Another new Indy 4 photo! Blanchett looks pissed!

Published at: Jan. 31, 2008, 3:06 p.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'm about to run to a flick at the Santa Barbara FF, but I saw this hit the KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL fan-run myspace page and figured I'd share it with you good folks. Ford looks like ea beat down Indiana Jones, the commies look more Nazi-like than I expected (yay) and Blanchett just looks mean. Love the hair. Looks to be a photo from an upcoming magazine spread on Indy 4. With only a few months until release I'm betting we start seeing some crazy market-flooding advertisement. Enjoy!

    Is that a picture of a picture of a picture?

    by DKT

    It seems like Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett aren't actually in the same dimension. Maybe it's just the way the photo looks from this generation. And yeah, they've got US military duds. Is this some secret joint mission the US and Soviets are in on? If they're in the same picture, that is.

    Old and Beat Down

    by Larry of Arabia

    That's the only way to show Indy. He is old. He apparently has been beat down (a tradition hailing back to Raiders, where he *spoiler* lost to the Nazis if you recall God ended up beating them with Indy tied to a pole *end spolier*). This makes me happy.

    by jones1899

    FUCK. Some of you act like you are the first to fuckin notice that a 65 year old dude looks old. No shit. The great thing about Indy is that the character is HUMAN. He gets hurt, he's a bit clumsy at times and yes he gets old. I'd be pissed if they tried to hide his age. His character has progressed in each of the previous movies and he will in KOTCS as well. This is as it should be. I think its badass to have a seasoned ol adventurer on the big screen. Its been a while and Lord knows the genre can use a boost. Oh yeah and Shia's a talented kid, Speilberg doesn't make bad movies (besides Lost World) and the Ravenwoods are back. Let's just hope the tone has a bit of Raiders in it too.

    by moondoggy2u

    He doesn't look like a man in his mid fifties, unless, that is, youre talking about a guy who's been smoking and drinking pretty hard. The guy looks like he's in his mid sixties--end of story. Sheeesh, I must be getting old. <p>As for Indy being in his sixties, I dunno, I'm not sure I'm comfortable with it, either. I understand most people feel the character is allowed to be old and worn, but the films were all released within a relatively short time span and established his character as a 40-something who isn't quite over the hill, but surely on the edge. Now, twenty years later, the character is being established as this 60-something father, so I think its all right for people like me to think its a little weird. Again, this whole film just has that tacked-on feeling, and deservedly so, I think.

    by Zardoz

    I really can't make out what patch is on his shoulder, but to me the uniforms looks more Russian, than U.S. (and one patch looks like a red Lenin star patch, to me) Also, it makes more sense to me since Cate's character is a Russkie. So, either it's U.S. soldiers rescuing Indy, or Russian soldiers surrounding him while Cate gets ready to skewer him...

    If this were the new chapter, or if there had been a series of films between crusades and this one, than nobody would be complaining. Don't get me wrong I cannot wait to see this movie, either, but the fact remains that this movie is basically Indiana Jones Rides Again.

Hell, the same antics go on today as they did in the eighties--just look at that poisoning nonsense that was going on a year or two ago, which was typical KGB assassination. <p>As for the action I saw--not much. I was the sole white guy in a unit that figured affirmative action was more necessary than quality, so our unit was a joke, but then, that was pretty common for artillery back then.

    are you from germany, travis?

    travis, a quick synopsis

    by moondoggy2u

    I was on the second floor, two guys came up behind and two from around the corner. I knew them and knew exactly what was going to happen so I just whipped out old trusty and beaned the two in front with the baton, threw one down the flight of stairs, and when the other guy, who had some serious weight on me, tried to do the same thing, I just helled on and jumped and we both took a tumble. After that I was on him and it wasn't pretty, I can tell you that.

How out of touch is that?

