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.
