Indiana Jones To Arrive Again in 2005

Hemos posted about 11 years ago | from the arise-from-your-grave-jones dept.

Movies 416

Dolemite_the_Wiz writes "The Raider.net reports that the release date for the next Indiana Jones Movie (tentatively titled 'Indiana Jones 4') is, according to Steven Spielberg, "...going to come out probably for the July 4th weekend of 2005...". The movie looks like it will be set in the 1950s and include just about every main character from the first three films. For more links about this movie, check this search result from Cinescape. Secondly, IndianaJones.com reports that the First three films in the Indiana Jones Trilogy will be released on November 4th. These films have to be one of the most requested DVD releases (probably next to the Original 'Star Wars' trilogy and the first two 'Godfather' movies) ever. ""

This Four DVD set will include:

- Restored Film Footage
- Remastered in THX
- New Dolby 5.1 soundtrack
- A 4th DVD with just about every aspect of how the films were made.

This collection will retail for $49.95 (US)

Here's the official release notice for the DVD.I just hope that the new film and DVD will be able to Satisfy all the Indy fans.

My Hero!! (-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | about 11 years ago | (#6329838)

Wasn't Harrison Ford Superman too? Or was it that fag suck in the wheelchair?

Woohoo! About time! (5, Interesting)

nemui-chan (550759) | about 11 years ago | (#6329840)

I'm really happy they're finally coming out with the fourth movie. The rumors I've heard are that Harrison Ford will be the 'old Indiana' and he will be looking back on the adventures of his youth? Not sure how well thats going to work, but I'm sure that I'll be spending my money at the movies when it comes out.

Re:Woohoo! About time! (2, Funny)

taree (675736) | about 11 years ago | (#6329851)

Hope that Sean Connery will be the 'old old Indiana'.

Tarmo

ehhh... (1)

aleksiel (678251) | about 11 years ago | (#6329889)

didn't they make a tv series about that? i seem to remember the young adventres of indiana jones on tv at some point in time. but i also remember rumors of the next movie being about [ominous]the spear of destiny[/ominous] or something like that

Re:Woohoo! About time! (5, Interesting)

Ratphace (667701) | about 11 years ago | (#6329946)


Well, actually the plot is a closely guarded secret at this point, and I am glad.

Sean Connery will be in it as Indiana's Father again and the movie is being set in the 1950's to account for Harrison's aged real life look which cannot be entirely hidden on camera.

I believe they are having the women of his life make cameo's and such, though Karen Allen is the only one that I'd personally like to see in it as Spielberg's wife (Kate Capshaw) just annoys the hell out of me! :)

Anyway, my prediction is this: (and this is entirely me guessing, but I am putting it down here now as proof that I said it before the plot was learned)

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis (yes, like the original PC game that came out years ago)

Why do I predict this? Because Atlantis as a real location still fascinates people around the world today, in fact I was watching Discovery Channel the other night about people that are currently looking for it and clues they have found and such. I mean, let's face it, he's found the most prized Biblical Artifacts already, it's time for him to find something bigger. :)


I guess in the end only time will tell but I thought that I would give you that tidbit at the top about who will be who and why the movie is being set in the 1950's.


P.S.
For all your Indiana Jones Fans out there, in case you missed it (as I am sure most have) in the The Temple of Doom, when Harrison jumps out of the hotel at the beginning with Kate Capshaw and they fall into the car and drive past the entrance to the club that they just ran from, well, the big hidden George Lucas "Easter Egg" is the club is named "Club Obi Wan" (from Star Wars yet had an oriental ring to it) :)
Cheers!

japanese ring because it is... (1)

psxndc (105904) | about 11 years ago | (#6330163)

"Club Obi Wan" (from Star Wars yet had an oriental ring to it)

It has a japanese ring to it becuase it paritally is _real_ japanese. An "Obi" is the belt worn in karate/martial arts uniforms (the belt in "black belt"). As for "Wan" a quick babelfish lookup reveals... nothing. Anyone?

Youth? (4, Funny)

b1t r0t (216468) | about 11 years ago | (#6329953)

Well, if the problem is that Harrison Ford is getting to old, then we need to find someone younger. Who better than a young star of movies with "and the" in the title?

Yes, folks, get ready for Harry Potter and the Temple of Doom!

Re:Youth? (1, Funny)

arivanov (12034) | about 11 years ago | (#6329967)

Nope.