    Moondog- Jack Reacher

    by finky089

    Jack Reacher is the main character in a series of books by Lee Child. Reacher's (at least in the first 5 or 6 books) an ex-Army MP recently out of the service who sorta wanders the US, seeing the sites etc, since he was a military brat who grew up pretty much everywhere but the US, so he wants to see his own country. <p> But in each book he finds himself involved in somebody else's dastardly plans and has to save the day, usually "getting the girl" in the process. Reacher employs his skills as a military investigator to unravel the antagonists' plans, which usually invovles a good plot twist and lots of Reacher using his military training to bust a few skulls, etc. <p> They're pretty good, fast reads. By all means, check out a copy of Killing Floor -the first novel sometime.

  • Jan. 31, 2008, 7:43 p.m. CST

    Also, I'm Irish.

    by moondoggy2u

    Maybe that explains a few things?

  • Jan. 31, 2008, 7:45 p.m. CST

    Ah, googling him works better than me trying to explain

    by finky089

    I never heard of Lee Child until about two years ago when my friend lent me Killing Floor. I was hooked after that.

    By the way, on the subject of Mitch Rapp books

    by moondoggy2u

    It always irks me that the guy is made out to be some super soldier who is capable of taking out Navy Seals at the drop of a hat, and all it seems he's had is a crash course in various boot camps (a few weeks here, a few weeks there). Let me be frank, in real life, a seal would reduce the guy to lawn mulch. Those guys are TOUGH.

  • Jan. 31, 2008, 7:52 p.m. CST

    Caruso, I'm the same way.

    by moondoggy2u

    I'm very, very laid back, but I just tend to pull the old "there's trouble over there! Go help!" routine, and, as you can imagine, its made my life eventful. Why, just a year and a half ago, a man intentionally hit me with his car ;)

    the guy was stalking/instigating a scene with this girl at our school parking lot. I go out there, keep her away, and then he puts his car in gear, speeds up, and hits me head on. I was not a happy camper, lemme tell you! I had a sprained ankle for about a month and a half after that. If I ever get my hands on that guy...

    Rapp - I know what you mean

    by finky089

    I've read a few Vince Flynn books with Rapp, but I think the Reacher books are better (the earlier ones like Killing Floor, Tripwire, Running Blind are the best). The first Rapp one I read was Transfer of Power. A co-worker told me it was like Child's reacher novels, but it felt "cheaper". Don't get me wrong, Jack Reacher pulls off some pretty outlandish shit at times, but to me it always seems more plausible given the background Child has given him.

  • Jan. 31, 2008, 8:02 p.m. CST

    yeah, caruso, thats about me to a T

    by moondoggy2u

    I'm very laid back, and have a great sense of humor, if I do say so myself. I dont think I could even have hoped to become a teacher without my humor and attitude. But when I get into a fight, that fight has to be finished and right soon. Don't get me wrong, I'm not some super guy or anything like that, its just that I tend to be pretty durable (have yet to brake a bone in my life) and can take a few whacks, and my size and experience/training give me an edge, and I'm a lot faster than most people would think someone my size can be, so that helps out too.

Oh, I don't mind being informal, kids talking civilly without raising their hands and such, but obvious disobediance is something I don't brook. <p>As far as kids starting fights and such, I tend to break em' up pretty fast, much to the relief of our local security guard (who is in his mid sixties and with a belly as big as yogi bear's), but I have had a few kids seriously try to start a fight with me. Not many, but a few.

    by moondoggy2u

    Sure the books are full of shit. Hell, legally speaking, he can't actually say word one about anti-terrorist tactics without getting thrown into the slammer. But the fact remains, that given his background and the genre (fiction), his books are more believable than most. Now, were you to actually treat Marcinko as a real life person, there is no way on God's green earth could he get away with all that stuff and still be alive, let alone walking and holding cups. But so long as you treat it as fiction, as I do, then they aren't half bad.

    The other thing you have to do

    by moondoggy2u

    is to avoid the obvious age problem. Also, keep in mind that he isn't really writing those books. They're all ghost written and packaged with his name. The only thing that makes them nifty, in my opinion, is that they freely use his real-life background and GENERAL knowledge, ie non classified, of certain strategies and scenarios and incorporate that into the fictional plotting.

