Indiana Jones And The Last Crusade Is Coming To Netflix Next Month

There are four films in the Indiana Jones franchise (three if you're not counting the heavily panned last one) and people constantly argue which is the best.

Each film delivers iconic moments like the boulder run, the monkey brains, the Nazi bloke melting, the snakes, flying a plane and dodging spears and of course hearing that high pitched 'INDYYYYYYYYY'.

Well, we're hoping Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade is your favourite because that is coming to Netflix in Australia next month.

It explores Indy's quest to find the Holy Grail after his dad, played by Sean Connery, was kidnapped by the Nazis. It was one hell of a film.

The Last Crusade was so good that it won an Academy Award for Best Sound Effects Editing. It also earned $474 million in the Box Office - so you know it was bloody popular.

Well, it'll hit the streaming service on June 1.

But if that's not your bag, then maybe you're excited about the fifth, yes fifth, instalment to the franchise.

Academy-award winning director Steven Spielberg has confirmed that filming will start this year, as Harrison Ford reprises his role as the protagonist we all know and love.

Ford last appeared in a 'Jones' film in 2008's Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which saw him step into the famous archeologist's boots for the first time since 1989.

Spielberg was at the Empire Awards in London, collecting a Legend Of Our Lifetime prize when he made the announcement.

As the Mail reports, he told the audience: "It's always worth the trip when I get to work with this deep bench of talent coming out of the UK.

"The actors, and the crew, the chippies, the sparks, the drivers - everybody who has helped me make my movies here, and will continue helping me make my movies here when I come back in April 2019 to make the fifth Indiana Jones movie right here."

The Indiana Jones films have raked in well over a billion dollars since Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark came out in 1981. Highly acclaimed, it garnered nine Oscar nominations, and went on to win four technical awards.

Indiana Jones has been so popular as a franchise that he was crowned the greatest film character of all time. Don't hate us, they're just the results.

Veteran actor Harrison Ford was lucky enough to bag two roles in the top five, as his other lovable rogue created by George Lucas, Han Solo, made third in the list.
