Fedoras Ready? Indiana Jones Returns

Posted by: Loren Coleman on November 30th, 2007

Indiana Jones

The forthcoming film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom and the Crystal Skull is set to open May 22, 2008. Cryptozoologists, dust off your fedoras and keep informed here. (Please be forewarned, if you are at work or in a library, the opening page has loud theme music.)

Set in 1957, the new movie centers around the mysterious crystal skulls (a well-known Fortean mystery), and pits Indiana Jones against agents of the Soviet Union.

Because there is such a “closed door” policy on the plot, the only sure thing seems to be the diversity of the settings: Marshall College, Mexico, South America, and the Soviet Union.

Whether any cryptids will be part of the plot is unknown. The next Lara Croft movie reportedly has a scene involving an attack of Yetis, but it is unclear what natural terrors will be thrown at Indiana Jones.

Nevermind, after almost two decades absence, the prediction is that the new, in great shape “old” Indiana Jones is going to be a marketing “monster” with a big footprint.

    I’m already in line!

  2. Bob Michaels responds:

    I have three Fedora’s all dusted off and ready to go.

  3. DARHOP responds:

    Heck with the fedora, I’m breaking the whips out!

  4. gridbug responds:


    It’s been hinted at that aliens (of the Pleiadian Gray variety, think Close Encounters of the Third Kind) may factor into the story, probably as part of the final act. Conjecture at this point, and not specifically crypto in nature, but an interesting possibility. 😀

    ….so WHY is it post on cryptomundo?

    “just in case” there’s a cryptid?

  6. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Yeah gridbug, there seems to be some mentioning of Area 51 in the plot… *cringing with excitement*

    Man, where do I buy a fedora??!!!

    ‘Cause I already have the whip 😉

  7. Dragonheart responds:

    I’ve waited and waited and waited, and finally the movie is in post-production, yeah. I’m a big Indy-fan and can’t wait to see the movie (hopefully my Adventurebilt Fedora will arrive before May… :D).

    Harrison Ford is in great shape, I definitely want to look like that if I’m 65.

    And well, I doubt that we’ll see any kind of cryptid in this movie, but you never know.

    “Snakes…why did it have to be snakes?”

    because we all love a good hat

    hahaha large chunks of my childhood just flashed back playing indiana jones watching the films and generally running around causing chaos

    cant wait cryptids/aliens or none of them 😛

  10. Hawkeye responds:

    This will be opening day viewing for me no matter what its about

  11. cmgrace responds:

    OH MY GOD! I can’t wait! I have been checking IMDB for info on this movie for about 6 months now. I already have the box set of the 3 originals and can’t wait to update my DVD collection.

  12. Bigfootnut99 responds:

    Nothing is certain in the way of plot details. All of the alien and Area 51 talk is just rumors. I follow every piece of information and news I can on Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, and I highly doubt that any cryptids will be featured. Indy is about history, artifacts, and action, not mysterious, unidentified animals. Look at the message boards at TheRaider.net to see what I’m talking about.
