A Title for One, and a Trailer for the Other

So, at the MTV Music Video Awards last night, Shia LaBeauf spilled the beans.

The title of the next Indiana Jones movie is....

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

It was confirmed at the official Indiana Jones website soon after.

I'm surprised there hasn't been much negative fan backlash yet towards the title. Maybe they used up all their bitterness on The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.

Or, it could be because the name is already part of the Indiana Jones universe. The name of the Indiana Jones ride at Tokyo DisneySea is Indiana Jones: Temple of the Crystal Skulls.

The fourth Indy film hits on May 22, 2008.

And, as much as I'm looking forward to the next Batman film, I can't help but look at everything coming out about the upcoming adaptation of Iron Man and thinking it just looks so darn cool.

for the latest proof, the first trailer just went online. And it is pretty darn spectacular.

Go see it for yourself, in glorious QuickTime, as they say at Ain't It Cool News.

For those who aren't up to speed, Robert Downey Jr. plays Tony Stark, the billionaire industrialist who has to build himself an armored suit to both keep himself alive, and escape from a terrorist prison camp. He keeps the suit and becomes the superhero Iron Man. Terrance Howard plays his best friend and sidekick Jim "Rhody" Rhodes, Gwynyth Paltrow plays his secreatary and love interest Virginia "Pepper" Potts, and Jeff Bridges plays his mentor-turned-nemesis Obidiah Stane, aka Iron Monger. It's being directed by Jon Favreau, who brought us Elf and Zathura, but is still best remembered as Vince Vaughn's buddy in Swingers.

That one drops on May 8.
