“When I saw the stunning quality of the picture and heard the enhanced sound in an IMAX theater, I was quite literally blown away and hope that audiences will enjoy the experience as much as I did,” said Steven Spielberg.
“We are honored to present all the excitement of Indiana Jones in a way it’s never been experienced before — IMAX,” added Greg Foster, chairman and president, IMAX Filmed Entertainment.
Under the supervision of 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 blockbuster. The Blu-ray set features all four films as well a new two-part doc, On Set with Raiders of the Lost Ark, fearing nearly an hour of rarely seen footage from the set.
