Paramount Home Entertainment has announced Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 14, day-and-date with DVD. With this news those rumors pegging a November 11 bow can finally be put to rest.

The fourth Indiana Jones film and first on Blu-ray will be presented in widescreen 1080p video and THX-Certified 5.1 Dolby TrueHD audio.
