In a move that reminds one of that Fall 2012 afternoon when it was announced that the Walt Disney Company was buying Lucasfilm and that a new Star Wars movie was just a few years away, comes the news that a new Indiana Jones movie is now just a few years away. After much speculation about reboots and recasting (Bradley Cooper and Chris Pratt were both mentioned), Disney today has dropped the news that a fifth Indiana Jones movie will be released in the summer of 2019, starring Harrison Ford, and directed by Steven Spielberg!

Abrams’ new installment has been reported with painstaking detail. Now it seems that key members of the original cast (namely Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill) have all gathered in London. What announcement doth await us in the near future?

It should also please Disney and make them more secure in their decision to release Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016, the same weekend as the Man of Steel sequel, Batman Vs Superman. But is that the case? Might there be signs that in the first, big, box office face-off in 2016, the first one to blink might be Disney? There are rumblings…. (more…)
