‘Indiana Jones 5’ Joins ‘The Flash’ As Summer 2023 Box Office Bomb

Farewell, Dr. Jones!

Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny has finally been released in theaters, though reception may not be entirely what Lucasfilm was hoping for. The end to Harrison Ford’s Indiana Jones saga bombed at the box office, joining The Flash as it fails to even reach eight figures in its third week.

Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny was shot in the leg following a middling reception at the Cannes Film Festival, and it seems the film was unable to recover. Harrison Ford’s final outing as Dr. Jones only managed to earn $60 million dollars at the domestic box office, netting only $130 million globally. This is less than half of Indiana Jones and The Kingdom of The Crystal Skull, which made $272.1 million globally in its opening weekend.

Indiana Jones and The Dial of Destiny is rumored to have a similar budget to The Flash, which barely manages to hobble forward in its third weekend, grossing only $5 million. Given how fast the latter has been dropping off in theaters, it’s likely that Harrison Ford’s farewell won’t be recouping its cost.

The Future of Indiana Jones

In addition to Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Disney and Lucasfilm are also developing a new series set within the same world as the films. The series is being envisioned as a prequel to 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark, with a young version of Abner Ravenwood taking on a central role. Abner is the father of Karen Allen’s Marion Ravenwood and the mentor of Indiana Jones.

If the television series ends up moving forward, the Indiana Jones franchise would be returning to the small screen for the first time since the 1990s. Indy was previously the face of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles on ABC, as well as four television specials from the Family Channel, the network that is now known as Freeform. Harrison Ford made an appearance in one episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, which also starred Sean Patrick Flanery, Corey Carrier, and George Hall, with the four actors playing the titular hero across various stages of his life.

Directed by James Mangold, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny also stars Mads Mikkelsen, Thomas Kretschmann, Boyd Holbrook, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Toby Jones. Mangold co-wrote the script alongside Jez Butterworth and John-Henry Butterworth.
