At times there seems to be a stigma attached to movie sequels. A lot of the time they have no purpose other than to capitalize on the name recognition of their popular predecessor. But there are times where the sequels live up to what has come before, or even surpass it on some occasions. Take the jump and see which movies made the cut, and Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo sadly didn’t.
Press Release For the past thirty years, audiences around the world have followed Indiana Jones on his quests for treasure, adventure, fortune and glory. And now, Indiana Jones and the Adventure of Archaeology, a redefined modern exhibition experience, is coming to a museum near you. This innovative exhibition, made possible by Lucasfilm Ltd., presented by the National Geographic Society and produced by Montreal’s X3 Productions, will feature fascinating artefacts from the National Geographic Society and the Penn Museum, along with an extensive collection of Indiana Jones film materials from the Lucasfilm Archives. This first-of-its kind touring exhibition will be presented
After the fan backlash to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, one would think Speilberg and Lucas would be hesitant to jump back on the Indiana Jones franchise so soon. According to the New Zealand website, Stuff, the fifth Indiana Jones movie would feature Dr. Jones headed to the Bermuda Triangle, presumably to investigate the supernatural mysteries there. For now, the rumor has proved to be false, according to Frank Marshall, and his Twitter feed. The rumor about INDY 5 is completely false. Nothing has changed, we are not shooting next year and still in the research
After yesterday’s retro styled posters for Disney/Pixar’s UP!, I had a yearning for other retro art.Â It didn’t take me long to find Eric Tan’s work for the Indiana Jones series, which will blow your mind.Â Take the jump for Eric’s comments, and the final design.
Yesterday’s Art Appreciation Moment got me into a Star Wars kick, and I found this piece by Wynn Ryder.Â Wynn has a style all his own, yet I can’t help but think this is what it would look like if Scott Pilgrim Saved the Galaxy Far, Far Away… As a bonus, take the jump and see his take on Indiana Jones.
Why Dr. Jones, where have you been? I canâ€™t tell you when the last issue of Indiana Jones and the Tomb of the Gods was released, but it was long enough ago for me to look at this issue and say, â€œHello there, what do we have here?â€
I love Indiana Jones.Â Love the first three movies, the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on television, and the comic books.Â Just listen to the Major Spoilers Podcast about all things Indy, and it is clear nothing did more in my formative years than Dr. Jones cracking the whip, cracking wise, and cracking the heads of Nazis. While I liked Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, I didn’t care for Mutt Williams (aka Shia LaDoof) one bit.Â And the very hint that there might be a Mutt Williams franchise based off of this has me sick to my
Diamond Select Toys has unveild a new line of quarter scale figures at this year’s San Diego Comic Con.Â The figures will hit store shelves at the end of the year, with Darth Maul being the first figure.Â All figures are fully articulated, include a sound chip, and will sell for $80. Take the jump for some sweet images.
With the success of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls (i know someoneâ€™s going to disagree, but come on, $282 million ainâ€™t nothing to sneeze at), it was only a matter of time before Dark Horse came up with a new Indiana Jones series to ride the coat tails of success.Â While the movie adaptation was a bit awkward, the digest sized Indiana Jones Adventures Volume 1, rocks the house.

DeviantArt is a great place to find works by the talented (and not so talented) artists of the world. Fortunately, “Jolly Jack” falls into the talented category and scores bonus points for the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull dig. What is it about George Lucas’ ability to create a character(s) that bring up so much hate per generation? Be it Admiral Ackbar, Jar-Jar Binks, Howard the Duck (admittedly not created by Lucas, but destroyed by him none-the-less), and now CG Gophers, Lucas has done wonders in getting the fanboy community to stop fighting amongst themselves over
In this outing, the life and times of Henry Walton Jones, Jr. (because they named the dog Indiana) admiring his fine choice of leather accoutrements, examining what makes this icon tick, and once and for all, answering that music question: does he STAPLE that thing to his head? Itâ€™s an all-Indy slobberknocker, and yes, it had to be snakes, on this our sixteenth in a series, the Major Spoilers podcast is on the air! A MAJOR SPOILERS THANK YOU GOES OUT TO ERIC M. FOR MAKING ANOTHER DONATION IN THE MAJOR SPOILERS TIP JAR. A big Thank You goes out

Pictures is estimating that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will rake in an estimated $151 million by the end of the day today.Â That is with the projection of another $25 million in box office sale today. Once tallies are in for the entire Memorial Day frame through Monday, the iconic adventure sequel will be measured against marks such as the $151.1 million tally posted by last year’s “Spider-Man 3” in a best-ever weekend opening. Not bad for a 19 year old sequel, but according to many of you, the movie is awful.Â We’ll have our
