Indiana Jones pulls in the crowds at Cannes

he A-list stars were out in force at the Cannes premiere of the fourth Indiana Jones film, with director Steven Spielberg hinting there could yet be a fifth movie in the franchise.

Harrison Ford, reprising his role as the adventurous archeologist Dr Jones, appeared on the red carpet with his co-stars Cate Blanchett, Ray Winstone and Shia LeBoeuf.

Mr Spielberg said public demand had led to the return of the character, adding that this may not be the last that audiences see of the explorer.

Speaking to the BBC, he said: "If you want more of them, we'll have our ear to the ground to hear what happens and will decide where we go from here."

It is almost 20 years since Ford appeared in the last Indy movie, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which has led to criticism from some quarters that he is too old for the role

The movie opens here in the UK on Thursday May 22nd.
