Indiana Jones And Dial Of Destiny is set in 1969, 12 years after the events of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Indiana Jones, who is now a professor at Hunter College in New York City, is planning to retire after his marriage with Marion Ravenwood fell apart following the death of their son Mutt Williams in the Vietnam War. However, he is drawn into a new adventure when he learns that his old nemesis Jürgen Voller, a former Nazi scientist who is now working for NASA, is trying to find a mysterious artifact called the Antikythera mechanism, also known as the Dial of Destiny.

The Dial of Destiny is an ancient device that was invented by Archimedes to calculate and calibrate astronomical phenomena, but Voller believes that it can also be used to travel back in time and alter the outcome of World War II in favor of the Nazis. Indy teams up with his estranged goddaughter Helena Shaw, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who is also looking for the Dial of Destiny for her own reasons. Together, they race against time and Voller’s henchmen to find the artifact before it falls into the wrong hands. Along the way, they encounter old friends and foes, such as Sallah, played by John Rhys-Davies, and Mads Mikkelsen, who plays a mysterious character with a connection to Indy’s past.

The film is directed by James Mangold, who co-wrote it with Jez Butterworth, John-Henry Butterworth, and David Koepp. It is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Frank Marshall, Simon Emanuel, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas. The film features Harrison Ford in his final portrayal of Indiana Jones, as well as Antonio Banderas, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Ethann Isidore, and Karen Allen in supporting roles. The film’s score is composed by John Williams, who returns for his fifth collaboration with the franchise. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 18, 20231, and received mixed reviews from critics. It will be released in theaters on June 30, 20232.
