Steven Spielberg Wants To Return To Indiana Jones With Chris Pratt

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 22, 2015 in Cinema


When we heard that Disney wanted to reboot Indiana Jones, I don’t think many people were surprised. When Chris Pratt was being floated as the possible lead, I think most folks said, “Yeah, I could totally see that.” The real surprise is this: Steven Spielberg is expressing interest in directing the reboot and returning to the franchise again. It’s still very early in the process, but assuming the script is to his satisfaction, Spielberg does want to direct Pratt in a new adventure. Spielberg definitely still has talent so I suppose this isn’t a bad turn of events! There’s still a ways to go, but we could be looking at a new Jones film soon. Read more…

Disney Nabs Rights to Indiana Jones

Posted by Ben Huber on Dec 8, 2013 in Cinema


All hail the mighty corporate conglomerate, Disney! On their way to own everything, Disney took a quick stop and snatched up Indiana Jones yesterday. Now, they already technically got ownership rights when it bought Lucasfilm, but now with their agreement with Paramount they’ve gained distribution and marketing rights for all future films. Paramount will continue to handle distribution of the previous four films, so Disney won’t be involved there. The thing is, this news basically means Disney is saying “we want to make another one of these.” So brace yourselves for the inevitable! The biggest thing I’m wondering is how they’ll handle Jones himself. Will Harrison Ford really come back? Or will we have a James Bond situation in which different actors could take on the role?

Indiana Jones Figma Will Loot Your Desk

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 1, 2013 in Hobbies and Collections


Now here’s an excellent adventurer to add to your collection: Max Factory’s figma version of Indiana Jones! At around 6-inches, this is one of the most poseable and detailed figures for that size. It of course features Indy in his distinctive hat, but it appears to be modeled onto his head and not removable, which is a shame. Also included are the various relics and artifacts he’s picked up in his adventure, like the Holy Grail and the golden idol. Since Figma parts are often interchangeable between figures, I can’t wait to see how people mix Indy in with the other figures Max Factor has made! Check out more images below, and pre-order it here or here. Read more…

How Bright Does A Franchise’s Star Burn? Movie Grosses Ranked

Posted by Bob Muir on May 28, 2013 in Cinema, Star Trek, Star Wars

Movie Franchises as Stars

With the recent release of Star Trek Into Darkness and the constant buzz surrounding 2015’s Star Wars: Episode VII, the franchises continue to be big in the public eye. But if these two franchises were stars, how bright would they be? The New Yorker has charted the two franchises, as well as several other prominent franchises throughout the past few decades, to see which franchise has raked in the most money. Unsurprisingly, James Bond wins that, due to there being 24 films in the franchise. But when ranked by what a franchise’s average film earned, Star Wars was the clear winner, as well as in franchise profitability. (Even the prequels couldn’t ruin that!) Since we can’t embed it, you can see the full chart here and find where your favorite franchise wound up. Read more…

An Honest Trailer For Indiana Jones And The Crystal Skull

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 23, 2013 in Cinema

Old Indiana Jones

Hopefully you’ve seen some of the previous work of Honest Trailers, a series of videos by Screen Junkies that produces more frank, insulting trailers for various films. Their latest trailer skewers Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, the fourth Indiana Jones film that I prefer to pretend never happened. Read more…



Indiana Jones is Over, Says Frank Marshall

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 29, 2012 in Cinema


I don’t think we expected much else, but Collider recently reported that Indiana Jone’s producer, Frank Marshall, said just that: to him, Indy has taken his last ride. I’m sure some fans might’ve wished for a better ending to the series than Crystal Skull, but I think another film might hurt more than help. We had heard inklings that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg had been thinking about another film, but Marshall says there’s “no idea, no Macguffin.” Maybe we’ll hear more in the future, but I’m fine with this – you got a solid three movies, Indy. You’re set, in my book.



