Indiana Jones and the appalling name for a sequel

  • 13 September 2007

Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark: dramatic. Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom: eerie. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: heroic.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: own-brand biscuits and lottery scratchcards.

The title of the long-awaited fourth Indy picture was blurted out by Shia LaBoeuf at the MTV awards and no-one’s rushed out to deny its veracity, so it looks like we’re lumbered with it.

Internet scuttlebutt would have you believe that the plot revolves round a legend of 13 crystal skulls which harbor all manner of mystical powers and esoteric gubbins.

Five have been found when the movie kicks off, which suggests that Indy is going to have find the remaining eight.

Or we could be looking at Indiana Jones and the Faulty Arithmetic.
