Indiana Jones 4: World Premiere in 2008 Cannes Film Fest

February 29, 2008–The fourth chaptert of Steven Spielberg’s action-adventure will debut at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, May 18.

That’s four days before “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” opens day-and-date worldwide May 22. The high-profile cast includes Harrison Ford, Shia LaBeouf and Cate Blanchett.

Paramount execss are confident that as soon as fest programmers see the final print, the deal will be sealed for the studio to launch the tentpole in Cannes. Spielberg, who is still editing and scoring the film, has not shown “Indy 4” to anyone yet.

The last time a Spielberg movie was in Cannes was in 1982, when “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” showed there.
