I don't remember when it was the last time that the first trailer for such a highly anticipated movie emerged only three months before the official release but it's finally here, the trailer for the first Indiana Jones sequel in almost 20 years. Of course, 65-year-old Harrison Ford will again play Indy and Steven Spielberg will direct. Further cast members are Shia LaBeouf, Cate Blanchett, Ray Winstone, Karen Allen, John Hurt and Jim Broadbent. I could say more about the plot but then Spielberg probably will have me killed, or at least made sure that I will never work in Hollywood again. Despite the fact that I don't want to work in Hollywood in the first place.
Trailer will be shown in theatres before The Spiderwick Chronicles. More files can be found at the official site. In order to ensure that you get goosebumps when you hear the Indy theme I recommend turning up the volume. Ah, nostalgia!
And since Yahoo has made them available last night, teasers and trailers for the three previous movies in decent .wmv quality. Here are the links to download.

Action drama about a Jiu-jitsu master (Chewitel Ejiofor) who has avoided the prize fighting circuit, choosing to instead pursue an honorable life by operating a self defense studio with a samurai's code. He and his wife (Alice Braga) struggle to keep the business running to make ends meet. An accident on a dark, rainy night between an off duty officer (Max Martini) and a distraught lawyer (Emily Mortimer) puts in motion a series of events that will change his life dramatically introducing him to a world of promoters (Ricky Jay, Joe Mantegna) and movie stars (Tim Allen).
Just judging by the summary and the trailer I would most certainly pass. But given the interesting cast and the fact that it's written and directed by David Mamet (Heist, The Spanish Prisoner, House of Games) I so far will keep an eye on this one.

Intense drama about a 40-year-old woman (Tilda Swinton) who's an alcoholic, manipulative, unreliable and a notorious liar. But in spite of everything else, she is still an imposing appearance. Her life is getting lonelier and lonelier. Her daily dose of alcohol only serves to strengthen her conviction that she is one of life's losers and that she is not responsible for the chaos she has made of hers so far. One day an opportunity is presented and she turns to crime as a way out. She helps kidnapping a child to extort money.
Movie is part of the official competition in Berlin right now. Reviews in general are rather mixed but Swinton gets praised for another impressive performance.
