The world’s greatest archeologist and adventurer Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones’ fears came true at Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego, as throngs of live snakes greeted fans of the iconic franchise. Attendees at the Lucasfilm booth were given the opportunity to pose for photos in front of a pit of live, slithering snakes within a re-creation of the famous “Well of Souls” scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark. All of this was to celebrate the upcoming September 18th release of Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures on Blu-ray. Check out the interactive snake pit and the rest of the press release below.
The highly anticipated Blu-ray collection is being distributed by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution and will include all four of George Lucas and Steven Spielberg’s epic adventures, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Whether traveling across the globe in search of the Ark of the Covenant, a mystical stone, Holy Grail or even an alien Crystal Skull, the Indiana Jones films have built an international fan base through high adventure, fantastic story-telling and a love of the man with the hat and whip.
The films in the epic and award-winning franchise have been remastered for this landmark release and the cinematic classic that started it all—Raiders of the Lost Ark—has been meticulously restored under the supervision of director Steven Spielberg and sound designer Ben Burtt. In addition to all of the thrilling adventures in sparkling high definition, the set includes seven hours of fascinating documentaries, featurettes and interviews with cast members and filmmakers.
