Still shot from the movie: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

After 19 years, Harrison Ford dons his hat, picks up his whip and resumes his role as Indian Jones, a part-time university professor/full-time adventurer. And while the aging actor and character admits it's not as easy as it used to be, fans can still expect a whole lot of action as Indy tackles a new challenge with a young tag-a-long (Shia La Beouf) and runs into an old romantic interest (Karen Allen).

How does the “fun” and lighthearted approach, along with the music, allow you to forget such serious concerns?

Crystal skulls are real archeological mysteries. Some of the websites the producers of this movie researched include:
