Indy 5: John Williams shares score from the next Indiana Jones film

It’s a common joke at concerts that artists only want to play the new stuff. But when that artist is John Williams, that alone is worth the price of admission. The legendary composer John Williams shared a piece of music from his upcoming score for Indiana Jones 5 at a recent concert at the Hollywood Bowl. Several videos were uploaded online; one can be seen at the end of the article.

The piece of music is titled “Helena’s Theme”, named after the character Helena, played by Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Flea bag). Williams said of the character, “She’s an adventurer and she’s also a femme fatale…She has a kind of lyrical music like an old movie star.” He insinuated that the presentation was six months early.

John Williams, who is 90 years old, has previously proposed he would withdraw after Indiana Jones 5say “At the moment I’m working on ‘Indiana Jones 5’, which Harrison Ford – who is quite a bit younger than me – I think has announced will be his last film. So I thought: If Harrison can do it, maybe I can too .

But what we’ve come to learn is that when John Williams says he’s retiring, he’s actually just moved on from film work, despite an interest in scoring a James Bond movie. John Williams can next be heard on the big screen for – you guessed it – Steven Spielberg’s semi-autobiographical The Fabelman family.

Indiana Jones 5 (official title forthcoming) is directed by James Mangold (Ford v. Ferrari, Logan).

John Williams earned Oscar nominations for the first original Indiana Jones trilogy. He was passed over for Crystal Skull Kingdom. One wonders if he will be recognized once again for Indy 5.

What do you think of John Williams’ “Helena’s Theme” from Indiana Jones 5? Do you think Williams will receive another Oscar nomination?
