Paramount has sent over a handful of new photos from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Above, you can see the adorable smile of Karen Allen, who's reprising the role of Marion Ravenwood from Raiders of the Lost Ark for this film -- and I couldn't be happier about it. She was always my favorite Indy gal, and I'm itching to see what they've done with her character; how they've aged her, who she is, what she's been up to. I gather Indy won't find her throwing down shots in a remote bar in Nepal this time around. Can she still drink any man under the table? And, seeing as the Russians are the new enemies, will Marion get to go one on one with a big Russian and a bottle of vodka? Ya know, everyone talks about Indy and Mutt and the evil Spalko -- am I wrong for anticipating the return of Marion's character more than anything else? Check out the gallery below for the new images ...
