You might have been too busy with your Valentine yesterday, so in case you missed it, the INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL trailer has hit the net.
So what music do you think is featured in the trailer? Right. Brian Tyler's music from CHILDREN OF DUNE, of course! Ok that only sets the stage. About half way through, you know what kicks in.
Now, this trailer took me a little by surprise. For one, there are some shots here that are a clear departure from what we have come to expect with an Indiana Jones film. They are much more modern in style and, at least upon first seeing them, don't really fit in the world of Indiana Jones.
Then there is the audio mix of the trailer - the music is really thin and, in the end, doesn't pack the whallop it should have. The goosebumps just weren't there and that really surprised me. I expected I'd be cheering and whistling JOHN WILLIAMS' unforgettable theme by the end, but not the case.
Oh well. It's still Ol Indy and it looks like Spielberg and Lucas have pretty much held to the formula. I just hope they don't try to "appeal to today's kids" too much. Indy may be old, but he ain't broke...so don't try to fix him.
Well enjoy! Only a couple months 'til May 22
