Thanks to two separate Cinematical readers, they informed us that Shia Labeouf apparently announced to the world the official title of Indiana Jones 4 during the MTV Music Video Awards tonight. And, in case you haven't figured it out yet, the title will be Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This was indeed one of the six titles rumored to be in the running back in August when six names registered by Lucasfilm were leaked online. It also happens to be one of the titles I didn't like so much, mainly because it reminded me of He-Man for the some reason.
Although I wasn't watching the awards show myself (Curb premiere, as well as Giants game on), SpielbergFilms.com is also confirming this to be true. Besides, it would be pretty odd if two random people emailed us the exact same tip ... and lied. And if Shia was fibbing, it's also an odd title to fib about. Regardless, this is what they're going with -- and it seems to mesh with all of the plot speculation, blah blah, about skulls and Gods and pyramids and kingdoms. Personally, I'd rather this be the last bit of info we receive prior to the first teaser for the film. I don't want to know anything except for the fact that this Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will play a major role. Even if I do somewhat expect Skeletor to now be the film's main villain. So what do you think -- good title? Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will arrive in theaters on May 22, 2008.
