Indiana Jones 5: How Will It Perform In Its Opening Weekend?

MOVIE NEWS – Worldwide revenue forecasts for Indiana Jones 5 paint a more complete picture of the financial outlook for the opening weekend.

 

 

The worldwide box office projections for Indiana Jones 5 (aka Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny) tell us a lot about how well Indy’s final adventure will do when it arrives in cinemas. This film will be Harrison Ford’s last outing as the titular adventurer who hunts for the mythical Ancient Heroes’ reel alongside his goddaughter Helena Shaw (Phoebe Waller-Bridge). The film is the most expensive Indiana Jones movie ever made. The estimated budget is around $295 million…

According to Deadline, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will earn $140 million at the worldwide box office when it opens this weekend.

That includes the domestic opening weekend, which is projected to gross $65 million. Based on this, it looks like many people will be heading to the cinemas to see Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. But the projected box office receipts are only a fraction of the enormous budget.

The box office projections for the US release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny promise a lower opening than 2008’s Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The latter earned $100 million domestically in its opening weekend. The film ended up being a blockbuster, grossing $790.7 million worldwide against a budget of $185 million. This is despite criticism from fans of the franchise. Many considered it to be the worst Indiana Jones film.

Despite mixed reviews at the Cannes Film Festival in May, Indiana Jones 5 could still be an exciting and satisfying conclusion to the franchise. However, the film’s status as the most expensive Indy movie means that it will have to earn an incredible amount of money at the box office.

With marketing costs and the theatres’ share of the box office, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny would have to gross up to $800 million worldwide just to break even!

A $140 million opening weekend worldwide would be a good sign for previous films in the franchise. However, the box office success of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny may not bode well. As this film will be Indy’s last adventure, audiences need not worry that the franchise will end prematurely if it does not perform well. It is also too early to say how much the film will earn overall. Especially if audiences will ultimately enjoy the movie. After all, that is the most important thing.
