Just in time to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark - Paramount Home Video has officially announced the June 8th release date of the 4-film 4-Disc deluxe box set release of Indiana Jones 4-Movie Collection 4K UHD Blu-ray. Each film will be presented in Dolby Vision HDR (and standard HDR10), with new Dolby Atmos audio mixes to match! Now - some of the pictures of the packaging make it look like each disc gets its own SteelBook package - but nothing in the press release actually indicates "SteelBook." If that's a retailer exclusive we'll keep you posted as we learn more.
So save the bucks and plan for June 8th!
The full press release from Paramount is below
Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark with All Four Indiana Jones Movie Adventures on 4K Ultra HD for the First Time
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. Each film is presented on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc with original theatrical trailers and access to digital copies.
