Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

  • Release: May 23, 1984
  • Director: Steven Spielberg

The danger and adversity only intensifies in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Another exciting collaboration between George Lucas and Steven Spielberg, Temple of Doom brought Harrison Ford back with new friends and new enemies.

A 1930s adventure set in the depths of India, Indy and his friends investigate the strange disappearances of children from a small village. As the mystery leads them within a foreboding temple, Indy is in for a challenge, with alligators, creepy-crawlies, menacing villains, a precarious mine tunnel, and even supernatural powers.

With groundbreaking special effects technology, Temple of Doom was a critical stage in the development of more refined optical effects, such as making a mine cart seemingly fly through the air. A character for all time, Indy promised the greatest of adventures and the most fantastic of spectacles.


With his companions Willie Scott and Short Round, Indiana Jones is on the run when their group stumbles across a village in the depths of India with an alarming mystery. After the theft of their sacred Sankara stone, the village’s children were kidnapped. Indy decides to set out to rescue them along with the sacred stone, following clues deep within a temple that hides more terrors than simple booby traps…

Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.
