It's not just discs either. I get the same kind of wild and varying shipping for books from them now too.I don't think Amazon has any idea of shipping timelines these days. I placed an order last weekend where they first said it would be delivered on June 15, then I got an "early shipping" email that said it would be here June 14, so of course it arrived today, June 10.
If I remember correctly, LFL owns the characters and Paramount owns the movies so Paramount can't do anything without LFL/Disney and vice versa. Although there'd be no reason for either company to block the other from releasing the movies... unless one of them decides they don't like money anymore.I'm rather surprised they didn't end up owning the Indy movies when they acquired Lucasfilm.
Pretty much. Disney bought the marketing and distribution rights from Paramount in 2013, so they have full control over future films. Paramount retains distribution rights to the first four films, and receives some sort of financial compensation for any future movies that are made (including the currently filming movie).If I remember correctly, LFL owns the characters and Paramount owns the movies so Paramount can't do anything without LFL/Disney and vice versa.

Lucasfilm holds the copyright, but Paramount has some kind of profit participation and distribution rights in perpetuity. It's the main reason they had a tough time making a deal for the film - Lucas wanted to own the film but have the studio finance it.If I remember correctly, LFL owns the characters and Paramount owns the movies so Paramount can't do anything without LFL/Disney and vice versa...
In my opinion the DVD is a more faithful representation of the movie than the Blu-Ray. haven't seen the 4K but believe it to be an improvement over the Blu-ray. Think I'll stick with the DVD simply because it feels more congruent to the way I saw it in the theater and on VHS..The most surprising thing about this comparison is how good the DVD still looks...
Unless they redid it, Kingdom is actually an upscale.
If it is, it appears lovely.
For its UHD release, the original camera negative for live action plates (sans VFX) was rescanned in 4K resolution and the 2K VFX shots were upsampled to create a new 4K Digital Intermediate, with new grading for high dynamic range (again both HDR10 and Dolby Vision options are included). All of this work was approved by the director. The good news is, footage scanned from the OCN mostly looks fantastic, exhibiting a nice uptick in detail and refinement, though the dearth of photochemical grain in some scenes suggests that DNR has been applied to even out the different sources. (It’s more than I would prefer, but I wouldn’t quite call it excessive.) Of course, the bad news is that the visual effects for this film were all done via computer graphics rather than practical models and optical-printing. And with the lower resolution and upsampling, they just don’t look as good.
Hi all, Now I love all the Indiana Jones 4k Movie Collection but there is one problem I have with the audio been called Dolby Atmos, the sound is a static track on this 4k Movie Collection. It's not a true Dolby Atmos active track here is what I mean in this video here is the link
I see you just do not have all the info that they, the sound designers can make a active mix with the audio stems eg; movies that was mixed in dts mix, 2012 movie English: DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 , Top Gun. English: Dolby TrueHD 5.1 are now in Active Dolby Atmos and there plenty more to select from. I did not say the sound track was bad, but dont call it dolby atmos when all they did was use height speakers to expand the sound stage.It is unrealistic to expect a 40 year old movie to have an active Dolby ATMOS mix when Dolby ATMOS didn't exist in 1982. I, for one, would NOT want Paramount to artificially add NEW sound effects just so the mix would be active instead of static.
The reviewer states that the various ATMOS channels are active during the action scenes and the static mix does give the film's sound a greater depth and improved feeling of being in the middle of the action.
So, I fail to understand your gripe. The extra ATMOS channels are being used and it creates a positive effect.
Some photos from the castleAren't they filming at a castle? If so, what studio has a castle in their logo?
