“Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981): In the first installment of the series, which won four Oscars including for visual effects and film editing, Indiana Jones is tasked by U.S. Army intelligence to track down an invaluable staff that is the key to locating the Ark of the Covenant, which is being sought by the Nazis.
“Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom” (1984): After fleeing a nightclub shooting and being dropped out of an abandoned plane, Prof. Indiana Jones, singer Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) and 12-year-old Short Round (Ke Huy Quan) find themselves in a starving Indian village, whose inhabitants blame their plight on the loss of three mystical stones that have always brought the village prosperity. Jones vows to return the stolen rocks — which brings him and his unlikely cohorts face-to-face with a deadly cult.
“Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989): Indy’s Nazi enemies are back and have kidnapped his father, Prof. Henry Jones Sr. (Sean Connery), in their effort to locate the sacred Holy Grail. Following a trail from America to Venice to the deserts of the Middle East, it’s up to Indy (Harrison Ford) to save his father, save the Grail and save the day in this non-stop, action-packed adventure the whole family will treasure.
“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull” (2008): Dr. Henry Indiana Jones is called back into action when he becomes entangled in a Soviet plot to uncover the secret behind mysterious artifacts known as the Crystal Skulls.
“The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones” (1992-96): At the dawn of the 20th century, Indiana Jones (Sean Patrick Flanery) discovered the world. From globetrotting family expeditions as a 9-year-old to the battlefields of World War I as a teenager, Indy’s experiences shaped the heroic, whip-cracking archaeologist he would become. At every turn, Indy encounters history in the making, meeting true-life activists, soldiers, writers, artists and thinkers who helped influence the world we live in today.
