Indiana Jones 5 Harrison Ford Look Rough pics – director James Mangold leaves – –


Before we get into this article, there are some things that need to be prefaced. First, we hope Indiana Jones 5 will be a awesome movie. James Mangold has made huge movies in the past and Harrison Ford is a superstar. The character of Indiana Jones is perhaps the greatest film icon in the history of American cinema. Additionally, we’ve been very right in the past about the Indiana Jones 5 leaks, detailing that the movie was almost canceled due to the pandemic, that Indiana Jones would feature CGI aging flashbacks, and more. film when it was appropriate. Having said that, let’s get started …

Leaked footage from the first week of filming of Indiana Jones 5 has circulated on Twitter for the past twenty-four hours. These are our first photos of Harrison Ford playing the latest Indiana Jones movie with him as the star (and possibly the last Indiana Jones of all time). These disclosed images can be described as “relevant”. Here they are, then we’ll discuss:

Okay, so here are some of the things of concern:

First, it’s obvious that Harrison Ford looks a lot like a seventy-eight year old man. And that’s how it should be … he is seventy-eight years old. But, you know, it’s hard to watch a superhero age. It’s just. We’re not trying to be rude or mean about it. It’s like watching Michael Jordan in the Wizards – people love Michael Jordan, so it’s hard to watch the greatest of all time go away. The same is true for Indy. People love this character and people love Harrison Ford. So, seeing him grow old is a reminder of mortality, and growing old, growing old, it can be boring.

While you might have hoped Harrison Ford would defy the age, he didn’t. One way for a director to cover this up a bit is to tidy up other parts of the character. But Indy looks disheveled, wrinkled, haggard. Guess it’s a creative choice, but it’s hard to see the sagging chest of the older Ford person coming out of a half-unbuttoned shirt that also hasn’t tucked in in places. Regardless of the art direction, it’s a solid reminder that this isn’t 80s Indy, though it never could have been.

Fear is what we talked about on Pirates and Princesses. It took a miracle to get here, and even another delay of several months could have made this film impossible. But honestly, maybe we’ve already passed the stage where it could have been done. Harrison Ford of The Force Awakens could have pulled it off. Harrison Ford from The Rise of Skywalker could have done it. It does not bring this author any joy to say, it’s hard, because this film force have just lasted too long.

Filmmakers clearly know they have a problem. Ford is marked with CGI dots on his face and jacket, clearly indicating that they will use CGI “makeup” to reduce his age. We last saw this effect used for an entire movie with Pee Wee’s Big Holiday. It worked pretty well there, so maybe they can do it with Indiana Jones 5?

The biggest problem is that we are hearing reports of filming that Harrison Ford is not content with just see older he moves in an older way. Again, we’re not trying to take it out on Harrison Ford – Harrison Ford is impressive. If we could snap our fingers and turn the clock, we love to have it as at its peak as it ever was. But it’s hard to see how he’s going to pull off this movie if his movements are those of a geriatric. It’s like watching a grandparent lose his footing; it’s not fun, and we’re not kidding. Aging awaits all of us who are fortunate enough to live “longer” lives.

You can imagine that not all the fans took care to point out that they are concerned about a movie franchise they love while simultaneously honoring the man who played Dr. Jones. But that’s where this story is full weird fashion. Because once these images leaked, the director of the film took leave of his prolific Twitter account mainly used for hyper-partisanship to attack the critics of the photos (besides, why is it always that these Hollywood elites are hyper- partisan against half their country but never say a against on actual slavery, forced labor and genocide outside China?).

What followed is a rather indefensible tirade by James Mangold attacking people who care about Indiana Jones. I don’t care if “fans” criticize your friends, attack your filming decisions, etc., we’ve already seen how it goes with Rian Johnson. The best defense would be to make a great movie, not to spend hours working.

Here are James Mangold’s tweets so far:

You can find James Mangold’s Twitter account to see he’s been doing this all day and still is there. And I understand… he defends his art which he is currently working on, which is probably a dream come true. I don’t know if this is the way to defend it. Maybe it is (but this is not the case). We’ll know based on how it goes with public relations. It worries me that Mr. Mangold spends a lot of time on Twitter retweeting crass political positions that would alienate huge demographics. I’m personally ready to see a healing in this world, I’ll just tell you.

So that’s where the story takes place at 8:00 PM EST Sunday. We will keep you posted if it evolves in other directions. As always, feel free to comment below and we’ll almost certainly read your thoughts; Remember though, the only thing that gets us missing you is if you’re vulgar or rude. Best regards, all!
