The Hollywood entertainment industry has produced several successful franchises like the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Fast and Furious. Among them is an old and longest-running franchise Indiana Jones. It began with the 1981 film, Raiders of the Lost Ark and has continued with four more films over the next four decades, one of which is set to release in June this year.
Harrison Ford is an important part of the franchise. He is the star of Indiana Jones and is set to reprise his role as the adventurer and archaeologist in the upcoming film. Ford played the character since the 1981 movie, and the new movie Dial of Destiny is anticipated to be his final outing as the archaeology professor. The film had an early screening, and the reviews are out. And looks like the final film of the 80-year-old actor had resulted unexpectedly low.
