    Indiana Jones Trilogy - Tomorrow.
    Back To The Future Trilogy - Yesterday.
    Star Wars - December 2002, December 2003 (with extra scenes), December 2004 (original classics), December 2005 (extra wide version)... it goes on.

    If you haven't guessed yet, I'm taking the ****.

    If anyone out there can answer this question (probably one of the two big men G - George or God), can they also tell me the meaning of life?

    Cybersoga.

    Please note the following info is mostly web heresay and not confirmed, and applies to the R1 versions only.

    Star Wars Trilogy - Your guess is as good as any body (i.e. no one knows)

    Indiana Jones Trilogy - THIS IS ONLY A RUMOUR: The three films are supposed to be being released on a two disk set per film with ROTLA being slated for release first, in November this year.

    Back to the Future - you can go to the official website at: www.bttfmovie.com and sign up for the newsletter that will update you via email on DVD release news. The web site itself does not offer any extra info though. If the rumour's are to be believed these are to be released in a box set, slated for release at the end of this year (in time for Xmas).

    That's the best I can do I'm afraid.

    Cheers.

    You can get the sleeve art for Back to the future at www.digitalbits.com page 10.

    Like it has been said only Star Wars disc this year will be AOTC in November along with a hopeful release of ROTLA the same month, we wait with baited breath.

    The original Star Wars discs wont be seen before 2004/5

    Original Star wars trilogy will be releasesed when the next two have been out in........2006. Yep a whole four years to wait for the films.

    This is due to lucas wanting to release the others on DVD first as he is recording a whole load of features that will make the originals fit in better with the new ones (supossedly)

    Bttf is this summer - august I think. A trailer was released and can be found on the JP3 dvd.

    Indiana Jones - I'm guessing with the new movie which starts filming this year.

    and where exactly has this little gem of information come from... the last I heard IJ4 was still a pipedream.
    I doubt Lucas has much time to devote to the project right now.

    Sorry to disappoint but IJ4 is a long way from production. "Development Hell" I think they call it! :rolleyes:

    I think you mean pre, pre, pre production and is a hell of a long way off from filming.
    According to the IMDb a script has been co-written by M Night Shalaman (sic) creator of sixth sense.

    The only details that have been finalised are Harrison Ford as Indy, Kate Capshaw as Willy and a certain Mr Spielberg to direct. It was rumoured that Sean Connery would return as Indy Snr. Sadly no Denholm Elliot this time though and I imagine John Rhys Davis might still be busy with another popular franchise.

    It's dated 2004 which seems a fair guess. Thinking about it Lucas (who will surely want some input as the character's creator) should be finished with Star Wars episode 2 and 3 by that time, but he seems determined to spend years developing stuff for the episode 4-6 DVDs. So god knows when we will see IJ4.

    I wish they'd just give us some tasty versions of the Back to the Future and Indy trilogys, remastered pictures with dolby and dts soundtracks. I would buy the extras later if they did it like that.

    Not sure if you knew that Denholm Elliot had died?

    Anyway, discussion about IJ4 seems to have moved to a new thread :rolleyes: entitled IJ4.

    Regarding Indy IV, check out the following links:
    http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=11308
    http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=11379

    Only small snippets but I think it's safe to say that this movie will happen, the only question is when. It's certainly not in POST production!

    Regarding the Raiders trilogy as it now stands, Paramount have said that they would be released 1 per year starting the end of 2002. Just don't ask me to substantiate this because I can't remember where I saw or heard it but I have heard this from 2 seperate places.

    Mr Lucas has said that Star Wars original trilogy won't be released until 2006. This is to give time to finish EP3 and then give them the DVD package that they deserve. I say release a standard edition now, we will buy them, then buy the extra special editions in 2006.

    To the best of my knowledge the BTTF trilogy is due for release quarter 4 2002.

    Im guessing you mean as in 'postal service' production.

    The parties involved are still just writing to each other to see if they want to do anything about actually making this movie one day...

    ;)

    for Star Wars, with Episode 1 there was a long wait for the DVD release, so no release after that until episode 2 in the cinemas.

    Now, if episode 2 is released on DVD in November, then that leaves a couple of empty years where Lucas aren't making any money. Plenty of time for a re-release of the original trilogy.

    Also, I've noticed that episode 1 is back in the charts in HMV. Perhaps interest is being rekindled due to the release of the movie? So a release of the original trilogy before episode 3 could fit very nicely.

    Of course, this is probably just wishful thinking..

    Interesting, these films are not coming out for so long......

    Indiana Jones 1-3 was on BBC the other month, and we recorded the MPEG2 data transmitted by SkyDigital (about 3.8Gbytes per film) which is quite good quality widescreen, if only Pro-Logic sound.

    StarWars4-6 was on Sky Widescreen again we recorded the MPEG2 data transmitted by Sky (about 4 Gig per film), the quality is good, but there are a lot of "film dust" on the transfers (obviously the films that were given to Sky had not been "cleaned up").

    Bravo have also just transmitted almost the entire B5 episodes, which again we've recorded the transmitted MPEG2 data, on average 3 episodes = 3.8 Gig, quality isnt excellent as they used a low bitrate, and they are all 4:3

    Channel 5 broadcast TwinPeaks first series, but I missed one episode :(

    Time to get a DVD-R me thinks :)

    Later

    Alex

    Not sure what your point is?

    Raiders which was aired by the BBC recently was AWFUL quality on Digital and even they admitted that it wasn't fit for broadcast and should never have been put out.

    Also, the Indy films were 2.35:1 and were cropped to 16:9. :mad:

    Even with a DVD recorder, Digital TV doesn't even come close in terms of pic quality compared to DVD.

    I've even bought DVDs on the same day the film has been shown on TV, something I would of never of done with VHS.

    And if I know a film is due out on DVD soon I will avoid watching it on TV. e.g Back to the Future on Sky and The Godfather last year on Sky.

    I used to record and archive a lot films off TV but now there's no point. I'd rather wait for it to come out on DVD where I know i'll get a superior product.
