More "Indiana Jones"

According to Disney's Lucasfilm, the next "Indiana Jones" movie, to be directed by Steven Spielberg, from a screenplay by David Koepp, starring Harrison Ford, will be released July 10, 2020, starring Harrison Ford. "There is only going to be one actor playing 'Indiana Jones' and that’s Harrison Ford," said Spielberg. "The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end...":

Asked if he sees his studio creating many more 'Indiana Jones' features, Disney CEO Bob Iger, said "Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of 'Star Wars', but I see making more. It won't be just a one-off..."

"I didn't want to do it without Steven," said Ford about reprising his role in the new film as 'Indiana Jones'.

"And I didn't want to do it without a really good script. And happily we're working on both.

Oscars 2018: Why Steven Spielberg (‘The Post’) shouldn’t be counted out after DGA snub

Oscars 2018: Why Steven Spielberg (‘The Post’) shouldn’t be counted out after DGA snub
Those ready to discount Steven Spielberg‘s chances of reaping an Oscar nomination for directing “The Post” after his surprising DGA snub should take a deep breath. He could still be recognized by the notoriously esoteric directors branch of the academy, which often diverges from the choices of the more populist guild. One of the DGA slate — Guillermo del Toro (“The Shape of Water”), Greta Gerwig (“Lady Bird”), Martin McDonagh (“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri”), Christopher Nolan (“Dunkirk”), and Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) — could easily find themselves left out of the Oscar race in place of Spielberg.

Spielberg’s omission was especially shocking given his popularity at the guild. He’s won their Best Director prize three times (“The Color Purple” in 1985, “Schindler’s List” in 1993, and “Saving Private Ryan” in 1998) and contended for “Jaws” (1975), “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” (1977), “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981), “E.T.: The

Alan Silvestri’s Avengers Theme, and That Infinity War Trailer

Matt Taylor on the music of Avengers: Infinity War trailer…

On September 12, 2016, YouTube channel ‘Every Frame a Painting’ published a video entitled The Marvel Symphonic Universe. In it, channel creators Tony and Taylor interview members of the public around Vancouver, asking them to sing theme songs from famous movies, in particular the themes of Star Wars, Harry Potter, and James Bond. Unsurprisingly, the themes are nailed by the public. They are then asked to sing any song from a Marvel movie. Here, everyone is stumped. Tony and Taylor wonder why this is, and in the video essay that follows, they put it down to three reasons:

1) The idea of safety; if we see something funny or sad, this is reflected in the music we hear

2) Distractions; some excellent pieces of music are covered by things such as narration

3) Much of the music doesn’t evoke an emotional response; it’s

Watch: Stellar Shot-by-Shot Breakdown of the 'Raiders' Desert Chase

Looking for a bit of inspiration about how to make a timeless action scene? Watch this stellar shot-by-shot breakdown video of the "Desert Chase" scene from Spielberg's Raiders of the Lost Ark, made by Greek editor / filmmaker Antonios Papantoniou. Papantoniou makes many of these shot-by-shot breakdowns, but this is one of the best videos for a truly iconic action scene. The chase occurs in Raiders roughly halfway through when the Nazis try to take off with the Ark, and Indy (Harrison Ford) goes after them. This is a very intense, detailed breakdown discussing literally every last aspect - the shots, lenses, movements, everything. Dang, after this video, I just want to watch all the Indiana Jones films in a back-to-back marathon. Classics. Thanks to Phil Szostak via Twitter for the tip on this. Video direct from Vimeo.

Incredibly Cool Indiana Jones Trilogy Triptych Poster Art

Artist Enter Gabz has teamed up with Lucasfilm and Bottleneck Gallery to create an amazing triptych poster for George Lucas and Steven Spielberg's Indiana Jones trilogy. Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Temple of Doom, and The Last Crusade are all such great films and if you're a fan, this is a poster that you'll want to get your hands on.

The 36 x 24-inch regular version (above), is available now through 11:59pm Est Sunday and you can buy it here. The gallery will print as many as are sold and it will cost you $50. There’s also a variant edition (below) which was limited to 250 print and it's already sold out.

It's nice that they didn't force Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull on there. We've got a fifth Indiana Jones movie coming out in 2020 with Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford returning and I won't lie.

Did You Know that “Temple of Doom” is a Prequel to “Raiders of the Lost Ark?”

Apparently Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a prequel to Raiders of the Lost Ark. Who knew? It has a lot to do with the fact that George Lucas and Steven Spielberg didn’t want two Indiana Jones movies in which the Nazis were the bad guys. That’s kind of smart really except that they did in fact make another story concerning the Nazis if you recall, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. The Nazis might not have had as critical as a role but they were still there front and center. In Tod however, which is set one

David Harbour Opens Up on What He Wants to See in Stranger Things Season 3

Stranger Things fans have got a long ways to go before we start seeing anything from Season 3. One day we'll start learning about what we can expect and we'll eventually see the series return to Netflix. That won't happen until 2019! In the meantime, all we can do is speculate what might happen and read about what the cast would like to see happen.

During a recent interview with Variety, David Harbour reveals what he hopes to see in Season 3. One of the main things is seeing the relationship between Sheriff Hopper and Joyce (Winona Ryder) explored more.

"I’ve been pretty vocal about how I love the dynamic between Joyce and Hopper, which I don’t feel like we got a lot of time to explore in Season 2. I just love that dynamic of these two lost people. I equate it to Jack Nicholson and Faye Dunaway in Chinatown or

Every Steven Spielberg Movie Ranked from Worst to Best

Steven Spielberg is a living legend. One of the reasons I love movies today is because of his films. When I was in third grade, I would do my homework on his biography, wanting to learn more about the person behind E.T., Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Jurassic Park. As I grew older, I got (wrongly) more jaded about his filmmaking, criticizing him for the sappy endings to some of his dramas and his reliance on making sure audiences always knew what to feel. Today, I see Spielberg for the true master and visionary that he is, and …

Has Film Declined In The 21st Century?

Tom Jolliffe on whether standards in film have dropped this century…

I’ve made passing reference to it before, but the tail end of the year always brings time for reflection, and I’ve often bemoaned the decline in important cinema being made in recent years. This is the stuff of miserable old git conversations in the pub. I’ve had a few with a couple of mates. We’re all hovering around the mid-30’s mark, so we’re not that old yet but we’ve constructed a faultless conclusion (beer led conclusions following much calculating are always faultless of course)…Film died somewhere in the late 90’s (Died is a little strong I admit). Likewise we’ve discussed exactly the same regarding music (I will say whatever groaning apathy I begin to find about modern film is nothing compared to the music industry now).

I’ve nailed the point of decline (for music,

Film Critics Pick Steven Spielberg’s Best Movies — IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: In honor of “The Post,” which is set to hit theaters on December 20th, what is Steven Spielberg’s best film?

E.T.” There is really no other filmmaker who portrays wonder and innocence quite like Spielberg. While he’s done many great movies, “E.T.” not only captures the purity and curiosity of youth, but its beautiful effects and simple observations implore all of us to stop and take notice of the world around us and humanity itself.

Here we look at 10 things you never new About Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

His name is Indiana but he was born in a different state.

His nickname may be Indiana, but Doctor Jones originated in a different state altogether: Hawaii! Longtime pals George Lucas and Steven Spielberg were on vacation when they kicked around the idea for Raiders of the Lost Ark, a swashbuckling homage to the old movie serials that also inspired Star Wars. Spielberg was thinking of maybe directing a Bond film, but made Raiders instead.

Who else could have worn that fedora?
