Let me start by saying that I was not watching the MTV Music Awards…my wife was, I just happened to be in the same room at the time.
Anywho, Shia LeBouf was on as a presenter, and he said that he was sworn to secrecy about Indy 4 news by Speilberg and Lucas, but what the heck, why not? Then he revealed the title…
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The crowd reaction was hilarious…kind of like “So? Bring back Fall Out Boy.”
So…Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I think it’s pretty much impossible to say that you like or dislike an Indiana Jones title. It is what it is. I think it’s pulpy enough to fit right in with the first three films.
Despite that nagging little feeling I have that says this movie will fail, it does seem like they’re getting it right…they pulled of the trifecta of Lucas, Speilberg and Ford, they brought back Karen Allen as Marion and they’ve got Hollywood’s next big star in LeBouf. Could KOTCS succeed?
