Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny
  • Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, the fifth and final Indiana Jones film, takes audiences on a time-bending journey with gorgeous settings and iconic scenarios.
  • The film’s New York chase sequence was really shot in Glasgow, Scotland, with painstaking attention to detail to imitate 1969 America.
  • The home version of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will feature extras such as a making-of documentary and chapters that explore the film’s many locales and stunts.

Disney spared no cost in sending Harrison Ford’s final adventure as Indiana Jones, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, to some amazing locations. The film plays with historical periods to create spectacular scenes for the send-off, from a castle in the French Alps during the prologue with Indy and Basil Shaw’s escapades to the Siege of Syracuse by the Romans in 212 BC. Dr. Jones’ escape through the ticker-tape parade commemorating the Apollo 11 mission has to be one of the most strange sequences. Collider has obtained exclusive access to a new film that shows how James Mangold and his team transported the set back to 1969 for the famous moment.

Although the pursuit scenario takes place in New York, Mangold sent the team to Glasgow, Scotland, which had no lack of streets that could pass for the Big Apple with a little preparation. American flags were strung from windows, barricades were erected, and businesses were re-decorated to reflect 1969 America, a moment of strong national pride. The movie goes into depth on how everything in the actual set was modified, right down to the automobiles on the street, which includes throwback taxis, television news vans, ambulances, and much more. In the video, acclaimed production designer Adam Stockhausen, who earned an Oscar for his work on The Grand Budapest Hotel, emphasised the project’s massive scope.

On August 29, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be available digitally. View the unique video below:

The challenge of filming that sequence was as large as the magnitude itself, especially given the time constraints and the fact that it was shot on a busy Glasgow street. Aside from nailing the large elements, the art team went to great lengths to replicate even the slightest flourishes using models of the structures they wished to reproduce. Every each war protest sign, storefront, advertising, and other detail has to be handcrafted and carefully aged to give the world a lived-in appearance. The end effect is a realistic Manhattan complete with a ticker tape parade for Indy to ride through. Shaunette Renee Wilson called it the highlight of filming for The Dial of Destiny, and it’s one of the finished product’s outstanding moments.

There are several extras in The Dial of Destiny that may be explored.

With the home release of The Dial of Destiny later this month, fans can look forward to a wide variety of bonus materials, including this clip. A making-of documentary for the movie is divided into sections that examine how each of the distinctive locations and stunts that make up the adventure were made. The remaining chapters examine the explosive prologue that marks the archeologist’s return in de-aged fashion, the numerous stunts involved in Indy and Helena’s tuk-tuk chase of Voller in Morocco, their perilous journey into the Ear of Dionysius in Sicily with the assistance of their guide Renaldo, and finally that climactic finale which bids farewell to Indy in fantastical, dramatic fashion. Where Chapter 2 focuses on Ind

The Dial of Destiny, the first Indiana Jones film not created by George Lucas or directed by Steven Spielberg, sends the famed archaeologist on a last expedition to reclaim Archimedes’ Dial, which allows its owner to travel through time. He’s fighting Nazis again, this time in the shape of former Nazi astronomer J├╝rgen Voller, whom Indy and Basil met in the 1940s.

Indy and his estranged goddaughter Helena Shaw must race against time to save the dial from falling into the wrong hands since the scientist intends to use it to alter history indefinitely. The movie features newcomers Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Ethan Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen in addition to returning cast members John Rhys-Davies and Karen Allen, who are closing off their runs as John and Indy, respectively.
