Indiana Jones is back, as the cover story of Entertainment Weekly's
Summer Movie Preview!
In their new article entitled Indiana
Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull': The Untold Story
Entertainment Weekly investigates why the sequel took so long to
make, what to expect, and what Lucas, Spielberg, and Harrison Ford
think about living up to their own legends.
Nineteen years have passed since the last Indiana Jones movie
was released, making the fourth installment hitting theaters May
22 perhaps the most anticipated movie of the summer. However,
some people might not want to see a beloved action icon reaching
AARP eligibility. What does Ford have to say about that? "Yeah,
I’ve heard it," Ford says. "‘Aaaaw,
he’s older.’ Well, s---, yes. And by the way? So are
you. So…are…you! Take a look in the f---ing mirror!"
Regardless of the fans’ opinions, it’s certain that
they’re brimming with curiosity about the plot, which has
been on lockdown from the start. Indy sidekick Shia LaBeouf says
every page of his script had been bar-coded and watermarked to
discourage easy duplication. He says he was also given a hotline
number. If he needed to valet-park his car -- and was even thinking
of leaving the script in the backseat -- all he had to do was
dial the hotline and someone would come retrieve it. And what
if LaBeouf ever felt the urge to blab about the plot of the movie?
"The joke I had was that Steven had
snipers following me," he says, "and
if I ever slipped and gave up any tidbits, that was the end."
