UPDATED!! No...Indy With A Gun & Whip!! No...Greasy-Haired Shia!! No...KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL Pics!

Merrick again... Talkbacker AllieJamison located higher resolution images on the forums of IMDB. I don't know if these pre-date Erwin's original contribution...but here they are. I've replaced our earlier, lesser quality images with the bigger, punchier ones & made them embiggenable.

Merrick here...
I haven't noticed these images elsewhere, so I thought you might enjoy a look. Big thanks to Erwin for sending them along initially & hugs to AllieJamison for finding awesomer copies at IMDB.

    but how believable is it that he's still wearing the same clothes 15 to 20 years later? i hope he wears a different costume most of the movie and then they give him some reasonable explanation for his change into his old gear. i'd like a little more reason than what they pulled in temple of doom.

These pics can be seen without the stamp-thing via a link provided by a guy at the crappy and yet surprising imdb message boards/these are much bigger: <br> <br> <br> <br> <br> Are they infact intended to be in the next EW? Besides the fact that I'm psyched to see those I also find it interesting how fucking CLEAN Indy looks. I can only hope that, on purpose, they chose the stills that reveal the least which also means that Indy isn't seen with bruises and injuries.

    It has nothing to do with being INDY's last adventure. It's the last crusade as in THE Crusades. It was the final journey to find the holy grail.<br><br>It's just like people that criticize "The Last Samurai" - the title was NOT calling Tom Cruise the last samurai warrior. Samurai there was used as plural, and referred to that whole tribe of samurai that he joined up with.

    I wonder why some of you even watch movies anymore...

    by jones1899

    You have gotten so damn cynical about everything that you don't even allow yourselves to enjoy anything. Indy is an archeologist. Just as cops and fireman have uniforms with a practical use that they wear everytime they do the job, so does Indy. I am a graduate in archeology, have doen a ton of field work and MAY have two or three different "uniforms" I would wear. No when you consider this is a fucking movie, well sounds like you all are desperate to find something wrong with a movie that so far looks pretty damn great. Oh yeah and Harrison Ford is old. Happens to the best of us. Fact is he still looks great as the character. Not to mention that this character of Indiana Jones is so beloved because of his human and vulnerable qualities. This movie will continue his story as the world around him changes and as he gets older. There's no better way to do it. Unless you want to digitally erase the wrinkles. Fact of the matter is, no matter what they did with this movie, some of you would bitch to get attention. As an avid fan of these films, I would be angry if I didn't see every last accessory to what is the one of the greatest and most recognizable movie costumes in history. And I'd be pissed if they tried to hide his age and CG it all to hell. Do yourselves a favor and let yourself enjoy the movie. Besides for all your bitchin you know you'll be there opening day - may as well enjoy it right? BTW, the Indiana Jones and the Accidental Poot title is the best yet.

    It looks like they're making him the James Dean-type rebel kid, rolled-up pant cuffs and all, which I guess would make sense timeframe-wise. Don't know how he'll do in 4-D, but in 2-D he looks surprisingly good. <p>Though between his baby face and the high-pants jokes, now I've got "Daddy-O" from MST3K in my head..."hike--hike--hike--hike your pants up..."<p>Oh, and Ford looks great too, though except for the last pic, his outfit looks too clean for me. Pants, sure, but the jacket and hat would look better more worn and rumpled, IMO.<p>Still kind of hard to believe this movie is actually going to exist.

    by skimn

    Sir, we WANT this movie to kick ass. Yes bringing back Karen Allen is a sweet hommage to the fans of Raiders, and it will be a thrill to hear John Williams score blaring from the big screen. But, I am leaning a bit towards M-o-M's theory that this is a bit of a cash-in while Ford can still handle stunt work. Why work in a young character, and hire "hot young actor" Shia LeBeouf, if not to entice the youngsters that weren't around for the almost 20-year-old last installment? I trust Spielberg to deliver, and hope it is great. But remember it wasn't long ago when the words "A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away..." and John Williams theme, promised greatness...

    Most American movies are made to make money - wow, what a shocker. This, of course, makes it incredibly easy for you to call all American film projects you disaprove of cynical cash-ins by "desperate men". The fact is, you are an absolute shit who is never content with liking or disliking something, but is constantly insulting people and properties which don't meet your particular standards of what's "good." <p> Why don't you come clean about why you REALLY hate this new Indy movie? You've stated it often enough in the past, namely that you disapprove of 1950s-era Soviets as the villains. <p> Stop being a condescending, cowardly, pontificating douchenozzle, grow a pair of balls and start displaying some intellectual courage.

You use it as a really cheap device to hide behind opinions which have no real intellectual value.

War of the Worlds was second only to Revenge of the Sith in 2005, Munich was Oscar nominated and he's been producing his ass off, including this year's Transformers. Lucas? You fanbois might hate the prequels but Lucas has about 2.5 billion reasons why he's not losing any sleep over it. Ford? Okay, Ford hasn't had a decent movie in a long time but I seriously doubt that he was the one with his fedora in his hand begging for this movie.</p><p>Of course they're going to rake in a shitload of money on this but it's not like they need it.</p>

    by Jabber_Jaw

    I mean come on!! Couldnt it be remotely fucking possible that Spielberg, Ford and Lucas genuily love this character and this series. If they wanted to cash in they would have done one of the many rejected scripts instead of waiting for one that would do the series justice. Its not like Rob Zombie is "reimaging" Indiana Jones... its all the original creators. I cant wait!! Harrison looks great, who cares if he is older.. its Indiana fucking Jones!! This is a hell of a lot more exciting than most of the crap Hollywood is cranking out... unless the people who are bashing this project is looking forward to another remake of an old TV show.

