Which means we can probably look forward to George Lucas throwing shade at Indiana Jones 5 after it comes out.

Rumours abound of an unlikely star for Predator. Get new looks at Wonder Woman, Doctor Strange and Skull Island in the lead up to Comic-Con. Plus, another new clip from Star Wars Rebels season three, the first look at the next season of Sherlock and new pictures from Fear the Walking Dead. To me, my spoilers!
Harrison Ford's return to Star Wars actually becoming his prompt exit from Star Wars might have fans of Indiana Jones worried that the same fate will befall another beloved Ford hero when the actor returns for Indiana Jones 5. Not so, according to director Steven Spielberg. Or at least not so... for now.
On 12 June 1981, adventure got a new name: Indiana Jones. Now, 35 years later, Steven Spielberg and George Lucas' film Raiders of the Lost Ark remains a revered classic and one of the best action films of all time. To begin the anniversary celebration, Lucasfilm has licensed a brand new, limited edition poster everyone can grab.
The biggest challenge for the new Star Wars was to make us love Rey and Finn as much as Luke and Han. Mission accomplished! But most of the time, when a venerable franchise introduces new characters, it's a horrendous failure. Here are 10 long-running series that actually made us care about new characters.
The story is legendary. In the early Eighties, three 11-year-old boys decided to embark on a shot-by-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark. What started small turned into a multi-decade project that got the attention of the entire world. Now, it's a documentary called Raiders: The Story Of The Greatest Fan Film Ever Made.
Besides the name "George Lucas", the biggest omission from the announcement of a fifth Indiana Jones film was the writer. It didn't take long for director Steven Spielberg to land on someone: David Koepp, who wrote Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, will be responsible for bringing Indy back one more time.
When Indiana Jones returns to theatres in 2019, 30 years will have passed since we last saw him... is what you may be thinking today, assuming you're one of the many people who deny Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg returned to the franchise in 2008 with Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. But now that a fifth movie is on its way, it's time to take another look.
Very few people enjoyed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Actually, I'm not sure if there was a single person who ever watched an Indiana Jones movie before who liked the movie. But as Pablo Fernandez Eyre points out in this video comparison, there were a lot of similarities between the last Indiana Jones and the first three.
The tiny sixth-scale fedora alone makes Hot Toys' Indiana Jones figure a worthy addition to any collection. But as with all the plastic doppelgangers the company sells, everything from the convincing Harrison Ford sculpt, to his tired and torn outfit, to Indy's other iconic accessory, his whip, make this $US230 figure worth every cent.
I always enjoy these stupid simple and zany animation summaries of movies by 1A4STUDIO that take film classics and squeeze all the important scenes in goofy squealing glee. Here's the newest: Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It's like one awesome chase scene.
It's hard to say what my favourite thing about Steven Soderbergh's new remix of Raiders of Ark is. Is it the total lack of dialogue? Or maybe it's the vivid black-and-white rendering that makes you forget the film is supposed to be in colour. Actually, honestly, it's the sick 8-bit soundtrack. That's it.
John Williams is a musical magician, with some of the most recognisable scores in the history of film sitting comfortably under his belt. Understandably, Williams' work has been covered and re-covered by the denizens of YouTube, including this one-man-bad effort by a fellow called "The Human Tim" (real name unforthcoming). It's the theme to Indiana Jones done in a slightly less classical fashion.
Until Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull came along, The Temple of Doom was considered the least enjoyable of the Indiana Jones films — due in no small part to the dinner scene involving baby snakes, and chilled monkey brains served in their own skulls. A meal you can finally serve at home, or at least a close facsimile thereof, using these faux monkey head bowls.
