Just been looking over at IndianaJones.com and was admiring their new look (and John Williams’ theme) when I saw that the title of the new Indy movie has been revealed. Shia LaBeouf announced it during the MTV Video Music Awards last night, which the official site has now confirmed.
The title is Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Sounds like a mouthful but I actually quite like it. It’s got a bit of the feel of Raiders of the Lost Ark (my favourite Indy movie) and with Karen Allen back, maybe that’s the feel they’re going for. I did like the rumoured working title, though, Indiana Jones and the City of Gods. Either would have worked for me.
Anyway, with the title out the way, hopefully there won’t be too much more revealed before the teaser trailer. I can avoid spoiler sites easily enough, but it’s harder to avoid IndianaJones.com for 8 months! Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will be released worldwide on May 22, 2008. Start the countdown. 🙂
One thought on “Indy 4 title revealed”
Oh, dear, I’m not sure I want to see this one. I mean, come on, will we see Indy rolling around in his wheelchair?
CJ: I’ve been joking for the past year that Indy 4 should be called Indiana Jones and the Retirement Home, so I know what you mean! My feeling is it can work if they do it well, or it could be very silly… I’m hoping the former. We’ll probably get a better sense when the trailer comes out. 🙂
