George Lucas and Steven Spielberg created Raiders of the Lost Ark with the intention to pay homage to the classic adventure serials of the early cinema. With the huge commercial and critical success of Raiders in 1981, Lucas and Spielberg made two more Indiana Jones films. And just like Raiders they also captured the spirit of the action and excitement of the classic adventure serials and movies.

But the Indiana Jones Trilogy did not only paid homage to classic adventure series, they also redefined the adventure genre. More adventure films and series were made in the same spirit as the Indy films, and not only in the 80s. Hollywood still produces films that are influenced by Raiders of the Lost Ark today and those films still continue to break box office records. And the Indiana Jones influences did not only stay in the film world but also spread out to Computer Games, Comic Books, Animated series, and much more.

Raiders of the Lost Ark was inspired by the classic adventure series and now it inspires Hollywood and other entertainment mediums. The Indiana Jones Trilogy was made by people who looked up to the first big film directors like Howard Hawks and David Lean and today successful filmmakers like M. Night Shyamalan look up to Spielberg because of Raiders. And most of those new entertainers can't resist to refer to one of their favorite heroes.

With this section we would like to show you as much films and other that have influenced the Indiana Jones Trilogy in a way, tell you what films are influenced by the Indiana Jones Trilogy and point out hidden and not so hidden references to Indiana Jones in other films, games, etc.

Enjoy!
