    Any validity in Amazon.com's "Coming soon" announcements? If you click on more details a "Coming Soon, pre-order today" announcement comes up. They even have an AISN number. "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is one of the titles listed, does this mean it is coming soon?

    Not usually. It's just a sneaky ploy to get your order early for big titles.
    Either that or it's a valuable service to inform you when your favourite movie is eventually released. [​IMG]
    As for Indy, I suppose it's possible that Paramount might sneak it out by year's end, but I don't recall reading any reliable rumours (read: Digital Bits Rumor Mill) about that. My money's on a late summer 2003 release, but time will tell. Until then I have my LD boxset. [​IMG]

    My guess is Indy on DVD in 2004 since that will be much closer to Indy 4 and I'm sure Paramount and Lucas will use the DVDs to help promte and market, thus, revive, Indiana Jones.
