It’s finally here: the trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Considering that the movie opens a couple of weeks after Iron Man, which had a trailer come five months ago and a couple of months before The Dark Knight, which has also already released a trailer a while back, I’d say it’s about time we were shown some footage.
Enough cynicism – If you’re an Indy fan, get ready to geek out big time by watching the trailer below…
Ok, ok… I haven’t been the biggest cheerleader for this movie, but I have to admit that the trailer totally captured the spirit of the series, dead on. It hits all the right notes as far as nods to the fans, setting a familiar tone as far as action and the look of it. The only thing that made me roll my eyes was seeing what’s supposed to be a 60 year old guy doing stunts like jumping off of, and on to a moving truck (among other things).
Yes, I know it’s fantasy, but picture your grandfather, even if he’s in great shape, trying some of that. Two words: hospital visit.
Barring that, I’m finally feeling a bit of excitement and am looking forward to Indy 4.
“Damn, I thought it was closer.”
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull opens on May 22, 2008
