Jason Clark beat me to the punch this morning with Indiana Jones, but I beat him to the Star Trek being postponed news, so I guess we’re even.

The Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull teaser is here after a long, long, long wait with baited breath by fans everywhere. I can’t tell you how excited I am for this movie, and now that I’ve seen the teaser, I’m even more psyched.

It’s been almost 20 years since The Last Crusade. Wow.

One of the things about the movie is that with Harrison Ford being 68 years old, thinking of him running around swinging from ropes, dodging blow darts and beating booby traps seems kind of far-fetched.

But what Steven Spielberg has done is take the fact that he’s old and run with it.

You can see it in the first line Indy says in the teaser: “Not as easy as it used to be…

And from there you see another clip of him trying to swing into a vehicle and misjudging it. Hilarious and awesome. I think it’s brilliant to use that angle in this film and it’s just going to play HUGE to fans everywhere.

The teaser is perfect. From the moment you see his silhouette put the hat on, to all the action scenes, to Shia LaBeouf and then Cate Blanchett looking sexy in a black wig…stupendous! Bravo!

The trailer is below and you can also see it in High Definition over at the official Indiana Jones website.

Before you get to the teaser, I wonder if this little screen capture I did will have anything to do with the plot of the film? You might miss it if you watch the teaser once, but I saw it on the second viewing.
