After many long years and a series of delays, the fifth (and almost certainly final) Indiana Jones film it’s almost there. Yesterday we saw proof that the movie is actually happening in the form of the first trailer. It revealed the title, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destinyand reminded us why we love iconic movies. Everyone’s talking about the trailer, but most of those people are talking about the old Harrison Ford and how he looks, somehow, good.
The use of CGI to make one actor look like another, or to make an actor look like a younger version of himself, has been around for years, but there has always been something missing. It often falls into the uncanny valley because it’s usually pretty impressive for what it is, but it usually falls short of perfection and that missing piece just throws it all away. But fans on Chirping mostly praise the young Indy we see in Quadrant of Destiny.
thats crazy, looks like it was pulled out of the 80s pic.twitter.com/g8bk1qJLmTDecember 1, 2022
It has been reported recently that the anti-aging technology would be used to make Harrison Ford he looks like the Indiana Jones we remember from the first three movies. While most of the new film’s plot is still a mystery, we do know Indy will have to deal with the remnants of a Nazi threatand so we’ll see where the story really began decades earlier.
This has made some fans nervous, because the whole thing the aging thing tends to feel wrong, but with a likely combination of technological advancement and practice, deaging appears to be doing much better. These short sequences from Quadrant of Destiny trailer actually looks pretty good.
The de-aging they did on Harrison Ford is so fucking good. My jaw is on the floor. pic.twitter.com/1seN0JT22ADecember 1, 2022
The fact that these shots are in the trailer means Lucasfilm didn’t expect to get many negative responses. They could have kept these shots out of the caravan if there was any fear they weren’t up to par. Nowadays, due to the extremely long period of time it can take to create CGI effects, the footage we get in trailers can often be unfinished and therefore not look good. But it seems that everyone is impressed here. A fan’s mom apparently he was pretty into CGI Indy.
And in general it seems that everyone is happy with how Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny he’s looking so far. Harrison Ford is 80 years old but you wouldn’t know by watching the trailer. The whole thing still feels like an Indiana Jones movie and fans are excited to see what comes next in this new adventure.
It’s okay not to want more, but the “why are we forcing Harrison Ford to be Indiana Jones again” criticism won’t fly. He’s the only character Harrison Ford loves, he’ll crash a plane into your house if you try to take him awayDecember 1, 2022
Harrison Ford has reiterated that this will, in fact, be his last ride as Indiana Jones. Considering the amount of time it took to get the fourth and fifth movies out, that’s no surprise. But knowing that this will be the end, the question of how this will end is one that must be on the minds of many.
I hope Indy dies in Indiana Jones 5. I hope Harrison Ford spends the rest of his career revisiting every character he’s ever played and just killing them off because that would be the funniest way to end such an epic careerDecember 1, 2022
We still have a full seven months left Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny arrives in cinemas. We know that there will be at least one more trailer that will probably give us a little more insight into what the plot is actually about and how the characters love Indy’s goddaughter, played by Phoebe Waller Bridgethey actually fit the story.
Harrison Ford said “no more Indiana movies” then Patrick Stewart did more Star Trek then Harrison said “bitch I’ll make another one”December 2, 2022
For fans who have followed Indiana Jones from the start this will be a bittersweet film as we finally say goodbye to Indy, but if it’s an adventure worthy of the character, it will be worth it.
