The Indy one? Next month, with the release of the new movie.

The Star Wars one came out last year, for the 30th anniversary.

I haven't even seen the SW one down here. I wonder if the Indy one will turn up down here.

Thumbs up

I'm looking forward to this book. I was hoping for a hardback version but I'm sure the book will be made of quality material. Has anyone received the book?

Found it today, "used".

Found it today in Toronto on Yonge St, "used" for $19.00. ABC Books had 5 sterling copies of it, along with 5 copies of the hardcover KOTCS novelization sitting on their film shelf.
Fairly exciting. Classy book, too.

In the comments section, someone mentioned Amazon UK having the hardcover edition, but it's like $37 shipped. I think I'll contact Amazon or the publisher and see if the US site will offer the hardcover edition.

EDIT: Here is the hardcover item page at the US Amazon site. Sign up to be notified.

Nice! I hope it is released soon. I ordered the softcover, which will be released in a few days. I prefer the hardcover, however, I do not feel like waiting several months...

Are they seriously waiting several months to release that? I'd rather not have to buy the book now if a hardcover is coming out.

That is a great book!

As for the Indy book I can't wait to get this. I'll be buying mine on Friday!

I was out at lunch and saw the book...it is amazing! I forgot my book coupons so I didn't buy it but I glanced through it and I couldn't see anything that was left out. It had sections on all 4 movies and some of the neat things I saw was the whole cut fight with the Swordsman from Raiders in there as stills, pictures of the weapons, behind the scenes info on what went on before the movies even began filming, etc. I'm running home to get my coupons then going out to pick it up.

Really fascinating. One tidbit that jumped out at me during a quick skim is that after Lucas vetoed Frank Darabont's Indy IV script he started revising it himself, changing the title to Indiana Jones and the Phantom City of the Gods. (!!)

Personally I never want to see the word Phantom in the title of any George Lucas movie ever again. Scary sign that he seems to rather like it....

Picked this up yesterday @ Borders - Incredible. I haven't had a chance to read everything, but I skimmed through most of it and enjoyed a lot of the pictures/drawings. My understanding is that most of the behind-the-scenes info. in this book is all new, and it looks it, since I haven't seen most of it before.

Some initial observations:

- There is a lot of space spent on "Raiders" - great, since this is the best film, IMHO.

- The artwork/production paintings available in the "Raiders" section was fantastic - The Jim Steranko production paintings are especially cool - I had seen one of these before (of Indy standing in the desert), but none of the others.

- There is a surprising amount of space devoted to the upcoming KOTCS - interesting, since the film isn't officially out yet.

Stop it, you're scaring me too! What I don't understand is why they didn't just keep Frank Darabont as writer and ask him to make the changes they wanted? Instead of hiring a whole new writer? Indy IV would've been here in 2006 probably if they'd done that!

Got mine from Amazon today, and just like the "Star Wars"-one this one is fantastic as well. Tons and tons of great pictures (a lot of which I've never seen before, like poster-sketches by Drew Struzan), letters, notes and whatnot. I've avoided the "Crystal Skull"-section for now, since I'm finally gonna see the movie in about 18 hours, but although I would've preferred one book per film (as it's going to happen with the "Star Wars"-movies) this is probably the best look behind the scenes of the movies there's ever gonna be.

Is there any YIJC content? Is it covered at all?

There's only a few lines about it bridging the "Crusade" and "Skull"-chapters (and a small photo of Ford talking to Lucas on his Young Indy cameo-shoot)... but as I don't want to read any further, there might be more coming... though I doubt it.

There's a bit in the Raiders section showing a photo of a cut scene, which made it into the novelization. As Indy and Marcus are leaving Indy's classroom, they meet a student named Susan (played by Pola Churchill) who asks for a private conference with Dr. Jones.

Now, Susan is the female student who was at Indy's house in the infamous alternate version of the scene taking place there. So it's my guess that indeed, both versions of the Marcus-visiting-Indy scene were filmed, though only one made it to the screen. Larry Kasdan claimed in a recent interview that only one version was shot, but I'd guess based on the photo evidence that he was simply misinformed.

Would anyone who has this book care to elaborate on the progression of "skull" scripts? Darabont's, Nathanson's etc.?

Sure, no problem. They do not go into detail on each version and do not say much about Darabont's script. From what I can remember...

1. A story about Indy meeting and helping an alien survive on earth (E.T.???).

2. A story closer to KOTCS which had Indy involves with a new love interest and a daughter.

3. Darabont's script was close to the previous storyline but included Marion.

Does anyone else remember more info?
