The Making of
 

Post-Production & Beyond

 
Discovered over a decade later when Eric’s mom’s house was undergoing renovation, the electrical wiring in the "bar" was so badly charred that it was a miracle that the house never suffered an electrical fire – or burned down for that matter.
 
Despite such careful attention to detail, the boys managed to misspell Spielberg’s name in the original opening scroll of their film (later corrected).
 
The official “world premiere" screening of Raiders: The Adaptation was in June of 2003 at The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Austin, Texas. The entire engagement was masterminded by Eli Roth, Harry Knowles and Tim League.
Photos of the world premiere can be viewed here.
 
The fiberglass boulder used in Raiders: The Adaptation was discovered and salvaged years later for a 15-year anniversary "reunion" of Raiders: The Adaptation cast members.
 
40 plus hours of outtakes exist from the seven years of shooting. They are currently being digitized and edited down in preparation of a documentary.
