Lucasfilm’s “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” starring Harrison Ford (for the final time) as the legendary hero archaeologist and directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari” & “Logan“), will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, May 18th. This comes after the announcement that Martin Scorsese’s “Killers Of The Flower Moon” would also play at this year’s festival. The beloved franchise’s highly anticipated final installment- a big, globe-trotting, rip-roaring cinematic adventure—will screen out of competition. “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” will open in theaters on June 30th.
Mangold said, “In 1995, I was honored to come to Cannes with my first film as part of Director’s Fortnite. Twenty-eight years later, I am proud to return with a slightly larger spectacle. My legendary collaborators and I are very excited to share a brand new and final Indiana Jones adventure with you!”
Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory“), John Rhys-Davies (“The Lord Of The Rings“), Toby Jones (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom“), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan“), Ethann Isidore (“Mortel”) and Mads Mikkelsen (“Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore“). Directed by James Mangold, the film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serving as executive producers. John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, has once again composed the score.
