    Looking forward to it. I hope it's a bit more 'gritty' than the last ones. They were great, of course, but now I'd prefer a bit less Spielberg and a bit more Ritchie-esque cinematography. Like how Casino Royale took Bond to a more realistic level.

    I do hope this movie is good, and I liked the old ones, but....
    why can't people come up with new stories anymore?! It seems as if every action/adventure movie coming out currently is a sequel, based on a book or comic strip, or a remake of an old movie. It's getting ridiculous.

    I would believe this is a new story ;) I think the point you are making is new character - perhaps that is what this movie is setting up with Lebouf as the son of Indy...

    I think the movie is going to be sweet. It should be. Taken them long enough to get it together.

    I did do a search but obviously didn't see that one.;)

    If the mods want to lock this one, then it's all gravy. Don't want to step on anyone's toes.:rolleyes: Was just impressed with how Indy-like Harrison Ford looked. Even after all these years. Like he had never stopped playing him.:D

    Really? I think he looks like an old man in a rocking chair. Kind of reminds me of Jed Clampitt from the Beverly Hillbillies

    I just wish Sean Connery came back to reprise his role too.

    Awesome, thanks.

    Anyone know if Karen Allen is going to return as Marion Ravenwood? The two of them had such cool "chemistry" in Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    I need to resurrect this thread to lay down my 2c...

    I was discussing this the other night with a friend over a bottle of Scotch, and I see it thus:

    1. I love the Indiana Jones series because the formula is simple - action, traditional special effects, action, good casting, and action.

    2. George Lucas failed to improve on the Star Wars series with the three prequels because he fiddled with the formula too much IMHO.

    3. If Lucas fiddles with the Indiana Jones formula the new movie will suck.

    4. Casting looks good; Rhys-Davies and Connery will be missed but are not essential (c.f. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom).

    5. Lucas says that traditional special effects will be used; this is good.

    Conclusion: Of all the movie franchises out there, the Indiana Jones series must be one of the hardest to add to without making a stinker, since the bar has been set so high - and unlike the Bond movies (which have high highs and low lows), it's all been good so far. However, the formula of the films is extremely simple, and therein lies the secret for success: new locations, new macguffin, new girl, same Indy!

    Fingers crossed that it's good and pray that Lucas doesn't create another JarJar-like situation...

    I don't know what the obsession with SC is in the Indy films. I watch them for the action and as much as I love SC (one of my favourite actors) he didn't add to the action - it was just good to see him there. The movie doesn't need him.
