Indiana Jones part IV

I grew up on movies. I didn’t just watch Disney stuff either; by the time I was five I had already seen films like Casablanca and Lawrence of Arabia. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that one of my early childhood heroes is returning to the big screen this summer. No, not Ari Ben Canaan, I’m talking about Indiana Jones.

In May, 2008 the fourth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise is slated to hit theatres. The movie’s called Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The plot’s been kept completely secret (I couldn’t find any real information from a google search, anyway), but it has been revealed that Indy’s son is focal point of the script. Indy had a son?! What?! And it’s not that Chinese kid from Temple of Doom?! Should be interesting.

Let’s hope Sean Connery has a big role, too. He absolutely made The Last Crusade.

You're a little behind on the news about Indy 4 so here's an update for you. First off no Connery, he has retired and is playing golf. Second, Shia hasn't been confirmed as Indy's son yet and there is a lot of rumor which point to the contrary. DNA results are pending I guess!? The movie does however feature Karen Allen reprising her role as Marion Ravenwood. The story is set in the 1950's so no Nazi's just those good 'ol nasty red Russian communists. Another rumor, which I hope is false, is that the alien props from Close Encounters have been dusted off to be featured in Indy 4. I sure hope this movie isn't some Roswell story but I will reserve my judgments until after I have seen the movie 43 times. Hope this whets your whistle!

/Poster due later this month.
//Teaser trailer in February.
