'Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark' Gets a 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray SteelBook ...

Raiders of the Lost Ark is still considered one of Steven Spielberg''s finest features and Harrison Fords'' first outing as Indiana Jones is just iconic. Paramount Pictures and Lucasfilm are now releasing a stunning new 4K Blu-ray SteelBook that is now available in a museum.

The steelbook will be released on June 14, 2022, and features the classic poster art of Indy with his whip in front of the famous Ark of the Covenant. This limited-edition release also comes with a mini reproduction poster from the film and a digital code. Raiders will be the first of four SteelBook releases, including Temple of Doom on July 12, last Crusade on August 16, and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will be released on September 20.

When Raiders was released in 1981, it flawlessly recaptured the magic that was discovered in the old adventure serials of the 30s and 40s. The action sequences were amazing, the performance was captivating, and everyone in the movie was stunned by the fact that the film received the PG-13 rating. That is, as long as the movie gets its own score, it''s more important that everyone in the movie will recognize it.

The Raiders simply altered cinema''s history so that every adventure film today has attempted to recreate Indiana Jones'' unique charm. Indy, the Mummy, Tomb Raider, National Treasure, and Uncharted all have to thank for their success. Every new film in the genre strives to be Indiana Jones. With only a few minor exceptions, few have captured the hearts of movie enthusiasts.

In a world in which the sky appears to be falling on physical media, it is great to see a large studio like Paramount still releasing fantastic new additions such as these for their classic films. There is no better time to release these new beautiful SteelBooks as Indiana Jones 5 is expected to release next year on June 30.

You may pre-order the new Raiders of the Lost Ark SteelBook on Best Buy or Amazons Websites for $24.99. However, if you cannot wait till then, you can stream all four high-flying adventure films on Paramount+ now.
