Steven Spielberg Loved ‘Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny’
Stephen Spielberg has seen the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny and given the film his stamp of approval.
The fifth installment in the Indiana Jones franchise, Dial of Destiny will be the first entry not helmed by Spielberg.
Instead, the legendary director has turned the franchise over to The Wolverine and Ford V Ferrari director James Mangold.
Spielberg Praises Dial of Destiny
Spielberg recently saw the film at a screening held by Disney CEO Bob Iger. When asked how it was watching an Indiana Jones movie that he didn’t director, Spielberg was effusive in his praise.
“I just had that experience two nights ago,” Spielberg said at the Time 100 Summit. “Bob Iger had a screening for a lot of the Disney executives, and I came to the screening along with the director James Mangold. Everybody loved the movie. It’s really, really a good ‘Indiana Jones’ film. I’m really proud of what Jim has done with it.”
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will see Harrison Ford don his iconic hat as he is drawn back into adventure.
“When the lights came up I just turned to the group and said, ‘Damn! I thought I was the only one who knew how to make one of these,” Spielberg added.
The supporting cast of the film includes Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, and Antonio Banderas.
Indy’s Return To Theaters
Dial of Destiny will be the first Indiana Jones film since the Spielberg-directed Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull in 2008. That film grossed $790 million worldwide.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is set for release on June 30. Harrison Ford has publically stated that the film will mark the last time he plays the character.
