The documentary on the ultimate Indy film is set to be released on Blu-ray in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Drafthouse Films says 'Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made' will hit Blu-ray on August 16.
The true, decades-spanning tale of the greatest fan film ever made. After Steven Spielberg's classic Raiders of the Lost Ark was released 35 years ago, three 11-year-old boys from Mississippi set out on what would become a 7-year-long labor of love and tribute to their favorite film: a faithful, shot-for-shot adaptation of the action adventure film. They finished every scene...except one; the film's explosive airplane set piece. Over two decades later, the trio reunited with the original cast members from their childhood in order to complete their masterpiece. Featuring interviews with John Rhys Davies, Eli Roth and more, Raiders! is the story of the project's culmination, chronicling the friends' dedication to their artistic vision--mixed in with some movie magic--to create the greatest fan film ever made.
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
