The other shoe has finally dropped. Disney and Paramount have come to an agreement over the other big franchise most people connect with Lucasfilm: Indiana Jones. More important than the actual deal, however, is what's implied by the terms -- that we'll be seeing another Indiana Jones movie before too long. After all, surely that's the only reading to take away from the notion that Disney will control "all future films" in the franchise, with Paramount retaining the rights to the four existing movies (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last

Disney and Paramount have reached an agreement for the future of the Indiana Jones franchise, giving Disney control over all future films. Paramount retains rights to the first four films and "will receive a financial participation on any future films that are produced and released," says the statement from the studios. Photos: '80s Action Stars: Where Are They Now? The first four adventure films in the Harrison Ford-starring franchise -- 1981's Raiders of the Lost Ark, 1984's Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989's Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the

The Walt Disney Studios and Paramount Pictures have finally reached a deal over development, distribution and marketing of the Indiana Jones franchise. These negotiations have been ongoing since Disney purchased LucasFilm from George Lucas nearly two years ago. In the new arrangement, Disney takes over ownership expenses for any new films and projects. Paramount will retain distribution rights to the current slate of films -- Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull -- which includes releases such asthe individual Blu-rays for the first three films that became available this past November. At this time there's no word yet if Disney is actively pursuing a fifth installment to »

Here's a little bit of Raiders of the Lost Ark trivia for you! In order to get a PG rating for the film, the MPAA asked Steven Spielberg to add more flames to hide the exploding head of the Nazi character Belloq at the end of the movie after he opens the ark. The photo above gives us a little glimpse of what the exploding head looked like before the flames were added.
Originally, Spielberg wanted Belloq’s head to explode on its own, but that was just too graphic for the MPAA. You have to remember this was before there was a PG-13 rating. The PG-13 rating wasn't created until Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
I'm not sure what makes a fiery exploding head more tame than just a regular exploding head, especially when there are already disturbing melting faces, but that's the MPAA for you! »

Under increasing pressure over its threshold for violence in PG-13 films, the Motion Picture Association of America defended its often-criticized rating system on Wednesday.
A study by the Annenberg Public Policy Center and the Ohio State University recently published in the medical journal Pediatrics found that gun violence in the most popular PG-13 releases since 1985 has tripled in frequency. The number of scenes featuring gun violence in PG-13 films, the study found, has come to rival or even surpass the rate of such sequences in R-rated movies.
The association’s ratings board is no stranger to criticism, but the study »

Thn are very pleased to announce that the legendary Indiana Jones is set to have the first three films re-released individually in high definition when they arrive on Digital HD November 19th and on Blu-ray with a digital copy available through iTunes December 17th from Lucasfilm Ltd. and Paramount Home Media Distribution.
I think it’s safe to say that these are some of the most recognisable action-adventure films in the genre since it first opened in 1991 and, I for one, never tire of the trilogy – I even would give the fourth an honourable mention for the sake of nostalgia. While you’re here, you should also check out details for the MediCinema charity screening and auction that’s coming up very soon in London and is a brilliant event to get involved with, find all the details by clicking here.

I'll never forget it: I was nine years old, at a sleepover with a group of schoolmates, and one of the girls produced her older brother's VHS copy of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom from her pink Hello Kitty bag like so much contraband, to the tune of wide-eyed gasps and giggles. This being the film primarily responsible for birthing the PG-13 rating, we were woefully below the appropriate age for such viewing material - and we knew it. Tentatively, our young hostess popped the film into her tape player and we settled in to discover what all he fuss was about. And one infamous, heart-stuttering sacrificial scene silenced our curiosity. The rest of the girls seemed delighted by the horror of the decidedly un-Spielbergian torture sequence, wherein a man's heart is...

