Today we celebrate the first birthday of Indiana Jones and
the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull!
Indiana Jones 4
poster by Drew Struzan.
Exactly one year ago the fourth Indiana Jones film was released
worldwide to become on of the biggest blockbusters of 2008! More
than 12.000 release prints were distributed including dubbed versions
in 25 foreign languages. To date no film had a a larger distribution
in Paramount Pictures history!
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull became
the most successful film of 2008 internationally and third best
film of the year in the USA. Globally, it was the second highest
grossing film of 2008! Only The Dark Knight did better
Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is currently the 23rd highest
grossing film of all time, both domestically and worldwide.
To celebrate I have restored the once "lost" Indy
4 screenplays page
which has now been expanded with the final screenplay by David Koepp
and the famous rejected draft written by Frank Darabont!
And that's not all. The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull Screenshots
page is also finally online with not less than 500
DVD screen captures! Which is 100 more than with the previous
Why not Blu-ray screens you ask? Taking Blu-ray screen captures
is a lot more difficult as the standard player programs simply don't
allow it. Blu-ray quality screenshots will be for sometime in the
future when the complete Indiana Jones Tetralogy is available on
the format. (Which might actually happen by the end of this year.)
Today is a good day to watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom
of the Crystal Skull on DVD or Blu-ray... yet again.
