You may have heard a rumor reported a few days ago that indicated ‘Indy 4′ would be 2 hours and 20 minutes, but that report appears to have been wrong. Producer Frank Marshall has confirmed that film will be about 2 hours. In other Indy news, several new photos have hit the web, and we’ve got an early very positive review of the film.
First up, a clarification on the running time:
“Composer John Williams, Guy #2 says, was initially correct on the Indy 4 running time of 140 minutes, but the film ‘underwent belt tightening and has been receiving customary tweaking for its final mix.'”
And now some highlights from the review:
- Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull “is the best of the Indy sequels”.
- Harrison Ford, he claims, “gives his best performance in the role, not only physically belying his age but layering in welcome poignancy. More than before, audiences will be rooting for Indy. Shia LaBeouf makes essential contributions. Chemistry between he and Ford is palpable, yielding some nice character comedy.
- “The film has the strongest supporting cast of the sequels. They all raise the bar. Ray Winstone amuses and fascinates, but the strongest impression is left by Cate Blanchett’s Agent Spalko, a characterization that achieves instant cult status.
