The rumor mill is churning over at Coming Soon, and they seem to think that we will be seeing our first full Indiana Jones 4 trailer in February:
First up, the first trailer for Steven Spielberg’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is now planned for a debut in February. While we don’t know for sure with which movie it will show, Paramount’s biggest film that month is The Spiderwick Chronicles, so keep your eye on that one. Of course, it’s possible Paramount will decide to debut footage earlier during the Super Bowl, but we’re not sure.

EDIT: No, as expected, these were unfounded rumors that were just widely spread, perhaps in light of the Dark Knight IMAX associations coming this December. Sorry folks, we’ll have to keep guessing!
I am seeing a number of rumors around the net stating that the Indiana Jones teaser trailer will be linked to the upcoming Beowulf film, with a later online release via the official website. A trailer schedule breakdown has also been posted on the IMDB forums although no source has been quoted:
Teaser Trailer with Beowulf Nov 16th, 2007
1st Trailer with JJ Abrams movie Jan 18, 2008
2nd Extended Trailer March 2008
Incidentally, it seems the trailer description we posted last week has been reported as a fake, which is a shame because it actually sounded very good.

Edit: This is fake.
I was contacted by one Guy Lagace concerning a breakdown of the unseen Indiana Jones trailer, “from a reliable source”, via Skewed and Reviewed. I am not source how much this description can be trusted, if at all, but for the sake of interest, here is the description:

SlashFilm have received a tip-off about six possible names that Lucasfilm have filed with the MPAA as the title for Indiana Jones 4. The nominations are,
Indiana Jones and the City of Gods (the long time favourite),
Indiana Jones and the Destroyer of Worlds,
Indiana Jones and the Fourth Corner of the Earth,
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull,
Indiana Jones and the Lost City of Gold
Indiana Jones and the Quest of the Covenant.
I have highlighted the two most likely (and subjectively best) titles, the others each feel like either a red herring or some sort of terrible science fiction film.

I have been reluctant to report on this news piece, but with the surmounting internet coverage it is getting I believe I should address it now. The IESB have reported that one of their “reliable Paramount sources” has told them that Shia LaBeouf has signed on for three more Indy films. That’s right - Indy 5, 6 and 7. IESB continue, stating that Indiana himself, Harrison Ford, has also signed up for two further films.
That’s the crunch, and the rumour mill is churning. In response Lucasfilm have denied future sequels, via the MTV movie blog,
“That’s purely a rumor,” Lucasfilm’s Director of Publicity John Singh told MTV News. “Idle chatter among Internet fans.”
Would you want more Indy? Does everything have to be a trilogy these days? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
