Indiana Jones Meets the Mayans
The highly anticipated release of the new Indiana Jones film is almost here. Masses of people are downloading the teaser on the official film website.
Following in the tradition of the spiritual themes of the first three films in the series, this Indy adventure features the quest for Mayan crystal skulls.
The apocalyptic crystal skulls are thought to be imbued with powers given to the Mayans from an alien civilization, and Indiana is on a quest to capture them before they fall into the wrong hands.
This Mayan twist should be juicy. Also, Indy's old love interest from Raiders, Karen Allen, is back, as well as a new sidekick, Shia LaBeouf (Transformers). Indy's new adult male counterpart is played by bad-ass Ray Winstone, and the evil protagonist is played by Cate Blanchett.
