For years Steven Spielberg didn’t embrace DVD and all of his classic films stayed on VHS only. Eventually, he had a change of heart. The same can be said for the DVD to Blu-ray conversion. Spielberg was originally tentative to allow his films onto the new high definition format but has since changed his mind. Jurassic Park is already out. Jaws is on the way, as is E.T. The Extra Terrestrial and, most likely, others are too. The most exciting release, though, may be the set of Indiana Jones films which will be released on Blu-ray September 18.

A new trailer for the release has come online showing a bunch of fantastic behind the scenes footage, some of which was reportedly not on the DVD box set released several years back. Check out the trailer below. Read More »

Any artist who can graphically represent the Indiana Jones films in an interesting visual way, and also manage to completely ignore Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is a-okay in my book. That’s why you should check out the  following trilogy of posters by French graphic designer Maxime Pecourt after the jump. Read More »

Indiana Jones was famous for saying that things belong in a museum, so he probably would have loved a museum that not only traveled, but had his name on it. Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

Indiana Jones and the Adventures of Archeology, presented by National Geographic, is a traveling exhibit that features original props from the four films as well as an interactive tour of actual sites shedding light on the Holy Grail and Arc of the Covenant and much more. It recently opened at the Montreal Science Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and will remain there until September 18. Then, it’ll embark on a tour of Europe and Asia. So, as of now, this is the only North American stop. Read More »

We’ve featured many of artist Eric Tan‘s creations in past Cool Stuff columns: we’ve spotlighted his work for past Pixar productions, X-Men, among other things.

New Indiana Jones 4 Poster is a Fake

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

A new Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull movie poster has popped up over at Collider, but is it real? Nope (to be fair Collider siad it could be possibly fan made). Just a cool fan created throwback to the popular Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade poster done by Drew Struzan.

The design looks almost identical to the Last Crusade artwork by Struzan, even down to the specks on the right edge.


When we originally posted this story, I was very skeptical of the movie poster’s authenticity. Thinking it was cool enough to post even if it was a fan creation, I put the question out to the /Film readers: Is the poster Real or Fake? And we got our answer… As it turns out, the Harrison Ford photo comes from the cover of the new Empire Magazine.