1984 was a pretty insane year for movies with "Beverly Hills Cop," "Ghostbusters," "Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom," "Police Academy" and more all landing in theaters. But few matched the pure zaniness of Joe Dante's "Gremlins." It took the idea of getting a new pet and turned it into something truly monstrous, and moreover, it brought together the B-movie leanings of Joe Dante inside the blockbuster structure of producer Steven Spielberg, creating something truly memorable. So let's take a little trip down memory lane... LoSceicco1976 has pointed us in the direction of a vintage featurette "Gremlins: Behind The Scenes." We're not sure what it was put together for—perhaps a VHS release of some kind or TV special—but fans will surely get a kick out of the footage from the set, interviews with Dante, Spielberg, star Zach Galligan and more, and really just getting a vibe of »

Interview Ryan Lambie 8 Oct 2013 - 06:19
With a career stretching back to the 1960s, British film producer Robert Watts played a key role in making some of the most influential films of the 1970s. Just a quick glance over his credits as a producer reveals an extraordinary career, which includes Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope and its sequels, the first three Indiana Jones films, and the groundbreaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
Those films are but the tip of the iceberg; before Star Wars, he worked on two James Bond films - Thunderball and You Only Live Twice - collaborated with Stanley Kubrick on 2001: A Space Odyssey, and, in films such as Man In The Middle, Darling and Papillon, worked with such legendary actors as Robert Mitchum, »
It's been awhile since we had a chat about a good, old-fashioned adventure movie. So, I was thinking why not bring out one of the heavy hitters in the genre? A true man's man of a hero. This week, we will chat about the one and only Indiana Jones in the classic movie, Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom! We are coming up on the two year anniversary since yours truly began hosting The JoBlo Sunday Night Movie Chat, so you can expect some great movies to be discussed in the coming weeks! »

Cakes have gotten pretty elaborate over the past few years, as anyone who watches Cake Boss can attest. I’ve always wondered how I’d feel if someone brought me a really elaborate movie-based cake – because there’s a part of me that always thinks “that’s so awesome – we can’t possibly eat it!” I suspect this would be my reaction if anyone ever gifted me with today’s culinary delight – a monkey cake inspired by Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (and probably not Faces of Death, but that would work as well). Remember when Indy goes for dinner and they have some delicious chilled monkey brains (served in the handy take-home souvenir container of the monkey’s skull, no less) for dessert? Well, now you can...

Welcome to Issue 12 of ‘The Marvelous Da7e!’
Real quick mission statement: this column is for discussion of superhero movie news and superhero movies. Titular allegiance aside, this sphere includes non-Marvel properties.
This week: What we can learn by defining Howard The Duck.
Pardon me, but I’ve been re-watching Howard The Duck. The 1986 live-action creature-feature “sci-fi/comedy,” PG-rated zoophilia and notorious flop.
It’s not a good movie. It’s an enjoyable movie, but not because of what is on screen…okay, scratch-that. It has the most physically attractive appearence of Lea Thompson on film and this time, she’s not the mother of our main character, so you can totally lust after her up until the end where it seems like she’s actually going to have sex with this duck.
Ducks, who – by the way – are basically rapists across the board. But that’s neither here nor there. »
I’ve got to hand it to Joss Whedon. Rather than letting his remarkable success with The Avengers go to his head, he’s pretty much consistently used the public scrutiny to discuss everything from female roles in the media to the problems of movies today. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly (via /Film), Whedon touched upon an issue that many critics have mentioned but no directors have yet really cared to address: pastiche and self-referentiality.
Whedon mentions Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom as a prime example of what’s wrong with cinema today:
A movie has to be complete within itself; it can’t just build off the first one or play variations. You know that thing in Temple of Doom where they revisit the shooting trick? … That’s what you don’t want. And I feel that’s what all of culture is becoming — it’s becoming that moment. »

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon spoke about Steven Spielberg's 1984 film "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," stating that a particular scene is the perfect example of what's wrong with cinema and today's culture. "A movie has to be complete within itself; it can't just build off the first one or play variations," he said. "You know that thing in 'Temple of Doom' where they revisit the shooting trick? That's what you don't want. And I feel that's what all of culture is becoming - it's becoming that moment." The scene he's talking about goes back to "Raiders of the Lost Ark," in which Indy is about to fight a massive Arab swordsman, but instead decides to just shoot him. The scene was never meant to play out that way, but it did, and it became one of the highlights of the film. »
