The year is 1957, a time of the Cold War, anti-communism hysteria, and Indiana Jones (Harrison Ford of Indiana Jones and the Raiders Of The Lost Ark , Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) is on another adventure as he is hauled into Area 51 by KBG agents to find an artifact that is stored in a cavernous warehouse. The team is lead by Irina Spalko (Cate Blanchett of The Lord of the Rings : The Fellowship of the Ring), a leader in paranormal research for her Socialist empire, as she calls it. There is much mistrust going on when Indy and his companion, ‘Mac’ George Michale (Ray Winstone) ask for gunpowder to lead them to the artifact, as it is highly magnetic, and the powder will lead the way. Once they find the box, Agent Spalko opens it only to find the remains of an alien body. This is no ordinary alien. This is the body of one of the aliens found in Roswell, New Mexico ten years before. Indy was working as a specialist on that case then, but ten years later, he is still very much in the dark about what went on there. More mistrust occurs when Mac turns on him for payment by the KGB, as Mac has amassed some gambling debts the Russians are willing to pay off. There is much bullets and blood and mayhem as Indy makes his escape, and he finds himself in a fake suburban town populated with manniquins. The Howdy Doody show is running on the black and white TV, but that little theme song is drowned out by sirens, and Indy has no time to escape what is coming. He dives into a lead-lined refrigerator, and is thrown from the nuclear test blast that annihilates the fake town. Somehow, he manages to make it back home to Connecticut and is teaching again at Marshall College when Dean Charles Stanforth (Jim Broadbent of The Borrowers) approaches Indy about all the chaos he is causing with the government agencies and the board of regents. The FBI has gotten involved and it has caused such an uproar that in order for Indy to keep his job, the Dean was forced to resign.
