Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull has a new photograph out today, all packed with cobwebs and spiders. It also looks like Shia LaBeouf's uniform throughout the film will be his greaser biker jacket, helping hammer home the whole "Hey, I'm a teenaged rebel, man!" attitude. If he picks up the whip once and swings it, we're calling shenanigans. We've got the full story on what's happening in this photo.
You've basically got two ways to show that something is really, really old in a movie. One is tons of dust, the other is an assload of cobwebs. Indiana Jones normally has both in spades, but they've gone above and beyond for this new movie.
Consider the evidence: in that opening scene in Raiders, he hauls ass through some massive webs before hitting the dirt in front of the Hovitos tribe. What's he covered in? Those same webs. In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom he ventures down into insect-infested catacombs which include what? Giant spiders and cobwebs. In Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade has to again venture into cobwebby catacombs under Venice, and later deal with both a cobwebby Knight of the First Crusade, and his dad's cobweb-addled mind. Look for a final showdown in Indiana Jones and the Giant Spiders From Mars to finally put an end to this issue.
This reminds us of the exchange from the last movie, which we've altered a bit:
Indy: "That belongs in a musuem!"
Panama Hat Man: "So do you! With a ton of cobwebs for effect!"
