    And somewhere deep inside, I got a little giddy feeling.

    Next year is gonna be great. Indy, Dark Knight, Bond 22 to name but a few.

        Eh... the poster doesn't do anything for me. Looks like the packaging for the action figure.

        But I'm sure they'll come up with something swell soon...

          Awesome.

          Now that is a movie poster!

          It's almost bizarre to be looking at a poster to a new Indy movie after so long.

            Am I the only one who thinks that passing over Frank Darabont in favor of David Koepp was a dumb idea?

              Where's his walker? I don't see that anywhere on the poster.

                For better or worse, what George Lucas wants, George Lucas gets.

                That said, there were some posts from "Moriarty" at Ain't It Cool News a while back that suggested many elements from Darabont's script made it into Koepp's, so....

                  What's everyone getting so excited about? Temple of Doom has to be one of the biggest disappointments in movie history... a truly unwatchable crapfest of biblical proportions. The Last Crusade was merely so-so.

                        I wouldn't go as far as RoS, but I will say that while I remember most parts of Raiders vividly, I only recall only a few bits from Temple of Doom...

                        ... and pretty much nothing at all from The Last Crusade. I only recall that it seemed by-the-numbers.

                          None of the sequels could top RAIDERS. I doubt this one will, either, but Indiana Jones is such an iconic action figure (not to mention a HUGE part of my childhood) that I'm delighted he's returning for another outing...and arriving on my birthday, too!

                            Indy is one of the great all-time movie icons. He's a far more interesting character than James Bond and the sequels have never done him justice.

                            Lucas and Spielberg have done nothing but squander Indy's potential by getting him involved with pointless child sidekicks, dipsy love interests (except for Ravenwood) and a remarkably boring father/son subplot.

                              Temple of Doom is absolutely not an unwatchable crapfest.

                              When it first came out and I saw it in the theaters, I loved it. Okay, I found the "cute kid" angle a tad annoying, but otherwise, I loved it.

                              I saw it again a couple of years ago and I still loved it. Excellent bad guy, lots of hokey laughs, some genuine thrills.
