"Supervised by director Steven Spielberg and renowned sound designer Ben Burtt, Raiders of the Lost Ark has been meticulously restored with careful attention to preserving the original look, sound and feel of the iconic film. The original negative was first scanned at 4K and then examined frame-by-frame so that any damage could be repaired. The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt's original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981. New stereo surrounds were created using the original music tracks and original effects recorded in stereo but used previously only in mono. In addition, the sub bass was redone entirely up to modern specifications and care was taken to improve dialogue and correct small technical flaws to create the most complete and highest quality version of the sound possible while retaining the director's vision. The result is an impeccable digital restoration that celebrates the film and its place in cinematic history."

Maybe Satipo tosses the whip first?

So the full list of Blu-ray bonus features hit the net today, and the trailers are indeed on the individual movie discs.

Bottom line, America?  Unless you just have to have that trailer for Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, the 2003 Indy box set is safe to get rid of.

You know the only change I'd ever like to see in Raiders would be for them to remove that wall of fire when Belloq's head explodes.

it wasn't there originally and they only added it in to avoid an R rating.  It'd be better without it.

I'm not so sure about that now, after seeing this today:



The flames did help to cover up how goofy that thing looked.

And there are some things happening actually related to this topic:

For the first time ever, the first three films in the Indiana Jones saga will be available individually in high definition when they arrive on Digital HD November 19, 2013 and on Blu-ray with a digital copy available through iTunes December 17, 2013


The individual Blu-Rays are the same as the ones in the box set, except they have digital copies available through iTunes.

Individual Blus around $17, box set around $43 currently on Amazon

I still get annoyed by the re-titling of Raiders.  Grr.
