With just four instalments to its name (and a fifth to come in 2021) you would be forgiven for thinking that the timeline for the Indiana Jones franchise was fairly straightforward.
Well, get out your whips and crystal skulls because the adventure movies starring Harrison Ford have some surprising and complex twists in there. And we don’t just mean Temple of Doom being set before Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Settle down and discover just what happened to Indy and his chums over the years.