  • Jan. 31, 2008, 8:24 p.m. CST

    I never met him

    by moondoggy2u

    But I knew of him and started reading the books. Thank god it was only later that I actually saw the guy on video tape because lemme tell you, the voice and manerisms in my head were of a much nicer, more gruff sort of man. When he spoke the way he did, using the familiar syntax, he nonetheless had a lot of manerisms that struck me as just some new-england type asshole. Still, entertaining fiction, if I do say so myself.

  • Jan. 31, 2008, 8:26 p.m. CST

    But I'll tell you one thing

    by moondoggy2u

    asshole or no, that guy used to be in charge of seal team 6, which in my opinion, commands a lot of respect from me. He's obviously capable and tougher than any guy youre likely to meet in your life, but he is most deffinitely not very likeable, from what I have heard.

    by TheManBehindTheMask

    I saw Temple in theatre when I was 9 yo. And I just liked those over the top none stop action packed movie! Even at that age the "impossible-to-happen-musical sequence" made me smile when Willie finaly showed up in the small stage of the club (good cinematic humor). The beating heart on fire was amazing. Willie was a caracter that I loved to hate! I wanted so much to be a little older to follow Indy everywhere like Short Round did. I know this movie is a little too over the top and cartoonish for some people, but I prefere my Indy this way than the average humor and the almost funny dialog that runs all along Crusade, (and the irritating little music that Williams made that ruins a lot of action scenes). That said, Crusade is a good movie, I just prefer the others!

    I just rewatched TEMPLE and CRUSADE ...

    by NoDiggity

    And I was surprised that I liked Crusade better. Neither compare to Raiders, but Crusade lacked that ANNOYANCE factor. Temple was incredibly loud, jabbery, annoying, the music was random and all over the place. Crusade was essentially a remake of Raiders, but it was a reverent remake, largely, capturing the tone of the awesomeness of history, and replacing the Ark with the Grail, and repeating the big Fight with Nazis on moving vehicles of Raiders. So I have to eat my words, and say that Crusade is better than Temple, by far. (Only awful thing is the "young Indy" beginning, with the unnecessary origins of Indy's liking for Hat, Whip and Jacket). The actions scenes in both Temple and Crusade are retarded, though, compared to Raiders. Nice thing about both .... real sets, real photography, no CGI crap muddying everything up. Oh, and Kate Capshaw was hot in wet pantaloons.

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 9:22 a.m. CST

    CRUSADE was a letdown, lightweight, rushed

    by Spacesheik

    I am worried now that Frank Marshall stated that SKULL is 'closer in tone to CRUSADE' cause the latter was a lightweight, campy romp devoid of a decent villain, decent action scenes, and anti climactic. f you enjoy comical Nazis crashing their planes into tunnels, rat infested sewers burning up, the 'Junior!' shtick between Connery and Ford, Indy taking out three Nazis with one bullit, and a scaled down climax involving one armored and an old templar asking our heroes to the holy grail cup 'wisely' then I dont know what to tell you. My favorite was RAIDERS, the occult elements were great and the action was gritty and at times bloody (the Indy-thug fight in front of the plane) and the horse-vehicle chase, etc. TEMPLE OF DOOM had a memorable villain, was action-packed and dark, - its a much more replayable enjoyable flick than CRUSADE (which seemed like a smaller scaled, campier version than RAIDERS - although I enjoyed the River Phoenix opening). CRYSTAL SKULL is already 'locked' - the onyl thing missing is the John Williams score - lets hope Marshall was mistaken and the flick is closer to RAIDERS, but I have a feeling Spielberg enjoys his star-studded-lighthearted romps way more than the edgy flicks he used to make.

    to be as easy to root against as the Nazis were. Given that "the Bear is currently hibernating" (as someone said yesterday), it's not so acceptable now to look at them as the kind of nemesis that the Nazis are viewed as post WWI through WWII. <p> For some people, if the bad guys here (Soviets) remind them of the Nazis from the previous films, then, i guess, the theoru is that the film is reusing elements they liked fromthe original Indy films. <p> I don't know if that's really it, just my theory. Soviets make sense as a rival faction, but that's about as much as I care that they are in it.

