Leave it to USA Today to bring on the mega movies when they decide to even bother covering Hollywood movies. Over the last few months, they’ve provided first looks and articles on everything from “Speed Racer” to “Quantum of Solace” to “Watchmen”. Their latest is an article on “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, which comes included with two pictures, one with a perched Harrison Ford and the other an actual still from the movie, which shows off that “crystal skull” in the title.
A brief excerpt from the article:
Many of the plotlines of Crystal Skull are still secret, but Ford says the movie will try to give new perspectives on his globe-trotting, fist-fighting archaeologist. Jones happens to be among Ford’s favorite characters, and he has put his own curmudgeonly rogue qualities into him.
“He’s a guy who is pretty clear from the beginning,” Ford says. “He has not changed so much between films. But we’ve learned more about him, through various plot devices, such as the introduction of his father. And we’ll learn something more about him in this film. I think it’s required. If you’re going to bring back a character, you’ll have to supply the audience with something more and different.
“The adventure is very, very important. But it’s interesting to discover a facet of the character that perhaps you hadn’t explored before.”
