Disney chose this year's Star Wars Celebration in London to debut a first look at the never-before-seen trailer and an extensive exclusive look at 'Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.'

Appearing in person were actors Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Mads Mikkelsen, director/co-writer James Mangold, and producer Kathleen Kennedy, with a message from star Harrison Ford, to reveal new details about the highly anticipated installment of the iconic franchise. The film, which will be Ford's final Indiana Jones adventure, will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday, May 18 and open in theaters on Friday, June 30.

In Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Ford returns as the legendary hero archaeologist, starring along with Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Ethann Isidore, and Mikkelson. Directed by Mangold, the film is produced by Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and Disney Legend George Lucas serving as executive producers. John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981, has once again composed the score.

"Entertainment reporter": What would you do with Archimedes dial? Harrison Ford: Never make another Indiana Jones movie.

No kidding. :rolleyes: I would love to know if anyone ever gets fired for this sort of thing? Just look at the pathetic performance of Indy 5 compared to its summer competition. Does Disney just pretend this is fine? Does Bob Iger care enough to fire some folks over this???

“Indy didn’t lose money…” the man said as he reached into his sleeve and, with a flick, produced a check endorsed for $150 million, “not when we have Disney Plus!”

We should get a definitive answer on this one next year with Deadline. Most of the other Disney movies are not write downs this year which puts us in the position of not seeing most of them in either his 'losing' or 'winning' competition. Strange World and John Carter were both written down 200 million, which I think are basically the worst Disney performers. This one I think will be a ~150 million write down, ultimately. All of these being everything being tallied up post theatrically included. Unless the D+ streaming rights are shockingly out of whack on this one.

Insane, what the movie's loss compared to Strange World and John Crater?

This is just really rough for Disney, and it's going to leave a dent in profits that can't be buffed out. 🫤 Here's the box office update for Indy 5 after this past weekend, and Indy is still operating deeply in the red. With a ridiculously bloated production budget of $300 Million, plus using an extremely conservative global marketing budget of only $100 Million, and using the 60/40 ticket take for domestic/overseas box office, Indy 5 is currently operating at a loss of $253 Million. Oof. https://www.the-numbers.com/

Based on Thursday preview trends, this weekend's box office for Indy 5 is going to be ugly. Fortune Magazine is saying it reflects directly on Bob Iger. Ouch. https://fortune.com/2023/07/19/disney-indiana-jones-dial-destiny-box-office-bomb-lucasfilm/

This weekend's box office is going to be brutal for Indy 5. Oppenheimer will likely take whatever is left of Indy's older customer demographic. https://www.slashfilm.com/1344685/indiana-jones-5-disneys-biggest-box-office-disaster-since-john-carter/ Going into this weekend, Indy 5 is barely.... hanging... on... to a very weak 3rd place. It will be interesting to see where Indy 5 lands domestically and globally by this Sunday evening. I'll update that box office here on Sunday, but until then... buckle up Mr. Ford.

I also think it's in line with the "revenge" travel we saw as destinations began to reopen. Lots of people did revenge movie going last year, and now a lot of people are focusing on other things to do and other areas to spend money. Add in the current cost of living, also a lot of people focusing on free / cheap activities. You are seeing the same thing with live theatre and entertainment, there is a softening happening right now. Lockdown times taught a lot of people that there are alternatives to these experiences, and in the case of movie theatres, you can often wait it out to stream or rent at a later date.
