Indiana Jones Trailer Hits Friday!

indianaposter3

I haven’t done much coverage of the upcoming Indiana Jones film but here’s some interesting news, the teaser trailer debuts in theaters this weekend. Paramount Pictures and Lucasfilm Ltd. announced today that the first teaser trailer for the highly anticipated Indiana Jones adventure “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,” directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford in the title role, will debut in theaters across the globe on February 14, 2008.  The trailer will air exclusively on ABC’s “Good Morning America” that morning between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m.  Immediately thereafter, the footage will be available at the film’s official site IndianaJones.com, Yahoo! Movies and in motion picture theaters.

On May 22, Indiana Jones is back in a new globe-trotting adventure, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."  Directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Harrison Ford as Indy, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" is a Lucasfilm Ltd. Production.  The movie features an outstanding cast, including Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett, Karen Allen, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Oscar® winner Jim Broadbent and Shia LaBeouf.  Frank Marshall is the film’s producer.  George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy are the executive producers. The screenplay is by David Koepp from a story by George Lucas and Jeff Nathanson.  It’s pretty interesting and ironic that Shia, David and Jeff Nathanson have all talked exclusively with Eclipse in the past and will be featured in the upcoming EM Interview book.

  1. Hope it’s a good trailer, we have all waited a long time for this one. And Ford is really showing his age on this one, shame they couldn’t have gotten this one done sooner (and with Connery too.)

  2. I can’t remember another movie with so many things going for it both good and bad. In the bad category is first and foremost Harrison Ford as a leading man action hero. He has proven in Firewall (in which a 60+ year old is supposed to be the world’s smartest computer programmer! In your dreams!) as well as Hollywood Homicide that he can’t pull in audiences anymore as an action hero. However, in Indy 4’s good category is Spielberg, who still has one of the best directing track records possible. This one’s a mystery, although I can’t help but see Harrison Ford’s reluctant acceptance of older leading man as closer to Stallone than Connery. Ford should note that Stallone’s recent movies (remember “Driven”?) , the marketers ignored him in the posters and trailers in favor of explosions and special effects. The Indy poster has Ford looking very shadowy, hiding wrinkles and gray hair perhaps?

  3. Just went and saw the trailer at indianajones.com. First half of it were scenes from the first 3 movies, followed by scenes from the new one. Ford does look silly doing the same stunt work he did 30 years ago. It might seem more exciting watching the trailer on the big screen, but on the computer it looked a little boring.
