More Indy pics

Apr. 18, 2008by: James Thoo

Apparently the dudes at Paramount noticed that on my last update about INDIANA JONES pictures I was flagging, since here they are again forcing me to write up two more. Fortunately, they come by way of EW and some cool dialog. That basically I means I can pad this shit out with Ford-Spielberg quips such as the following:

Nineteen years have passed since the last Indiana Jones movie was released, making the fourth installment hitting theaters May 22 perhaps the most anticipated movie of the summer. However, some people might not want to see a beloved action icon reaching AARP eligibility. What does Ford have to say about that? "Yeah, Ive heard it," Ford says. "Aaaaw, hes older. Well, s---, yes. And by the way? So are you. Soareyou! Take a look in the f---ing mirror!"

Or this peach:

Lucas: "Were doing it to have fun. We dont need the money. Were only going to get aggravation. The fans think its gonna be the Second Coming. And its not the Second Coming. Theyve already written the story [in their heads], and lemme tell ya, its not that story. So theyre going to be very disappointed. I went through this with Phantom Menace. Believe me, Ive been there, Ive done it, I know exactly the way they react ...Were not gonna have adoring fans sending us e-mails saying how much they loved the movie. Were gonna have a bunch of angry people saying, 'Youre a bunch of assholes, you should never have done this. Youve ruined my life forever. I loved Indiana Jones so much and now its ruined.'"

Spielberg: "Uh, he needs to speak for himself here. [Laughter all around] You need to put in parentheses, 'George Lucas is totally speaking for himself.' And I absolve myself of any connection with that last statement about fans not liking it."

Lucas: "All Im saying is, I have been there, and I have walked through the valley of death on highly anticipated sequels."


So yeah, you can get some more over HERE, and be sure to pick up EW's Summer Movie Preview issue for some more exclusive pictures.
Extra Tidbit: The idea of Spielberg and Ford sitting back and chilling together makes me happy inside.

oh and btw..

I could care less what anybody says about this movie, I can't fucking wait to see it. My number one most anticipated movie of the summer by a long shot.. nothing can ruin this movie. Harrison Ford + Spielberg + Lucas = amazing.. nothing can ruin this whatsoever.. unless they have an entire green screen.. and then Indiana Jones would look very out of place.

ok

ok servo.. I'm giving the finger to George Lucas because he ruined one of the greatest franchises ever. He turned Darth Vader into a laughable stiff fucking pussy. I wanted to love the movies. I WANTED TO LOVE THEM.. but they just wern't good. I'm not comparing them to anything. I could watch any one of the individual star wars movies and feel a great story from start to finish.. I didn't get that with the prequels. yeah, they were fun.. but they were horrible movies. The plot of all 3 of

Speak for yourself, because youre easily amused, but please.. don't speak for me.

Well, Corran Horn...

How about "Jaws"? "Seven"? "Star Wars" (New Hope)? I can't say they were absolutely miserable, but there's more than a few horror stories from the cast and crew of those three alone. But regardless, you have a good point and I worded myself wrong and you bring up some good examples. I'm just wary when producers bring that up. You usually hear about that sort of thing after the movie comes out.
And, off that subject, if they're so concerned with secrecy, then why do they always release

It's Indiana Jones, Spielberg is directing, and I can't NOT be excited for this movie. But the fact that we still haven't seen much from it definitely gives me a bit of pause. Here's hoping for a new trailer soon, and here's hoping it's going to kick my ass.

That Blanchett pic is hot also.

Well, fury159

Who on earth said the cast and crew couldn't enjoy themselves if they want to make a good movie. The cast and crew of LOTR very much enjoyed themselves during filming and the films turned out just fine. The Silence of the Lambs cast/crew also remarked on how enjoyable the set was and how Jon Demme went out of his way to keep things upbeat (given the subject matter).

Answer me this then: can you name any good movies where the cast and crew were absolutely miserable?

