Spielberg Confirms No Changes to ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ When it Comes to Blu-Ray

I don’t know what I’m more excited about the fact I know now Raiders is on it’s way to Blu-Ray or that I can enjoy it knowing it’s not been mucked about with in anyway.

At a screening of a fancy digital print of Raiders of the Lost Ark Spielberg had this to say about the digital print, which will was created from the same files which will be used for the Blu-Ray version.

This is the best I think it’s ever looked, because in preparation for the eventual release on blu-ray we had to correct the print again and get the original negative out of the salt mines, and then we had to do the separations, and basically the files, which are just amazing, with all the technology of today, without changing any of the movie materially, we haven’t removed anything, we haven’t added CGI, there’s no digital enhancements! It’s purely the movie you some of you may remember from 1981.

Can’t wait for this one!

Now if they could release it with the original title of  ‘Raiders of the Lost Ark’ and not ‘Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark’ I would be most grateful.
