Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile get spruced up

Romancing the Stone and Jewel of the Nile are both being turned into special editions and being put into a nice collector’s set from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.

In Romancing the Stone, Romance novelist Joan Wilder lives for – and in – a fantasy world. But when her sister is kidnapped in Colombia and the only chance to save her is to bring a treasure map to her captors, reality quickly becomes stranger than fiction. Thrown into a jungle full of gunfire, mudslides and poisonous snakes, Joan’s only hope lies with Jack Colton, a rugged wanderer straight out of her novels. Together, they’ll have to outwit the bandits and survive the jungle if they’re to save her sister and find the secret of “El Corazon!”

The DVD is coming in anamoprhic widescreen and Dolby Digital 5.1, the disc includes eight deleted scenes and four featurettes.
Jewel of the Nile picks up when a handsome stranger lures Joan Wilder away to his North African kingdom and Jack Colton won’t let her go without a fight. Aided by Ralph, Jack finds Joan swept up in a political war and in search of a mysterious jewel. To prevent the jewel – and Joan – from falling into the wrong hands, he must face the greatest challenge of his life… and rekindle a romance now turned stone-cold!

Jewel is widescreen as well with a Dolby Digital 4.0 soundtrack. Two featurettes and six deleted scenes are here as well.

On August 29th, you can pick up the titles individually or as a gift set for $29.98.
