I don't think they'll use the collapsing bonfire scene, after the Texas A&M University 1999 tragedy that killed 11 students. But I like the bit with the float. Apparently the chicken wire stays on Indy's car the rest of the chase. It's like something from Animal House.
In terms of Spoilers - The Genie is out of the bottle folks! Its NOT going back in!
This was inevitable! They are shooting on location in public places. Needing the cooperation of locals and business owners. There is no way they can control leaks in this situation. That is why we have heard so little official details. Because so much is bound to be leaked and together we would have a pretty complete idea of what the movie is about -in the broad strokes at least.
If anyone is concerned about seeing spoilers they are going to have stop using the internet for the next year. Or at least do not seek out any info an the movie.
Maybe its time two Indy 4 forums are created, a spoiler-free forum and a spoiler forum.
1957.....that would mean Indy 4 takes place 19 years after Last Crusade...So both Indy and Harrison have aged the same amount of years...Harrison will still be playing himself about 7 years younger though.
I'm guessing part of the movie deals with Indy considering retiring, but is somehow either forced or lured into going on another adventure...
I have to say I have been drooling over any and all Indy 4 news, but, now that I'm beginning to read some very specific stuff... I'm not so sure I want to know. I think the things I would actually like to know in the months leading up to the trailer are: the rest of the cast, a pic of Ford all decked out, (maybe) the mcguffin... and perhaps the occasional grainy pic of something you can't quite make out on set.
I don't know what the people are waiting for, I feel that more or less "everything is alright", news are being written like it would be about bananas (what will be left for the official site?)... Steven Spielberg should be warned (though George Lucas did it...) immediately, because this deep leak of informations (all the more if also regarding another scenes later...) will ruin not just the movie-the surprise, but also the years full of mysteries we've been waiting for it...
That's not just mouths of the people who have something to do with the preparing of the location for the shooting or Spielberg's spokesperson Marvin Levy - but also mouths of people who weren't and aren't allowed to talk about it... I doubt people of streets of New Haven etc. are here to romance together about details of scenes creating the Movie...
(though for example
could be a tip, because it's one of the types of transport that haven't appeared in any film about Indiana Jones yet, if I'm not mistaken now...)
I really doubt this is a kind of sweet dessert or a way of serving it Spielberg has in his mind... we should try to help him... he's doing it also for us and he hadn't to...
I showed the informations from the article as a fact, that this is just lit up already, tear to that... but that's not all I've left here...

All I know is, this is exactly what it felt like when reports first started coming in about Episode I. Everyone was just giddy to get the first scoop, the first photo, the first everything. Whatever that means, I don't know, but this is just what it felt like in '98.
I doubt the whole story will get leaked this way. The Yale chase is the most public scene they've ever shot, except maybe for Venice. The rest of the movie will probably be indoors, on sets, and in the middle of nowhere.
The big leak is: 1957! Elvis! Sputnik! Gotta hit the history books...
It seems both Last Crusade and Indy4 take place 50 years before they were filmed, Last Crusade was shot in 1988-50=1938 and Indy4 is being shot in 2007-50=1957. That makes Indiana Jones 58 years old and if Sean Connery is in it his character would be 85 years old, both of these ages according to the Indy timeline on this site (Indiana born in 1899 and Henry Sr. born in 1872). http://www.theraider.net/information.../childhood.php

Here is an interesting fact about 1957 - Humphrey Bogart died that year. Harrison Ford has often been compared to Bogart. Also Indiana Jones was inspired by some of Bogart's roles. It would be appropriate if there is a small passing reference to this in the film. Maybe Indy saying he was fan.
