The title of the new Indiana Jones film has been revealed with the release of the trailer for the movie starring Harrison Ford as the adventurous archaeologist.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, which will be released next June and was previous known as Indiana Jones 5, comes more than 40 years after Ford first played the title role in Raiders of the Lost Ark in 1981.

The trailer shows multiple action sequences, including 80-year-old Ford riding a horse through New York and on to the subway tracks.

The horseback chase was filmed in Glasgow where a body double for Ford was seen riding through a parade scene last year.

Other scenes in the trailer show a younger, de-aged version of the fictional archaeologist as well as high-speed car chases and multiple shootouts.

In the trailer, Jones’s friend Sallah, played by Welsh actor John Rhys-Davies reprising his role from earlier films in the franchise, said: “I miss the sea. I miss waking up every morning wondering what wonderful adventure the new day will bring to us.”

Jones responds: “Those days have come and gone.”

Other echoes of earlier films include the return of the character’s bullwhip and fedora, as well as scenes of hidden trap-doors springing open and a huge boulder rolling away.

The cast also includes Mads Mikkelsen and Antonio Banderas, while Britain’s Phoebe Waller-Bridge plays Jones’s goddaughter, Helena.

The latest film also features a score by composer John Williams and will be released on 30 June 2023.

It follows earlier sequels Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade (1989) and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008).
