Harrison Ford manages to delight in the Super Bowl spot for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, even though it’s just a 30 second recut of the longer trailer released earlier this month.
It kicks off with Indy delivering a great line: “My memory’s a little fuzzy … are you still a Nazi?” Then immediately the fisticuffs start flying.
It’s the fifth film in the Indiana Jones saga, begun in 1981 with Raiders of the Lost Ark. More than 40 years later, Ford still commands respect in the role, enhanced by new technology that deages him from his current 80 years to his 40 year old self from back then. It is so well done that the “uncanny valley” effect is apparently behind us as movie-goers.
Harrison Ford returns as the legendary hero archaeologist in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the iconic “Indiana Jones” franchise, which is directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”). Starring along with Ford are Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”), Antonio Banderas (“Pain and Glory”), John Rhys-Davies (“Raiders of the Lost Ark”), Shaunette Renee Wilson (“Black Panther”), Thomas Kretschmann (“Das Boot”), Toby Jones (“Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”), Boyd Holbrook (“Logan”), Oliver Richters (“Black Widow”), 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, is once again composing the score.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is scheduled to open in theaters on June 30.
