The IESB have posted a video interview with Ray Winstone as he promotes his new film Beowulf and also takes some time to talk about our favourite upcoming film, Indiana Jones 4, talking mostly of his experiences in working with Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford and Karen Allen.

Indiana Jones Video and Images from Fresno
October 16th, 2007 | Digg This

It is now official, Indiana Jones 4, which had its title revealed during filming, has now passed one of its major milestones, it’s a wrap! The last scenes to be shot took place in Fresno, and a few people were in the area to witness the occasion.

First up, griff311 posted this impressive video:

Whilst another blogger came back with some pictures and a report,

I went over there to see what I saw and I saw some cool stuff. Harrison Ford, Shia LaBeouf & Señor Estar Gwars himself, George Lucas were on the set and captured by my lens. No Spielberg for me but some uber-dork (who was running around with DVDs asking people how much they thought he could sell a beat to shit copy of Jurassic Park 2 signed by Spielberg) said he heard him over a loudspeaker giving direction. The airport was used as the airport for Mexico City circa 1950 or so as you can see the Mexican flag flying over it in the pic.

Late Update also have some different pictures.

Shooting in Fresno
October 11th, 2007 | Digg This

It seems that the last days of filming for Indy 4, are taking place in Fresno. ABC got the scoop with their anticipatory local video report:

About 40 people from paramount pictures are already here preparing two valley locations for filming of the new Indiana Jones at chandler airport and at eagle field in Dos Palos.

By the end of the week, more than 200 people are expected to be working on shooting scenes for one of Hollywood’s most talked about movie.

Airport workers say production crews have been preparing Fresno’s chandler airport since Saturday, painting lettering to make it look like.

The film is set in 1957, so old cars have been brought in, along with a DC-3 plane with Pan-America painted on the side.

Crews also painted “Branford” on the airport tower, likely to represent the airport in Branford Conneticut, where some scenes have already been shot.

Thanks for the heads up Jayden.

Spielberg Interviews aplenty
October 10th, 2007 | Digg This

Both ComingSoon and AICN have recently posted up their interviews with the legendary Steven Spielberg which took place at Universal Studios - in one big get together involving all the big-wig movie sites; like one big happy family. They all headed to the Indiana Jones set via an Amblin van, though the most they saw of the crystal skull world was the catering, with glimpses of the cast and crew. Most importantly however, they got to sit down and have a Q and A session with the Indy 4 director.

Each is an interesting read, the AICN report providing an in-depth flavour of the experience, whilst ComingSoon opts for the facts. I have provided a summary of the important information below:

Coming Soon: Production is two days away from wrapping and the director raved about how great it was to have Ford back and how amazed he was that he did the majority of his own stunts. [...] The Russians are the villains in the film and he hired Russian actors to ensure accuracy with their accents.

[...] The fourth installment of the “Indiana Jones” franchise is shot on film and not digital, [...] if the people before him, who he considered great directors, did it on film then that’s good enough for him. (AICN go into this with a bit more depth, discussing the life of chemical film)

Spielberg then talked about what a great addition Shia LaBeouf has been and how he’s been doing all of his own stunts, too.

AICN: “Is Drew returning for the poster?” Without missing a beat Spielberg said without a doubt. He said he can’t make an INDIANA JONES movie without John Williams’ score, he can’t make one without Michael Kahn editing and it wouldn’t be an INDIANA JONES movie if Drew Struzan didn’t do the poster art.
