The most important approval has arrived for James Mangold: the approval of Indiana Jones’ foster father, Steven Spielberg. The legendary director who signed the previous chapters of the most famous adventure film saga in history reveals that he has already watched and greatly appreciated Indiana Jones and the Quadrant of Destinydirected by James Mangold precisely.
“I thought I was the only one who knew how to do it”, he confessed (perhaps with a hint of regret). This ingenious sentence was exclaimed by him at the end of the special screening of the film.
The responsibility that weighed on Mangold’s shoulders was enormous: to be the first director to direct a film by Indiana Jones after all the chapters personally filmed by Steven Spielberg it is indeed a great honor, but also imagine what a huge burden we are talking about…
Yet it seems that James Mangold has managed not to disappoint Spielberg.
The American director wanted to praise the work of his very first successor by expressing himself in enthusiastic terms on the occasion of the Time 100 Summit, held on April 25 in New York.
Spielberg’s line: “Damn! I thought I was the only one capable of making one of these films”
“I was able to have this great experience two nights ago,” Spielberg told the Time 100 Summit organized in New York referring to an exclusive screening before the release of the film. “Bob Iger held an exclusive screening for many Disney executives and I I took part in it together with director James Mangold Everyone loved the film and I can say it too, this is a really good film by Indiana Jones. I’m very proud of what James has achieved,” said Steven Spielberg.
The final line was also mythical, a fulmen in clause that knocked everyone out: “When the lights went on, after the screening, I looked at the others and exclaimed ‘Damn! I thought I was the only one capable of doing one of these films'”.
The film will have its world premiere at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival
Indiana Jones and the Quadrant of Destiny will have its world premiere at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, scheduled for May. It will then arrive in Italian cinemas on June 28th.
It will once again be the legendary Harrison Ford to step into the shoes of the most famous archaeologist on the big screen. This new chapter in the film saga will be the longest of the entire epic, with a duration of approximately 143 minutes (equal to more than two hours and 20 minutes).
The fifth chapter will be the last of the saga and Harrison Ford has already confirmed that he has concluded his experience as Indy. Farewell tears are in order.
