RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK HEADING TO IMAX FOR RE-RELEASE

 

HEY BASTARDS.

 

Jones and his whip are getting more action than the local dominatrix these days. Sounds like Indy will be chasing the Ark all the way to the Imax screen this September in anticipation of the INDIANA JONES: THE COMPLETE ADVENTURES Blu-ray release later that month (Sept. 18th to be exact). As the films were being worked on the for the Blu-ray conversion, someone had the idea of blowing up RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK to 70mm. The film will be released Friday, September 7th to September 13th. More details and theater listings to come. And just a quick warning; if I here that this thing has been retro-fitted for 3D, I am putting the hurt on someone… just sayin’. I just saw this in a 35mm print back in July and I can tell you that it was one of the more special screenings I have ever been a part of. The crowd showed this movie an incredible amount of respect and appreciation, applause at the beginning, end, and many parts in between. If your theater is on the list, if it’s anywhere close to you, do what you can to get there. You won’t regret it.

From the press release:
In June of 1981 director Steven Spielberg and executive producer George Lucas introduced the world to Indiana Jones when the unforgettable Raiders of the Lost Ark debuted in theaters. Exploding to instant acclaim, the film has now been carefully restored, alongside remastered versions of the archaeologist’s other thrilling adventures—Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Prepare for excitement, adventure and snakes—why did it have to be snakes?—all with pristine picture and sound when INDIANA JONES: The Complete Adventures debuts on Blu-ray September 18, 2012 from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
 


 
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The sound design was similarly preserved using Burtt’s original master mix, which had been archived and unused since 1981.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.
 

 
The installments in the franchise have won a combined seven Academy Awards®. Relive every heart-pounding thrill like never before as all four films arrive together, for the first time presented in 1080p high definition with English 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio accompanied by a collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and new bonus features.
 

 

SEE YOU ON FORTY DEUCE,
