If Only Indiana Jones 4 Had Been As Thrilling As Its Concept ArtS

If only Indiana Jones and the Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull had been as dynamic as the movie's concept art. A gorgeous new book from Lucas Books and Ballantine, The Complete Making Of Indiana Jones, is chock full of art and production photos for Skull that make me feel a bit wistful for the finished product. Catacombs lit by glowing alien devices, shimmering skeletons and the obligatory exploding heads, all burst with so much promise that was never quite realized. Click through for a shiny gallery.
