The performance of the fifth installment of the Indiana Jones series, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, has been highly disappointing at the box office. The movie features Harrison Ford reprising his role as the renowned archaeologist for a final expedition despite being a septuagenarian. However, despite a range of critical opinions, the movie has been facing significant challenges in finding its audience and making an impact at cinemas following its premiere at the close of June. A recent report by Variety has also shed light on the staggering financial losses the film is projected to incur.

What this means is that Disney has not been able to recoup the production costs, and it stands at risk of losing nearly $100 million during its theatrical release.

Given the fact that Raiders of the Lost Ark came out over four decades ago, younger viewers lack the connection to both Indy and Ford that older generations possess.

Another setback for the movie could be that the fourth installment, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, which was released in 2008, was not well received by the audience.
