Steven Spielberg doesn't Kill Original Indy in Indiana Jones 5

Indiana Jones 5 Spoiler

Steven Spielberg said in an interview that he is not killing off Harrison Ford in the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 movie, which was a direct jab at the J.J. Abrams produced Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, where Han Solo dies.

This is both a spoiler and a confirmation that Indiana Jones 5 movie does have a green light. The movie database, IMDB.com shows that Indiana Jones 5 is slated to be released on July 19, 2019. The IMDB page for Indiana Jones 5 (seen here) is obviously in early form, with only one star currently attached to it (Harrison Ford).

Will Shia LeBeouf be in the upcoming Indiana Jones 5 movie with Harrison Ford?

That is unknown at this point. However, judging based on the storyline of the last movie, they may leave Shia LeBeouf out of this one altogether or they are in talks to get him involved in this project.

Read about the stolen storyline and how Shia LeBeouf was disappointed with his own performance in Indiana Jones 4 here.

Description of Star Wars: The Force Awakens Two LP Hologram Vinyl

What makes the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 LP vinyl so special?
What makes the holograms so special is that the grooves in the vinyl record records light, in the same manner that the vinyl record grooves produce sound.

Will the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 LP vinyl go up in price?
Will the Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2 LP vinyl increase in value?
It could. This is a limited production, so if the supply does not meet the demand, it could very well make the price increase in the public marketplace. It currents sells $47.99 on Amazon.com, but it is currently "out of stock" - an indicator that it is selling very quickly. The Amazon.com sale of this also includes a digital .mp3 of all of the music tracks as well. If you want just the .mp3 music, it is $7.99.
