wonder if they'll be an announcement about Indy 5? There' s still so much they could explore with the franchise - I'd love to see one set in England. An Arthurian tale with a haunted castle and some mysterious mist shrouded lakes and so on... Hopefully this interview will be available online at some point?

    As it is going to be digitally projected, it seems like something they could rerelease without problem. The local movie tavern occationally shows Raiders. As for living in the U.S., it is almost as easy to go to England as LA.

    Hope Spielberg gets plenty of Indy5 questions as they can still make 1 last adventure. I loved KOTCS so more of the same is fine by me...... Sept 2012 is quite obviously when the Indy Blurays will leave the hangar 51 warehouse & Lucasfilm will hopefully do them justice extras wise they have a lot of archive material on Indy.

    So Spielberg and Harrisson want to do another one, and are waiting on George... again. How long does it take to find a McGuffin?!!! I'd love to see a film set in England (OK being slightly selfish here as I live in the UK haha!) with some old haunted castles, mist shrouded lakes, perils, thrills and spills! Let's hope if there is a new one the film takes itself seriously - like Raiders - which is to say no more slapstick. Humour - yes! That's a hallmark of the series, of course. But it went too far the other way in Last Crusade and epecially Crystal Skull. Less of Indiana Jones and his Family have an adventure too... If this is the last film, it would be great to see Indy adventuring on his own again - like the beginning of Raiders... Seeing him really challaneged and having to solve riddles/clues/traps using his cunning and experience. Bring the GRIT back to Indy George/Steven - perlease!!!

    Well I'm in no rush for a fifth movie as I thought the forth one was just awful. Raiders is a true classic. I don't like the second one, but the third is a lot of fun. Just great looking Blu-rays please.

    Oh man - George could definitely learn a thing or 3 from his example. At least one of the beards is doing the right thing! Gawd bless you Mr Spielberg, Sir!!! :D Now please make a KICK-ASS Raiders-toned mysterious/scary/supernatural Indy 5, to truly send the character out on a filmic high! Fingers crossed...

    I would like another Indy. Indy 4 was no Raiders, but it was ok.

    Good, no CGI shot in Raiders. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull received a pretty solid standalone release, and I don't really see the need to include it in the set. They pretty much covered everything in the bonus materials. I hope their focus will be on the original trilogy next year. What about the teaser trailer for Temple of Doom? It wasn't included in the 2003 Best Buy Exclusive. EDIT: Sorry Oscar didn't see your post before I submitted mine.

    Indiana Jones will be out on Blu-ray in either September or October next year. No sooner and no later.

    Q4 does make the most sense from a business perspective. For Spielberg though, maybe he doesn't want ET, Jaws, and Indy to hit Blu all at the same time and he knows Indy is the furthest along...

    I'd love to be wrong but I say that there's no chance of that or the wire on the buoy in Jaws being returned.
