More Indiana Jones IV Photos - Are You Getting Excited Yet?
We're still waiting for one more final trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but until then, we've got to suffice with a few new photos. Nothing new in these, nor will there be any new imagery until the film hits, but at least it's something to enjoy while we wait another 57 days until Crystal Skull arrives in theaters. I thought I'd use this opportunity to gauge the current level of interest in Indiana Jones. Back in October, it was the most highly anticipated movie of 2008. But I'm wondering whether that has changed and if something else has taken the top spot…
I remember last year, before we even had that teaser trailer, Indiana Jones IV was the movie that everyone was talking about. That was before that first The Dark Knight trailer and even before the Iron Man trailer, too. But now I feel like Indy has lost some of the buzz it had last year. I still think it's going to perform well, but is everyone else getting excited yet? Are these photos and continuous buzz still building up your anticipation? It's only a few months away.
I will still say that I'm getting very, very excited. Once we get another new trailer though, that will be when the anticipation peaks. I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan myself, but the first trailer for this has been overshadowed by so many other great trailers that I've got to see something new to be pulled back in 100%. Definitely looking forward to May 22nd - see you in theaters!

THE DARK KNIGHT WILL BE 1ST IN BOX OFFICE

Why wouldn't it be john? Are you really that stupid? INDY 4 will do fine in box office, but I'm not as hyped anymore.

Indy will certainly rank in the Top 3. There is a lot of anticipation for this flick!! It's very likely that Heath Ledger's untimely death will spur more anticipation beyond the core and casual "Batman" fans. Having said that, let's not underestimate the allure and mystical power of "Indiana Jones" and it's multi-generational appeal! All in all, we are in for one hell of a summer at the movies!

Indy's still on my list but TDK still takes the lead. i'm not too excited for this one cause i only truely loved the first Indy and only enjoyed the second and third. sorry...TDK > Indy. but bring on another trailer and maybe i'll get more hyped about it. haha.

TDK and Indy IV are equally as exciting to me. I don't get why we all have to rally towards one movie.

Yes, I think Indy will outdo the other big summer offerings. The Dark Knight looks awesome, but it doesn't have the excitement for me the way Indy does. Iron Man might be mindless filler fun, but the trailer did nothing for me. Looks like a renter. TDK may of taken on a bit more clout because of Ledger's death, but I think Indy will do just as well, if not better. I was excited from the start, and still remain to be, but someone needs to tell George Lucas to stop talking about the movie!.

Shia's trash 'stache kind of lessens my anticipation. Just kidding... Although didn't Lucas recently give an interview where he said Indy 4 is "just a movie" and people shouldn't get so worked up about it? No doubt trying to temper expectations after the colossal fallout of The Phantom Menace, but still - it's a bit of a buzzkill.

Ha ha "Indiana Jones never rides bitch" eh Tom. But yeah can't wait to see Indy back in action this summer. 🙂

Lucas needs to let Spielberg do the talking!

I'm an Indy fan, but at this point I'm more interested in The Dark Knight.

You heard it here first. INDY IV will surpass The Dark Knight in worldwide revenue by more than 100 mil. Both films will be terrific in their own way; but the overall feeling in the industry about INDY IV is something that hasn't been anticipated since Spider-Man. Love, An Industry Lacky
