I've just found out that the new movie Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull runs for 122 minutes and 20 seconds, which is about the same time as the last movie. I had heard of an early cut that ran for about another 18 minutes, so we'll have to wait for the DVD and see what scenes were cut (if they show them all, that is!). Still whatever the running time, I'm looking forward to this film, as I saw a new trailer the other night, and it looks brilliant.

If the trailer is anything to go by it looks like its made for the fans, full of action and humour "great stuff" however I cant believe its almost 20 years [Roll Eyes] since I watched "The Last Crusade" at the cinema.

We've been waiting for this one!

They wisely put the film about 10 to 15 years after "Last Crusade", allowing for Indy to show a little age.

... but a sixty year old Indy is better than twenty Wesley Snipes, Jean Claude Van Dames, ect!

... except for Clint Eastwood. He'd be tough at one hundred years old, in a wheel chair, with a loaded 45!

Brad,

I got my timings of the British Film Classification website, and the film being released in the U.K. is 122 minutes and 20 seconds, I heard like you that it was going to be 2 hours and 20 minutes, so I'm a bit confused now, as the BBFC is always accurate with its timings as they also list the length of the films submitted. Go to the site on this link http://www.bbfc.co.uk/recent/index.php?media=film and look for yourself.

I believe this rumour about a 2 hr 20 min cut came from a quote from John Williams who was quoted as saying he was composing a score for a 7 reel film. Much conjecture went around the net on movie websites & blogs that this was the longest of all the series without any real confirmation of the running time. But Barry' information is correct ; the film is just a little over two hours.

The film has also been classified here in the province of Ontario at the same running time and is also listed in the program schedule for this year's Cannes Film Festival on their website.

Speaking on Eastwood, I've mentioned to someone who sort of knows him that he must create one more "man with no name" film. In keeping with the latest revivals, another such western or Dirty Harry would be a treat

No, I'm serious. He did well with pale Rider and The Unforgiven as he got older. I think if he reunites himself with both Eli Wallach, from the leone days and Bruce Dern, the saddle pal from Rawhide, the nostalgia alone would do it also the fact that these guys still have the strength to carry one more off - Hell, I'm a union actor and would be in it for nothing

You're a union man?

So am I, and I work 16 hours a day.

Hey you guys, I just lucked into a 4 foot by 6 foot babber of "Indiana Jonbes and the Kingdom of the Crystal skull".

It's a plastic banner that was put out in full color by Kelloggs foods, (the only mention of Kelloggs is just thier logo), and I got two of them in the bargain.

Drool people!!

Gentlemen, Chaps, (any ladies)- As we own and operate theaters out here in Los Angeles, I can tell you witout question the movie runs 122 minutes and is a fairly good entertaining movie at that. Especially if you compare it to some of the garbage we have all had to sit through of late. Won't spoil anything here, some of it you may know already. But its not like any of the 3 films before it and Harrison Ford (hes 66 this July) is to be commended for this effort. Enjoy it please!

I "helped" a theater owner this afternoon to check his print. Ah, the fresh smell of polyester when you rip the sealed bag...
The movie's fun, there are some really cool ideas and it's quite entertaining (which isn't too bad), but there's a lack of pacing and some sluggish scenes which make you go, "yeah, that was ok" instead of going "Wow! That was Great!" Good thing they cut these 18 minutes out.

But the jungle car chase is pure Spielberg.

Now I can crawl back into my hole and wait for the release of Wall-E.

I just came from INDIANA JONES and I loved it. Maybe it's because I'm a simple person and wonder why anyone would complain about it. I was really looking forward to this one more than anything else and it wasn't a disappointment at all. I've seen all the others at the theater and it was a pleasure to finally see a new INDY film.

I saw the film yesterday at the Ziegfeld, what I consider to be the finest movie theater in New York City. It was a great experience, but the sluggishness that Jean-Marc refers to definitely weighs the film down. Another ten or so minutes of cuts would've worked nicely.
There are some very clever references to the earlier Indy films, and a major plot point that's very similar to "Quatermass and the Pit".
