Movie Preview: Holy YOU KNOW WHAT — “Indiana Jones 5”

Our intrepid old man hero makes it into the Age of the Rolling Stones with no “Sympathy for the Devil,” or The Devil’s Hireling, Nazi Mads Mikkelsen.

I have been skeptical about this since its inception. Do we really need another…

And this gimmick, a time-controlling “dial?” GMAB.

But this trailer pushes so many of the right buttons that hope arises. Great villain, more Nazis getting their asses kicked so badly they become Republicans. Phoebe Waller-Bridge as a kickass sidekick. She “makes” this trailer.

A new director — James Mangold — takes on an iconic character.

Toby Jones, and John Rhys-Davies, one more time.

And Grandpa Harry Ford, still getting a dirty, mythological/archeological job done.

“Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” June 30.