    by finky089

    most of the time....or, so I hear. <p> Though with every badge, there comes a burden, so I know it can't always be Matrix and grapefruit soda. ;)

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 5:01 p.m. CST

    here's what i bet it is

    by occula

    the EXECS at mtv are of an indy age. that's why they would give it the time of day. i'm sure they know most of the viewers aren't old enough to drive, much less know about raiders, but i would bet you dollars to donuts the programming execs are like 'oh yes, indy 4, me loves!'

    doh! "pccula" - I hate that I refuse to proofread my posts

    Usually I don't care, but when it fucks with somebody's name it just doesn't seem as forgivable.

    tee hee heee

    by occula

    you are so right, finx. you see how i did that with your name? you like?<p>yes, being the boss is both a burden and a blessing. i am, however, the most insubordinate person i know, so i can never go back to working for the man again...i'm stuck with the rough road of running my own business. so, when i use the company card to buy grapefruit soda, i'm the one who gets dragged into the boss's office. *sigh*

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 5:04 p.m. CST

    it kinda looks like 'poo-cula'

    which is funny, coz it has 'poo' in it

    Actually I like it with the "x"

    by finky089

    I do believe self-discpline will be the death of our society. And, I'm really not helping because I think I've typed more on this website today than I have typed for work. <p> I'd like to chalk it up to being "friday" and all, but honestly, I spent a good portion of yeterday like this. Perhaps it's because I know my deadline is far enough out that I have time to cram at the last minute, I dunno. <p> Are you a one-woman shop? Do you make costumes for all kinds of productions ro primarily theater or movies/TV? (I'm from the finance world, thus my insight into it.)

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 5:11 p.m. CST

    anything with "poo" = usually funny

    "who-flung-poo"

    by occula

    remember that was the punchline from a joke in junior high?<p>i am sort of a one-woman shop - i have a crew that works off-and-on with me. i do costuming, sets, graphics, concept illustration and a host of other egotistical shit. since you're a finance guy, can you get me a bunch of money so i can shoot my own project? i promise to make you an associate producer! *wink wink*

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 5:42 p.m. CST

    poo-ccula, how egotistical!

    by finky089

    sounds like a cool gig. I bet you don't even have to get dressed for work if you don't wanna (well, except if you have your crew there...unless you're all cool with that sorta thing.) <p> Unfortunately, I am in real estate finance (mostly multifamily) and can't directly help on the production loan. But, if you know someone who owns an apartment building/complex and will refinance it to let you use their money for moviemaking purposes, I might be able to get you decent pricing for the loan! <p> Actually, I'm one of those guys who has been a perpetual writer for years, but has a hard time finishing things. I've done a year of screenwriting classes, too, and pretty much finished one script, and started countless others, but I never seem to find enough time to finish before life interrupts. <p> That said, I still have a dream of selling my writing, quitting this ubernasty corporate lifestyle and being a successful, working writer. <p> Ah, to dream.....

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 5:48 p.m. CST

    GOOD FOR YOU

    by occula

    don't worry, you'll finish something sooner or later. so long as you got it in you, you can do it. my friend's grandfather just published his first novel at AGE 98. life has a way of getting in the way, but sometimes you just have to look for a chink in the armor, you know? it'll happen. aren't i positive today!

AHHAHAAHAH i'm so funny i crack myself up!!<p>on an entirely unrelated note, i got my 'blade runner final cut' in the mail today (next week's class is all about blade runner) and it's like watching an entirely different film. wowza!

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 9:24 p.m. CST

    Back to Indy

    by TerryMalloy

    I think the problem with sequels is that everyone involved becomes self-aware. Whatever magic the first film had is dissected, analyzed, and attempted to be duplicated. But the identification of "what worked" is often wrong or certain parts are exaggerated. So the magic is killed. The Last Crusade, while an entertaining flick and a great ride, cannot compare to Raiders. I hope enough time has passed and the filmmakers/actors have matured enough to be able to try to create something new out of the old.

  • Feb. 1, 2008, 11:04 p.m. CST
