Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull DVD Released on October 14th!

In a little under 2 weeks we’ll all be able to enjoy all the glory of Irina Spalko in the comfort of our own bunkers. On October 14th the 2-disc special edition of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will be released on both DVD and Blu-Ray. A new-and-improved collection of all 4 movies in one, the Indiana Jones - The Complete Adventures Collection will also be available the same day.
