Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Teaser Trailer)

The first trailer’s up and it kicks ass.

It’s hard to judge too much from the teaser -- it’s mostly a collection of stunts and one-liners -- but it’s put to rest any doubts that this would be another half-hearted, “back in the saddle for one last paycheck” sequel like Terminator 3 or Die Hard 4.

There’s a little more CGI and wire work on display than I expected, but that unquantifiable “it” Harrison Ford has when he dons that fedora is clearly back, and it looks like Spielberg is finally letting himself have fun again, making the kind of movie he does best. And that’s all that matters to this geek.

Oh, and Cate Blanchett with that haircut and outfit...

That’s the best damn looking commie I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen a few in my time.
