Paramount's Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures, starring Harrison Ford, directed by Steven Spielberg and produced by George Lucas is now available for pre-order in both regular (£44.99) and
Limited Edition (£64.99) Blu-ray disc box sets from Amazon UK for the 8th of October. The 4-movie sets (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)) include a 5th Bonus features disc with a collection of documentaries, interviews, featurettes and other materials.
The Limited Collector's Set Edition will be exclusively available online and will offer soon to be announced exclusive memorabilia. These, and other specifications will be posted as soon as they are made known.
Pre-ordered from Amazon UK easily at least $40 dollars cheaper than buying it in Canada, plus no tax!
Really looking forward to this, who cares if it has the ratings logos on the front, the discs will be the same as
The US set had better have separate Elite cases for each release so I can throw the box and fourth film straight in the garbage where they belong...no force on this Earth will cause me to voluntarily add the fourth "film" to my collection. It's one thing to make me pay for a film that I don't want (that no fan of the three Indiana Jones films could possibly appreciate, on any level) to get the three that I (and everyone else) do, but if they make me keep it (by way of digibook, etc.), I'll *really* be displeased.
get1080pnot720p - Speak for yourself,you really dont know if everyone truly hated the film as much as you did,and I for one,when i buy the set will not throw any film away,even if I hate it,I just wont watch it again.( but it still stays with the set)
@get1080... dude, too harsh. Other than the monkey swinging, Crystal Skulls was a decent addition to the holy trilogy. I liked the alien thing, thought it fit fine into the Indy universe. I thought Harrison Ford was great and it looks awesome on blu, what more'd you want.
Just a heads up for international buyers - Temple of Doom was famously cut in the UK for the pulling-the-heart-out-of-the-chest scene, so you might want to hold out for the US version after all... details of the cuts here - http://www.melonfarmers.co.uk/hitsi.htm (scroll down to Indiana Jones) - though if they decide to release uncut for the first time in the UK it would be awesome, I doubt they'll do this given the popularity of the series as "family films" here.
@ planosuperman - Don't be so selfish. Why should the country of origin always be the one to get it first?
Anyway, ordered the collector's set to see what comes with it and hope it's actually worth £64.99. I'm confident though it'll be a great set and can't wait to see Indy in HD, the wait has been too long.
get1080p speak for yourself I personally enjoyed Kingdom of the crystal skulls, and I am a huge fan of the original indy trilogy. KOCS does a great job at styling itself after the B movies of the 1950s in the same manner that the first trilogy does a great job of stylizing itself after the Serials of the 1930s.
Plano you do realize that we are getting the indy set on sept 18th right, same day as we get the bond set from mgm.
so not sure where you get the idea that the UK is getting it first when the uk release date is October 8th

Just like the Alien movies, I respect each Indiana Jones movie for what it is. They are all good and enjoyable in their own way. Yes, Raiders is one of the best movies ever made, however I cannot wait to own all of them on Blu-ray.
What an amazing autumn this is going to be!!! Pre-ordered the £45 box set, a bit dubious at to what the 'exclusive memorabilia' will be and will it be worth the extra £20? Will wait to hear what it is first and may change my order. I just hope they put on the great Raiders documentary that accompanied the old VHS trilogy boxset years ago as an extra.

Same here. All four movies are in varying quality, but they're all entertaining. I never bought KOTCS because I knew this would happen. Just looking forward to an official announcement of what specs to look forward to. I have no doubt this will be another box set like Star Wars, Alien, Jurassic Park and Back To The Future that they are going to load it to the brim.
I just love how every time I try to add some honest advice on this forum it is always people like you who seemed
determined to add a sarcastic comment. I am not claiming I had insider information as to when individual releases
would be made available to the public, it just seems very likely that will happen. It happened with the Alien Films,
Batman, heck even Lucas gave the public the option to buy the individual trilogies. The only problem you face is having to wait longer than you want to. As far as indy 4, you have two options, either regift the purchase, and give it to someone else, or make your money back, and sell it on Ebay. But please enough of the Whining!
Where do you get off telling me or anyone else what to like!?!?!? How dare you! Even if Crystal Skull wasn't the strongest in the series, it is OUR CHOICE and not yours as to whether or not to accept it. I would hope a lot of other people share my thoughts. However, I don't assume that they do. Nor do I demand it.
They're about 3-4 years late in the "me caring about what comes out on blu-ray anymore" department. I'll gladly just wait until this thing is $20 or so, you know it'll happen either from UK or by Black Friday. Blu-rays tank in price so quickly now it's a massive ripoff to pay first-week "sale" prices.
I imagine they will be available individually, just like The Godfather. Because, just like the Godfather, they know some people won't buy the whole set and selling them individually is another opportunity to make some money. Then I and the rest of the #2/#4 haters can get only the movies they want.
Personally I'm looking forward to this set! I like the first 3 (1 and 3 better than 2 but I have always enjoyed all 3) and have actually never seen the 4th one (was waiting for the complete set) so it looks to be a great weekend after this (or the US) set arrives.
Already have the boxset of original films on DVD, the films themselves have dated pretty badly, i won't be wasting my money on upgrading to the Blu-Ray's, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is one of the worst films i have ever seen it was yet another cynical cash-in.
Really do not see the need for people to get upset that it is released in the UK first *roll eyes*
@AlanUK - How can historical films date? The style and direction of the films aren't much different from what is done today and hold up much more than a lot of films from the same era do, due to them not set in the time they were made.
Just my opinion, but perhaps you need to go back and rewatch them, especially when you've got a few films in your collection which could be considered very dated.;)
@ Jezza - Maybe so, but as i see them, this new set does not warrant spending another £45 on something i have already got, i have only updated my ten favorite films from DVD to Blu-Ray, i do not think they have done enough to justify the pricing either, for example i have sold my James Bond collection & Star Trek collection on DVD & got the Blu-Ray boxsets they offer much better value than Indy.
I did go to watch Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at the cinema because of how much i liked the original films & to say that i had seen a Indy film at the cinema, but it was rubbish, if this set had just the first three films then maybe, i will wait until it comes in for about £10 then i might buy it (and thrown the Crystal Skull disc in the bin).
Can I save myself ten or twelve quid and just have a set with the first three films in it? The pitiful fourth effort - a perfect example of trying to wring out one too many films from a franchise - was one of the worst major studio productions I've ever seen. A rival even for those unrecognisable 'Sherlock Holmes' abominations of late.
I'm very torn about this set. I really love the first and third film and loathe the second and 4th film. I think I'm just going to wait until they release this films individually or find a nice used set later on. I've waited this long for the blu-ray, and I do have a mountainous wish list of titles that I would much rather have than the embarrassing 4th flick.
I'll likely hold out until the films are released separately. I have zero interest in the 4th film. I saw it in the theater, but just didn't like the story as much as I hoped I would. $30 tops.
I'm still waiting on buying the LOTR:Extended set. I already have all the extras DVDs from the DVD set, and figure at $9.99 a pop for each movie it's worth $30 also. I don't need the extra discs, just like I don't need Crystal Skull.
