New Indiana Jones Info and Photos

The February 2008 issue of Vanity Fair magazine has done an pretty extensive cover story about the production of "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull." The article has been published in full online, along with three new pictures shot by the legendary Annie Leibovitz. (Check out our first look at Cate Blanchett as the evil Agent Spalko).

The article itself contains a few spoilers and some other production details. Most notable is that at the time of the interview, Spielberg was through his 'second of five' cuts of the film and that after seeing the first cut "there was nothing I wanted to go back and shoot, nothing I wanted to reshoot, and nothing I wanted to add."

He also adds that we shouldn't expect tricky editing either - "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...Quick-cutting is very effective in some movies, like the Bourne pictures, but you sacrifice geography when you go for quick-cutting."
