Our good friends over at the official Indiana Jones website have posted a video from the first day of filming!
Harrison Ford and the other major cast members — Cate Blanchett (as the villain), Ray Winstone (as the sidekick), Shia LaBeouf (as the son?), John Hurt (who’s reportedly playing Albert Einstein) and Jim Broadbent (as a Yale professor, playing a similar role to Marcus Brody, who was played by the late, great Denholm Elliott) — are nowhwere to be found, but you get to see director Steven Spielberg and producer George Lucas in the desert with fancy glasses and a coffee thermos full of champagne.
I like all the old-timey cars. Especially the old-timey Army car.
I still can’t believe this is happening! In 1989, I was excited because I was getting a Batman movie and an Indiana Jones movie. Next sumer, I’ll be getting a Batman movie and an Indiana Jones movie.
It’s a good time to be alive.
