Harrison Ford brought back the famous Indiana Jones character this weekend with "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny" box office but the movie didn't do as well as was expected. This weekend, Disney's "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny" opened at the top of the box office in the United States, making a disappointing $60 million. Studio figures say that the action movie made $70 million overseas, for a total of $130 million around the world. This is a bad start for the tentpole, which is said to have a $300 million budget.

The fifth movie in the Indiana Jones series made $24 million on its first day in 4,600 theaters. Of that, $7.2 million came from previews on Thursday night. It is expected to make $60 million in the first three days it is on screens. But since it cost $295 million to make, it will be hard for the movie to make money at the box office.
It did better than the other "Indiana Jones" movies: "The Last Crusade" in 1989 ($29.4 million), "Temple of Doom" in 1984 ($25.3 million), and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" in 1981 ($8.3 million), according to Comscore. But none of these numbers are changed to account for inflation.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is the most expensive Indiana Jones movie so far, even when inflation is taken into account. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which came out in 2008, was the second most expensive movie in the series. It cost $185 million to make, which is about $261 million in 2023 dollars. It made $790 million around the world ($1.1 billion when prices are changed for inflation). Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will have to work hard for the rest of its worldwide release window if it wants to come close to those numbers.
Other movies that should do well at the box office this weekend include Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which is expected to bring in $11.7 million in its fifth weekend, Elemental, which is expected to bring in $3.4 million and is still doing well after having Pixar's worst opening ever, and No Hard Feelings, which is expected to bring its domestic total to $28 million with $7.1 million.
In "Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny," directed by James Mangold, Harrison Ford plays Indy one last time on a dangerous mission to get a valuable treasure. Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Ethann Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen all play minor roles in the movie.
The latest "Indiana Jones" movie was shown for the first time at the Cannes Film Festival in May. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a 68% rating, and CinemaScore found that viewers gave it an average grade of B+.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is the first Indiana Jones movie to come out in more than 15 years. In the 1980s, the first three movies in the series came out. This is the first movie in the series that Steven Spielberg did not direct. Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Antonio Banderas, John Rhys-Davies, Toby Jones, Boyd Holbrook, Ethann Isidore, and Mads Mikkelsen all play in Dial of Destiny, which was directed by James Mangold.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is mostly set in the late summer of 1969, when Jones is getting ready to retire. It tells the story of how, after years of not going on crazy adventures or looking for treasure, he gets sucked into yet another crazy situation that has to do with - what else? - his time-fighting Nazis in World War II.
Before The Dial of Destiny fully focuses on Indy's present, it starts in the 1940s, when Jones and his archaeologist friend Basil Shaw (Toby Jones) are caught by Hitler's men while trying to steal a famous and biblical artifact from them.

Conclusion

Even though Disney/Lucas films' Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is on track to hit the bottom of its tracking projection of $60M on Sunday morning, this is a terrible result for the last film in a long-running series. This weekend is the halfway point of the summer movie season. When it started, people thought it might be 20 percent better than the summer of 2022. So far, the overall amount made this season is just a little less than it was last year.
