When Dr. Henry Jones, Sr. suddenly goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, eminent archaeologist Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr. must follow in his father's footsteps to stop the Nazis from getting their hands on the Holy Grail first.
A decidedly odd couple with ulterior motives convince Dr. Alan Grant to go to Isla Sorna (the second InGen dinosaur lab.), resulting in an unexpected landing...and unexpected new inhabitants on the island.
Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the Senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.
Three years into the Clone Wars, the Jedi rescue Palpatine from Count Dooku. As Obi-Wan pursues a new threat, Anakin acts as a double agent between the Jedi Council and Palpatine and is lured into a sinister plan to rule the galaxy.
During the Cold War, Soviet agents watch Professor Henry Jones when a young man brings him a coded message from an aged, demented colleague, Harold Oxley. Led by the brilliant Irina Spalko, the Soviets tail Jones and the young man, Mutt, to Peru. With Oxley's code, they find a legendary skull made of a single piece of quartz. If Jones can deliver the skull to its rightful place, all may be well; but if Irina takes it to its origin, she'll gain powers that could endanger the West. Aging professor and young buck join forces with a woman from Jones' past to face the dangers of the jungle, Russia, and the supernatural. Written by
Security throughout filming was very tight, with one of the measures to prevent information leaks, was to address the cast with false names in daily call sheets. In those call sheets for example, Harrison Ford was called "#", Cate Blanchett as "Mean Girl", and Karen Allen as "The Damsel". See more »
In the atomic test town, one front yard shows dummy children playing on a Slip 'n Slide. Wham-O introduced this product in 1961 but at the checkpoint it says they are in "Nevada 1957". See more »

The movie begins with the Lucasfilm logo, followed by the 1954 Paramount "VistaVision" logo (with the text "PARAMOUNT" instead of "A PARAMOUNT PICTURE" and "A Viacom Company" instead of "A Gulf+Western Company" below "PARAMOUNT"). Gulf+Western became Paramount Communications in 1989, then merged with Viacom in 1994. The Paramount logo then dissolves into a gopher mound. (The static version of the current Paramount logo is seen at the end of the movie.) See more »
I had the chance to watch the new Indiana Jones last night here in Germany as a preview. Much can be said about this movie, but it needs only four words to describe this film properly: INDIANA JONES IS BACK!!! Thank you Steven & George! When I watched the old Indiana Jones movies last week, I was a little frightened, because I thought the filmmakers would make the same mistakes as with "Star Wars" Episodes 1
3. Fortunately they did not. "Indy 4" stands in a clean row with the
first three parts: Evil villains, breathtaking action, a marvelous Harrison Ford, a good amount of humur, John William's extraordinary music and a nice "old fashioned" flair - that's what was presented to the audience and that's what I expected! Although there are more CGI-effects in the movie than the makers would admit, the effects are PART of the story and NOT THE REASON for it. (A mistake which destroyed my love for Star Wars!) A great adventure movie for the summer which will hopefully be loved by all the old fans and even hopefully will bring on a totally new generation of fans!
