Now it’s official: Indiana Jones and the Quadrant of Destiny will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. The fifth film in the saga dedicated to the famous archaeologist played by Harrison Ford will hit theaters on June 28 in Europe and 30 in the United States, but will be presented over a month earlier, on May 18, on the Croisette. This was announced by the Festival itself with a post on its social channels.

The words of the director

For Mangold this is the second time at the Cannes Film Festival after 28 years: “In 1995 it was an honor for me to come to Cannes with my first film in the Directors’ Fortnight – said the director recalling his debut in France with Dolly’s Restaurant – Twenty-eight years later, I’m proud to be back with something a little more spectacular. My legendary collaborators and I are very excited to share a new latest Indiana Jones adventure with the public!”.


Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is directed by James Mangold and will see a Harrison Ford now over 80 give his final farewell to one of the characters who have marked his film career. Between quotes, tributes to the saga, news (for example, the entry into the cast of Phoebe Waller-Bridge in the role of Indy’s goddaughter), the trailer convinced a large part of the fans of the saga who were instead disappointed by the fourth chapter, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Indiana Jones 5the cast

Along with Harrison Ford and Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), the cast includes Antonio Banderas (Pain and glory), John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark), Toby Jones (Jurassic World – Fallen Kingdom), Boyd Holbrook (Logan – The Wolverine), Ethann Isidore (Mortal) and Mads Mikkelsen (Fantastic Beasts – Dumbledore’s Secrets). 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. The soundtrack is once again composed by John Williams, who has scored every Indiana Jones adventure since the original Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981.


Indiana Jones won’t be the only major title at Cannes. Even if it’s not official yet, the presence of Killers of the Flower Moon, new effort by Martin Scorsese with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro in the cast. The same goes for the new film by Wes Anderson, Asteorid City.
