Star Wars and the Marvel may be bigger. The Jurassic franchise may be more cross-generational. Back to the Future, Batman/DC, Mission: Impossible and Fast and Furious certainly have their own dedicated fanbases. But for me, the Indiana Jones saga is the best one of all.
I’ve watched the first three films more than any others and will return to them again and again for as long as I live. It’s popcorn cinema in its purest, most thrilling form.
And now, all four Indy adventures look and sound better than they ever have before. In honor of the 40th Anniversary for Raiders of the Lost Ark, Lucasfilm and Paramount are releasing the Indiana Jones series on 4K Ultra HD for the first time this summer.
Until then, you can enjoy these five “modern trailer” promos, one for every film (below) plus one for the overall franchise (above), each one a nostalgic minute-plus clip reel reminding us why these blockbusters will endure for as long as people love movies.
The Indiana Jones 4-movie 4K Collection will be available on June 8, 2021, just four days before Raiders‘ 40th birthday.
