  Indiana Jones - DVD

2nd Official DVD Press Release from Lucasfilm


HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (Aug. 8, 2003)

After years of waiting, Indiana Jones fans everywhere are preparing for the long-awaited Oct. 21 premiere in the U.S. and Canada of all three of the rogue archaeologist’s classic adventures in the ultimate home-entertainment format.

From the groundbreaking excitement of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) to the sinister mysteries of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) and the father-son adventures of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989), the chills, spills and heroics of The Man in the Hat have never looked or sounded better than they do on THE ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES – THE COMPLETE DVD MOVIE COLLECTION.

The image of each film has been carefully restored by Lowry Digital Images and the films have been digitally remastered by THX. Each of the four films offers a new Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. This special boxed set, which goes on sale Oct. 21 for approximately $49.95 in the U.S. (there is no suggested retail price, and international prices will vary), will be available in either widescreen or full-screen format.

The Oct. 21 release is two weeks earlier than originally announced, said Meagan

Burrows, President of Paramount Home Entertainment. “Ever since we announced
Indiana Jones in May, the response and support from retailers and fans has been fantastic. This is going to be a very crowded and competitive fourth quarter for the home-entertainment industry, so being in stores earlier is a distinct advantage – especially with such an amazing title that consumers and retailers are both anxious to get. Moving to Oct. 21 is a win-win situation that gives Indy the focus and attention he deserves.”

Furthering the excitement is a bonus fourth disc of brand-new special features and

newly produced documentaries created by Paramount Pictures and Lucasfilm Ltd. especially for the DVD debut of THE ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES – THE COMPLETE DVD MOVIE COLLECTION. More than three hours of bonus material includes:

Indiana Jones: Making The Trilogy – Documentarians raided the Lucasfilm archives for an unprecedented behind-the-scenes look at movie-making history. More than two dozen new interviews were conducted with the talented cast and crew of the Indiana Jones trilogy – some of whom were interviewed for the first time since the films were originally released. Making the Trilogy is a completely unique tour through the rough-and-tumble world of the films’ creation. Complete with never-before-seen footage, outtakes, screen tests, production drawings and photographs direct from the Lucasfilm archives, it’s the most detailed exploration of these classic films ever produced.

The Light and Magic of Indiana Jones – The visual effects wizards from Industrial Light and Magic bring new insight into how they created the unique world of Indiana Jones. Their groundbreaking techniques in visual and mechanical effects came in an era before computer-generated effects existed, offering unique challenges and spectacular results. ILM technicians explain how miniatures, matte paintings, morphing and more made Indy’s spectacular quests and supernatural adventures into unforgettable film experiences.

Taking an in-depth adventure in sound, The Sound of Indiana Jones joins Academy Award®-winning sound designer Ben Burtt as he reveals the crucial role that sound effects and editing played in the Indiana Jones films, while also providing an aural history behind some of the most talked-about scenes.

The Stunts Of Indiana Jones goes behind the scenes to witness the intense coordination required by the entire production team to make certain a death-defying scene looks convincing on film. This documentary reveals how the Indy films paid homage to the past and were pivotal to the future of heart-stopping, perilous movie stunts.

Venture on a musical journey with John Williams as he reminisces about his collaboration with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas and The Music of Indiana Jones. Viewers will learn how one of the most iconic movie themes of all-time, The Raiders March, was conceived and gain insight into how the music uniquely compliments the theme and mood of each adventure.

Original theatrical teasers and trailers for the Indiana Jones movies, along with a trailer for the Indiana Jones and The Emperor’s Tomb video game from LucasArts.

Exclusive DVD-ROM access to exclusive Indiana Jones content, available through a special DVD-ROM web site. An additional link to the Indianajones.com web site (the official site for Indiana Jones fans) will offer daily features and updates on the upcoming Indiana Jones 4.

Including the films, THE ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES – THE COMPLETE DVD MOVIE COLLECTION offers more than 10 hours of entertainment. Each film has been digitally restored and remastered. Disc 1 features Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. On Disc 2 is Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, while Disc 3 offers Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Disc 4, which holds the bonus material, sports brand-new artwork by renowned movie-poster designer Drew Struzan.

The three Indiana Jones films, which will be available only as a collection, also feature Dolby Digital English 5.1 Surround. All three films are closed-captioned and subtitled in English, French and Spanish in the U.S. (Sound and subtitling specifications vary internationally by territory.)

Paramount and Lucasfilm also scoured their archives to find just the right material to add to the DVD. "We knew we had to deliver the goods Indy fans wanted with a quality beyond anything they expected," said Jim Ward, Vice President of Marketing for Lucasfilm. "In addition to the films themselves, of course, this collection explores every facet of how the films were made - from stunts to visual effects to the music and sound. We take viewers around the world to explore the history behind the Indiana Jones legends. It's been great to work with Steven and George on a project that means so much to them, and having them involved on the DVD collection really makes it special."
