Paramount has released yet another new movie trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Before you get too excited, I must warn you that this trailer is pretty similar to the last one. It actually took my friend Neil from FSR to point out that it was in fact new. And it even took a few plays to spot the differences. One of the shots that is worth noting involves a plane flying over the Nazca Lines in Peru (seen above).

[potential spoiler speculation] According to wikipedia, the Nazca Lines are a series of geoglyphs located in the Nazca Desert. They are believed to have been created by the Nazca culture between 200 BC and AD 700. There are hundreds of individual figures, ranging in complexity from simple lines to stylized hummingbirds, spiders, monkeys, fishes, sharks, llamas and lizards, said to be visible only from the sky. Some have speculated that the Nazca Lines may be evidence of early contact between humans and aliens. CHUD reported a while back that the new film takes cues from Erich von Daniken’s Chariots of the Gods. So how does this fit into the Crystal Skull storyline? We’ll have to wait and see.
