Set photos from the upcoming Harrison Ford starrer Indiana Jones 5 reveal an explosive new set piece.
Principal photography on the long-awaited fifth chapter in the Indiana Jones film series is underway, this time under the direction of James Mangold (Logan, Ford v. Ferarri). Actor Harrison Ford has been spotted in numerous set photos donning the iconic fedora for the first time since the much-reviled fourth film Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Even more set photos from Indiana Jones 5 have surfaced the web, this time showcasing an exciting new set piece involving Northumberland’s historic Bamburgh Castle. Set photos showcase flames illuminating the sky for what looks to be an exciting new sequence that looks to include a World War-era motorbike, teasing that the film may involve flashbacks to the character’s iconic adventures from WWII.

With these new set photos surfacing the internet as well as the addition of Captain America star Toby Jones into the mix, it sure looks like Indiana Jones 5 is going back to basics with a more traditional adventure for the iconic character that harkens back to Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Here’s hoping no extra-terrestrials aren’t involved this time around.
Here is the synopsis for the last adventure in the series, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull:
STEVEN SPIELBERG and GEORGE LUCAS bring you the greatest adventurer of all time in “a nonstop thrill ride” (Richard Corliss, TIME) that’s packed with “sensational, awe-inspiring spectacles” (Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES). Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull finds Indy (Harrison Ford) trying to outrace a brilliant and beautiful agent (Cate Blanchett) for the mystical, all-powerful crystal skull of Akator. Teaming up with a rebellious young biker (Shia LaBeouf) and his spirited original love Marion (Karen Allen), Indy takes you on an action-packed adventure in the exciting tradition of the classic Indiana Jones movies!
Directed by Steven Spielberg with a script from David Koepp, the 2008 film stars Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Karen Allen, Ray Winstone, John Hurt, Jim Broadbent, and Shia LaBeouf.
Indiana Jones 5 is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on July 29, 2022. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for all the latest news on Lucasfilm’s upcoming projects, and subscribe to our YouTube channel for more video content in the future!
