Emotional Harrison Ford Receives Five-Minute Standing Ovation in the Premiere of the Last Indiana Jones
It’s the end of an era. At the 2023 Cannes Festival, the last Indiana Jones movie got its premiere. And it’s a farewell for Harrison Ford in the role of Dr. Henry Walton “Indiana” Jones, Jr. It was an emotional moment for everyone involved.
The first Indiana Jones movie came out in 1981 and instantly gained a lot of fans. And Harrison Ford became a cultural icon because of it. But now, in 2023, the movie premiered its last sequel after four previous hits.
In the screening of the premiere of the fifth and final movie, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Ford received a well-deserved recognition with a five-minute standing ovation, leaving him emotional. In an interview, he said, “I’m very moved by this. They say when you’re about to die, you see your life flash before your eyes, and I just saw my life flash before my eyes.”
It’s safe to say that’s impressive how Harrison Ford can still deliver a great performance in an action movie at 80 years old. But the movie is not only about sweat and jumps, as he said “Indiana Jones movies are about fantasy and mystery, but they’re also about heart. We have a really great story to tell.” And we can’t wait to see it.
