Indiana Jones Takes Vanity Fair

Indiana Jones Takes Vanity Fair

Indiana Jones stars Harrison Ford and Shia LaBeouf take the February 2008 cover of Vanity Fair as photographed by none other than Annie Leibovitz.

Pictured below: Shia LaBeouf and Karen Allen on set in Downey, California. Allen returns as Marion Ravenwood, Indy’s spunky girlfriend from the first film, while Shia joins in”or so rumor has it”as Indy and Marion’s love child. Set in 1957, the new film pits Indy against Russian Cold Warriors, including Cate Blanchett, whose character, Agent Spalko, looks like the toughest Soviet customer since Lotte Lenya‘s Rosa Klebb took on Sean Connery in From Russia with Love.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull hits theaters worldwide on May 22nd.

    good point, she doesn’t need the money so you’d think kate would spend more time being a mother to her little ones. seems that’s how things in hollywood go tho, feed the ego before you take care of your family.

    i didn’t know indiana jones was supposed to have taken place back in the 50′s, i thought it was more recent. i haven’t seen it since i was a little kid tho so maybe i just didn’t get that part.

  • celebpsychic

    I hope this is a blockbuster.

  • yes

    I can’t wait.

  • Sandra

    Wowowow! I am so very very excited for this film! I’ve been a fan of Harrison Ford and the Indiana Jones films since I was a kid, and only pray that this film will live up to its (mostly) excellent predecessors. Thank you for posting this, must go out to find this issue as soon as possible!


    Yay! Looks awesome, I can’t wait for this film.

  • troy

    Words can’t even begin to describe how excited I am for this movie. “Vanity Fair” did the same kind of photo spread for “Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace” and I bought the issue even though it cost a sizable chunk of change. Looks like I’m going to have dig into my piggy bank once again and buy this issue.

  • margie

    i hope this one is good!

  • Jv

    holy crap the downey studios where they are in, are like 5 min away from my school, I can so walk there…COOL!

    cate blanchett has a GREAT job as a working mom-she works a couple months, and then gets months off at a time. Who else has such a luxury?

    And dang, little louis stevens on two VF covers within a year? Not bad kiddo!

  • http://I zelda

    I’m sorry, but harrison is too old to be shia’s dad. Shia looks 14 and Harrison looks 65. A good looking 65, but just old as the hills still.

  • http://I hmmmm

    I swear they photoshopped Shia’s face to high heaven-it doesn’t even look like him.

  • gia

    to #20 cate doesn’t need to work at all, that’s the point. she doesn’t even have to work a couple of months, she’s rich and set for life.

  • mp

    The fact that Cate doesn’t *have* to work doesn’t mean that she shouldn’t. She isn’t any less of a woman simply because she hasn’t defined herself as a mother only.

    Do you also lambaste Hollywood fathers who work, rather than parent 24/7?

  • Daniela

    yum i love shia. hes great! and this is the second time hes been on the cover of vanity fair in like the past 5 months or less

  • Madonna

    Can’t wait to see this!

  • she

    cant wait to see this and shia looks soooo cute as always

  • she

    shia looks sooo cute as always

    #24 i think ANY parent who doesn’t have to work man or woman, but still chooses to stay away from there kids for the hours and days these people have to work are less then stellar parents. it’s not like it’s a regular 8hr work day. my friend works in production and it very rarely is around 8hrs.. more like 10-12+
    but if seeing your children a few times a week is your idea of parenting then fine.. that is your opinion.
    i myself don’t *need* to work, however i fill my spare time partly with volunteer work. it seems a shame to not do something productive. nothing productive or helpful about dressing up and playing pretend for a living.. it’s basically a glorified court jester. when i do have children i plan on making them my first priority and giving them the time the need to develop properly.

  • Wanda

    Shia looks thoroughly effable in that picture. What a great way to start the new year.