Lucas talks Bantha Shit

No, fans don't hate on movies not living up to expectations; they hate on shit movies *Star Wars Prequels* that shit on the franchise they came from. Get it through yer fucking heads.

Now, I'm keeping an open mind for "Crystal Skulls"; Spielberg is directing. I was there back in 1989 at a drive-in watching Indy ride off into the sunset, and here we are almost 20 years later with another flick...

I'm trying to be neutral on this, but I'm slowly thinking this could be a huge turd. Granted "Phantom Menace", whether or not it was good, could NEVER have delivered on the hype and expectations surrounding it, so Lucas has a point. Jesus Christ couldn't have lived up to that. I'm just worried because there's been so little shown of it. "Phantom Menace" had three trailers by this point? And they just revealed Indy has a 2 hr 20 min run time? Just feels like something's being hid, rather than

And how many movies are good when the cast and crew say they had a good time? Remember when everyone from "Ocean's 12" said they had such a good time making it? Yeah, it looked like a bunch of rich fucks (as much as I like their work) prancing around saying, "Look at how fun we're having running around Amsterdam and getting paid for it"!
I dunno, I still have confidence in Spielberg to deliver from screen story by Lucas and Jeff Nathanson (yeah, he wrote Rush Hour 3 AND Speed 2 [but also Catch Me If You Can]: And Lucas turned Frank Darabont down!?). Although David Koepp has the screenplay credit. If it sucks, let's just riot.

Y'know what? This is going to be a great fucking movie. And not because I think I know the story (I have no idea), it's because Spielberg's a great filmmaker, Lucas is a great filmmaker, and Harrison Ford is a fucking bad ass, and Indiana Jones is just a fun ass franchise. I'm going to have fun no matter what the storyline is. Yeah, the prequels were laughable. But I had fun. That's what this crew is all about. They couldn't give a shit about the money. They're the richest stars in the world.

They're the richest stars in the world. Of course Lucas is acting like a blowhard, you've got pissed off people like JohnLocke giving him the finger for making films that didn't live up to the "GREATEST FILMS OF ALL TIME" standard. But y'know what? He did it. He promised us three movies, he promised us a complete story, and even though it didn't live up to what we wanted, because we were fucking 5 when we first saw them, he banked. He didn't just bank, but they were good. They weren't great, they weren't incredible, but for 2 and a half hours I got to see fucking lightsabers on the big screen slice through shit, have John Williams' PHENOMINAL score melt my face, and I got to stare at Natalie Portman. Sounds like a fuckin' summer blockbuster movie to me.

Bring on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (I LIKE the title)! I don't give a shit about the nay-sayers, they can go jump off a cliff and circle-jerk around their Lord of the Rings DVD's. I'm going to have way more fun this summer than those blowhards.

I just try not to think about it comming out it makes time go by way too slow. But I agree with lucas you cant please the fans no matter what its just not gonna happen PERIOD. It can be the best movie ever and there will be some asshole saying naw its not so good and he will rally people together to follow his cause becuase his youth was destroyed by a two hour movie.

speaking of "A New Hope"

I am trying to keep my thoughts neutral for Indy 4, but now that Lucas is saying he's expecting a backlash of hate mail based on his previous piles of shit... I hope this movie fucking kicks mucho ass.

fuck you george lucas

What a piece of shit that guy is.. really.
"I've been down that path before".. yeah, and you failed.. miserably. The Star Wars prequels are fucking terrible, and he knows it.. theyve been universally panned by most people, and lucas is trying to defend himself.

I love the way Spielberg is just like.. uhh.. I'm not with him!

Well, it's not like Lucas hasn't gotten treated like shit by fans. On the other hand, Spielberg directed this movie, not Lucas, so it's a pretty safe bet there won't be any midichlorians or gungans in Indy 4. And that pic of Cate is teh sex!

Lucas sounded like an asshole in that statement. Yeah, blame the fans for having high expectations for a movie instead of the SHITTY movie he made.
