Is anyone else 'slightly' worried that in all the official photos Harrison looks like he is playing second fiddle to Shia? He looks like a confused old man being taken around by a teenager?
I hope...hopehopehope.. that this is certainly not the case.
Please don't destroy this franchise. Even when cast alongside characters (Henry, Shortround, Sallah) he always was the leading man, and had all the good action scenes to himself.
Lets hope it stays this way... but must admit, my doubt grows stronger with each official pic.

Yes, it's hard to define what exactly it is about Shia I don't warm to - I don't think he's a bad actor, I just would have prefered a film that didn't throw in a young lad for all the kiddies out there "to relate to". It just doesn't sit right with me. You're right, Indiana doesn't seem to be the main focus...

Why must Indy have all this "gang"? We have Marion, "Mutt" and let's not forget Mac and Abner. It's concerning me that this movie might be a bit of a "Famous 5" movie with Indy being the comic relief.

Is it just me or does Harrison Ford look a bit worn out? Looking forward to seeing this movie but can't help thinking he looks too old! Sorry Harrison fans!

Got to say I like all three of the Indiana Jones movies as each are a little bit different. At a push I'd say Raiders is my fave. From this photo it looks as if Indiana Jones is still the focus of the movie - as Marion and 'Mutt' are both looking at him as if he has just come up with some crazy idea or escape!!!! Can't wait to see how the plot plays out and how all of the official photos fit into it and where!!!

I hope Harrison's over that earring-wearing, Ali-McBeal-dating, mid-life crisis business he went through a couple of years ago and plays to his age in this one. He's looking a bit too much like a teabag nowadays to play the action hero without an element of humour.

My only worry is that Indy has waaaay too many hangers on in this film (by the looks of it) - Ray Winstone, Shia Lebouf, Karen Allen..... too many cooks spoil the sheep's eyeball soup......

Really looking forward to this, Raiders of the Lost Ark and the Last Crusade are two of my favourite films ever. Temple of Doom, while good in parts, just doesn't compare to them overall.

I don't think that all of the characters will be in Indy's 'gang' that travel with him. I reckon that it will be just Shia and Karen for the most part. That is the same number of 'gang' members as Temple of Doom - Willie and Short Round and the latter part of Last Crusade - his dad and Marcus. Truthfully I don't care how many 'gang' members there are, I'm just glad I get to see an Indiana Jones movie at the cinema!!!!

No,no, please no.... I've had high hopes for this film ever since Spielbeard said he was channeling the original Raiders vibe, but if it's more like Last Crusade my hope is draining; it was more like an Indiana Jones spoof after all... Where Raiders Indy was devil-may-care, Crusade Indy was holier-than-thou, but I guess that fit with the worst mcguffin of the series. The Holy Grail? Jesus.... Then again as I soon as I saw a Crystal Skull still with Indy in a damned bow-tie my worries should have kicked in straight away ;-)
