I'm looking forward to this new film, as I've thoroughly enjoyed the previous three films. What I'm really interested in is how they will adapt the film to suit Harrison Ford, because he's got to be getting on a bit now and I doubt that he can get away with pulling too many stunts.
Also I wonder who he will compete against to find the relics? Its doubtful that he'll be racing against the Nazi's in the pre-war years anymore, mostly because today's generation probably won't know what the National Working Socialist Party was.
Read in Empire this morning that the plot will be based on Von Daniken's "Chariots Of The Gods". Shia LaBouf plays a character called Mutt, and is supposed to be the son of one of Indy's mentors. A possible plot twist is that his mother is Marion from the first film( who Indy played hoochy coochy with on the tramp steamer at the end of Ark). Given that Indiana himself was given his name from the families pet dog.............
The films is going to be set in the 1950's and the baddies are going to be the russians, so they can get away with Indy looking a little older and the make-up department will do the rest. Will find the link to show.
Cant find the link to at the mo, but 90% chance it will be set during the 50's, Indy born in 1899 and with rumours ahoy it will have a cold war theme to it.
A modern legend claims that there are 13 crystal skulls worldwide, of which five have actually been found, which have mystical powers and are of ancient origin. Such claims remain unproven. New skulls carved from crystal are made and sold regularly.
People who believe in the psychic power of crystal skulls say that the skulls are a center of radiant psychic energy and have the power to increase happiness and improve peopleâ€™s lives just by being held, handled and spoken with; others have suggested that crystal skulls can be used like crystal balls, to aid divination.
The healing and supernatural powers of crystal skulls have never been scientifically established. The scientific community at large has found no evidence of any unusual phenomena associated with the skulls nor any reason for further investigation.
