Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny hits theatres next summer, but the first trailer for the film is already out.

Harrison Ford returns in the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones franchise. According to Empire, the film uses “de-aging technology” at the beginning of the film, which is set in 1944, in order to call back to 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark. The new film is set in 1969.

The plot of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is still unknown. Alongside Ford, the film stars 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”)

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny opens on June 30, 2023.


10 Fictional Dates from Movies Everyone Should Know

  • October 3 (Mean Girls)

    This is a truly momentous date in all of cinema. October 3 is now unofficially called #MeanGirlsDay across all of social media.

  • November 5, 1955 (Back to the Future)

    A true red-letter date, indeed. Even if you aren’t a Back to the Future superfan, you’re still at least aware of the importance of November 5, 1955.

  • December 25, 1985 (Rocky IV)

    AKA: The day Rocky Balboa ended the Cold War. [Cues John Cafferty’s “Hearts on Fire”] In all seriousness, though, did anyone else find it weird Rocky and Adrian didn’t bring their son to Russia for the fight?

  • December 24, 1988 (Die Hard)

    [Insert “Die Hard is a Christmas movie” rant here.] Again, in all seriousness, it’s hard to imagine action film history without this classic, regardless of where you fall in the Christmas film debate.

  • February 14, 2016 (Ghostbusters II)

    “Valentine’s Day. Bummer.” Side note: Hey, the world didn’t end! How about that for a silver lining?!

  • March 24, 1984 (The Breakfast Club)

    On this fateful day, a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal served detention. Teen films were never the same. We’ll never forget about this John Hughes gem.

  • April 8 (Empire Records)

    “We mustn’t dwell. No, not today. We can’t. Not on Rex Manning day!” Related thought: “Say No More, Mon Amour” is an undeniable bop. If you say otherwise, you’re simply lying to yourself.

  • April 25 (Miss Congeniality)

    Honestly, Miss Rhode Island isn’t wrong. All you really need is a light jacket. Depending on where you live, you may not even need the jacket! What a perfect date, indeed!

  • July 4, 1996 (Independence Day)

    “Perhaps, it’s fate today is the fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom.” Independence Day is so delightfully over the top, and this scene below perfectly encapsulates its melodrama.

  • August 29, 1997 (Terminator 2: Judgement Day)

    “On August 29, 1997, it’s gonna feel pretty f—ing real to you too!” A very dark scene, but on the plus side, there wasn’t an apocalypse in reality. So, yay?
