Indiana Jones 5 coming July 19th, 2019 15 Mar, 2016 / 3 comments

It's official, and it ain't gonna be no reboot neither. This will be a proper fifth installment with Harrison Ford and Steven Spielberg.

I know many will be dubious, but I say bring it on. The oddly lethargic Crystal Skull is all the more reason to do this - the Ford era deserves a better send off. Age isn't an issue; Ford looked great in the new Star Wars and walked away from a freaking plane crash recently.

My suggestion? Keep Indy overseas for the whole movie a la Temple of Doom. And if they take The Godfather Part II approach where they do parallel narratives with a 30s era Indy (to smooth the transition to the inevitable recast), one hopes they favor the "Michael Corleone" plot line by a ratio of like 90/10.

Oh, and somehow I knew this would happen before another Indy video game showed up.

    I'm very happy for the announcement! It's amazing. I think Indiana Jones is one of the biggest heroes of the cinema, and I'm glad because he's going to back. Crack your whips, gentlemen! We are going to search our fortune and glory for (maybe) the last time.

    Supposedly George Lucas has nothing to do with this, so doubly bring it on.

    I already can't wait. I'm still prepared to put money on a Telltale Indiana Jones adventure being made eventually. Probably closer to 2019. Let's hope the big Indiana Jones franchise revival goes better than the last one (Staff of Kings, sob).


    A new Indy adventure game? Yes, please!