More likely the chap whose name starts with Jar, continues with Jar and ends with Binks.

Considering the popularity of the Star Wars prequels such casting does should not be entirely unexpected.

Re:Youth? (5, Funny)

Surak (18578) | about 11 years ago | (#6330061)

Excerpt from the script: (SPOILERS):

Arabian dude with sword: Twirls sword around, brandishing it menacingly.
Jar Jar: Meesa goin' to da Temple of Doom to find da Lost Ark! Yeah, that's meesa gonna do!
Indiana Jones: Looks at Arabian dude with sword.
Indiana Jones: Looks at Jar Jar.

No... it will be Raiders of the Lost Box Office

At first, they'll release it only on VHS and claim that there will never be a DVD version. And then, once VHS sales have subsided, they'll release a DVD version.

But thank goodness for video rental and DeCSS. I got sick of this the first time around.

Re:Youth? (5, Insightful)

Ratphace (667701) | about 11 years ago | (#6330182)


Personally, I would rather see the series retired before they bring in someone else.

Indiana Jones is not a "James Bond" type that you just pass the reigns on to. Harrison Ford will always be Indiana Jones, plain and simple.

I mean, they have kept the "timeline" of when the movie takes place moving, so it makes passing the reigns harder, whereas James Bond is a 'contemporary character' that is always just played in 'modern times' (i.e. when the file is shot to be in line with how we live our lives at that time).

But seeing the series retired after Harrison Ford retires from acting would be the right thing to do...

In this episode . . . (5, Funny)

LazloToth (623604) | about 11 years ago | (#6329852)

Harrison Ford escapes from the old folks' home in his wheelchair and finds the Fountain of Middle Age in a Roman temple, where a 19-year-old nymphomaniac falls hopeless in love with him for 17 minutes and then he flies away in his airplane.

Re:In this episode . . . (1)

robogun (466062) | about 11 years ago | (#6329886)

Really! They have waited so long to do it, they might as well as forget about it. Harrison Ford *IS* Indiana Jones. It is a little late in his life cycle to try to pull off the rugged adventurer (although I recall Richard Chamberlain did Indiana ripoff "King Solomons Mines" at 55+).

Re:In this episode . . . (2, Flamebait)

Alan Partridge (516639) | about 11 years ago | (#6329921)

King Solomon's Mines is a fine, fine book by H Rider Haggard that hugely predates Indiana fucking Jones. that there's never been a decent version filmed is merely the fault of the studios involved. I'd recommend the book to anyone.

As far as Indiana's concerned - enough already! Raiders was a really enjoyable film, Temple of Doom was abominable, Last Crusade WORSE etc etc etc

Re:In this episode . . . (0, Funny)

and include just about every main character from the first three films.
Even the melted ones?

Yeah they'll use computer generated images (0, Funny)

wadiwood (601205) | about 11 years ago | (#6329992)

They're nearly cheaper than real actors and can be reverse aged more easily.

So I imagine (commences pure fiction) they could use a youthful actor to body double for Harrison and the rest, and paste in Harrison's face scraped from anything he's made where he looks less cragfaced (Star Wars 1977 mode?).

Melted characters could easily be returned this way also. Just like in soap operas. In fact if you've been melted and revived, you'd have to have had lots of plastic surgery right?

So lets have indiana jones and the last unicorn, fight the gremlins in the kremlin...

And that's my final fantasy.

Nope, the melted one just died... (2, Informative)

calebb (685461) | about 11 years ago | (#6329993)

Well, at least one of them did:

Phillip Stone (I)
14 April, 1924 - 15 June, 2003
Captain Blumburtt, Temple of Doom

...At least I think he ended up in the pit - I haven't watched Temple of Doom in a long time.

Bundle ? (1)

mirko (198274) | about 11 years ago | (#6329857)

Will there be a possibility to buy the episodes separately ?
I just don't watch the "extra features" they put in such bundles in order to justify the price difference (and I could spare money by avoiding the "Temple of doom" too).

Re:Bundle ? (2, Funny)

Biogenesis (670772) | about 11 years ago | (#6329912)

Anztac (322182) | about 11 years ago | (#6329864)

"Harrison Ford can still kick the s**t out of most people half his age," Spielberg told us. "I think he's in great condition to put the fedora and the hat and the leather jacket back on and crack that bullwhip a few more times."
Yeah, but if he says "I'm getting to old for this shit" I may have to shoot him...

