Desired or feared, “Indiana Jones 5” will see the light of day. While we still do not know what story Harrison Ford might be embarked on, photos from the set suggest that the film could take a turn in “Back to the Future”.
Indiana Jones : from the acclaimed trilogy … to the extra part
Do you know what franchising has in common Die Hard and that ofIndiana Jones ? The two sagas experienced one episode too many, the one that called everything into question. Indeed, you have to remember what it was Indiana Jones in the 80s. Project headed by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas after the two friends had a long discussion during their vacation in Hawaii, the saga has marked millions of spectators until today.
Thereby, The Raiders of the Lost Ark, the first part of the franchise, saw the light of day in 1981 and became the biggest success of that year. Subsequently, two other episodes will emerge: Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom in 1984 and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade in 1989. The two films then turn the saga devoted to the adventurer into an almost perfect trilogy of the 7th art. A rare thing in Hollywood.
This immunity totem will last for 19 years. Until the exit ofIndiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. A fourth opus as expected as hated after its release, in the style of Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace or Die Hard 4: Back to Hell. Thus, between an aging Indy, insignificant supporting roles, improbable stunts and “the episode of the fridge”, this component number 4 was clearly not unanimous. And this, even if it was once again worn by Steven Spielberg and George Lucas.
We could then have said that the franchise would stop there. Except that 4 years later, Disney acquires LucasFilm and therefore decides to start a fifth opus with an almost octogenarian Harrison Ford. It promises…
Indy facing Roman soldiers?
While recently a series of photos from the set showed Harrison Ford and Mads Mikkelsen, additional footage from the fifth film has emerged. the Daily Mail has unveiled photos that show the iconic actor of the saga alongside the actress Phoebe Waller-Bridge, revealed with Fleabag. So far, nothing surprising. Except other pictures show extras dressed in the uniform of ancient Roman soldiers.
When we know that the plot of the series Indiana Jones is most often in the 50s and 60s, there is reason to wonder about the presence of these Roman soldiers on the film set.
From there came the unthinkable rumor of time travel, according to several Internet users. There would be something to be surprised about, although the saga has often involved fantastic elements in its plots. Indeed, between black magic in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom or the Aliens in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the saga has often indulged in some fantasies of this kind.
The possibility of time travel could however be an additional daring for the franchise. When we know, in addition, that another rumor could show a digitally rejuvenated Indy, we say to ourselves that we will have to expect everything with this fifth opus.
