After a daring mission to rescue Han Solo from Jabba the Hutt, the rebels dispatch to Endor to destroy a more powerful Death Star. Meanwhile, Luke struggles to help Vader back from the dark side without falling into the Emperor's trap.
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
John Hurt wanted to read the script before he signed on. He had previously heard about actors who signed on to a Steven Spielberg film before reading the script, since "Spielberg - you know, GOD - was doing it!" Hurt replied, "'Well, I need to have a little bit of previous knowledge even if God is doing it." The filmmakers sent a courier with the script from Los Angeles over to London, who gave the script to Hurt at three in the afternoon, reclaimed it at eight that evening and flew back the following day. Ray Winstone mentioned a similar experience on a British chat show: he was asked if he wanted to be in the film, and he requested to read the script. He described a young man in a suit coming to his house, drinking tea while he read it, then getting on the next plane back to America. He also noted that once the film was over, they had to give the scripts back. See more »
In the opening scenes the sun is high in the sky. When the convoy turns off the highway to the right, the sun is very low, either daybreak or sunset. The next scene is back to high sun. 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 »
Have not read all the comments (there are certainly a lot!), but just the first bunch makes me feel like I saw a different movie from the rest of the viewers. I went with the expectation that Indy is now much older and things wouldn't be quite as quickly paced. I found that both Indy and Marion look great for their ages. The bits of gray hair and wrinkles make them seem more real and I was in great admiration for their acting skills which I enjoyed as I did with the other three. There were so many little moments of fun and enjoyment, as well as lots of action and that splendid music, that I liked it enough to see it more than once. I guess I was not expecting perfection, or doubting that the characters, after all these years, would be older and a little slower. Granted, the adventures of the other three were perhaps a bit more exciting.......but I loved the premise of Indy having a son he didn't know about, of him still being in love with Marion even after all these years, and having the answers for getting out of the tight spots which was learned through years of adventures, while his new-found son learned from him. I liked all the characters pretty much, except for the role Cate Blanchett played. She was interesting, but not very threatening. Since it was the 50's, it had to be Russian, not German, so that was appropriate. I, for one will be looking forward to getting a copy of it to watch again as I have the others. I was not disappointed.
