Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull mistake picture

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when Indy is talking to Spalko, his hands keep alternating from being in his pockets to just resting at his sides between shots.

Factual error: In the warehouse scene, the lights and other metal objects are affected by the box's magnetic field. Yet the soldiers easily lift the box into a metal truck to load it and slide it forward. If the box's magnetic field was as strong as suggested, it would have dragged the soldiers forward as it was magnetically attracted to the truck, and it would have taken much more effort for them to slide it onto the truck bed once it was stuck there.

Visible crew/equipment: When Dr. Irina Spalko is descending the cliff, you can briefly see the harness cable that is holding her up right next to the rope on which she is climbing down.

Question: In the United States, why was the film released on a Thursday instead of a Wednesday or Friday?

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Because the film had a global release date, and premiered the same day in every country in the world. Obviously, the studio felt this was the best day to do it.

Question: Perhaps I've forgotten some details from The Last Crusade in the years since I've seen it, but shouldn't Henry Sr. not be dead in this movie, because he drank from the Holy Grail which gives immortality?

Chosen answer: Yep, you've forgotten some details. The Knight specifically states that the immortality bestowed by the Grail is limited to those who remain within the shrine. Jones Snr left the cave, ergo, no immortality.

Question: I'm aware of Indy's ophidiophobia, but how much will snakes play into the film? Sharing the same phobia, I don't want to spend the whole film trying to avoid watching snake-related scenes.

Cubs Fan Premium member

Chosen answer: Based on what little we've seen, namely what's in the trailers, there seems to be very little on the snake front. There will undoubtedly be at least one moment somewhere in the film, but there's no indication that snakes will be a major focus of the storyline.
