Indiana Jones 4 is Running for 140 Minutes!
16/04/08, 2:55pm EST

Hollywood elsewhere is reporting that Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is being prepped for duplication and prepared for its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. With a running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes this will be Indy's longest "running" time. Here is how Indy:s previous adventures clocked in:

- Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981) 1 hour and 55 minutes
- Temple of Doom (1984) 1 hour and 58 minutes
- Last Crusade (1989) 2 hours and 7 minutes
- Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) 2 hours and 20 minutes

This running time adheres to Indy's co-creator, George Lucas' previous testaments to a movie's length saying that they should run no longer than two hours and 20-25 minutes or it gets too much for an audience to sit still. Hence, the Star Wars saga did not go the Lord of the Rings route with 3 hour plus running times.

Indyfans will surely not care if they sit a little longer in their seats t watch Indy's return to the big screen. Besides as with all of Indy's big screen adventures, they sit on the edge of their seats because of all the thrills and action flying towards them -- it's almost like a new kind of 3-D "dangerous, death-defying, delightful daredevil" entertainment!

Fans had better order the large bag of popcorn for this trip!
