Could Anna Kendrick be the next Indiana Jones? This video says 'absolutely'

Posted on

NBC

Anna Kendrick has moved on from cups to grails in a new Indiana Jones spoof in support of NBC’s upcoming Red Nose Day TV special.

In the video Kendrick is playing the titular character, now Indianna, in a “female reboot” of the popular film (because Ghostbusters made that a thing). Kendrick appears in the famous Grail Room scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade​, in which Indie must choose wisely which cup is really the Holy Grail or face certain death. Kendrick is being warned by the Templar Knight, who has been chilling in there for 700 years, or, since way back when saying things like “such a plain cup for such a pretty lady” wouldn’t get you a whip in the face.

NBC’s Red Nose Day special will air live on Thursday, May 21 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT.
