Ahead of its theatrical premiere in June, the highly anticipated Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will premiere at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival in May, according to a report from Variety.
The report notes that the fifth entry in the Indiana Jones franchise will follow in the footsteps of Top Gun: Maverick, and head overseas to showcase itself prior to its premiere. No exact date on when the film is set to screen has been set as of yet, but Variety notes that early plans are for it to premiere somewhere in the first few days of the festival, with potentially May 17-18 as the dates for its premiere.
Alongside Indiana Jones, Cannes Film Festival is once again set to host some of the biggest films of the year. Among them, the highly anticipated Martin Scorsese film Killers of the Flower Moon, Wes Anderson’s Asteroid City, and more. The Official Selection of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival will be revealed on April 13, 2023.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will once again be led by Harrison Ford as he reprises one of his most iconic roles as the titular explorer. Joining him as the female lead is Emmy and Golden Globe winner Phoebe Waller-Bridge. The final installment will also feature the introduction of other franchise newcomers Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, and Shaunette Renée Wilson.
The long-awaited film is being directed by Oscar nominee James Mangold (Logan) from a new screenplay he is co-writing with Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, who collaborated on Ford v Ferrari. Mangold took over the director’s chair after Steven Spielberg exited his directorial duties for the film. Despite his exit, Spielberg will still remain part of the film’s production as a producer.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will also be produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, and Simon Emanuel, with John Williams returning to score the film. It is set to be released in theaters on June 30, 2023.