    I'm thrilled he looks old

    by Larry of Arabia

    Indy was always very human. He always sighed, looked exasperated, and rolled his eyes. Great old man traits. Don't forget that in Raiders the setup *spoiler for idiots who haven't seen the films* was him loosing to Beloq(sp). Then he got captured, and after he escaped he lost the Arc and got captured AGAIN and had to rely on God to save him. He lost Marion. He got captured and beat up throughout the entire film. My memory of Doom is fuzzy, but he lost and was almost killed in the prologue, then again in the prologue to Crusade. Getting a pattern here? In Crusade he got caught by the Nazis, the lost his dad to them again, then the Nazi's got there first, and he got caught AGAIN. If any of our childhood heroes would make the transition to old man well, it's Indy. He lost more often than he won. My only problem will be if he starts winning without the help of someone else. That's not our Indy!

    by I Dunno

    And as much as all the old guy jokes annoy me, the truth is, yes, they took a bit of a risk putting a 65 year old in such an action-intensive shoot. One broken hip and it's time to pack up your shit and go home. Not to mention all the drama with the script. I don't know them personally or anything but Spielberg, Lucas and Ford for that matter seem like they're all at the point in their careers where they're not going to do anything they're not completly in love with. A cash grab would be Spielberg shitting out another Jurassic Park, which he is doing but you'll notice he's not directing.

    by TiVo1138

    I still enjoy the occasionally Indiana Jones night with friends. I read the books, the comics, watched Young Indy, etc. As an honest to God FAN, I'm looking forward to this movie more than anything. I believe they did it out of nostalgia and their own love for the character. You don't spend 12 years of your life trying to get a project off the ground if it's solely for money. Everything we've heard -- the fact that they all seem to sincerely believe that this is going to be the best of the series, the fact that Spielberg is saying no to CGI, the fact that Harrison Ford looks fucking GREAT, and of course Marion is back -- suggests that this will be something worth seeing. All you naysayers can prepare to meet Kahli ... in HELL!

    by jones1899

    Bullshit. There's cautious optimism and then there's cynicism. Also, you mention your supposed love for the Indy saga, but then bash the Last Crusade. And please name for me a young actor out there right now that would not appeal to a younger market. You get one you get the other. I admit to being a bit worried when they cast Shia, but the kid's good. Look, on May 22nd when we all get cozy with our refreshments and witness the return of Indy, no one more than the true fans will have a critical eye on this movie. My hope is that lasts for about 5 minutes and the next thing I know the end credits are running and I was just too absorbed in the adventure and story to fold my arms, frown and point out all the things I think I hate. Desperate would have been five Indy sequels in the last twenty years. Instead we have 1 only because they finally found a script worthy. Yes, you could argue that Ford needs a hit, but not even he could force Speilberg to make a movie he didn't want to make with a script he didn't want to shoot. At the end of the day, a new Indy movie is coming in a few months and I can't fuckin wait. If it's indeed in the same tone as Raiders ... damn that would be even better. By the way, the mocking is making you come off as even more of a douche. At least stick to your attempts at intelligent discussion.

    by jones1899

    Totally agree. I can't think of a worse way to do this movie than to forget about Indy's human qualities. Without them he's just another action hero. It's his smarts and determination (and a bit of luck) that help him succeed when he does. Ok another thing that could have ruined this movie was a young child playing his son (like 7 or 8) or a black daughter who takes gymnastics and therefore can swing around and kick a raptor through a window to save the day. Come on Spielberg - JP2 is the only reason I have to ever think this movie my not be great.

    by The Brain Machine

    The movie ain't out yet. So far it all sounds awesome to me. I think we have the best possible lineup of summer movies in a long time... probably since 1989 actually. <br> <br> Ford looks like freakin' Indiana Jones, and whoever bitches about his age and costume needs to realize that we're all going to get older some day - and this movie is about an older Indiana Jones... duh. If Indy didn't wear the Indiana Jones costume, there would be even more bitching. <br> <br> And why so much Shia hate on here, I just don't see where that comes from, I can't say I've ever seen him be horrible in a movie - in fact I think he elevated Transformers, and Disturbia. His work in Holes and The Greates Game Ever Played was really good. It comes across as though a lot of Internet Fanboys are just jealous of Shia who gotta complatin about something. Too much wasted negative energy, guys. <br> <br> The original Indy Trillogy will always be one of the greatest in film history and with the talent behind this one, my expectations are high. So far I haven't seen or heard anything to expect this movie to suck as so many people seem to fear. <br> <br> Let's just make up out minds when the movie comes out - I for one can not wait. I would fork out my $10 just to see Indy and Marion sitting down for dinner together 20 years later!

