The 1981 film is regarded as one of the most iconic movies to come out during the ‘80s. Raiders of the Lost Ark was the first of what would be a massive Indiana Jones film franchise. The movie featured an impressive cast led by multi-award-winning actor Harrison Ford. Besides a line-up of fantastic actors, the creative team behind the movie includes industry giants, such as award-winning director Steven Spielberg, screenplay writer Lawrence Kasdan, producer Frank Marshall, and Grammy Award-winning film music composer John Williams. Let’s not forget that this story was conceptualized and written by Star Wars creators George Lucas and Philip Kauffman.
With a budget of 20 million dollars, the film grossed over 389 million dollars, becoming the highest-grossing film of 1981. The film’s impact on popular culture resulted in the United States Library of Congress preserving the film in the National Film Registry. After the success of Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Indiana Jones franchise followed up with Temple of Doom, Last Crusade, Kingdom of Crystal Skull, and the latest installment, Dial of Destiny.
Apart from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark, Film on the Rocks will also feature iconic films on other dates.
