In the new installment of Indiana Jones and the Clock of Doom, Harrison Ford once again breathes life into his famous archaeologist character, this time alongside Fleabag star Phoebe Waller-Bridge.
In this fifth installment, directed by James Mangold, Jones returns, albeit seemingly reluctantly, to embark on a great adventure again, even though he thinks his action days are over.
Indiana Jones and the Clock of Doom takes place in 1969, when the space race reaches its boiling point. Famous archaeologist and adventurer Indiana Jones is troubled after the American government recruits former enemies from World War II in a desperate attempt to outwit the Soviet Union. One of them is Voller, a former Nazi and current member of NASA who is involved in the moon landing program and who is determined to reshape the world as he sees fit. But not when Indy has anything to say about it – he embarks on a dizzying race against time to thwart the Nazis, with the only (dubious) help he can count on from his godmother Helena.
The film is set to hit theaters on June 30, 2023. An impressive technique was used to rejuvenate the actor in flashback scenes.
The trailer opens with lines of a man trying to convince Indiana Jones to return to his life of adventure.
“I don’t believe in miracles, but there are things I can’t explain” the character says.
In one of the scenes, the professor can be seen galloping a horse, in another he rides on the roof of a moving train, in a third he brandishes his trusty whip in front of the muzzles of firearms.
Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Shonette Renee Wilson and Mads Mikkelsen – as the antagonist Voller – are part of the cast of the new film.
