Weekend Theater Threat Alert - 5/23/08

Weekend Movie Threat Level: Blue (Guarded)
Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull has everything going for it. It has an all star cast, one of the best director's in the biz, amazing stunts crew and most importantly, it's the ONLY new movie opening this weekend. To say this film is going to do huge at the box office this weekend is a complete understatement. Expect to not get in just about anywhere and dare i say it, a new opening 3 day record is possibly on the horizon. Is it any good? Who cares! It will be big box office regardless. The main plot consists of Indy being sucked back in for one last adventure by the Soviets (led by Cate Blanchett) talking him into finding a lost crystal skull. He can't help himself and is always thinking of his beloved museum, he decides to take on the adventure only later to be betrayed, damned Ruskies. Shia LeBeouf and Ray Winstone add sidekick comic relief. Even Karen Allen returns as Marion Ravenwood. There should be plenty of twists and turns and hopfully as long as you don't get your hopes too high you may even enjoy this.