    Trailer info.

    by Atticus Finch

    While previously rumored that the Indy IV teaser trailer was going to be attached to Beowulf, reports have been trickling in that it hasn’t been seen anywhere. So what gives? My source tells me that at the midnight hour Spielberg decided he didn’t like the teaser in its present form and the studio agreed and pulled the teaser. Another little bird told me that some trailers had even been delivered to theaters and were slated to play, but Paramount called up (and in some cases showed up) at the theaters that received the teaser and had them removed. (They were released under random names) So does this mean we won’t be seeing a teaser in theaters before November ends? Sadly, yes. Paramount wants to attach this to the biggest picture possible and since Beowulf is their “Holiday Tentpole”. Paramount’s only other major release before the end of the year is Sweeney Todd (Dec. 21st)…which is rated R and Spielberg wants to avoid releasing the trailer with anything rated higher than PG-13. The same bird told me that Paramount really, really wants to release the teaser before 2008 and would be willing to pay another studio to release the Indy teaser with one of their Tentpole pics. Specifically, Paramount is talking very seriously with Disney, who is releasing National Treasure: Book of Secrets (same day as Sweeney Todd), about having the teaser debut with their film…which is appropriate no?…and then a week or so later Paramount would start showing it in front of Sweeney Todd. Again, Paramount really wants to get this out as soon as possible and as such they are also talking to Warner Brothers about releasing the teaser with the Will Smith thriller, I Am Legend on Dec. 14th. Granted, this is all dependent upon Spielberg being happy with the teaser and if he isn’t…well, we may not see it until J.J. Abrams’ Cloverfield (Jan. 18th).

    by The Devilled Backscribe

    The holster's darker and narrower than usual. The whip is clearly not the same David Morgan model used in the first three movies (note the darker tone accents, and the blockier end cap).

    by nooneimportant "One of the things that Spielberg has gone on record as saying is that most of the special effects in the film are practical. Now that appears to be true. The aliens in the film are puppets. There are three of them, seated on thrones in The Kingdom (an Aztec structure that turns out to be a spaceship). And, guess what? They bare a striking resemblance to the little naked bald headed midgets that were seen running around at the end of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. They are indeed supposed to be the ascendants of the Extraterrestrials seen in that film. They are related. Though the film doesn't come right out and say that. A lot of kids haven't even seen Close Encounters. They aren't going to get the joke."

    by JiveTalker

    I think Shia's a good actor- great, even, in things like A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints- so I have no problem whatsoever with him being in KOCS (insert clever homoerotic pun here). I just hope that the series ends with #4. LIke others I worry that with Shia's casting they're trying to set up a passing of the torch so that the industrial DreamWorks sausage machine can crank out an endless stream of guaranteed-to-be-mediocre-sequels with Indy Jr. at the helm. It's a no-brainer that those would be shite. But depending on how KOCS does, I wouldn't put it past The Berg or GL or any of those guys to keep on milking that cow, as long as they think cash will come out. Let's hope for the sake of the series that they have the restraint to end it heres. Plus isn't Shia already doing sequels and/or prequels to Transformers and Y The Last Man? The poor kid really doesn't need to take on THREE major blockbuster fantasy/action trilogies, it's a little redundant.

  • Nov. 27, 2007, 9:04 p.m. CST

    a little clarity regarding "cashing in" . . .

    by systemsbroom

    I don't think that anyone really believes that Spielberg, Lucas, Ford, or any other person attached to this project is or ought to be working without reference to money. However, there is a difference between working hard to make a quality movie with the idea in mind that "quality movies make lots of money," and working just hard enough to get a franchise movie onscreen with the idea in mind that "whatever we do, nostalgia and brand identity will ensure this makes lots of money." My guess is that's the distinction that some people are thinking of.

  • Nov. 27, 2007, 9:16 p.m. CST

    Yeah systemsbroom, and it's bullshit

    by I Dunno

    It's easy to shout "cash grab" because it's a sequel to a big franchise but other than that, no one has any real concrete reason for saying that. They took nearly a decade to find a script. I think that alone proves the "cash grab" bullshit as false.

    Oh, I'm not taking an opinion one way or the other on that (although your logic is the same as that I tend to think about). I just felt that the discussion was getting bogged down by arguments that the phrases "cashing in" or "cash grab" were meaningless because filmmakers don't work for free. That said, my sense is that this movie won't be all that great, simply because Spielberg and Co. aren't the people they were 20 years ago, and neither are we. Could be wrong, though.

    Indy's clothes were probably already 15 years outdated in Raiders and Temple... Get over it - that is indiana Jones' costume, man. If he were wearing Shia's costume then I'd be worried. I dn't see nipples on the jacket, or flames on the whip. <br> <br> Indy's back, man! Give the hate a rest. I don't give a shit if it's a cash grab, The man in the hat is back. <br> <br> Spielberg, Ford and Lucas are having fun again - that is something we should all look forward to. When these guys are ON, there is no stopping them. <br> <br> The bottom line is, if the SW prequels hadn't dissapointed so many, there wouldn't be all the hate coming out for this movie. I am very optimistic, and will leave an open mind till May 22nd, when I'll be there like all of y'all. And you know it!

Yes, it has a fan base, but many are jaded, cynical jerks and not too trustful of Ford or Lucas. The film is going to be great because they ARE MAKING A GREAT FILM. Based on what, you ask? Every pic, webdoc, and interview seen. So far, I trust the Beard, the Berg, the Bad-ass, and yes, even the Beef. As mentioned, he was GREAT in A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints and The Greatest Game Ever Played. And he was pretty good in Disturbia and Transformers. He'll do fine. But I agree, no more sequels and no new series starring Shia. Let Ford make this his last film, have his career end in triumph and we'll call it good.

    Pant waste height measurement

    by hamster_factor

    The high pants struck me immediately as making him look even older - but then again, i think this was actually a valid style in the 50s. If you look at old movies you will see this all the time. Also, african safari adventure dudes of the kind that Indy is inspired by, always had awkward high beige pants like this. In the end I guess it was a choice between: show Indy with a gut or raise the pants

    My Thoughts...Like you Really Care

    by redfist

    OK, Harrison Ford is THE MAN. Talk shit about him being 123 if you may, but that is a man's man. Ford gives it 100% in everything he does. I watched Air Force One this week and he and Gary Oldman were really kicking the shit out each other in that movie. I heard a story that in Firewall, Ford told the actor playing the bad guy to "Really FOOKING HIT ME, it looks like shit unless it real". A 60 year old guy telling a 20something guy to slug him. As far as the pants being high...that was the fashion. Before Limp Bizkit told you it was cool to show your ass (where are they asshats now anyway). As for Shia, as long as he is not just the wacky side kick, with a WTF expression 90% of the movie and doesn't say "NO TIME FOR LOVE DR. JONES" he has my vote, love the greeser look.

    Ford's a classic movie star. I want to see an older, hardened Indy as that makes him seem more real, more dimensional. We saw him last time playing second fiddle to his dad and now he's thrust into the senior role. I notice no one complained Connery "looks old" in THE LAST CRUSADE. I hope this Indy looks ready to lead THE WILD BUNCH. The shot of him with the whip and gun looks like a guy you don't want to mess with, just like Pike.

    re "last crusade"

    by DocPazuzu

    It wasn't meant to imply that all of Indy's adventures are "crusades" and that TLC was, in fact, his "last" crusade. The title refers to the Christian knights, the medieval hunt for the Grail, the Holy Land and all that rubbish. The Jones's adventure was, in that context, the last "crusade". It does in no way, however, imply that it marked an end to the series. <p> Riding off into the sunset is another matter, of course. I prefer to think of it as the end of the Indy-in-his-prime trilogy, and hope that KOTCS is part one of an older Indy trilogy.

  • Nov. 28, 2007, 10:25 a.m. CST

    ....uh, Sorry DarkHawke.

    by Rando Calrisian

    While I agree that Cameron has made a couple of the greatest sequels of all time (Aliens and T2), to say that the second two Indy films are worse than The Mummy or The Matrix sequels probably isn't going to win any points here. <br> <br> I just find it hard to believe that you would catergorize a new Indiana Jones film - the first true adventure film by Spielberg in nearly 20 years is not worhty of your $10 ticket. Not even worthy of a DVD rental. This is Spielberg, Lucas and Ford - who directed, produced, and starred in nearly 20 of the top 100 all time box office leaders of all time. The Mummy was a pale shadow of Indiana Jones, and one of the most disapointing films I have ever seen in a theater - it's sequel was even more pathetic. I guess we can at least agree that The Rocketeer was a pretty bad-ass movie, and came the closest to capturing the spirit of Indiana Jones. But that is the point - without Indiana Jones, those movies would never have existed. <br> <br> I myself was disapointed with the SW prequels (as most were), I find The Phantom Menace nearly impossible to watch now, but if you think Revenge of the Sith is worse than that movie, we obviously don't agree on what makes a good movie. I don't automatically give Lucas, Ford, OR Spielberg a pass on everything, but together, they have never let ME down as a popcorn munching movie goer. These guys make the movies that defined The Movies from 1974 - 1990, and they are having fun again. Shouldn't that be worth checking out? <br> <br> I saw Raiders of the Lost ark in the theater back in 1981 and it changed my life - it is my all time favorite movie, and I loved the sequels as well. I will be there with my $10, and I'll probably be there the next day with another $10. And I will have a good time! I'm already sold on this movie, and until I see it, I will remain positive - that's all.

Sure, the uncut is just a handful of "fucks" and a few bloody squibs more than the theatrical, but I dug it. I came to realize that I didn't dislike Len Wiseman; rather, I envy him because he did a pretty okay job with the flick. Is it the best Die Hard? No. Top two? Debatable. But I liked it.

    by finky089

    I've been looking forward to this film for a long time, despite initial reactions when I thought it was prehaps "too late" for another true Indy film. Despite little things and even Shia's inclusion in this film, I'm excited for it. <p> But while listening to my Raiders score last night I started thinking about when I'll be sitting int he theaters watching KOCS and listening to the "Raiders March" come on with the End titles and realizing this could be the last Indy film. It makes me almost want SS & GL to do another Indy film. No doubt the box office from this one will be encouraging to make another, but it would taint the name of Indiana Jones to have a "spin off" movie where Harrison wasn't the star. Nothing against Shia, but I don't thin I really want to see a spin off series starring him. <p> Can't wait for May '08!