Market researchers are estimating continuing doldrums in the industry and enterprise businesses see more 'bang for the buck' from making improvements in software as opposed to investing in new infrastructure. This is not necessarily awful, however, for those who hope businesses will start looking toward open source options as the cost effective alternatives..."

It successfully landed after 3 of 4 parachutes properly deployed."

I dont know about Star Wars 7, but We won't have LOTR 4 (the books run out), we will have matrix 4 (they planned from the start to have a 5 movie series), and the contract for Harry Potter runs for 7 movies. What's dangerous is when a movie is created that isn't supposted to have a sequel, and one is later tacked on the end: IE, Rocky movies 2-17, CaddyShack II, and 90% of what disney has been creating rescently (Jungle Book 2, Cinderella 2, etc.)

Indiana Jones 4: Product Placement Info (4, Funny)

Karl Cocknozzle (514413) | about 11 years ago | (#6329891)

Indiana Jones will be using such popular consumer products as Geritol, Fix-a-Dent, Ben Gay, and Preperation H. The people representing those "Rascal" mobility scooters didn't put up enough cash to get into the movie.... Just as well, as the pace would be pretty slow with Harrison Ford buzzing along at a brisk 2 mph on one of those electric scooters.

The people representing those "Rascal" mobility scooters didn't put up enough cash to get into the movie.... Just as well, as the pace would be pretty slow with Harrison Ford buzzing along at a brisk 2 mph on one of those electric scooters.

Could be worse... Imagine if Kamen decide to pay to have Indianna Jones ride a Segway?

Harrison Ford is a good actor, but come on.. he'll be sitting in his wheelchair with a blanket over his legs muttering to friends long dead while his diapers fill with turd.

Is it any wonder entertainment companies are losing cash? Don't blame piracy, blame the fact that they can hardly come up with a new idea among the lot of them.

If you look at Clint Eastwood, he can still play great action characters. Great actors don't need to do difficult physical actions, even in an action movie.

In a Eastwood flick (Bloodwork) he played an aging cop that had to go through a heart transplant. A bit more realistic than Harrison Ford one-handed swinging on vines in the jungle as he shoots the natives with his other hand.

Hey, be fair - Ford's 60, not 90, and in physical good nick. There's plenty of life in the old dog yet, although it does seem slightly bizarre to be doing film 4 now rather than several years ago. Perhaps it would be wise to cut back a bit on the acrobatics and write a plot that's suited to an older, wiser Indy (and if it's set in the 1950s, Indy will have aged about as much as Ford has since the Last Crusade), but writing people off just because they're nearly old enough to collect their pension's a bit unfair.

And hey, Ford now is about two years older than Roger Moore was when he last played James Bond in 1987.

Luck in three's? (3, Insightful)

garcia (6573) | about 11 years ago | (#6329898)

What happened to the trilogies that have become so popular?

Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, Star Wars (I refuse to count the three "newest" ones), etc.

While I am midly excited to see that this film is going to be released I don't see it as being popular. They are going to concentrate on large-scale special effects and less on the content (just like all recent films and sequels/pre).

That's my worthless .02

Re:Luck in three's? (2, Insightful)

jellomizer (103300) | about 11 years ago | (#6330146)

Well I wouldn't say the Back to the Future is considered a good trilogy. The First Movie Was Good. The Second One was OK and the third was Dumb.

But if IJ and SW I think their appeal was the fact that they were Action Movies and the characters seemed believable and not over the top like todays movies (The Flying Yoda). Sure Luke had some force powers but it was usually limited to moving some small objects (The Return of the Jedi made Yoda seem to really concentrate to move the X-Wing) and some limited last minute extended super human tequniques that could almost be considered an endrenalon rush. But they were believable it is something you may see someone do in a circus or at a magic show.
in IJ Indiana, didn't have any super powered he was just creative, and resourceful and all the things he did were believable although probably nobody will survive it.
With all the special effects I feel we loose our emotional connection to the character we don't really care if he survives or not because we don't connect to the character they don't feel human they feel like a video game.
So Far the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter seem like they are good movies. (Although there are a lot of effects in these movies you don't see Grandalf throwing huge fireballs all the time, or Harry Potter racing a pod or constantly doing all the over the edge magic tricks) they try to use special effect a little more responcibibly then some of the other movies (Hulk and Matrix 2 comes to mind) Effects are good and all but using effects for effects sakes doesn't make a good movie. Effects should be used to make the movie more believable and forget that the people in the movie are actors in an fictional environment. I think Forest Gump had the best special effects because most of them were seamless and we didn't even think that they were special effects.

