Must read

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is eyeing a premiere at the Cannes festival, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The French festival will run from May 16-27, with Dial of Destiny eying a day two or day three debut.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull debuted at the fest 15 years ago. A year ago, Paramount’s Top Gun: Maverick, was screened at Cannes. And in 2018, Lucasfilm brought Solo: A Star Wars to the fest.

Dial of Destiny once again stars Harrison Ford as Jones, with Phoebe Waller-Bridge joining the franchise as the archaeologist’s goddaughter. Filmmaker James Mangold directed the feature, which centres on 70-year-old Indiana Jones. (Ford is 80 in real life.)

Mangold previously said about presented an older Indy, “It’s not just a movie about a hero in his twilight years who is called back into action. It’s more than just that his bones might ache, it’s that his soul might ache, or that some of his optimism or sense fitting into the world might have evaporated.”

Ford previously starred in four Steven Spielberg-directed features: Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), Temple of Doom (1984), The Last Crusade (1989) and Crystal Skull (2008).