    ...but..without using the terms "cashing in" or "cash grab", the inclusion of a teenage sidekick, whether he is Indy's son or what have you, seems to smell of a calculated attempt to bring in the under-20 audience that is so important for multiple viewings, and who would have only seen any of the series on TV. Much as a lot of people bitched about Die Hard getting watered down to a PG13 rating to bring in the widest possible audience. Yes, movies are an investment produced to create profit, and it is in the studios and producers best interest to maximize profit. I've felt that Shia Lebeouf's "sidekick" character was shoehorned into Considine (sp) and I Robot, for no valid reason, and brought nothing to those films. I fully trust Spielberg, and Ford. Somewhat trust Lucas, and so-so on LeBeouf. I will be there on opening weekend as a fan of the series, and hope to blown away. I just have these concerns. And just to show you how much I admire Spielberg, I even liked War Of The Worlds, despite the "its too bad half of the world was destroyed, because Tom Cruise learned to become a better father" theme.

    My theory is that over the past 18 years the principal talent has been preoccupied to get together. Spielberg directing Schindler and Ryan and getting Dreamworks off the ground: Lucas with the prequels, and Ford...I don't know, practicing a Russian accent..and the matter of getting a script that everyone accepted. Its not like Joel Silver getting together with Jon Turteltaub to make a movie with Nicholas Cage...I don't have a problem with the movie being made, being made now, or whatever...I just have a problem with the BEEF.

    Why do another Indiana movie...?

    by idahomer

    The business of sequels is fairly new, outside of James Bond. Usually one was done after an unexpected hit, and they rarely picked up any of the storyline from the first. Then directors started leaving the door open at the end, and finally trilogies came along. But when Raiders was done, I don't think they ever dreamed it would be as big as it was, or planned on making more.<p> In fact, Ford was so sick of Star Wars the only way they got him back for the third was to give him Raiders. By then, his star was burning hot and he had a great run of movies, so doing a second and a third Indy movie was no big deal. The guy did a movie a year from 1977 to 2000, most of them successful.<p> So he passes 60, looks around, and realizes "Hey, of all the roles I've played, which one could I still play and be believable? Maybe I will return Steven's call."<p> Movies are made for ego and money. No problem there. But what makes them special sometimes is when those involved have a real love for the project. I think all these guys do.<p> I'm really hoping they take it from the angle that Indy HAS NOT been on adventures for years. He has settled into just the teaching and is pulled back into it. I'd love to see him smack himself in the lip with the whip the first time after not having used it.<p> I really hope they pull this off because it has such potential. I hope they all get filthy richer because it's a great 2 hour ride.

    First of all, it's "Kasdan" and it's spelled "vengeance". Second, Boam was just one of many writers assigned to Crusade, one of them also being Menno Meyjes who co-wrote Empire of the Sun for Spielberg. The result was an amazing final chapter (at the time) for one of the greatest ACTION ADVENTURE movies of all time, so why wouldnt the Berg hire an action writer to throw around ideas? Is Crusade perfect? not really, but it works. You don't have to like it, it wasnt made specially for you. Lastly, this talk back is to celebrate the return of an iconic character and movie that has made us all fans, so in case you havent gotten the hint, we dont give a fuck about your opinions. -hugs and kisses, - The Ghost of Marcus Brody

    People, don't get caught up on Indy's clothes

    by finky089

    if he WASN'T wearing his recognized "Indy outfit" we'd all be complaining about it. <p> In fact, it makes sense to me that he'd still wear pretty much the same thing for the same adventurous purposes. <p> Like Orcus said, perhaps he hasn't been adventuring for a while til Mutt shows up and he just pulled these digs out of mothballs. <p> Maybe he's been adventuring off and on with decreasing frequency in the last 20 years since Last Crusade. Who knows. Maybe we'll find out in the movie. But, that kind of shirt, that fedora, that jacket - these are Indy's work clothes. Somebody said this above and it makes alot of sense why "he'd still wear the same thing" 20 years later. <p> And if you don't buy that and still have a problem with him being inthe same clothes, then my condolences. If this disappoints you, be prepared to stay home or see something else next May, because that should be the least of your concerns (if any) about KOCS.

    Favorite 3 non-sci-fi Harrison Ford movies...

    by rbatty024

    1) Witness, 2) Mosquito Cost, and 3) Clear and Present Danger. I know I've repeated the favorites of others, but he only had fifteen years of solid movies under his belt. Ford may not be Ian Holm, but he used to push himself as an actor. Watch Mosquito Coast and tell me you don't forget its Ford fifteen minutes into that film. Now that I think about it, Witness? Mosquito Coast?, Ford needs to ditch Spielberg and team up with Peter Weir again. Maybe he'll have a role for him in Master and Commander 2: Say My Name Bitch!?

