According to “Variety,” Steven Spielberg has viewed “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” the fifth installment in the venerable adventure series and, crucially, the first one not to be directed by him.
James Mangold, who also directed “Ford v Ferrari” and “The Wolverine,” took up the direction of “Dial of Destiny.” Anyone concerned that a “Indiana Jones” film without Steven Spielberg might not be successful can now relax because Spielberg himself reportedly enjoyed the most recent sequel, according to “Variety.”
Spielberg was asked at the Time 100 Summit what it's like viewing a “Indiana Jones” film he didn't direct, and he said, “I just had that experience two nights ago.
I attended a screening that Bob Iger hosted for several Disney execs, along with filmmaker James Mangold. Everyone praised the film. 'Indiana Jones' is a fantastic, really wonderful movie. Spielberg reportedly told 'Variety', 'I'm incredibly pleased of what Jim has done with it.
According to Spielberg, “When the lights came on, I simply turned to the group and exclaimed, “Damn! I believed I was the only one who could create one of them.
According to “Variety,” “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny” takes up with Harrison Ford's renowned archaeologist in the late 1960s as he is enticed back into an adventure to halt the rise of Nazis. Antonio Banderas, Mads Mikkelsen, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge are among its supporting actors.
The movie is the first “Indiana Jones” release since Steven Spielberg's 2008 global box office smash “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
According to “Variety,” Spielberg started the “Indiana Jones” series in 1981 with “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” which featured a plot that was co-written with George Lucas. 'Temple of Doom' from 1984, 'Last Crusade' from 1989, and 'Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' from 2008 are the three sequels the two went on to produce together.
