When are they going to let this continued idea of Harrison Ford as Indy rest already? When the guy will be 95?
Yeah, Shia Lebouf's character sucked as a potential successor, but that doesn't mean they couldn't try again with a different guy and especially a better script.
We are now in the era of superheroes who can be played by whoever wakes up on the right side of the bed that day. I think audiences would be more accepting of a recast than they were 15 years ago, so to speak. Besides, other characters like James Bond have been changing the main actor for years already, so it wasn't impossible even back then.
I think you could easily have made Indiana Jones into a James Bond/Doctor Who style of franchise, with a different Indy every few films. Wheeling him out again seems wrong when he was already far too old 14 years years ago. Looks like we are getting a de-aging sequence here too, which looked really awkward in that De Nero film a couple of years ago.
I'm sure i will see this, but keeping expectations pretty low.
Edit - to be fair about Solo, I think most people thought Alden Ehrenreich did a good job and was one of the better things about that film. I would be happy him being a young Han Solo in a good film.
I wonder if there's an age limit where deaging is no longer believable. The Irishman is referenced here a few times. There was also the bad Leia in Rogue One. Nike did a football commercial recently where they feature young Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, and it's much more believable IMO, but they're also in their 40s, not 70s.
It’s written and directed by Mangold as opposed to Spielberg so it has a chance of actually having a bit of grit and not being overly sentimental. That said it’s shot with that same horrible soft golden nostalgic colour grade that the last one had (but none of the originals) which I hate.
I don't mind a bit of nostalgia to these given how much I enjoyed 1 2 and 3 in growing up. 4 was a terrible obv. I loved TFA at the time it was released which hit that perfect balance for me (even though it was just a re-make, bigger death star etc etc) it was still fantastic seeing at the cinema with my kids. Could this do the same? Probably not, but that trailer gave me a decent nostalgia vibe.
Overall I just don't want it to be utter shit and if its decent would make it far easier to forget CSkull even exists.
I wonder how long ago John Rhys-Davies filmed his scenes for this, as he doesn't look as worryingly thin in the trailer than he did in that recent episode of Documentary Now! where he looked as if he might have been ill or given clothes a little too big for him.
EMarkM: Will there ever be a boy born who can swim faster than a shark?

vicedestroyer: I guess, once the world does its best Waterworld impression, it will be survival of the fittest. Either the boy swims fast or becomes shark tucker.

zagibu: Sharks not only swim fast, they also swim silent. Their scales are called dermal denticles, and they create local swirls around them which reduce the shark's overall drag in water.

zagibu: So even if a boy could swim as fast as a shark, he wouldn't hear them coming.