    Indy's Outfit in fhe first movie was a filthied up NEW SUIT!

    by NoDiggity

    What did Indy pack for his trip? His whip and his gun. What was he wearing on the plane ride? A crisp, clean, NEW suit and hat! What was he wearing the rest of the movie? That same suit, all filthy and crappy. That hat of his is a filthy version of the new one he was wearing. Oh, and he LOSES that hat when he hitches a ride on the submarine, (at least, he leaves it aboard Katanga's vessel, and there's no reason to believe Katanga went out of his way to give it back). So Indy's outfit is basically the leather jacket and the whip, and the remains of whatever nice clothes he started out with, including whatever nice hat happened to be in fashion. The nostalgia for the first film is strangling this last film ... now we have to look at Indy wearing some mothballed looking leather jacket and hat, as if the real Indy would have held onto those old pieces of shit instead of getting newer duds. And you know what I hate about that last picture, with Shia? The cobwebs on Indy's hat, as if to say "Yes, this is an Indiana Jones movie, because there were cobwebs in that first cave Indy went into in the first movie!" Note how Shia's perfect coif is totally spiderweb free. Let's pray there isn't a cannibalistic scene where Indy brushes tarantulas off of Shia's back (though a cannibalistic scene where Shia gets skewered by sharpened sticks immediately after would be welcome).

    In the first movie, Indy's Leather Jacket looked NEW.

    by NoDiggity

    But we were given the idea that he had gone on adventures before. Maybe he throws away old leather jackets and buys new ones, you know? Like he left his old hat behind in the first movie, and was wearing a brand new one at the end with Marion!

You haven't read the script. You haven't seen anything related to its production. And more importantly, you haven't watched the fucking thing.<br><br>Ford got this project started in 1994 when he became nostalgic for the character. You can find drafts online dated all the way back then. Ford, Spielberg's, and even Lucas's careers couldn't have been better. The timing was never right.<br><br>Everything we've heard has made it sound like Ford, Spielberg and Lucas wanted to revisit Indy out of pure nostalgia. It's not like they've suddenly decided to make one in the last year or two. This has been in development for OVER A DECADE -- by no means an EASY cash-grab.<br><br>So again, please shut the fuck up.

    Steven's last few fantasy-movies have not had the same magic. Casting Transformer-boy is further indication IMO that he has contracted Oliverstonitis, i.e. casting the most obvious, hip "of the moment" stars in your films, regardless of weather they are right for the part or not. Like a scene THE PLAYER only worse. Examples: Need an older actor to play Nixon. OF COURSE! Anthony Hopkins! Need a boy for my robot-boy movie. OF COURSE! Haley Joel Osment! Back in the day it was Henry Thomas now it 's the "it-boy" or girl fucking Dakota Fucking Fanning etc. Alexander the Great = Colin Farrel etc. etc. the list goes on...Oliverstoneitis, or Theplayeritis...whatever, Spielbergs got it. Un-inspired casting usually leads to un-inspired movies, un-inspired movies... lead to suffering. I really hope I'm wrong here though.

    by NoDiggity

    It's just what was told to us in the very first movie we fell in love with. Stupid sequels like Temple of Doom got all hung up on the iconography of the first film, and started fetishizing the details of Indy's outfit, like the Hat, but they weren't as good movies, were they, as the first one, which tried to make Indy look like a real character, who didn't fetishize his own clothing the way movie watchers would, who wore new hats to filthiness, lost them, bought new ones, wore them to filthiness. You know, like a real human being. That's what made the first movie so good, made us believe in Indiana Jones. Because it took the trouble to show him as a real human being, not a cartoon who was all about his Hat, Whip, and Jacket. And that's the point about these new pics. They have lost the real Indy and are just carefully applying the Hat, Jacket, Whip, Cobwebs, and god know what else cannibalized from the previous films to make sure they are serving up a Formula Indy Movie. Not a stirring, convincing movie, but regurgitated Pap. At least, that's what Picture Number 3 indicates, to me. Indy has fetishized his old costume and kept shitty, old, decrepit versions of his old costume, which the original Indy wouldn't have bothered to do. Because the original Indy seemed Real. This Indy seems like a self-conscious fake version of himself.

    is this Ain't it Cool News or a Project Runway website. Sheesh. What action film doesn't have its discontinuities. Besides, if he wasn't wearing the outfit people would be complaining a whole hell of a lot more. He can't wear the professor suit out into the jungle, can he?

    Indy's Packing

    by NoDiggity <br><br> If you look at that pic of Indy's trunk, he's thrown the jacket, whip, and gun into his trunk. No fucking "Indy" hat. Why? Because he's got a NEW one that he's going to wear until it gets filthy and "Indyish", and we see him wearing that new one on the plane.

    by Jaws Wayne

    Buddy, I can't see how any Indiana fan could not look forward to his return to the big screen. You don't have a clue how much fun the new movie will be, I'm thrilled we're finally gonna see Harrison Indy back in action. (Me and most of the rest of the world). I bet all involved will try to make it as good and fun as possible. You sound like MoM's twin-brother. Are you ?

    Jarv, I don't understand your question.

    by NoDiggity

    I'm going to too-great lengths to point out that Temple of Doom's overfocus on Indy's hat as a precious object to him is silly when, in Raiders, he's on his third hat by the end of the film, and has lost his jacket and whip. A good sequal would be faithful to THAT Indy, not to the Hat, Jacket, and Whip, which are superficial.

    by just pillow talk

    I can't believe you have hat issues. <p>Maybe, if we're lucky, we'll see him in the movie go into a store and buy a brand-spanking new hat! Because that's the REAL to move on to a new hat in a blink of an eye! Maybe those pics above are of the "body-snatched" Indy!

