When it comes to the greatest blockbuster movie franchises of all time, we’d rank Indiana Jones right up there with Star Wars. Steven Spielberg and George Lucas’ ode to 1940s adventure serials produced some of the best films of the 80s and introduced audiences to one of the most iconic heroes in movie history in its titular adventure-seeking archaeologist (it still kind of blows our mind that Harrison Ford gets to be both Han Solo AND Indiana Jones).
Though the franchise’s legacy was tarnished somewhat by an ill-advised fourth movie, the first three films are certified classics and each one contains a variety of standout moments and choice one-liners. With Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford returning to shoot a fifth Indiana Jones film set to release in 2021 (please, please be good!), we thought it might be fun to take a look back at all four previous films (yes, we’re counting Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – it’s not great but it’s not terrible either) and their treasure trove of Easter eggs and hidden details you may not have uncovered.
