Ask any smuggler, any real smuggler. If don't matter if you win by a mile or a parsec. Winning's winning.

I am extremely skeptical of carrying on the Indiana Jones franchise with Ford given his age. That being said, the only way I am going to buy in to this is if the at some point in the first few minutes we hear:

Sallah: Indy, my dear friend, I have traveled all the way from Cairo to be with you in your time of need. I am so sorry about your son

Indy: Thanks old friend. Damn, killed by his own troops in Vietnam........wasn't expecting that telegram

Well, color me surprised. Figured they had firmly planted the Star Wars flag on Christmas.

But Star Wars in May? That just feels right. The original home of Star Wars.

Avengers concludes in early May 2019, right? Hello cash machine!

I guess the confusing thing is, if they liked May releases, why not start the trilogy off in May 2016? If they wanted to test out December and see how it did, why go back after seeing it was a goldmine two years in a row?

I wonder what the thought process is. Maybe December was a Bob Iger decision and he is no longer calling the shots since he's on his way out soon.

thats what i am wondering. Star Wars in Dec turned into a new family tradition for us with all the relative and friends being in town.

Mark me down as one who also loved December Star Wars....but I won't complain as long as we get high quality SW films.

Don't worry. It will end up getting pushed back to Dec due to studio meddling and massive reshoots.

Had to keep promises to their shareholders. When this whole thing was announced in 2012 for a 2015 release, they never imagined they wouldn't be able to hit that date, especially considering they already had an outline and writer well before the announcement was even made. But then when they encountered development troubles months later, and already pushed to December 2015, Abrams pushed hard again for May 2016 but Disney wouldn't budge due to the 2015 promise to shareholders. Before all that, though, the plan was always May 2015.

What difference would it have made to shareholders to wait an extra 5 months? It was a guaranteed success either way.

Money earned now and reinvested is worth more than money earned 5 months from now.

When companies make promises, set deadlines, etc, to their shareholders, they are expected to hit them.

Also has to do with including revenues in 2015 to offset loses with ESPN.

I'm more concerned about him being coherent or even wanting to be there. He's already terrible on the late night talk shows when doing his contractually required media push. He might even punch someone. Wait, on second thought this could be great.

He's always been a bad interview. I think he's actually gotten better in recent years.

Does he blow all his money on those classic planes? Dude clearly hates his job. Like most people. But most people aren't filthy rich.

Why not just quit?

So the movie is set in 1978 or thereabouts....

So... Atlantis? Egypt?

Both were really big in the 70s.

Fate of Atlantis confirmed!!!!! :-)

I hope they kill off Mutt in this one, maybe he can get run over by a yellow Camaro.

Make it a black Trans-Am with a former FSU football player wearing a big cowboy hat, perhaps followed by a big rig driven by a dude with his big portly dog ... that would be fantastic.
