WohooO! :snoopy:

On June 18th, they started filming Indiana Jones 4. It's supposed to be released in May 2008. I saw a photo Spielberg released that he had taken of Harrison Ford on set. With the fedora, he really doesn't look that different than the other movies.

It's sure to be a good movie, I'm hoping it will be anyway. Shame that Sean Connery wont be in it though, he was great as Indiana's Dad.

Me too. So far, they seem to be playing it smart. For example, it's set in the 50s, which would make it at least a dozen years after the last one. So Indy will be significantly older. It would have been stupid to try to make Harrison play Indy at the same age as before.

Here's a video from the official site, of the first day (http://www.indianajones.com/community/news/firstday.html) of shooting, w00t!

And another with Shia LaBeouf (http://www.indianajones.com/community/news/news20070618.html), but right now it doesn't seem to want to load.

:ROFL:

While "The Last Crusade" is my favorite of the three films, I admit that I've seen "Temple of Doom" more times than one and three combined. Probably because it was on TV all the time when I was an adolescent and I thought the ripping-heart-out-of-chest scene was the coolest thing ever.

I was a strange kid.

06-27-2007, 04:15 AM
Temple of Doom had its moments, that's for sure. I loved Indy's reaction in the plane when she asked him if he could fly:

"No ... can you?"

The look on his face as he said that was priceless. But I too would have to say The Last Crusade was the best.

ChaosTitan
06-27-2007, 06:33 AM
Someone I know counted how many times Kate Capshaw screamed in "Temple of Doom." I forget the number, but it was something insane. The woman screamed *a lot* in that movie.

I can't wait for it to be out. You know, to be honest, I only watched on Indy movie before, but with the new one coming out I thought I'd brush up on the others. I'm suprised I went this long without seeing them. I know some big Indy fans.

*snickers* That's great.

I think Hollywood's just trying to make money off old successes. Or er, giving the people what they want. Depends on what the people want. I think people have been lobbying for a new Indy movie for a long time.

Hmmm, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. I am a fan of the trilogy but Ford is getting along in years. This could be disastrous.
Is Vic Armstrong involved?

Btw, Raiders is the best and Crusade a close second.

I'd say yes and no to that.

Yes, in that Hollywood recycles like nobody's business. Not only are we inundated with sequel upon sequel, many supposedly new movies are just retreaded old ideas.

No, in that Hollywood is pandering to the masses with some of these films by giving them what they're clamouring for and sometimes they deliver an engaging, entertaining story.

Hopefully Spielberg & co will do that with Indy4. My personal hope is that they will be relatively realistic when it comes to Indy's age. That was my biggest beef with the recent Rocky movie. The story was decent enough, but the fight itself stretched credulity. I could believe Rocky could get in the ring for an exhibition fight with the champ pulling his punches, but there's no way he would go the full distance, especially after the champ started fighting for real.

So as long as they don't get ridiculous with Indy, this movie could be a lot of fun.

With his age, the story will have to be set in, say, 1960s? I wonder whom Indie will be fighting...

According to the site (http://www.indianajones.com/community/news/news20070621.html), it's set in the 50s, so that's not so bad. The earlier films were all pre-WWII.

ETA: the Shia LeBeouf video (http://www.indianajones.com/community/news/news20070618.html) now appears to be working. Just give it a little time to load, it's longer than the other one.

06-27-2007, 08:15 PM
My favorite Indy movie is Raiders. Temple of Doom comes in at a close second. Although the Last Crusade was awesome I believe I liked Temple of Doom better because I was around Short and Round's age when I saw it. So I could totally relate to the character.

I loved the female lead in Raiders and who could resist the monkey. Poor monkey.

I can't wait till this is released! I still wear button up safari shirts because of this guy.

I think it is great these guys get to come back after they have some age on them and portray a hero past their prime. Look back to Clint Eastwood in Unforgiven. I dont think the stories stop just because we grow old. I believe this will be a "passing of the torch" film, so maybe they can keep the Jones franchis going...and that is not such a bad thing...

Why does Temple of Doom get such a bad rap? I have always suspected that because Raiders and Last Crusade deal with more popular Christian themes that they were always more beloved than the creepy cultish aspects of Doom. TOD does have some great scenes though. Club Obi-Wan, and the monkey brains dinner!

