“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” Drops Action-Packed Official Trailer
As the official trailer for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny begins, our beloved archeology professor (and part-time adventurer, you might have heard) is retiring. As the Rolling Stones’ deathless “Sympathy for the Devil” plays, Indy and his goddaughter Helena (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) head to a bar for a drink to celebrate. Yet while Indy’s begrudgingly thinking of the softer, greener pastures of retirement, Helena has other things on her mind—a dial that Indy had come across on a train during World War II. A dial, Helena says, “that could change the course of history.” This being Indy, adventure awaits, even if he’s long past his prime.
The pursuit of the Dial of Destiny will set the fifth Indiana Jones film into action, and with Ford and Waller-Bridge playing our two heroes and the great Mads Mikkelsen as the villain Jürgen Voller, we are in good hands. The trailer reveals Voller siccing his henchman, Klaber (Boyd Holbrook) on Indy and Helena, which includes a motorcycle chase that turns into Indy on horseback—on the New York subway—trying like hell to outrun the 6 train. Good news for Indy; the 6 is a local.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny was directed by the very talented James Mangold, the first person not named Steven Spielberg to helm an Indiana Jones film. The Dial of Destiny is the fifth film in the franchise, following Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), The Temple of Doom (1984), The Last Crusade (1989), and The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
The Dial of Destiny, Milkkelsen’s Voller enthuses, can correct Hitler’s mistakes. So yeah, Voller is a terrible guy, a proper Indy villain, and the stakes are humanity itself. Joining the aforementioned cast are Antonio Banderas as an Indy ally Renaldo, Thomas Kretschmann as Colonel Weber, Toby Jones as Basil (Helena’s father), and John Rhys-Davies as Sallah.
It’s a ripping trailer and will leave all Indiana Jones fans properly enthused to see Ford’s last go-round in one of his most iconic roles.
Check out the trailer below. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny whips into theaters on June 30.
