Indiana Jones is back!

It’s Indiana Jones week with the worldwide release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny only in cinemas on 30th June! Fans (myself included) can rewatch the existing four movies directed by Steven Spielberg (Jaws) on Disney+.

I passed on Raiders of the Lost Ark in favour of Clash of the Titans and Dragonslayer in the summer of 1981. Mythical and space monsters reigned supreme in my life. It wouldn't be until Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, with its infamous leaning into full-blown horror, that I would become an Indy fan.

Spielberg has passed the baton to James Mangold (Logan) for the fifth and final instalment in the Lucasfilm franchise created by George Lucas (Star Wars).

Aside from John Williams’ epic soundtrack, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull was a big disappointment for many fans upon release in 2008.

Williams is back to compose the music for the man in the hat played by Harrison Ford. Ever since Star Wars a new Williams soundtrack is something I always look forward to. This may be one of the composer's last.

Will Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny rekindle that nostalgic matinee movie magic first conjured up in Raiders of the Lost Ark? Stay tuned for Nick Smith's review coming soon.

Are you looking forward to Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny? Let me know in the comments below.
