Bootleg of the Indiana Jones trailer. (UPDATED! w/ the real thing!)


Yahoo! Movies just posted the real thing. Now you can actually hear what some of the people were saying. Enjoy:


Apparently, Good Morning America is supposed to premiere the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at some point today. Well it looks like Spanish movie news site Ahora Hollywood got the drop with this cell phone bootleg.

Check it out:

The overuse of footage from the original trilogy doesn't sit well with me, however, the new scenes - what few there are for a May release - do look pretty good. My favorite scene being the shot of Dr. Jones' silhouette on the car as he picks up his iconic fedora. Some of the temple action scenes look like crap from The Mummy Returns, but it's not like a modern-day Lucas joint was ever going to avoid using CGI.

One more thing I want to add is that it seems like Spielberg & co. are borrowing from the rusty action hero template Sylvester Stallone established for his last Rocky and Rambo movies. Here again, we have another hero of yesteryear, in over his head because of old age, and yet he'll most likely win out in the end by virtue of accumulated experience and a drive to succeed.

So in other words, I'm now officially down with Indy IV, if for no other reason besides the scene with Indiana Jones' shadow. But if Harrison Ford tells Shia LaBeouf's character, "Die for something, or live for nothin'!" I will promptly go to the box-office and get my ticket refunded.