I would certainly take TOD over a lot of the action adventure crap out there today. It's no where near as bad as Allan Quartermaine, or The Scorpion King. Now, some of the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles were bad. I'm glad they phased out the 10 year old Indy. I really hope Lucas' plans to release the series on dvd in promo push for Indy 4 go through. It was tough to find the last season, and some of the mini movie episodes were quite good.

Sean Patrick Flannery. Boondocks Saints.

What is so special about this Shia kid?

All I can say is it's about time. I've been hearing about the fourth movie being planned since the third one came out.

Surely Mr. Ford has become a far more seasoned actor since his days in the older movies. I look forward to possibly seeing this newest version when it comes out.

I love all three movies for various reasons, but the first one remains my favorite as a whole. I vaguely remember going to see it in the theater. My mom and dad had gone first, then taken me. I still remember my mom talking to be before hand about the room with the skeletons, and that I didn't need to be scared because they weren't real.

Whatever Mom, I loved it! What can I say, I was a weird kid.

I was the one Chaos mentioned earlier about counting how many times Kate Capshaw screamed in ToD. My dad and I love to MST3K movies, especially those we've seen multiple times. We were watching the movie one day and I said, "I wonder how many times she screams?" We rewound the tape and started counting. I don't remember the exact number, but it was well over 100.

I will go to see the fourth one, mainly because, well, it's Indy. Even if he is named after the dog...:D

ChunkyC
07-01-2007, 08:39 PM
Temple of Doom is my least favourite, but I still like it a lot. Just not as much as the other two. The reason is probably because it is more gross than the others. The dinner scene was disgusting and probably the only scene in any of the movies I could do without.

So, out of curiosity, which one is everyone's favorite Indy movie? 1 or 3?The first one, by far. I also really enjoyed the second film in a preposterous-but-holy-crap-that's-fun kinda way. But I'm in the minority of not caring all that much for 'Last Crusade.'

In I & II, the female lead was lovely and terribly funny. To me, it seems the character of Indy really, really needs that. Whatever-her-face was in the third one was entirely forgettable. No comic timing whatsoever. Pretty? Yes. Interesting? Yawn, what was the question, again?

Sean Connery was terrific and without him, I don't think the third Indiana Jones film would have been worth its weight in donuts.

I agree. You'd be happy to know that Marion (Karen Allen) is going to be back in this one... but it seems like Cate Blanchett gets the top billing.

But what I don't understand is... how the heck does Shia LaBeouf's name go above Harrison Ford's on IMDB? WTF?

Indy can't kick ass and then put on a tux. Bond kicks ass while wearing a tux. Indy would probably take me fishing. I hate fishing. (No offense, Frank.)

I still love Indy, but Craig as Bond has inspired a change in my loyalties.

I've been looking forward to this movie release. I loved the Indiana Jones Trilogy! Personally though, I think those films were the only good ones either Spielberg or Lucas has done. It's good they're also bringing good old Harrison Ford back to the role too--I don't think anybody else could portray Indie correctly. Let's just hope this isn't a let-down.

I still like the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade the best though.

I'm a fan of Indiana Jones and Harrison Ford. Yes, OK, Harrison's getting on a bit, but aren't we all?

I think my favourite Indy film is the Last Crusade, because of the great banter between HF & Sean Connery. A shame Connery's not coming back, but apparently he's enjoying retirement too much.

The second film is not as good as I & III, mostly because of the female lead, who really annoyed me. I like strong female leads. The character in III was a Nazi, but she was a career woman with a brain!

I didn't know Karen Allen was coming back for IV. That will be nice to see.

I would love to be Harrison Ford (or his personal trainer, at least):

According to a Paramount memo that listed Harrison Ford's living expenses provided over and above his salary on "Indiana Jones 4":

$4,500.00 a week for a Personal Trainer.

$5,500.00 a week for Security.

$10,000.00 a week for Hair and Make Up.

$3,000.00 a week for a Driver.

And $300,000.00 for the duration of the shoot for a Private Jet to use when he wants it.


Also, his salary is so high it is NOT even in the actual budget of the movie.


It's good to be Indy.
