I honestly, for the longest time, thought Indiana Jones was done, his story finished.

I mean, I know Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was no masterpiece but Indy got the love of his life, Marion (Karen Allen, who we all love too) back, he had a son, Mutt (Ok, Shia LaBeouf mightn’t have been the best choice), who looked set to one day pick up the mantle and that was that, all tidy and wrapped up.

But, when uncle George sold Lucasfilm to Disney, the rights to Indy went too and, low and behold, here we are, getting ready for Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. And look, no-one wants this to be a cracker more than we at FTN do, but we’ve been here before with Crystal Skull and are praying this isn’t history repeating itself.

We’ll all know for sure next summer.

Experience the return of the legendary hero, Indiana Jones, in the fifth installment of the beloved swashbuckling series.

Finding himself in a new era, approaching retirement, Indy wrestles with fitting into a world that seems to have outgrown him.

But as the tentacles of an all-too-familiar evil return in the form of an old rival, Indy must don the hat and pick up the whip once more to make sure an ancient and powerful artifact doesn’t fall into the wrong hands.

Harrison Ford returns as the legendary hero archaeologist in the highly anticipated fifth installment of the iconic “Indiana Jones” franchise, which is directed by James Mangold (“Ford v Ferrari,” “Logan”). Starring along with Ford are 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”). Directed by James Mangold, the film is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall and Simon Emanuel, with Steven Spielberg and George Lucas serving as executive producers. John Williams, who has scored each Indy adventure since the original “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in 1981, is once again composing the score.

Indy returns to the big screen on June 30th, 2023

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
