Boyd Holbrook, who is one of the Indiana Jones stars and a friend of director James Mangold, saw footage of the new chapter of the saga with Harrison Ford. He found it magnificent.
What should we expect from Indiana Jones 5 when it finally hits our theaters? In May, Frank Marshall , the historical producer of the saga, told us something. Today, however, to express joy and enthusiasm is one of the performers: Boyd Holbrook , who was lucky enough to see half an hour of film.
We’ve known for a while about Boyd Holbrook ‘s presence in the cast of Indiana Jones 5 , even though we have no idea what role he’s going to play. The actor is certainly not a new face for TV series lovers, because he was one of the protagonists of Narcos , in which he was an American agent of the DEA on the trail of Pablo Escobar . Certainly, if he has had access to the footage, he must not be the very last wheel of the wagon in the economy of the narrative. Certainly the limelight is almost entirely for Harrison Ford, who could not fail to return, especially after the not excellent Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
Boyd Holbrook: “Indiana Jones 5 is a badass movie but also a passionate one”
At first Indiana Jones 5 was supposed to come out even in 2019, at least when it was thought that it would be directed by Steven Spielberg. Then the baton passed to James Mangold, who in any case is a good director, as demonstrated by Le Mans ’66 – The great challenge and especially Logan , in which Boyd Holbrook himself starred . Which Boyd Holbrook told Men’s Health :
“I can assure you that it’s going to be badass,” Holbrook said. “I got to see like half an hour of it when I went to L.A., and I saw Jim. You know, just look at his work: ‘Ford v Ferrari,’ it’s gonna be fast, it’s gonna be badass, and it’s gonna have heart. All of his films have this emotional beat in them, but we’ve got this grand scale of Indiana Jones.”
Holbrook ‘s comment is interesting, because sometimes, in adventure sagas, psychology is sacrificed in favor of the eventful scenes. Instead this time it seems that emotions will also have their space. We’ll see.
Indiana Jones 5 will be released on June 30, 2023, also starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge , Mad Mikkelsen , Antonio Banderas , Thomas Kretschmann , Toby Jones.
