Kein Indy Marathon in Wien?!

Aktueller Status der wiederholten Rückfrage, ob im Wiener Haydn Kino am 21./22. Mai ein Indy Marathon mit allen vier Filmen laufen wird: In Österreich sind die Verleihrechte der ersten drei Filme abgelaufen d.h. kein Filmverleih bietet sie im Moment an. Außerdem gibt es zur Zeit keine Kopien der Filme. Eine Filmkopie kostet €150 bis €200.-, also kein unlösbares Problem.
Momentan darf man zumindest auf Last Crusade + Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hoffen.

Indy IV display

Here are a couple of low quality (sorry! I had no camera but my cell phone with me that day) pics from the Indy IV display in the Wienerberg Cineplexx here in Vienna.

What you see here is a real wooden box, about 1.20 m high, with the text "PROPERTY OF DR. JONES 9906573" and location stickers on it. There is also a hat (not a real one, though) and a whip.

- -

In front of the wooden box you see a fake suitcase made out of cardboard. Both suitcase and box also feature the German translated title "Indiana Jones und das Königreich des Kristallschädels".

- -

I will try to make some better pics next time but its really dark inside that cinema and there is a very bright display right next to the Indy display.

Welcome traveler!

This blog will be not used like a usual blog but rather as a kind of news bulletin for 2008 is a special year: Indiana Jones IV will not only draw a lot of attention to the world of Indy but also bring lots of new Indiana Jones merchandise. It's my hope to deal best with these exciting times with this little blog.
