Raiders of the Lost Ark will be screened at IMax theaters for one week starting September 7. Following the big BIG screen showings, all of the Indy films will be released on Blu-Ray as Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures. Fortunately, Steven Spielberg didn't mess with Raiders other than to enhance the audio for surround sound. From an interview with him in the NYT:
“When the boulder is rolling, chasing Indy through the cave, you really feel the boulder in your stomach, the way you do when a marching band passes by, and you’re standing right next to it...”
“‘Raiders’ is a movie of my own, that I can actually stand to watch from beginning to end. In that sense, it has a special place in my heart. I don’t rewrite it in my mind; I’m not kicking myself for what I didn’t do. I’m just going along for the ride like everybody else."
"That's a Big Boulder, Indy" (NYT)