Indiana Jones Theme Sung A Cappella

Posted by Ben Huber on Jul 23, 2012 in Fandom

How else do you need to start your week than with some crazy bloke singing the Indiana Jones theme? What if it’s well done? And what if it’s 62 tracks combined to make one full-sounding vocal piece? Well, you’d have this. I think we honestly need vocal versions of every pop culture song. And that’s what the internet is for.



The Definitive Indiana Jones

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jul 3, 2012 in Cinema

Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures Blu-Ray

It’s been a long time coming, but the wait is almost over. Set for release this September, Indiana Jones: The Complete Adventures delivers all four Indy films in stunning high-definition for the very first time. Each film will feature full 1080p restorations, and new 5.1 DTS-HD audio tracks. They even restored Raiders of the Lost Ark using a 4k scan of the original negatives, so I’m sure it’ll look absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, the collection also includes Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, but as if to make up for that fact, Amazon has discounted the box set from its list price of $100 to just $75. Read more…

Clever Indiana Jones Posters for Your Office or Underground Temple

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 25, 2012 in Cinema, Fandom


I love Indiana Jones – it’s my favorite adventure film trilogy (shhhh!) and has some of the most recognizable, iconic imagery of any film. Maxime Pécourt realized that, and made three fantastic posters featuring all the various items and objects from the films, formed into the important relics that Jones went after. If you’re interested in these posters, you can check out Pécourt’s Society6 page. And his blog has more creative geek-related work on it as well, so take a look at that as well! Read more…

Indiana Jones Boxset Coming to Blu-Ray This Fall

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 2, 2012 in Cinema


Who doesn’t want some awesome hi-def Indiana Jones action? Finally, after much waiting, we’ve gotten an official announcement of Indiana Jones arriving on Blu-Ray this fall. Sadly, there aren’t really any other details aside from the announcement itself and an Amazon listing for the package that features the pricetag of $75. I’d pay more if Crystal Skull was left out. I kid, I kid. Check out the 720p trailer after the jump. Read more…

Popeye Does Raiders of the Lost Ark

Posted by Michael Sacco on Oct 30, 2010 in Cinema, Comic Books

Popeye does Raiders

Do you like Popeye comic strips? No? You don’t? Well, I suppose that’s probably because you’ve never read one, because why on earth would you have occasion to? But I bet you like Indiana Jones, in which case this most excellent adaptation of Raiders of the Lost Ark done in the style (and speech patterns) of classic Popeye comics. Now all we need is Last Crusade done Tintin-style and we’ll be all set. What’s that? There’s an Indiana Jones movie between Raiders and Crusade? I don’t know what you’re talking about. Read more…

Melt Your Friends Faces With Your Very Own Ark of the Covenant

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Jun 24, 2010 in Cinema, Hobbies and Collections

Ark of the Covenant 1

I’ve always had a soft spot in my heart for Raiders of the Lost Ark, after all, it was the film that introduced us all to one of the most beloved action heroes of all time. I have to admit, it’s been some time since I’ve seen the film but several of the scenes have stuck with me to this day. Of course, there was the swapping of the golden idol for a bag of sand, and the pit of snakes, but more than anything, the image of a nazi’s face melting upon gazing at the contents of one very swank looking ark.  It might not be the full-sized model, but this 1/4th scale replica of the Ark of the Covenant looks just as swank as the prop from the film. It’s a bit expensive, coming in at a hefty $249.99, but the details on the ark itself are immaculate. Sideshow Collectibles started taking pre-orders today through their official newsletter, but I can only imagine that they’ll be opening the pre-orders up to everyone else in due time. You’ll want to keep an eye on their website for additional information. In the meantime, you can sign up for the newsletter here.

Indiana Jones and the Japanese TV Station Mascot

Posted by Michael Pinto on Feb 22, 2010 in Japanese TV

OHK the mascot for the Okayama Broadcasting Co.The above ever so cute promo for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull features the official mascot for the Okayama Broadcasting Co. Apparently their mascot always exclaims Oh! in any situation including running away from a giant ball at an archeology site. There’s something so charming about the low quality animation being used on this spot which contrasts so well with a high budget Hollywood film trailer: Read more…
