Trailer: Harrison Ford Returns for a Fifth Indiana Jones Film, Phoebe Waller Bridge is His Goddaughter in Final (?) Thriller


Indiana Jones is back in his fifth and maybe final thriller, “The Dial of Destiny.”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge is his goddaughter, a female “Indy,” which may set her up for another film. We’ll see.

The trailer hearkens back to the first three beloved Indiana Jones movies from Steven Spielberg. This one looks almost like an homage, directed by James Mangold. Since “Raiders of the Lost Ark” was itself an homage, to B movies from the 40s and 50s, this would be a meta homage!

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” premieres at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18th, and then opens around the world in June.
