Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny Big Game Spot reaction
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny received a quick trailer during the Superbowl but it confirms a key detail that fans have been speculating about since the first trailer came out. Indiana Jones does know Voller, the villain of the film played by Mads Mikkelsen.
This revelation comes very early in the trailer’s short run time, with Indy recognising Voller in some kind of building, simply with the word “you.” Whatever Indy’s encounter with Voller was, it wasn’t a good one.
Voller himself is confused, clearly forgetting that Indy ever existed, to which Indy replies that his memory is a little fuzzy. There is a quick cut to the train sequence from the first trailer, where Indy punches someone across the face, presumably Voller. There is so much more to learn about this character, his plans and what his past with Indy is.
The trailer then goes into the ending shot from the last trailer, with Indy using his whip to try and beat the guys with guns. The theme music kicks in (which will always trigger some nostalgia for the original films), there is a quick shot of the parade chase again – which, in the context of the trailer, looks off – and then a new shot of Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s character Helena Shaw.
This latest look is a tease of an exciting action-set piece aboard a German plane, where Shaw was sent to rescue Indy, but while she hangs out of a moving plane it looks like she’s the one that needs saving. A wider shot of the plane shows that it’s been badly damaged and is on fire, but there doesn’t appear to be anyone chasing them, which begs the question of what happened.
While this trailer answers one of the questions fans had been having about the villains, it manages to raise a lot more, which is what a good spot does. There are some impressive looking areas and some that aren’t so, but it creates intrigue and hype.
Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will arrive in cinemas on June 30, 2023.
