It’s time for retirement, Dr. Jones.
Yes, Indiana Jones is hanging up his hat and his whip for good. Recent announcements about this fifth IndianaJones movies, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, have referred to it as the “final” film in the series. And now we know why; the film is about Indiana Jones settling down to enjoy his Golden Years. Time is very much not on Indy’s side after all these years.
Or maybe it is. Because, as the new Dial of Destiny trailer shows, on the day of Indy’s retirement, he reconnects with his goddaughter Helen (Fleabag’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge), who asks him to join her on the hunt for the Dial of Destiny, a mystical artifact that supposedly has the power to alter the course of history. Naturally, they are not the only ones who want it either; a bunch of former Nazis (who pretty much are the same as current Nazis, let’s be honest) led by Mads Mikkelsen want it too. That leads to a classic IndianaJones-style race around the world to get it.

There’s also a new poster for the film, done in the style of old school IndianaJones posters:
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
