Stop it, you're killing me! Still very silly, though, isn't it? But, hey. So is a mine cart jumping from one track to another.

Interdimensional Beings

I haven't read the book or anything. But couldn't it be possible that when it talks about inter-dimensional beings that they have actually taken infernal machine into account and are referencing his experience there? He gets out of there pretty quick in the game. Then again...That's only if they are taking everything marketed as Indy into account.

I'm pretty sure that they're going to use that scene. If they do I think it can work. It will be the end of the opening sequence (what a way to be the climax to his last adventure - which the opening always is). Probably following on from the warehouse and the rocket sled. If that's the case, what an explosive, action-packed opening. No wonder he retires. Back to Marshall. Where are the protesters? Would be amusing to see Indy post explosion passing the anti-atomic protesters. He'd be in full agreement lol.

EXT. TOWN - DAY
The dust begins to settle...Shapes seem to rise en the horizon.
THE HOUSE
is gone except for the foundation.

Indy pushes back the refrigerator and stands shakily. He stares around him at the devastation and makes out SIX WHITE FIGURES moving slowly toward him. Their movements are stiff and non-human and as they get closer we see they make sweeping movements with what look like long appendages.
Then the wind clears and we see
THEY ARE A DECONTAMINATION TEAM armed with long-handled Geiger counters. They stop in amazement when they see Indy.

LEADER
Holy cow, we've got a live one.
Does that make anyone else think of this picture?

Picked up a copy a couple of days ago. It fits in really well with my "Action Hero's Handbook" and "Action Heroine's Handbook" from 2002/2003 !

Handbook

I've got the book before the movie came out. I like it - It's pure pleasure.

I really enjoyed the handbook. There are a few things in there that I really want to try and other that are just cool fun facts to know. All and all I would say that it is well worth the money.