Reworked Scene in RotA (5, Funny)

LordYUK (552359) | about 11 years ago | (#6329908)

**Spoiler from the Downloaded Kazaa Version**

Remember that scene in the bazaar with the sword wielding Arabian dude, you know, the one who wants to slice Indy open like a frozen tauntaun?

Well, in the original Indy just blasts him with his pistol, however, in keeping with the whole "harrison ford shoots second" motiff, Spielburg has decided to let the sword guy swing at him.

This has the undesirerable side effect of Indy losing his left hand, which has been digitially removed and replaced with a walkie talkie. Years later in the fourth movie, Indy is replaced with a slightly (okay, an extremely) sexier version of himself as a woman, and must engage her in fights that involve her wrapping her legs around him that would leave most contortionists in wheelchairs, slightly before judgement day occurs...

oh, wait, wrong overdue sequel with a star way too old for the part...

Supposedly Ford wants to play a Indy his actual age, so there wasn't much flexibility in the date.

Given the poplarity of I & III vis-à-vis II you can expect the key artifact to be another Judeo-Christian thingy. That means high probability of a setting in the Middle East.

In such a case you may see KGB agents instead of Nazis as the foils, though they could probably pretend there was some kind of ex-Nazi organization in the area for the movie's purposes.

I'd like to see them work in a satirical encounter with James Bond...

The Godfather DVD's are out, as a 5 disc trilogy set. It was released a year and a half ago, about $80 US.

I guess they could be meaning that they only wanted Godfather I and Godfather II as single DVD's, rather than pay for the full box set. True, Godfather III was not up to par with the other 2 movies, but it was far from "bad". It was more in the "not as good" department.

I think the poster was alluding to the fact that most people, including myself, only like Godfather I & II and aren't going to be forced into buying the box set. Personally, I refuse to buy the box set because it is way over-priced. It works out to approx. $27 per movie! There is only one extra disk (which doesn't amount to much material over 3 movies) in the set which does not justify the extra cost. Comparatively, the Indiana set works out to $17 per movie. A much better deal all in all.

And don't forget to check out Spielberg Films [spielbergfilms.com] for fairly up-to-date news.

From their Temple of Doom page [spielbergfilms.com] : It looks like the news previously reported regarding extra features on the fourth disc of the INDY set was on the money as the bonus disc will include documentaries on "The Making of the Trilogy", "The Sound and Music of Indiana Jones", "The Special Effects of Indiana Jones" and "The Stunts of Indiana Jones".
DVDFile says the "Making Of" doc will be a "new full-length documentary", so its safe to assume that the documentary will be a substantial, feature-length look at the making of the trilogy.
No word is made about deleted scenes, but amazon.com's spec list did state they would be present. Judging by the accuracy of the other extras they named, things are pointing to their inclusion, but you never know until the discs is in our grubby hands.

River played Indy in a flashback scene at the begining of the 3rd film. There was never any discussion of him replacing Ford.

Sean Patrick Flanery was Indy on the TV series. There was never any discussion of him replacing Ford either.

Being that this film will be in the 1950's, Indy will be older, so Harrison Ford will play him again.

The unfortunate side effect is Short Round is likely to show up wondering why Dr.Jones stopped paying child support.

Strangely I got him (Sean) muddled with Jason Connery who is Sean Connery's son, who played Ian Flemming. Just to make confusion whole.

As far as I knew, Speilberg was working on Alexander the Great in 2005. Harrison seems to be working on something about Tombs in 2004 but he's not playing Indiana in that movie.

I'm not sure how a flash back presentation could be so very different from the TV series. And Sean Connery proves you can never be too old to be an action hero even if somewhat unconvincing (sick even) in Entrapment.

If the new Indiana Jones movie takes place in the 1950's, then Ford will be just about exactly the right age to play the part. The trilogy took place around the 30's and were recorded about 15-20 years ago. Indy was about 30-35 ish then, which would make him in his 50's for in the 1950's. Granted he is a little old to be running around with a wip, but remember... he DID drink from the Grail and he is now immortal!!

With any luck, he's got the grail already.