  • Nov. 29, 2007, 8 a.m. CST


    by DocPazuzu

    You're really edging into ringwearer9 territory with this shit. Just because the accessories weren't "fetishized" in Raiders doesn't mean they were any less an integral part of Jones's adventurer persona in that film. So Spielberg had a bit of fun with our familiarity with the character in subsequent outings - so fucking what? Is this all you've got?

  • Nov. 29, 2007, 8:35 a.m. CST

    Doc, Whatever the film will ultimately be remains to be seen.

    by NoDiggity

    We've only got hints now. What I'd like to see is something true to the original film's feel. Tongue in cheek "homages" to the original film, "having fun" as you put it, isn't going to be that. Was the original film making fun of itself? That's why it was such a hit, because it took itself seriously enough to encourage "suspension of disbelief" in the story. As for "all I've got" .... come on, it's early in the rumor/leak stage of the game. Plenty more pics, plenty more leaks, lots to look at and pour over. You want more? Hey, if I don't supply you with ominous presentiments of dread, other people will. I didn't invent love for the original Raiders movie, nor did I invent dislike for the cheap sequels, nor suspicion that this is going to be another poor one.

    jesus, all that over Indy's fucking HAT??!

    by finky089

    The hat, jacket, etc is his "uniform". It's what he wears in general, and it's not "realistic" (NoDiggity) that an adventurer like Indy would only ever have one of them. Like others said, he would certainly replace pieces as they were lost and in that time, it wouldn't have been unusual at all for a man to have more than one fedora. <p> And if you want to get nitpicky, you don't know how many hats Indy COULD have packed because we never see him close the suitcase and march directly onto the pier to board the plane. He could have continued packing. And Katanga was a friend of Sallah's so it's not beyond believable that he could have returned Jones' stuff to him eventually. As for Indy's hat looking "new" at the start of Raiders - so what? Under the presumption the world famous archaeologist adventurer loses stuff during his travels, it could have been a newly replaced hat. <p> What's ridiculous is that I even felt the need to add to this dialogue....

    picture removal

    by mrbong

    as far as i could see the pictures were three images of Harrison Ford in the (ahem) "classic" Indy clothing. one pic showed Indy with another actor who is in the film, and using a conventional torch rather than a bone with a rag wrapped around it, soaked in paraffin and lit with a cigarette lighter that was always in the possession of a man that did not smoke. what the fuck is the secrecy about? i mean, they are standard, non-give away and not really anything secret images. if that's their attitude with mildly interesting but not at all revealing pictures, i mean, will they even let anyone in to the theatre to see the film?

    which means he's probably got enough problems in life as it is. <p> Besides, I don't care if he, or anyone else for that matter, voices that sort of stuff. That's what TBs are for (that and harping on Harrison's outrageous love of HAM!) But it's funny to me that NoDiggity would look at the hat thing so singularly and that it would erupt so much negativity. Come on, it's Indy's friggin fedora. That's what he wears. period. Don't worry about where he gets it from and when. Indy takes care of that part.

  • Nov. 29, 2007, 12:16 p.m. CST

    only ET would also be wearing a leather jacket like Mutt's and it would say "E.T." on the left shoulder. And there's be pieces of a small boat in the pit they are looking down into and just visible on a plank it would say "Orca". And then a totally blue George Lucas would walk into the scene and announce he's the alien that started life on our planet and his name is Baron Whatever (as seen in ROTS). <p> I gotta get back to work.

    by skimn

    to bankruptcy twice before, I find it hard to believe that their coffers are that low. Look at the domestic box office for 6...count em 6 films. Bee Movie, 111 million and counting, Blades Of Glory 118 mil, Disturbia 80 mil, Norbit 95 mil, Shrek The 3rd 320 mil, Transformers 319 mil. Thats over 1 billion domestic for six films, not counting overseas and video. Even if Dreamworks just gets a portion of that, its gravy. And I only see Paramount and Lucasfilm attached to Indy 4, no mention of Dreamworks on the official site, and no mention of it on Dreamwork's roster of 2008 releases.

    Catch Me If You Can and Minority Report are top notch. I think what bothers you the most is that he is consciously changing his style. If he was still making the same kinds of films he was in the eighties I would be bored to tears with Spielberg. Even The Terminal, which was a complete failure, was at least interesting. It was a strange attempt at confronting America post-9/11 with the film style of the forties. Not surprisingly it fell apart, but like I said at least it was interesting.

    Jarv, I think I'm on to something.

    by DocPazuzu

    Whenever we get too tired of M-O-M's horseshit, all we have to do is ask him where he's from and BAMF! He's gone. <p> Good call on SPR, but Minority Report was horrendous for numerous reasons, not least of which being an unforgivably stupid and hole-ridden story masquerading as smart SF. I don't mind howling lapses in logic in movies, but I prefer them in enjoyable schlock, not movies pretending to be more clever than they actually are.

    Not only that, but after the ludicrous plot device of removing eyes and changing identity, what's the first thing he does upon entering the police station? The first person he comes across he walks up to and says "hey, it's me!" <p> Don't even get me started on Colin Farrell's awful performance.

