Do your research.

Actually, maybe.

Not just this time, which actually turned out to be absolutely on the effing money, but a couple years back before, he was teasing some exciting news. https://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/384824531358990337

And several times he had other news in the close time after that, he made a point to reply to fans that wasn't the big announcement he was talking about. https://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/385418914336751618

And then about 2 months after that last reply, when the Indy rights situation got settled between Paramount and Disney, he posted "Long time coming, but here's the BIG NEWS." https://twitter.com/LeDoctor/status/409094696254730240

It could be interpreted that those earlier comments were both in reference to that agreement, which from his perspective could have been unexpectedly delayed.

(And yes, I've been sitting on this information since it happened. It is literally the only reason I've ever considered it relevant to share his teases here.)

1/2 the time. Seems like it's significant about 1/2 the time, which is the nature of Twitter. (Un)Thankfully for most of us here, his teaser turned out to be a positive turn for those that feel we need another Indy film with Harrison and Spielberg.

Spielberg is my favorite director of all time but he's lost his touch. He's not the same guy he was in the 80s. He's grown soft and been way too overly reliant on CGI. Based on his work from the last 10 years, I feel we'll be lucky if Indy V is only marginally better than KOTCS.

I just don't see Spielberg taking the risks he would have taken in the 80s and 90s. I think more realistically, we're in for another KOTCS. The story may be more fleshed out this time, and possibly more entertaining, but I'd bet anything the film will look almost exactly like KOTCS.

Speaking of which, his more recent films all look the same. They all have that same faded, washed out look. That's definitely not how his older films, or the original Indy trilogy looked. It's how KOTCS looked, and pretty much every film he's done since then. So I don't see any reason why Indy V will be any different, unfortunately.

I'm hoping for the best and willing to give Spielberg another shot at getting the series back on track, but based on history, I don't think it's likely at all. Not to mention how lazy and hyper over-reliant Hollywood is nowadays with CGI. Ugh. Why would any of this suddenly change now?

Completely agree.

I think the odds of Spielbgerg/Koepp/Kaminski delivering a better film than KOTCS are prohibitively long.

Sadly, I think you're right. Spielberg doesn't seem to have that same spark that he used to. I'm hoping one more Indy outing can bring out the best in him.

Very seriously, what is the motivation for any of the storytellers to add another chapter to the Indy Jones Saga? Part of the reason this movie will fail, is that unless they explore the reality of irrelevance and dying, there is no story motivating enough for a 70 year old man and a 70 year old director and a corporate conglomerate to tell, besides making money and or producing merchandise

Particularly aftter two consecutive entries which were intended to wrap up the series.

That's the catch. I understand that making these films is fun for them, but outside of that and the financial returns the hunger doesn't seem to be there.

These are the only odds:

If Spielberg is engaged, the chances are 100% that it will be a better movie.
If Spielberg is not engaged, the chances are 0%.

There's definitely an argument to be made that Spielberg really dropped the ball with Crystal Skull. Sure, Lucas' input didn't help, but the direction was nothing to write home about.

I think Ford was the only one of the three who still brought his A-game.

That's why the Ford factor still doesn't bother me at all when it comes to Indy 5. I'm way more concerned about the direction, artificial color grading, a forgettable soundtrack and unlikeable sidekicks.

KOTCS was & still is a fantastic movie though. I think the biggest issue many had with it was the unfamiliarity with the 1950s setting & forced elements like Mutt & Marion.

Neither should have been in the movie really but once Connery had decided he was retired forever Lucas had to change the script concept to Indy & Mutt as he arrogantly assumed all along Connery would take the extended cameo role.

Connery would have returned if the role was worth it. They should have written a bigger role for Connery. Having the character die onscreen would have been very emotional.

I agree, I still really like KotCS, even if it's the worst of the four. I just wish they'd gone with City of the Gods instead...

There's a lot to love about KOTCS, but also a lot of total brainfart ideas that should never have been filmed.

When I see complaints about KOTCS, the 50s setting is usually very low on the list (if at all.) Even if people weren't a huge fan of that time period for an Indy film, it doesn't really affect the movie THAT much, particularly once they get to South America. And that's what I'm hoping for with Indy 5. I'm not a huge fan of the idea of Indy in the late 1960s, but if most of the movie takes place in some remote setting where the decade doesn't matter much, then it could work, provided the script and plot is solid, and Steven doesn't overboard with the silliness (not that Indy should ever be an extremely serious movie, but it shouldn't be downright goofy... at least not TOO often. The tone they managed to strike in Raiders was perfect.)
