You can find the main subject of this post after the break. At the big attractive center lies the great crystal spoiler. Don’t look at it if you want to keep the movie a mystery. It also features Cate Blanchett, Ray Winstone and Shia on a motorbike. The picture comes as the official cover to the comic adaptation by The Dark Horse (spoiler here too), to be published on May 22nd.
If you want to see some new Indiana Jones photos without having to ruin the movie, the Italian press, L’epresso has unveiled three new shots (thanks to Andrea):

The delectable Vanity Fair are back with an ever so wonderful and enormous Indiana Jones 4 five-page feature “Keys to the Kingdom”, containing quotes, interviews and news, but most importantly - new behind the scenes pictures, including our first ever glimpse of Cate Blanchett in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Make sure you don’t miss the 4 page Question and Answer session with Steven Spielberg, the George Lucas Q & A session and the behind the scenes of the photoshoot video.
Here are some choice quotes from director Steven Spielberg (via the Q & A session and HA):
I’m in my second cut, which means I’ve put the movie together and I’ve seen it. I usually do about five cuts as a director.
The best news is that – when I saw the movie myself the first time – there was nothing I wanted to go back and shoot, nothing I wanted to reshoot and nothing I wanted to add.
I go for geography. I want the audience to know not only which side the good guy’s on and the bad guy’s on but which side of the screen they’re in.
I want the audience to be able to edit as quickly as they want in a shot. [That has] been my style with all four of these “Indiana Jones” pictures.
Quick-cutting is very effective in some movies – like the “Bourne” pictures – but you sacrifice geography when you go for quick-cutting.
[That] is fine because audiences get a huge adrenaline rush from a cut every second and a half [in] “The Bourne Ultimatum”.
There’s just enough geography for the audience never to be lost especially in the last “Bourne” film, which I thought was the best of the three.
By the same token, Indy is a little more old-fashioned than the modern-day action adventure.

Warning: Plot Spoilers Ahead
MTV had the scoop on this one in speaking with Indiana Jones producer, Frank Marshall. He “finally” revealed that - major spoilers are blotted out to prevent any discomfort:
“Well, Cate [Blanchett] is just spectacular, one of the finest actresses working today. She went from ‘[The Curious Case of] Benjamin Button’ to playing the villainess in ‘Indiana Jones,’ so she’s up for anything [...] She makes a great villain. She had a really fun time”
“Ray Winstone [...] plays an archaeologist competitor to Indy. Friend and competitor.”
Meanwhile, Frank has also been talking to USA Today, revealing some finer points about the development of Indy as an older man and the Crystal Skull powers:
“[Indy's] teaching and having kind of a quiet life,” the producer says. Once the archaeologist is thrust back into danger, the signature Indiana Jones red line tracing across the map will take him to New Mexico, Connecticut, Mexico City and the jungles of Peru.
“Indy’s a fallible character. He makes mistakes and gets hurt. He has a few more aches and pains now. That’s the other thing people like: He’s a real character, not a character with superpowers.”
“The theory is [Crystal Skulls] are shaped by higher powers or alien powers or came from another world, or an ancient Mayan civilization had the powers,”
