What’s the best way to escape the summer heat? Going to the movies! Seriously. It’s dark, they’ve got the AC cranked up to subzero temperatures, and there’s all sorts of cold drinks and ice cream. What’s not to love!? With that in mind, it’s no wonder that studios save their heavy hitters for these hot ‘n’ humid months, thus creating a movie sub-type all its own: The Summer Blockbuster.
You might have thought the glass-skulled alien shenanigans of the last movie would have put the kibosh on any more sequels, but Shia LaBeouf’s Indiana Jones comments are correct, we’re going to see a lot more refrigerators survive a lot more nuclear explosions in the near future. “I talked to Harrison [Ford], he said he’s staying in the gym, he said he’s heard no word, but he does know that George [Lucas] is out there looking for a MacGuffin,” the Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon star claimed. For those who aren’t sure, a MacGuffin is a central plot point that drives a movie, not a crime-fighting dog as we might have previously claimed. Actually, at this point we wouldn’t be surprised if that ended up being Indy’s new sidekick in the next film.
Said Shia about original action hero Ford, “He said he’s staying in the gym, so it means, you know, it’s not so far off.” Call us cynical, but we’re guessing Harrison should just go ahead and put a down payment on the gym, because he’s going to be there awhile. In fact, go ahead and tell his grandbabies to send his birthday cards there.
