Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Our favorite archaeologist got a full restoration for his Blu-ray debut. As announced in February, the Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures set includes all four of the movies in the franchise, Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).

The fourth film was released on Blu-ray in 2008, but for all the others, the Complete Adventures collection is their high-definition debut.

Raiders of the Lost Ark was meticulously restored for the set, supervised by director Steven Spielberg (War Horse) and sound designers Ben Burtt. They reportedly paid attention to preserving the original look and sound of the iconic film from the original negative.
