The fifth and final instalment of the Indiana Jones franchise, that filmed in the North East in 2021, is in now in cinemas.

The production took over Bamburgh Castle in the summer of 2021 to shoot the opening sequence of the film.

The North East Screen Film Office support this production when they filmed in Bamburgh by helping them source crew, locations and permissions from the relevant local authorities.

When speaking to BBC Radio Newcastle, Locations Director Duncan Broadfoot said, “When we brought our director [to Northumberland], he immediately knew that Bamburgh was the right choice.

“We were there for two weeks dressing the castle and it looked really fantastic when we came to film.

Duncan continued: “We had two key hooks that we were looking for that would tie us into a specific location.

“One was a castle – we needed a castle that had a nice entrance, grand court yard and grand interior space, and we found that in Bamburgh.

“It has such a diverse, rich tapestry of locations up there – we are spoilt for choice really.”

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is in cinemas now.
