Living without television has kind of put me out of touch with pop-culture. More than a year ago, I’d watch my favorite programs and catch blips of movie trailers during the commercials I’d fast forward through. If I saw some skin or someone getting punched or shot, I’d rewind to see what it was all about. These days I’m forced to crawl the Internet to see what’s new and advertising on the Web is so eclectic, my subconscious just isn’t bombarded enough to get me to check something out. This regrettable state of affairs also includes movies that I should want to see, but totally forget to because I never saw the trailer. Fortunately, I Stumbled! on a site featuring the new Indiana Jones teaser trailer. Here it is, if you haven’t seen it yet:
I don’t know how you all feel about it – and it’s hard to tell from the small YouTube video – but it does look a tad cartoonier than the rest of the series. I think it’s those moving pillar thingies that just scream CGI to me. Regardless, it still looks cool and I think of all the returns to successful intellectual properties (Die Hard, Rambo) Indy 4 will probably be the closest to capturing its old feel. Plus, Harrison Ford looks pretty good, too.
