The Indiana Jones series is coming to Blu-ray on September 18, and to celebrate Lucasfilm is showing off Raiders of the Lost Ark on IMAX screens during a limited engagement. Just imagine every aspect this movie blown up to gigantic proportions: the action, the map room, the snakes, the boulder! I can’t wait.
The screenings start on September 7 and will continue for a week. Steven Spielberg told the New York Times that no special effects were updated for the change in format; they just had to adjust the audio to be better suited for the surround sound. It will be interesting to see how the movie from the ’80s plays out on the unforgiving IMAX screens. The trailer hints at how the two might not go together. I’ll be checking it out regardless.
Check out the trailer for the IMAX release after the break.
