Paramount Pictures has announced all four Indiana Jones franchise films will be arriving in 4k for the first time. The Indiana Jones 4-Movie Collection celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Raiders of the Lost Ark that first premiered in June, 1981.
The films were restored from 4k scans of the original negatives and are presented in 2160p (4k) resolution with Dolby Vision/HDR10 and Dolby Atmos audio. Steven Spielberg approved the restoration that included improving all visual effects for today’s standards.
