Report: George Lucas says “Indy 5” is a definite possibility…

At the Cannes Festival, George Lucas was a guest when he saw the animated film “Kung Fu Panda” which Angelina Jolie and Jack Black does the voice overs. George Lucas spoke with Fox News while there and says there is a definite possibility of an “Indy 5”.

“I haven’t even told Steven or Harrison this,” he said. “But I have an idea to make Shia [LeBeouf] the lead character next time and have Harrison [Ford] come back like Sean Connery did in the last movie. I can see it working out.

“And it’s not like Harrison is even old. I mean, he’s 65 and he did everything in this movie. The old chemistry is there, and it’s not like he’s an old man. He’s incredibly agile; he looks even better than he did 20 years ago, if you ask me.”

I’d say bring on another Indy! I love the idea of an aging Indy passing the torch to a younger guy!

Rumour has it that “Indy and the Crystal Skull” did leave open for another movie at the end.

Thought: The Top Ten Best “Indiana Jones Moments”…

With “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” coming around the corner, I just wanted to discuss some of the best scenes from all three Indy flicks. I’m getting really excited for Indy 4 and I will see it on the night it comes out. I also have plans in seeing “Prince Caspian” this weekend as well.

The Top Ten Best Indy Moments here:

10. The Bar Fight scene at Marion’s Bar – (Raiders) This is a classic action sequence. All the fire and gun shooting. Major Toht is one of the coolest badguys in Hollywood movies! I always loved this scene in Raiders the most.

9. Indy finds where Ark is in the Map Scene – (Raiders) This seen sends chills down my spine everytime I see it. This scene is amazing. I don’t know what it is about this scene, I just think it’s the creepy music score being played during it.

8. Indy fights a bald Nazi at the plane after finding the Ark – (Raiders) Another classic action scene. Thank you Spielberg!

7. Indy shoots a swordsman – (Raiders) A tiny scene, but classic and shows a comedic side of Indy!

6. Indy turns into a villain – (Temple of Doom) Moloram forcing Indy to turn into a bad guy is just pure gold. This is where Harrison’s acting gets amazing. Indy was a real badguy you wanted to hate in this film, just perfect acting by Harrison!

5. The Bridge scene – (Temple of Doom) Short Round “Hang On Lady, we’re going for a ride…”  Willie “Oh my god, oh my god, isn’t he nuts?” Short Round, “He no nuts, he’s crazy!” The final action scene in Temple of Doom is possibly another one of the greatest action scenes ever made. I love this scene to death, I think Spielberg’s goal with this scene, he was supposed to make this scene scary as hell. Not entertaining in a way. It’s supposed to be scary, and yes, it is scary as fuck being over 100 ft in the air of that bridge and Indy cuts it to pieces.

4. The Young Indiana Jones scenes – (The Last Crusade) “The Last Crusade” was a pretty good movie but not the best of the series, but the only best thing about the film was the opening sequence with River Phoenix playing the Young Indiana Jones, totally explaining what Indy was like as a child was pure gold. I love the scene so much.

3. The Mine Chase Roller Coaster Ride scene – (Temple of Doom) Another classic Indy scene that is very entertaining. A thrill ride.

2. Truck Chase scene – (Raiders) Spielberg created one of the greatest action scenes ever made. I’ll never get tired of watching this scene, the scene where Indy goes after the truck where the Ark is in is pure magic and thrilling!

1. Belloq opens the Ark – (Raiders) The ending to “Raiders” where Belloq opens the Ark, and all these ghosts started coming out of it, The Nazis started melting while Indy and Marion are tied together keeping their eyes closed so the same doesn’t happen to them. I always found the ending to “Raiders” to be classic, the ending used to scare me when I was a kid.

There you have it, my choices for the top 10 Best Indy scenes and moments. Spielberg created a lot of fun classic Indy scenes and I’m sure he created some great memorable scenes for “Indy 4” that we’ll never forget too.

Report: Indiana Jones game announced for PS3/Xbox?

I was just browsing the Best Buy website for PS3 games and I came across something that surprised me. There is a new Indiana Jones game coming out for the PS3/Xbox. Above is a screen shot from the upcoming new game. Best Buy says it’s being released March 1st of 2009 but doing research in other videogame sites they all say the release date is “to be announced”.

You can see more screenshots here:

Not sure if Harrison Ford does the voice overs for Indy in the game or not, but either way, doesn’t matter, it’s great that a new Indiana Jones videogame is finally happening and I’ll be getting it when it comes out.

From all the screen shots I’ve seen, looks like this game is not based on any of the 4 films, the videogame looks to be a new original story.

An Indiana Jones Celebration!!!!

With “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” coming out at the end of this month, May 22nd, I thought I would do a little Indiana Jones celebration, by posting the original trailer and the original theaterical poster of each film along with it.

Enjoy. Can’t wait for May 22nd, I’m at the theaters that night! It’s a proven fact that this will be the biggest film of the year.

Thought: May will be a big competition for movies…

So, three huge films are coming out all in one month in May. “Iron Man, “Indiana Jones 4”, and “Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”. I plan on seeing all three next month. At first I wasn’t interested in “Iron Man” but the more photos and trailers I’ve seen of the film, I now think it’s going to be one of the best superhero films made in a long time.

Indy 4 I’ve been dying to see ever since it was first announced. I’m such a huge Indy nut. I actually watched “Raiders of the Lost Ark” on DVD a couple of days ago and the movie still amazes me, you learn something new everytime you watch that film. I’ve seen “Raiders” over a hundred times that I’ll never get tired of that film. I plan on watching “Temple of Doom” and “The Last Crusade” this weekend.

But in Indy 4, I really think we’re definitely going to see the return of the Ark. In the previews and the pictures, we see Indy trying to fight for a boxed crate in a warehouse against the Russians. Which I’ll imagine the Ark of Covenant is inside of it. Indy 4 shall be a great film and I’m looking forward to it. Indy 4 definitely will not top “Raiders” but it will be a fun movie.

“Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian”, I love the Chronicles of Narnia books by C.S. Lewis so much, I’ve read them all when I was a kid. The animated movies of these stories weren’t that great, the low budget UK versions are shit too. It is about time a live action US movie is made off these books. “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” is such a mind blowing film, it’s a beautiful film and it’s definitely one of my top films ever made, and “Prince Caspian” looks amazing too.

We all know these three films will make big money breaking records, which one will make the most money out of all three of them?

I am predicting “Indy 4”. “Indy 4” will steal the record out of all three. I’m sure when May 22nd comes, we’ll be seeing the lines of the movie theaters going out all the way past the food courts in the malls. This is why I plan on seeing these movies in the afternoon so I don’t have to deal with long lines in the evening hours.

But I’m really am looking forward to these three films. I haven’t been to the theaters to see a new film for a while ’cause there hasn’t been anything good playing the last couple of months, The last movie I saw in theater was “Vantage Point” I think, that was a while back. And of course, I will review “Iron Man”, “Indy 4” and “Prince Caspian” in this blog. Can’t wait to see ’em.
