Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on BluRay and DVD October 14

Just a couple weeks ago we talked about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was coming to DVD on November 11th but it appears that was not entirely accurate. Official release says October 14th – WITH BluRay version as well.

Obsessed with Film says:

The two-disc Special Edition DVD and Blu-ray presentations feature hours of new content that opens up the world of Indiana Jones as never before through in-depth footage of Steven Spielberg and his cast and crew at work. From Shia LaBeouf’s training to become a master swordsman to Harrison Ford’s reunion with his fedora, whip…and Karen Allen as Marion Ravenwood, viewers will play witness to the magic of cinema’s greatest action-adventure hero’s triumphant return to the big screen, as well as the of the extraordinary work of legendary artists who brought Indy’s latest thrilling adventure to life.In addition, all four INDIANA JONES films will be showcased in the quintessential Indiana Jones collection entitled The Complete Adventure Collection, which will include the first three films plus the two-disc Special Edition DVD of the latest installment.

Well the original report was partial, so I am not surprised by the official release date. Also I presumed that this “just in time for Christmas” release will be a ploy to double dip for when the blu ray release came out, but I was only half right.

Now it seems there will be a delay for the Blu-ray two-disc Special Edition in a collection to get their bag of silver.

I think they should call it the “The Complete Adventure Until we make Another Collection”

  1. It would be nice if they would sell a bigger case that you can add Indy 4 to since I have the box set from 2003.

  2. But studios are no longer producing on HD. I think the last of the new titles that were coming out might be petering off now. If not, then very soon.

    Toshiba doesn’t even make the players anymore.

    Even picking them up cheap is denying the inevitable. If your player ever craps out its not like you can run out and buy another and HDs wont play in a BluRay.

    Might as well collect Laser Disks.

  3. Actually, many stores still sell HD DVD’s, just no new ones, obviously, and you can get entire collections of them on Ebay for 2 bucks or less.

    But yeah, both the HMV and the CDPlus here sells HD DVD’s still, and I think Jumbo Video might as well.

  4. Dragonslayer… they ARE releasing the Bluray at the same time as the DVD.

    Its the collector set that will be waiting because the first three are not available on Bluray yet.

  5. Yeah, that’s why I probably won’t ever switch. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing, and that’s what BluRay is, IMO. Sure, the picture is really fucking clear, but that’s also the problem. I find it takes me out of the movie when on DVD, a person looks normal, but on BluRay, their cheeks are so incredibly pinkish red, it’s distracting.

  6. bluray may have better quality, but personally for me, it’s more of a price thing, so i’m going to stick with hi-def. i’m going to wait a little longer and wait for the prices to come down on the player and the bluray. one of the things that really bothers me about bluray is how clear the picture is, so much that you can tell an actor is wearing makeup, i can’t stand that.

  7. I am making the jump to Blu this year. My only pet peeve is that despite my DVD collection remaining playable in a BluRay player, the boxes are not the right size.

    I like my DVD collection, now it will have these newer blue midget boxes in them. I already got my collection all uniform by garage saling off all my VHS crap.

    Dammit.

  8. Ahh, ok. I thought you meant the actual BluRay movie itself.

    Anyway, I think I’m also going with the 1-Disc. I like the cover art more and it fits in better with the rest of the series’ covers.

  9. They are not releasing a collection on BluRay until later.

    The 2disc Blu and DVD as well as the collected DVD set all come out in October. But the blu Collection is delayed.

  10. “it seems there will be a delay for the Blu-ray two-disc Special Edition”

    It says right there in that article that it is coming out the same day as the DVD.
