Trailer Trash: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL
Scheduled release date: May 22

It’s been nearly 20 years since the last Indiana Jones installment and though the world is a much different place these days, some things, thankfully, never really change.

So while the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull doesn’t really give away much (OK, any) of the highly anticipated flick’s plot, it does reassure fans that this Steven Speilberg-directed film relies on the Indy Film Gold Standard.

Which means you’ll get, in no particular order, tons of Harrison Ford (still smokin’ at 65);smart aleck one-liners; the Fedora; tumbling boulders; fiery explosions; winding chases; daredevil stunts; hot vixens; sucker punches, and lost treasures.

Oh, the film also stars Ray Winstone, Shia LaBeouf, Cate Blanchett, John Hurt and Jim Broadbent - but, as you and I both know, they’re sorta beside the point.

Rating: 3 dancing popcorn guys (out of 4)
