Directed by James Mangold, the film marks the fifth time Ford has played professor and adventurer Indiana Jones and comes 15 years after Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull also premiered in Cannes and the success of franchise was sealed.
In the latest outing for the Indiana Jones franchise, Phoebe Waller-Bridge stars as Indiana Jones’ goddaughter dragging the archeologist out of retirement.
Ford also attended Cannes in 1985 to tout his appearance in Peter Weir’s crime thriller Witness, in which he played a police detective called upon to protect an Amish woman (Kelly McGillis) and her son.
