The film is scheduled for release on June 30, 2023. The trailer opens with some classic, death-defying Indy antics as he jumps between speeding tuk tuk cars. There are also shots of him running along a moving train and riding a motorcycle in the rain after a plane, but “those days have come and gone,” Ford says as a retired Indy who has stuck to teaching, reports’Variety, also the trailer showcases a de-aged Harrison Ford as Indy back in his glory days of archaeology and adventures. In the new installment, Ford reprises the iconic role after around 15 years. The movie is the sequel to Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
“I don’t believe in magic, but a few times in my life I’ve seen things. Things I can’t explain,” he narrates over first-looks at villains played by Mads Mikkelsen and Antonio Banderas, plus Indy’s goddaughter, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. John Williams’ iconic “Indiana Jones” score crashes in as Indy picks up his fedora, narrowly avoids a train on horseback and bullwhips some henchmen to close out the trailer. Indiana’s latest outing is set in the 1960s during the Space Race between the U.S. and Soviet Russia. Unlike previous films, George Lucas did not write the story for “Indiana Jones 5” and Steven Spielberg is not the director. Instead, both of those roles will be filled by James Mangold, who is known for his films like ‘Logan’, ‘Ford vs. Ferrari’, ‘3:10 to Yuma’ and more.
Not only is “Indiana Jones 5” the last hurrah for 80-year-old Ford, but also 90-year-old composer Williams, who confirmed the film would likely be his last. Whatever the end result, we’ll have to wait until either the first footage of the movie premieres to see for ourselves, or maybe until its eventual June 30 release date
