In news that should surprise absolutely no one, Disney has no plans to end the Indiana Jones franchise after the upcoming fifth film. They may, however, have plans to reboot it. CEO Bob Iger says while we shouldn’t expect a Star Wars-style Indiana Jones universe, the series might head in a new “direction.”
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here. At the moment, Disney is still developing Indiana Jones 5. The studio has already announced that Steven Spielberg will be back to direct, with Harrison Ford starring and John Williams scoring. Now we’ve learned that George Lucas will be back as well, serving as an executive producer. Read More »

When Steven Spielberg sits down for a full and proper interview, it is our duty as movie fans to pay attention. The greatest filmmaker in modern Hollywood history can often feel a little enigmatic (he doesn’t bother with things like DVD commentaries) and getting any kind of window into his process and life feels invaluable. So the arrival of two new profiles on Spielberg, his work, and his various companies is a cause for celebration – both stories are filled with wonderful anecdotes, insights and even a tease or two.
Oh, and Spielberg promises that he won’t be killing off Indiana Jones in the upcoming fifth movie.

There will be three different editions of the print available for sale on June 2, and you can check them out after the jump. Read More »
For years we’ve been hearing about Raiders!: The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made. The fan film at the center of the documentary is famous for being a passionate shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark created by some of the most loyal and dedicated Indiana Jones fans, and now we’re going to learn every gritty detail about how it was made.
Chris Strompolos, Eric Zala and Jayson Lamb began working on Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation when they were just kids, but they wouldn’t finish it until 20 years later. Raiders! tells the story of how they made their film, lost their aspirations to become filmmakers, and reunited to finish the movie once and for all once it became a cult hit on the web.

That’s right, I’m talking about nuking the fridge, the scene so bad that it became the new way of describing “jumping the shark” in pop culture.
But what if I told you that there was an intriguing fan theory going around that may actually make that scene forgivable? Does that sound like something you might be interested in? Find out more about this Indiana Jones theory below. Read More »
