“I Vant to Know!”

We were lucky enough to see Kingdom of the Crystal Skull at the first matinee on Thursday, and are happy to report that Cate Blanchett was absolutely phenomenal as Agent Irina Spalko. Her accent was impeccable, the portrayal a delicious mix of sinister and sexy and overall a wonderful addition to the lore of the Indy franchise.

What did you think of the film and Blanchett’s portrayal? Please leave your thoughts in the comments if you so desire.

Sugary Spalko Sweetness

The only thing better than watching the evil and alluring Agent Spalko on screen might be to… drink her sweet nectar, or something. Now that everyone is sufficiently uncomfortable, have a look at Agent Spalko as the centerpiece for Dr. Pepper’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull marketing campaign.

Agent Irina Spalko is sent by leaders of the Soviet Union to uncover the legendery Crystal Skulls which are believed to be the key to an ancient Alien civilisation. Hoping to harness the extra terrestrial weapon for the cold war, Spalko uses Indiana Jones as a guide through the jungles of deepest Peru where they encounter a swarm of Bull Ants, lethal guards of the Temple of Akator and a face from Indy’s past!
