Information coming out of the Cannes Film Festival suggests that Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be longer than producer Kathleen Kennedy previously suggested.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny hits screens this June. The first Indy movie to be directed by James Mangold – taking over from Steve Spielberg – the film stars Harrison Ford, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Mads Mikkelsen, Boyd Holbrook, and Antonio Banderas.

Dexerto watched action-packed footage from the film at Star Wars Celebration over the weekend, while we also learned more about the plot, all of which you can read here.

We also thought we pretty much knew the film’s runtime, thanks to an interview with Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy. But it seems she was underselling the film’s length.

How long is the Indiana Jones 5 runtime?

According to the Cannes Festival Film Guide, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny clocks in at 154 minutes.

That longer than Kathleen Kennedy claimed at Star Wars Celebration, where she said that Indiana Jones 5 runtime is “around 2 hours 22/23 minutes.” Which is 142/143 minutes.

“Runtimes seem to be a hot topic,” Kennedy told Collider at the time. “I will say that the early movies are shorter. They were under 2 [hours] 15 [minutes]. We talked about that quite a bit so now I see why maybe they’re interested in this, but as you know with runtime, it’s all about how you feel, right? So if you’re sitting in a movie and it feels long, you’re like ‘Uuuh.'”

Later in the interview, Kennedy claimed “we’re not dealing with a long movie,” before adding: “The reason this is interesting is because long-form storytelling is becoming something that we like in the streaming space. So I think it might be some kind of carry-over from that.”

Kennedy then ends the interview by name-checking David Lean and Stanley Kubrick – both of whom made long movies – and stating that “if it’s good and it’s high quality, then bring it on.”
