Disney’s Ritual Humiliation of Indiana Jones Flops Badly

It’s good to see this movie fail miserably.

Even if people won’t stand against the sickness of this system, at least they won’t make a point to stand with it.


Harrison Ford brought the legendary titular character Indiana Jones back to the big screen this weekend with “Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny,” but its opening box office showing was lower than advance estimates.

The movie grossed $60 million in the United States and $70 million internationally, bringing the fifth and final installment of the storied franchise’s global box office to $130 million on its 3-day opening.

“Dial of Destiny” reportedly cost nearly $300 million to make, which makes the open weekend box office numbers underwhelming and a tall hurdle for the movie to clear in order to profit.

Remember when Indiana Jones was racist? Those were good times.

The movie did open at number one despite mediocre reviews for Indy’s final chapter, and is projected to earn $82 million in its 5-day opening through the July 4 holiday weekend.

The opening is one of several disappointing showings for big-budget movies at the box office this summer, with Warner Bros.’ “The Flash” and Pixar’s animated “Elemental” both falling well short of expectations. (Warner Bros., like CNN, is a unit of Warner Bros. Discovery.)

Mission: Impossible, which is one of the last apolitical series left, is likely to crush this “Old Man Jones” tripe.

Harrison Ford looks depressed

Harrison Ford is actually half-Jewish. He’s never come across as particularly Jewish, and he doesn’t look Jewish. I can believe he just did this for money and doesn’t feel particularly good about it.

It’s unclear how Disney is expecting to continue to survive while releasing this sort of tripe.
