"Indy 4 to be in 3-D and Movie Motion!
Lucas says he wants the look and feel of the 50s in this movie and does it with3-D
Living up to his earlier statements that this new Indiana Jones film will harken back to the drive-in, sci-fi films of the 1950s, co-creator of Indy has announced that the new film will be in 3-D. "I want today's generation to know what it was like to really see things come flying out at you in a theatre and nothing can do that better than 3-D" said George Lucas from his Skywalker Ranch in San Ranfael, CA.
What is known at the mooment is that each theatre goers will receive the famed red and blue paper 3-D glasses when they watch "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" on May 22nd. The film will also be the debut of a new cinema technology Lucas jokingly calls "Movie Motion", in which the feet of the theatre goers will be stuck to the floor during certain hair-raising scenes during "Crystal Skull". "I want the kids to feel as if their shoes were stuck to the floor with nasty old chewing gum, like it was when I would go to the movies as a kid', said the creator of Darth Vader.
Upon hearing of the new effects added to his most recent film, award-winning director, Steven Speilberg had this to say about Lucas's comments; "He said what"?
For the man with the hat Harrison Ford, none of this comes as news to him. He has worked with Lucas since 1973's American Grafitti, "Yeah, whatever he wants to do. As long as the check clears, I'm game." The Indiana Jones star who has been dragged under a truck, thrown through countless windows, shot at, and pointed his finger in many a bad guys' face throughout his film career went on to say that he thinks the next "Indiana Jones movie should involve Indy looking for Paris Hilton's virginity. "Now, that will take some searching all around the world". Ford smiled at the chance of working with another one of Hollywood's next generation of stars,"Well at least I can pronounce this one's name".
So, fans of the fedora get ready for the ride of your life this May when the 3-D, floor-sticking action bounces your way in "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull". And by the way, "April Fool"'
