Deluxe 4K Ultra HD Set Arrives June 8, 2021


HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (March 15, 2021) – Relive the unforgettable exploits of world-renowned, globetrotting hero Indiana Jones in spectacular 4K Ultra HD when the INDIANA JONES 4-MOVIE COLLECTION arrives in a new 4K Ultra HD set June 8, 2021 from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Entertainment.

The cinematic classic that started it all—Raiders of the Lost Ark—celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, having first introduced audiences to the man with the hat on June 12, 1981. Forty years later, the legendary hero continues to captivate new generations of fans.

Now, for the first time ever, all four films are available together in 4K Ultra HD with Dolby Vision® and HDR-10 for ultra-vivid picture quality and state-of-the-art Dolby Atmos® audio*. Each film has been meticulously remastered from 4K scans of the original negatives with extensive visual effects work done to ensure the most pristine and highest quality image. All picture work was approved by director Steven Spielberg.

In addition, all four films were remixed at Skywalker Sound under the supervision of legendary sound designer Ben Burtt to create the Dolby Atmos® soundtracks. All original sound elements were used to achieve the fully immersive Dolby Atmos® mixes while staying true to each film’s original creative intent.

The INDIANA JONES 4-MOVIE COLLECTION includes a collectible booklet with behind-the-scenes images from all four films.

So from the looks of it, this is a 4K-only release without new Blu-rays.

That means I can go ahead and get the existing Blu-ray box set and be done with it.

Great news to have these coming for those fans who can use 4K though.

Yep, same thing for me. There's just so many movies that in my case going 4K and having to get a new 4K TV and a 4K player its just not something I want to do financially at the moment

I have a Panasonic 820 4K player and the current BR box set is good enough for me, I don't upgrade many BRs to 4K mostly DVD from my collection when a 4K is released.

If the films have been remastered, they may offer new blu-ray versions from the new masters some time down the road. That's what's happening with Mission Impossible and Tomb Raider.

Yeah. But since we don't know that is happening, I don't feel the need to keep waiting into infinity for something that might or might not happen. I said in the other thread about this that I would wait to see what happened with this set before making a purchase decision, and now I have the answer.

Interesting to see what the price is. I love Raiders (who doesn’t?), liked Crusade, didn’t like Temple, and haven’t seen Skull, so it will be a tough decision.

Paramount did eventually break out the Blu-rays for individual sale after they had been in the box set first. If you're patient, that could happen again here at some point. Or you might be able to do a streaming purchase individually if you're into that.

I have no clue about streaming, unfortunately.

I think what’s going to happen with these is similar to what’s likely to happen with the 4 film UHD set of the Alien films- we’ll be forced to buy them all if we want them on physical media.

If the digital copies redeem as 4K titles, then it's likely the 4K digital streams will be the new transfers.

But I'm buying this box set, for sure. No way I'm passing up the chance to own this epic collection in 4K. I feel reasonably confident the new 4K transfers will outshine previous HD (standard Blu-ray) discs. Particularly for Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Day one, absolutely!! Just show me where to preorder.

This has me excited, that they've actually put new work into the films rather than just a cursory upgrade running it through some software program.

When you feel you want to go ahead and get a 4K TV, take a look at the TCL line. They are very affordable and have a very good picture. I bought a 55 inch and an open-box Sony 4K blu-ray player and spent well under $1000.

The first Alien film has already been released on 4K UHD. The remaining three films have not.

Temple and Crusade were a bit underpowered sound wise on the previous blu so I'll be interested to hear the new mixes.
