While Harrison Ford inevitably claimed the limelight, Gemma Chan ensured she was turning heads in her second premiere in as many days.
The 40-year-old British actress looked stunning in an elegant red Louis Vuitton evening dress as she waved to photographers at the French seaside resort on Thursday evening.

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Fate is set in 1969, following Ford’s Indiana Jones against the backdrop of America’s “space race”.
Jones is said to be “worried” that the US government is enlisting ex-Nazis in its race to beat the Russians to the moon.
Franchise newcomer Phoebe Waller-Bridge joins the sequel as Helena Shaw, Indy’s goddaughter, with Mads Mikkelsen as Jurgen Voller, an ex-Nazi now working for NASA.
Other newcomers include Antonio Banderas as Indy’s friend Renaldo, Thomas Kretschmann as Colonel Weber, Toby Jones as Basil Shaw and Boyd Holbrook as Klaber.
Phoebe portrays Indiana Jones’ goddaughter Helena Shaw in the film, with the filmmakers describing the character as “slippery” and “lovely”.

“It’s a mystery and a wonder,” Phoebe, who also stars opposite Antonio Banderas in the film, told Empire of her character.
“Making the film was everything I could have hoped for, with a chance to work on my own stunts and action sequences,” she added.
“If the script said to jump into the back of a vehicle, I threw myself into the back of a vehicle! »
The next action flick will be released on June 30 and will be Indiana Jones’ final film.
“This is the last movie in the series, and it’s the last time I’ll play the character. I anticipate this will be the last time he appears in a movie,” Harrison recently confirmed in an interview with TotalMovie.
It was reported in November that Disney Plus was in the early stages of developing an Indiana Jones TV series, although Harrison insisted he was not involved either.

“I had had the ambition to make this movie for 10 years, and finally there came a time when we all went down that road,” the actor admitted.
‘It was a joyful moment for me. I think this is a rare situation I find myself in.
‘I was able to deliver amazing films developed by Steven [Spielberg] and George [Lucas] over a period of 40 years, and ending it not with a moan, but with a bang, was my greatest ambition for this excursion.
