It's okay but not great in my opinion. I own all of Struzan's Indy posters and own a lot of the SW ones too, but this is not his best. It's a predictable layout (much like Revenge of the Sith). I can't even tell that that's Karen Allen. Mac looks like Bob Hoskins too. TOD was his best poster.

Yeah if you go to the poster section on the OS, and save the poster to your harddrive (or post the filepath to the pic)...it's high res.

Can someone say...new desktop?

Just right click the high-res pic posted above and select "set as desktop background"

If it's stretched, right click the desktop and go to properties...under desktop select "center" instead of "stretch".

That's better.

And yet I don't think the single aspects of this composition fit together quite as well as in other Struzan paintings. Especially Mac's and Marion's heads seem out of place.

It still feels good to look the giant head of Indiana Jones in the eyes, though.

A fantastic poster!

It's classic Indy but has a more 'modern' poster feel for the 21st century adventure.


All the cast come across well in his art, such a talent. Loving the 'Raiders' homage too, and the full front of Indy looking ready for action yet again in the top centre!

"May 22"... is this the final poster or just the second teaser?

Looks great to me, but since we're dissecting it, the only thing that kinda bothers me is the "a Steven Spielberg film" tag line above the title... which NONE of the other Indy posters seemed the need to have. I also kinda miss the funky font of the teaser... to me the font always changed slightly with each of the previous ones, so it was like a tradition. I like the orange background, it reminds me of the trailer, but I wouldn't have minded a cooler palette because it seems like there won't be as many dusty/desert locations in this one. Not bad, but just didn't hit me the same way the teaser did...

Reminds of the Disney ride poster...

Cate's holding the sword almost the exact same way Shia is heree:

I wonder if Drew really did draw that one...

Ah... I see now that the final Last Crusade poster says "Opens Wednesday May 24" also... so I guess this is the final one.

Drew Struzan's "Temple of Doom" and "Last Crusade" posters should be in the Louvre.

I think the reason I like the ToD poster more than KotCS poster is that there is more to it, for lack of a better term it is much more busy than KotCS, more stuff to look at. Which to me, makes the poster more interesting.

It's interesting to see which major cast member is missing from this poster.

Wonder why? (not referring to Broadbent, by the way)

I like it best because of Indy blocking the Thuggee's attack on the left. That pose is just uber kickass.

I also really like the part where he is riding on his horse with the gun pointed ahead on the LC poster.

The OS is refering to the poster as a "payoff" poster. What's that supposed to mean?
