Sit down young man, or I will turn this car right around and go back home.

Seriously, though -

Indiana Jones- reportedly in the works for Paramount anniversary celebration release in 2012

Jame Bond - In the works now that the new Bond movie is in progress. I would think maybe another 3 pack or two is possible for holidays but more likely for 2012.

True Lies - I believe Cameron is working on this one along with the Abyss.

Six Million Dollar Man - complete series released on dvd by Time/Life last year. If there was no BD released at that time, unlikely to see on BD for a long time.

Batman tv- no vhs, no dvd, no bd - still fighting over rights, don't know if we will ever see. Music rights are also issue preventing original WKRP episodes, and the first five seasons of SNL rights were so expensive, we will unlikely see any more of those, either. Ditto for Wonder Years.

We want Indy Jones stuff the early flicks are classics. They deserve Blu Ray quality and we the public want it.

The Bonds are always in demand, can't get enough, but Jaws 3D???? Open up a new world when you pull that off the right way.

Thanks for the info.Many will look forward to some of these titles on blu-ray in 2012.
Universal will be releasing the six mil d m on dvd in 2012 after time life exclusive ends.
Maybe we'll see a blu-ray box set?Batman should be released $$ plus historical significance.

Time Life's exclusive rights to SMDM ends on Nov 1st. So it will be soon after that but probably single seasons released. The BW season 3 will be released in October. As for the others....Next year is NOT an anniversary year for any of the INDIANA JONES movies. This year would have made sense since Raiders came out in 81..but who knows.

True about the Indy aniversary, which Bill Hunt at has pointed out several time. However his sources indicated 2012 for two reasons. The first reason being the flood in the market in Q3 and Q4 2011 of big titles on the market including Star Wars, Jurassic Park, Lord of the Rings EE (released 3 days before Q3), Pulp Fiction, Scarface, Dumbo, Lion King, Looney Tunes Platinum, West Side Story, Last Harry Potter (and probable complete set), and other new releases of summer movies and tv seriies, plus others yet to be announced I am sure. The second reason being 2012 is the 100th Anniversary of Paramount. Why wouldn't they want to use one of their cornerstone properties to celebrate their 100th?

The rights being open to SMDM does not indicate immediate wide release. I believe it took up to and possibly over a year for Get Smart to hit the open market under the same situation.

Oh I hope this is true! Both of these are definite purchases for me. The DVD versions aren't even anamorphic. I hope The Abyss Blu-ray includes the director's cut.

Anyway, I know the James Bond Blu-rays are slowly coming out. I think Die Another Day and a couple of others just came out a week or two ago.

It would be good to get official confirmation from movie studios that the Indiana Jones,rest of the James Bond movies,
True Lies etc. are all being worked on with hd remastering for 2012 or sooner release.Waiting for these is not so
much the issue as not knowing for sure whether or not these titles are scheduled for a future release.

There can really be no question but that the movies under discussion will come out on BD sometime in the future. The question is really WHEN. A few of us aren't getting any younger, you know.

Two guesses? Why two?

Perhaps too much Bond, You Only Live Twice (Special Edition) but the BD version, please, or too much of Nancy Sinatra's song of the same title, You Only Live Twice: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Or maybe you've been watching Nicolas Cage too much: Ghost Rider (Extended Cut) [Blu-ray]

PARAMOUNT PICTURES 1912-2012 - 100 Years. You follow me???

There should be quite an interesting release schedule in 2012 given the CBS/Paramount back catalogue is pretty impressive.

the batman series thing is a disgrace. you know all the indies will come. and bonds. it's inevitable. personally I want more two movies on one disc blu rays for title movies. so that more can be released. movies that otherwise would never come out on blu.

In reply to an earlier post on Aug 15, 2011 1:15:24 PM PDT
I can help you with that. Buy a roundtrip ticket to China. Visit any local DVD shop. Slide the clerk a couple bucks and wink.

There will never be multiple movies on 1 blu-ray disc... except for Drive, He Said in the Criterion BBS Collection.

Steven Spielberg is participating in a 30th anniversary screening (newly restored and digitally projected) of Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark on September 12. Hopefully news of the BD releases of the first three Indy movies will come out of the event.

Making this post in all Bond threads to update subscribers. Posted by Bill Hunt today on his blog, this is official for Germany, but likely applies to the US

And in news today, our friends over at the excellent MI6 James Bond website are reporting that MGM's Bond Blu-ray and DVD releases are going on moratorium in January at least in Germany and probably worldwide. The reason? AS we've reported previously, MGM is currently planning a big "re-launch" of the Bond titles on Blu-ray and DVD in late 2012 (likely October), which will coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the Bond film franchise and also the release of the new Bond 23 film in theatres. I think you can reasonably expect that the remaining 10 Bond films as-yet-unreleased on Blu-ray will finally become available then. More here (and thanks to Bits reader Tim H. for the heads-up).

Paramount has officially announced via press release that the Indiana Jones saga (all four films in a set) will be coming on BD this fall. No specs or date were in the announcement yet.

While this is great news, I hope the Indy BDs will also be available as a three film set for those of us who already have the fourth on Blu-ray, or for those who don't care for the last one at all.

The BD set promo looks awesome, especially in HD, 720p. So glad I have a 32 in tv for a pc monitor.

Be careful, if you blink too much you might miss the whole two or three seconds devoted to Indy IV (one second near the beginning and one second or two near the end). Promo is 1:17 in all.

Cav, looks like it will only be a 4 movie set to start. I think the best we can hope for is the eventual individual releases. Don't think it will just be a tri-release. Like the way we are stuck with Superman IV, Godfather III, Batman & Robin, Rocky V, Rambo III, Spiderman III and Star Trek V.

As people are digging up old threads, part of the original question was on Bond movies, sort of this answer, coming later this year:
