Quint from Comic-Con: "Indiana Jones... I always knew some day you'd come walking back through my door..."



Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. So, I have the big Paramount panel to finish up... a nice little write up, but I want to do a specific story on INDIANA JONES 4. This followed IRON MAN, which was a kick-ass presentation... stay tuned for my rundown of that. The INDIANA JONES theme started to mass cheering. Suddenly the screen blinked and Steven Spielberg is sitting there, linked live by satellite. I think they meant to only frame him sitting on a set, but you could see a familiar tan elbow and brown fedora tip next to him. After welcoming the audience and saying hello to Comic-Con, Spielberg introduced Harrison Ford, completely decked out who was funny and full of life. Felt like Indiana Jones again. Ford introduced his side-kick. All the girls (and some guys) cheered and then he said, "This is my side-kick... Ray Winstone." Winstone was dressed exactly as Indiana Jones' partner should be dressed as... dusty, earth tones. Then Ford introduced Shia LaBeouf as "my other side-kick." Shia was in his leather greaser outfit, but had a lot of scraggly growth... light beard. He just kept saying, "What the hell am I doing here? I mean, look at this group..." said he was totally out of place. Then Spielberg abruptly stood up and said, "You guys hold it down... I have to get something." There was an uncomfortable few seconds then Spielberg walked back in with another director's chair. He opens it, revealing "Marion Ravenwood" stitched onto the chair. Then he brought Karen Allen out... Good God what a moment... she looks exactly the same!



It wasn't much info, but the old geek juices are flowing pretty strong now. I can't bloomin' wait!

    Kick ass

    by Heckles

    Okay Quint, you have officially made me geek out for this. I knew it was going to happen, but dammit, not this soon! Great scoop homie.

    Holy crap!!

    Rating how excited I was to see TPM a year before release - 7/10. Rating how excited I am to see INDY 4 a year before release - 11/10. The bar has been raised. :)

    so glad she is back!

    How old is she?

    by SpencerTrilby

    cuz I so wanna make love with her... I don't care for the make up or lighting, she may be 55 year old now she looks exactly the same, which means lovely. Hot. Marion FUCKING Ravenwood. I'm so hyped it hurts. Thank you Steven. Hope it lives up to the hype.

    "I learned to hit you in the last ten years!"

    by spud mcspud

    Fantastic to see Karen Allen is involved. This is the first bit of news on this movie that makes me think it might be worthwhile. Shia is like the anti-Allen: he's a likeable kid, but is he on a mission to fuck up established franchises (hopelessly miscast as Chas in CONSTANTINE - haven't seen TRANSFORMERSKABOOOOM! - hopelessly miscast in INDY IV????)<P> Nothing beats seeing that smile, though. Marion is BACK - and she has more balls than any man in this series!!!

  • July 26, 2007, 7:10 p.m. CST

  • July 26, 2007, 7:15 p.m. CST

    oh dear.

    by AllieJamison

    just the imagination of Indy and Marion in one scene and what tension and emotional baggage ensues from that is freaking awesome. thanks for posting all that, quint. thanks for posting it Quint.

  • July 26, 2007, 7:18 p.m. CST

    I guess

    by AllieJamison

    Allen is about nine years younger than Ford...I think, which fits right into the supposed age gap between Indy and Marion. I actually like Indy's tiny little Waschbärbauch or ...idea of a beergut (we don't want to exaggerate here) .... looks cute.

  • July 26, 2007, 7:18 p.m. CST

    Yup, I forgot to thank you Quint

    by SpencerTrilby

    so thank you VERY MUCH. <p> Now put the crappy camcorded footage of Iron Man online. NOW. Please.

    OK. Now I'm souped

    by Darth Thoth

    Wow! I REALLY REALLY REALLY hope this is good. I was against an Indy IV but I hope to goodness they prove me wrong and alleviate my fears. Bringing Marion back is a great move/ step in that direction.

  • July 26, 2007, 7:31 p.m. CST

    Its gonna be the best of all the movies!

    by hypnotron

    I just know...

    She looks younger than Ford

    by lost.rules

    Which is surprising

  • July 26, 2007, 7:33 p.m. CST

    Karen Allen has aged a LOT better than Harrison Ford

    by Mullah Omar

    That's pretty wild. Maybe Indy should be the sidekick in this one, because he's going to look fragile compared to everyone else.

  • July 26, 2007, 7:34 p.m. CST

    wow

    by NormanFell

    i got goosebumps when i saw that pic. awesome

  • July 26, 2007, 7:36 p.m. CST

    Fuck Spielberg's wife! And Fuck that Nazi Bitch too!

  • July 26, 2007, 7:37 p.m. CST

    ...

    by AllieJamison

    Just to clarify: Karen Allen: born in 51 <br> Ford: born in 42. <br> <br> It was about time they dumped that shitty synch Raiders March version on the official site.

    The new design of the web site. "Property of Indiana"

    by lost.rules

    Makes me think that the Ark maybe what they're going after. Makes sense if Marion, and perhaps Ravenwood are going to be in it.

    This and the new Star Trek in the same year? 2008 is going to eat 2007 for breakfast.

  • July 26, 2007, 7:57 p.m. CST

    OMG!

    by AllieJamison

    Shia's "Oh my god", "what am I doing here", "I'm so out of place", "I haven't been doing anything but watching the movies back to back to back to back to back to back to back" is getting a bit redundant...but...who cares.

  • July 26, 2007, 7:58 p.m. CST

    This grotesque age fixation some people seem to have...

    by mr. brownstone

    pisses me right off.

  • July 26, 2007, 8:07 p.m. CST

    the old question

    by AllieJamison

    just looked at the pics at cinematical (who still haven't learned to spell shia's name). If Shia's going to look sexier than Ford my female senses will be confused. Why the hell did they have to put him in? I hope I'll get good answers in May.

  • July 26, 2007, 8:15 p.m. CST

    So it could be the same crate...

    by wadi77

    Marion is in the movie, the official website is showing the crate, and they display the Ark at the Comic Con, is this a hint?<p> The Ark is in the movie?

  • July 26, 2007, 8:17 p.m. CST

    Is there video of the satellite feed?

    by Forestal

    Someone please put it online! We need to see it!!! Please!

  • July 26, 2007, 8:29 p.m. CST

    Yup. That was offically cool!

    by Col. Tigh-Fighter

    Thanks Quint! This just might kick a whole lot of ass! VERY HAPPY NOW.

  • July 26, 2007, 8:31 p.m. CST

    i really hope this doesn't revolve around the Ark

    by finky089

    If it comes into play at some point, fine. But don't make it the Macguffin from the start. <P> and yeah, those pics got my geekjuice flowing!

  • July 26, 2007, 8:32 p.m. CST

    wadi77

    by Mighty_Messenger

    The Ark must be in this movie. IndyCollector is right, the only numbers that differ from the box with the ark in raiders is 5 & 7, so that must be a typing error, or (not likely) the error has been deliberately made to confuse the fans, to keep us guessing...

    by TheGhostWhoLurks

    He's not looking so good next to Karen. I thought she was plain Jane and Margo Kidder-ish in the first Indy film, but she's truly aged FANTASTICALLY.

  • July 26, 2007, 9:06 p.m. CST

    Lucas?

    by Squeevil

    Maybe seeing Ford don the hat & whip will give Lucas a big, heaping case of nostalgia and he'll finally break down and give us Episodes 7,8,9...c'mon the signs are there...the "Han shot first T-Shirt". There might be hope yet. And Sweet Baby Ninja Jesus, this film looks fantastic! Karen Allen, oh yes. Hearing that great John Williams theme on the IJ website...fantastic!

    by mavrckofhemlok

    Has anyone noticed that the official website update has the crate that contains the Ark from Raiders on the front page? I know two numbers of the serial number are switched, but if that's not confirmation of the Ark in this film I don't know what is.

    Shocked

    by Larry of Arabia

    I'm amazed at how few leaks there are from this set. It shows how seriously everybody involved is taking this. Even if the movie doesn't live up to expectations (and how can it?) they are working hard, not relying on CGI, and seem to be having fun. It's in contrast to the "soulless" reports that were coming back from Episode I.

    New Line showcase at Comic Con

    by Trader Groucho 2

    They played clips from Good Luck Chuck and 3:10 to Yuma. For Good Luck Chuck they trotted out Jessica Alba and Dane Cook, and the director. After they were through, I noticed a lot of people streaming out. For 3:10 Peter Fonda and Ben Foster appeared. The clips for both flicks look interesting. Director and Cook both say Alba shows some serious comedic chops. Overall, the star appearances were not especially enlightening. <p> Third group out was for some Clive Barker horror thing, Meat Train something or other. Clip had great train in a tunnel cinematography, but otherwise didn't grab me. After some cast members and Clive Barker were introduced and Barker started talking, I couldn't stick around. Something about Barker bugged.

    Regarding Karen Allen's still being "hot"

    by ConanBaltar

    That's such a fuzzy AND far away picture that it's hard to tell whether or not she it still "hot". She COULD be like one of those Monet paintings where the closer you get to it, the more it breaks apart. I submit to you that she probably still is good looking, but in a more post-botox, post-facelift, early-fifties sorta way. Either way, she is still a MILF....though perhaps she has graduated to GILF.

  • July 27, 2007, 2:31 a.m. CST

    Karen Allen must have spent about ten hours...

    by Sledge Hammer

    ...in the make up chair, I mean man she looked seriously rough on the special features in the Indiana Jones dvd collection. Scarily so. But still, great to see her back and done up well for the film, hopefully she's still able to bring the same spirit to the role that she did originally.

    The issue of the actors' ages and appearances

    by tylermo

    Most people have complimented Harrison and Karen on the their time-worn appearances, but I'm still amazed at those who want to nitpick Harrison Ford's gut, or Karen Allen on the special features of the IJ dvd box. Hell, I bought the IJ set and the classic Battlestar set the day they were released, and yes, Allen looked older. ANd, judging from some screen captures of the set footage, she looks better now. But for Christ sakes, the woman is 55 or 56. As for the dvd interviews, I salute her for not having stretched her face like Mary Tyler Moore and Dolly Parton. As for her looking better, it's probably makeup, or whatever. Don't really care. Seems like(from other stories) that she's a class act, and I'm excited to see her return. Probably just going to be some talk about Indy getting back in the saddle, or our kid blah, blah, blah. I would rather see her in some action sequences, but I doubt it. Here's hoping she and Harrison can deliver a little of the old Raiders magic. Let's face it, it's hard to recreate iconic films, songs, tv programs, etc. Original SW vs. Prequels, Elton John 1970's vs. the Lion King music are two good examples. As for tying in the ark too much, I'd rather they not do it. If they pull off, they're shit on a stick. If not, they're just shit, and have tainted the great ROTLA. ANyway, I'm pumped, and will be the first in line for the midnight show!

    Drew Struzan

    by jwnulife

    I don't know about you fanboys out there but I gotta tell you, I'm a little dissapointed in the new Drew Struzan artwork for the posters. The large, silhouetted, worm's eye view of Indy is a just a tad bit conventional and not in keeping with the painterly style of his other examples. There is the painterly collage of previous indy images but the poster as a whole, just smacks of laziness and is largely unimaginative. The most promising example is the one where Indy is on the horse, but it doesn't make any logical sense with a younger, more buffed star. What's wrong with depicting an older Harrison Ford?

  • July 27, 2007, 11:34 a.m. CST

    Just to be clear...

    by kiddae

    ...I've nothing against Harrison having a gut - cranky old bastard's 65, of COURSE he's allowed a gut. I just don't think anyone should be making an Indiana Jones movie at this point. Hybrid16, you said "I'd much rather see an older Indy than Ford pretending to be a younger Indy and looking stupid", but the latter is exactly what you're gonna get. Harrison Ford's gonna be pretending to be about 15 years older than he was in Raiders Of The Lost Ark, when he's actually 26 years older. Shia LaBeouf should be playing his GRANDson, for crying out loud.

    He is fatter than in any of the previous 3 installments. And despite working out for Temple of Doom, there are some shots where his gut is clearly exposed.

    Marion Nude

    by Abominable Snowcone

    If you want to see Karen Allen's hey nanni-nannoo, buy or rent the 1984 film "Until September." It was the "Basic Instict" of its time. I can't recall how much sex was in it, but enough that some patrons walk out of the theater at my showing. Don't know why. Who wouldn't want to see Marion on top and riding the pony? And Bronx Cheer, if your mom looks like that, send her over. I've got some treasure for her.

    Ford's "Gut"

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    Ford's midsection has always been sort of been thick (neither doughy nor super-cut). Yet he always seemed to be in good shape. Check out that apartment kitchen scene in BLADE RUNNER for a good comparison.<P>At this point, I'd be more concerned over the condition of Harrison's knees than anything else.

    by just pillow talk

    He's not a fat bastard by any means, and look at Connery in his later years. He was still able to more or less pull it off. No, if the tone and look is still there, and Harrison's heart is in it, then we'll have another good Indy film. <p>Abom, those are indeed handcuffs. She likes it rougher as she's gotten older.

    so if that's fat, I guess I'm fat. But he looked okay in that flick. No, he was never 'ripped,' but what college professor is? Jesus Christ, he's just a GUY, like John McClane. His occupation doesn't call for him to be ripped, nor do his extracurricular activities as an adventurer and "obtainer of fine antiquities" necessarily mean he'll be buff as a result. The only people who should be allowed to tease harrison about having a gut are people who are skinnier than he is. Or better yet, skinnier and over 50. Cut the guy some slack. For his pants.

    Yeah, can't emphasize enough the G4

    by WX1

    <p>. . . airing of the Spielberg message from the set. He, Ford, Winston . . .</P> <p>You can't help but feel the positive vibe from the message; you could almost guess Spielberg was gonna say something like "this one's for the fans" something along those lines, 'specially being that this'll probably be the last Indy for Ford. Seems like they're having LOADS of fun in these prelim' filming stages. Ford and Spielberg look a little grey, admittedly. To me, the decision for Spielberg's making this fourth one is, "oh, OK, so, uh, heh, 2 and 3 wasn't to your liking? Ah, I see. You . . . you honestly think I've lost the magic, eh? Oh, heh, see, who put d'is t'ing togeder? Huh? Me, tha's who; who do I trust? ME!" This movie's gonna kick major. At the end of the segment, Speilberg brings out a director's chair with, I believe I saw "Marion Ravenwood" emblazoned on the front of the chair's back support. And none other than Karen Allen comes out to join the crew -- doesn't look like she's aged a day from "Raiders." <p>And, heck, in old age? I'm looking FORWARD to the damn spaghetti arms and leg and fat belly. Church, damnit!</p>

    by MTXX

    Old characters from the series reappearing... exotic Hawaii locations, pictures of South American pyramids, rumours about aliens. It looks more and more certain that this movie is inspired by the last couple of really weird Tintin adventures. Which is a good thing, that's basically like returning to the orginal source of Indiana Jones. I loved those books as a kid, and if Spielberg and Peter Jackson are making a Tintin movie trilogy afterwards, then it'll be like getting four Tintin movies in a row.

Spielberg and Ford were there and everyone was in huge anticipation of some new info. As Spielberg said there was another character... out comes Kate Capshaw dressed in full "Anything Goes" sequined red dress and full musical number. The crowd started booing, and Spielberg says... "I'm Just Kidding", and out comes Karen Allen and everyone cheers... I woke up and was laughing to myself for about half an hour before I could go back to sleep. Would have been so cool if thay had done that.

Endless nostalgic obsessions with former successes instead of dreams of a better tomorrow. It's frustrating. Do we REALLY need a sequel to Raiders ~25 years after the original? Can we just move on please? Write another story for Christ's sake.<br><br>That said, Karen Allen looks nice. It would almost be worth it if they were going to reboot the series with Indy and Marion's son (not played by Shia LeBouf), and have the two of them remain out of the action for the most part.

    by Big Dumb Ape

    You know, who cares if she had any so-called work done or if she just naturally looks glowing because she's been away from the Hollywood grind for an extended period and is simply all the better rested and aged for it? I don't care, I'm just happy she's back. She looks fantastic in the Quicktime clip and in the official still, so like all other geeks I'm ecstatic to see her back since it instantly makes this new film "feel" right -- far more so than any other addition could have added to the film's appeal.<p>As a result, seeing her back and suited up -- much like seeing Ford the same way -- goes straight to the heart strings of every movie fan, and I think that's the real reason you're seeing so much love being poured out for her. It just feels great to see them together again, to see them looking good together despite the years apart, and it just makes all hopes rise even more that maybe...just maybe...they'll get this thing right.<p>Well, I think that's why there's so much love being show. Unless I'm mistaken about a whole shitload of you and you really DO have a private MILF fetish that you've been hiding!

    by Big Dumb Ape

    By the way, in reading this Talkback, I noticed how more than a few fessed up to having had a teenage hormonal surge when first seeing RAIDERS and Marion in her white gown. In wanting to check out something about Karen Allen, I went to IMDB and discovered something.<p>If you go to her Photo Gallery and to Picture 8, you'll find a verrrrrrry nice shot of her in the RAIDERS gown. I can't recall seeing it before, but I'm sure it will inspire many here to relive their teenage warmth in the theater.<p>Best of all, you can now look at her in the privacy of your own home, which means you also don't have to shift that large bucket of popcorn over your lap to hide anything awkward...ahem!

    Oddly moving.

    by C Legion

    The video, especially the appearance of Karen Allen, was like a huge shot of nostalgia, I'd just woken up and it was almost overwhelming. It's rare to feel like a kid again, even momentarily. I hope the film is a worthy addition, and I don't see why not, Spielberg is still a great director when he's working with the right material. He's probably the most technically proficiant director in the world, Munich was awesome, he just needs the right script. See the much maligned War of the Worlds for example, stunning first half, then falls apart due to a weak story. Anyway, Indy 4 and John Rambo next year, fuck yeah!

    Did you guys see Jon Favreau's interview with O. Munn?

    by BringingSexyBack

    He looked like he totally wanted to titfuck her. I don't blame him.

    THIS is the movie Josh Hartnett should have been in

    by BringingSexyBack

    with Ford. He would've been a great Indy Jr.

    Anyone here good at lip-reading?

    by togmeister

    Spielberg said the title of the film, but it was muted out. I didn't catch it, but it sure as anything WASN'T 'The City of the Gods'. Anyway, love the new behind-the scenes video. Anyone else notice the portrait of Marcus Brody in the corridor?

    Ford is not fat

    by mastes360

    Seriously he does a bit in these warped and blurry pics but he always looks kind of fat in his films. Take 6 Days Seven Nights, when he had his t shirt on, he looked a bit bloated but when he was topless, he was lean and had a sixpack, he always looks a little 'thick' but its pure muscle.

    Star Wars - Episodes 7, 8 & 9.....

    by Ray Gamma

    If Lucas finally agreed to do these, with as many members of the Original Trilogy cast as possible, it would be a golden opportunity to completely erase the damage done by certain elements of the Prequels. </P> <P> Hell, I'm not even a Prequel hater anyway, and I would even permit a cameo from Jar Jar Binks as an aging leader or something, if only they would make 7, 8 & 9... Can you even begin to imagine the web of fantastic possibilities in a new series of Star Wars SEQUELS??!!

    too bad carrie fisher hasnt aged as good as karen allen has. or her face anyways. her hands and arms look kinda wrinkly in the legit pic i saw. what if they hired new actors to play the elder parts of luke, leia, lando and han? or possibly did a cgi version of the characters ala ghostbusters III or that fake new republic trailer. the dr seuss movie animation doesn't look half bad. how would you feel if they did them any of those ways?

    I noticed that also togmeister.

    Huge Clue on Official Site!!!

    by cymraeg_cowboy

    On the crate on the main page of the offical site(indianajones.com) the number 9906573 is written. If you insert this number as a URL (adding.com to the end)you get the wikipedia page for the ark of the covenant.....hmmm....maybe the ark is a about to make a reappearence after all..... or perhaps I'm looking for clues in everything since cloverfield/Dark Knight campaigns!!

    awesome discovery cymraeg

    by LarryTheCableGuy

    i wonder what else there is to be found on that site? and what does this exactly mean? is it the arc again?

  • July 28, 2007, 9:42 p.m. CST

    Great find, cymraeg!!!

    by decypher44

    Go get those clues! And while you're at it, can you do some work on Cloverfield/1-18-01/Slusho?

  • July 28, 2007, 9:57 p.m. CST

    Larry and decypher

    by cymraeg_cowboy

    Thank you... yup working on cloverfield, but been pipped on everything i've found so far..... could you go to the newer thread for Indy and make a comment as some guy is determined to sh*t all over this find!

    Allie Jamison & C Legion: Ah, the IRONY...

    by Big Dumb Ape

    Ah, the irony of back to back posts sometimes. Up above, Allie Jamison, you wrote: "That new video on the official site is amazing. David Koepp sitting in his freaking chair, rewriting stuff"...<p>...Only to immediately be followed by your post, C Legion, where you wrote: "Spielberg is still a great director when he's working with the right material. He's probably the most technically proficiant director in the world. MUNICH was awesome, he just needs the right script. See the much maligned WAR OF THE WORLDS for example -- stunning first half, then falls apart due to a weak story."<p>The irony being that War of the Worlds WAS written by Koepp.<p>Man, as an old time Indy fan, I really want this to be good. And WOTW really DID suck ass, in no small part due to a totally shitty script. So now more than ever I REALLY hope the rumors are true that they're using like 90%-plus of Frank Darabont's script for this thing...

  • July 29, 2007, 12:26 a.m. CST

    Cymraeg, I totally salute you...

    by Big Dumb Ape

    I swear, I generally suck at mystery puzzles (which would also explain why I prefer first person shooters like HALO over games like MYST), so I totally salute you for discovering that. I wouldn't have even thought in a million years to plug in the numbers that way. Way to go!<p>In fact, when you really stop and think about it, for all the viral marketing that goes on these days (like Cloverfield) where they want you to try and solve online clues so it will take you to a new web site or give you a new reveal, what BETTER property could you possibly have to leave a bread crumb trail then a new Indiana Jones movie? Over the next year, I'm sure Paramount/ Lucas/ Spielberg will plant a ton of stuff to outdo all the other studios/movies in the viral creativity department...

    Yeah, but where the hell is SALLAH?

    by The Ghost of Scrappy Doo

    And Karen Allen looks like she lost some of the weight she was packing in the "Where Are They Now" faux-documentary on the Animal House Double Secret Probation edition DVD. Not that she wasn't still pretty, but I guess being in a new movie would make me hit the Stair Master too.

  • July 29, 2007, 1:09 a.m. CST

    Happy to see Karen Allen back in INDY
