The world premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” took place last Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival. Lucky attendees got to see the film before the rest of the world, along with the cast and crew which included Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, and newcomer Ethann Isidore. Fans are anxiously awaiting the worldwide release on June 30th.
The big question on everyone’s mind is whether or not the movie is any good. Did James Mangold create a film worthy of the franchise, or did the cast want to get into a fridge and fly away at the end of the evening? Initial reactions suggest that the film has been well-received.
According to reports from attendees, the film is action-packed, and brings the same energy and excitement that the previous Indiana Jones films did. Fans of the franchise will not be disappointed.
None other than Indiana Jones himself was in attendance, as was co-writer and director James Mangold, who took center stage as the film premiered. Mangold received praise for his directing skills, with some viewers calling it one of the best Indiana Jones films yet.
The film itself remains shrouded in secrecy, with not much information being released about the story itself. However, the buzz surrounding the film is palpable, and fans are eagerly counting down the days until they can see the artifacts-carrying archaeologist on the big screen once again.
In the meantime, fans can check out other exciting franchise releases such as Marvel, Star Wars, and Star Trek, as well as the future of the DC Universe on film and TV, and everything they need to know about the future of Doctor Who, on io9.
Overall, the world premiere of “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” was an exciting event for fans of the franchise, and an encouraging sign for what is sure to be a thrilling return for Indiana Jones himself.
