New Indy Trailer is Up

The teaser trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, is now out. Here's a copy I found on YouTube:

You can find a higher resolution one over at the official Indiana Jones website. It looks very much like Indy is going up against both the Russians and the US Government this time. I especially like the look of the warehouse action scene... I was amused by Indy cracking his whip in time to the music. Also as someone has pointed out to me... that warehouse does look a bit familiar. ;-)

It looks like the same place that they stowed the Ark of the Covenant at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark. It'd be great to see the Ark again... but I don't think they'll touch on it, aside from (if we're lucky), maybe a double-take on Indy's part as he passes a broken box with the Ark inside.

Some people might look at the trailer and think "cheesy", but that's actually part of the charm of Indiana Jones. Don't believe me? Take a look at what for me is one of the most memorable clips from Raiders (although there are many more):

That is typical Indy... going up against ridiculously silly odds...but it is so entertaining. My hopes are still there for the fourth installment. How about yours?
