Film of the summer: Indy vs Batman

Simple Indy or Batman

So what do people reckon? I think the big hit of the summer will be one of these two what with Iron Man & Speed Racer already out and Potter 6 / Bond not now out until Autumn / Winter.

Here is the last trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull before it hits the screens in a fortnight:

Likewise, the new Batman flick The Dark Knight gets its first proper length trailer here:

Personally I can't wait for both, but having these recent reruns of Indy on BBC has made me dampen my expectations a bit thankfully as they were in danger of exploding. I was concerned from the previous trailer that it all looked a bit CGI heavy and stupid, but after watching the older films they've always been like that haven't they? So that should be great fun. Early reviews suggest its not the best one (was it ever going to be?) but well worth a watch.

Elsewhere, the film company behind Batman have shocked me by actually making an adult Batman flick. From this trailer and the sneak peek photos released, it's going to very, very dark and probably a 15 / 18. It also looks highly accurate to the source material it's lifted from. I'm still stunned they haven't called it Batman 2 as well...

So all in all, should be a good couple of heavyweight summer blockbusters for the first time in years.