    The reason Indy's pants are so clean

    and not wrinkled is, they're Haggar permanent press pants. That, and the Crystal Skull Aliens gave him a magic potion to make his laundry come out wrinkle-free and smelling like springtime in a meadow.

    M-O-M, while I disagree totally on The Last Crusade...

    by rbatty024

    I do think there's something to be said about whether or not we want Spielberg to go back to his roots. I think the people who malign Spielberg's later output are nostalgic for the Spielberg of old and aren't willing to listen to anything he has to say since the late nineties, included attempts to return to the eighties. I think he has done a great job changing his style from film to film and while he's had some bumps in the road (The Terminal) I would rather him put out some interesting movies and risk failure rather than just play it safe. I think of Indy4 as Spielberg going back one last time to see if he still has it, that sense of wonder and adventure from the eighties. It's been a long time since we've seen that Spielberg (Jurassic Park, I think) but I sure would like to see him try.

    Hello again. I'm not saying I even come close to understanding Hollywood accounting (I'm sure Peter Jackson would concur). I just wanted to challenge your assertion that Indy 4 is calculated to help Dreamworks, when Dreamworks is not attached to it beyond Spielberg's involvement.

    Orcus, also in summer 1982...

    by Abominable Snowcone

    We had Rocky III, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and Friday the 13th III (with Jason's first appearance in a hockey mask). Also, the greatest movie of all time--Megaforce--hit screens in June of that summer. First Blood was also a 1982 film, but not until October. Creepshow was released in the US in November '82. There have been great summers of movies, but it's hard to top the number of good (or at least memorable) films from that year. I was 11 years old.

    RE: Dreamworks

    by Mr. Nice Gaius

    Unless the Dreamworks logo or something along the lines of "In Association with Dreamworks..." shows up in the opening credits, then they've got nothing to do with this film. (I have little doubt that we will see the "LucasFilm" logo and the Paramount mountain.) And to claim that this film is a cash grab for Dreamworks via Paramount is utter speculation. The proof will be in the contracts.

  • Nov. 30, 2007, 12:55 p.m. CST

    by Mr. Nice Gaius've had some pretty fair questions put to you in this (and other) Talkbacks. I don't know why you just don't stand up for yourself and answer them. It seems simple enough.<P>And COMMANDO? Really?!

    Right there with you on Munich, it's Spielberg's second masterpiece after Jaws. Have you noticed that his "adult" phase seemed to start with his collaboration with Janusz Kaminski?

    Memories, SPR and MUNICH are not "adult"

    by NoDiggity

    The "Good Deeds biting you in the Ass" theme isn't adult. In fact, it's an argument against liberalism, leading down the path to "necessary" brutality. It's an argument in which democracy, decency, dies. Is this what you admire in SPR and Munich? Certainly SPR promotes that argument, once when the German soldier they let go returns to shoot the nice Tom Hanks, but also, cannibalistially, repeating it when Sgt. Upham, who let the German go, freezes in fear on the steps while a German soldier stabs the JEWISH soldier to death, turning it into another Holocaust allegory. As for Munich, even though it looks like the writer of the screenplay was very much AGAINST assassination teams, and felt that violence begat violence, the film was shot in such a way that it seemed to forgive the Mossad assassination team everything. You had Raiders adventure music playing over the introduction to the conference with Golda Meier at the beginning, every Palestinian, no matter how heartfelt his lines, was played by someone unappealing. If the Spymaster was supposed to be an evil to be rejected at the end, then Spielberg went out of his way to make sure he was played like a loving dad, so the rejection later would play like ingratitude. Any rational consideration of the effect of condoning brutal solutions to problems, on the people who condone it's uses, is softened by cinematic tricks that tell us it's all Indiana Jones vs. the Nazis again. It's as childish as it ever was, except now it's supporting real world practices of torture and extra-legal murder. But when God is on your side, it's not really torture and murder, is it.

  • Nov. 30, 2007, 11:29 p.m. CST

    NoDiggity, I'm sorry but I think the fact that there was...

    by rbatty024

    plenty of outrage from the Jewish/Isreali community about the film is plenty of evidence that the movie is more complex than you make it out to be.

    rbatty, just because stupid people are "outraged" ...

    by NoDiggity

    ... doesn't mean that the director wasn't trying to undermine the more liberal message of the screenwriter. It just means that there are plenty right wing bigots in the Jewish community who didn't want the anti-Mossad message even mentioned. I suppose we have to give Spielberg credit for allowing it air, even if he did try to undermine it in the way he presented it. I just suspect his aim was to present it and undermine it.

    Jones is right. Go fuck yourselves if you think you'd be able to do any better. Harrison will always kick ass. And as for Shia being a bad actor, you can go fuck yourself again. Why do you think he's taking off in hollywood??? He sure as hell didn't get there for any other reason than being a good actor. He is where he is because he deserves to be. He's quickly becoming one of my favorite actors and that says alot seeing as Chritopher Walken is my goddamn hero. You smug assholes piss me off. And happen to think his hair is sexy... the man is fine, you're just mad cause you're not. I'm only 2 years older than him... I'd definately get with him. Go watch A guide trys and tell me he's not a phenominal actor. Pricks.
