PARIS.- Cinema’s most famous archaeologist returns for a new adventure in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, presented out of competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
The American James Mangold directs this feature film in which Harrison Ford, under the guise of “Indy”, faces a new Nazi threat in the context of the Cold War.
The fifth and final installment of the saga starring Steven Spielberg and George Lucas – now producers of the project – “marks the great return of Harrison Ford to the red carpet, 15 years after the presentation of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Skull of crystal”, reviewed the Cannes Film Festival.
The American actor made history at the Cannes Film Festival in the 1970s, starring in Secret Conversation (1974) and Apocalypse Now (1979), two Palme d’Or-winning films by Francis Ford Coppola.
In the late 1960s, Dr. Jones (Harrison Ford) is hostile to the recruitment of former Nazis among NASA scientists as part of the space race.
Spurred on by his goddaughter Helena (Phoebe Waller-Bridge), the archaeologist goes in search of the Dial of Fate to thwart the plans of the ambitious Jurgen Voller (Mads Mikkelsen).
In this new feature film, the cult Star Wars and Blade Runner actor is directed by James Mangold. The American director and screenwriter, author of the blockbusters Logan and Le Mans 66, is presenting his first film at Cannes this year.
