Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was a 1984 prequel to the hugely successful action movie Raiders of the Lost Ark. Like the first, it starred Harrison Ford as professor Indiana Jones, was written by George Lucas and directed by Steven Spielberg. It is much darker in tone than its predecessor (a fact which Lucas attributes to the messy divorce he was going through during the film's production), and has been criticised for being overly violent and scary. However, there are still many moments of comedy and daring escapes.

Other actors included Kate Capshaw, Ke Huy Quan (Vietnamese boy, also in The Goonies, [1]), and Dan Aykroyd (cameo).
