Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull premiered at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday. According to a Variety critic, "one of the most eagerly and long-awaited series follow-ups in screen history delivers the goods." Speaking after the premiere, executive producer/co-writer George Lucas said he has an idea for a fifth film with Shia LeBeouf's character in a more prominent role.

Lucas' next film is Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which will be released on August 15th and set up the Cartoon Network's series of the same name that will air later in the year. After the prequel trilogy, I don't know if I can stand to see Lucas do more Star Wars. The new Indy film is one thing because of the presence of Steven Spielberg, but Lucas on his own is another thing entirely.

Trufax: some people in fandom are completely insane when it comes to spoilers to the point where they freak out about things that aren't even actual spoilers.

i keep thinking Cate Blanchett is going to speak English with a German accent in the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull because Jones tends to go after Nazis, but, of course, the bad guys are Russian this time
