The new Indiana Jones is being (partly)filmed in Cefalu. 

The plot is a guarded secret so one can only hope…

The original movie has to be the only Hollywood blockbuster to feature ritual magic in it (near the end of the movie).   Also, during  the cafe scene Indie and archeologist  Dr. René Belloq meet again in Egypt (for the first time since the opening scene near the Aztec temple) and Belloq describes how with a nudge he can bring Jones away from the light and into the darkness.  It's an amazing movie and has everything in it.  The one they did with Connery was one of the worst movies I've seen though.

I think you may be correct there.  There are other, non-Hollywood movies I can think of. The Devil Rides Out, The Attic Expeditions, and A Dark Song all come to mind, but that could be the only blockbuster that does.

I think the Rowan Atkinson character in Scooby Doo did some sort of Enochianesque chanting and there are many silly horror movies that have quasi 'Satanic' rites and/or Isisian invocation/evocation e.g. King Kong (how about that for invocation/evocation?)   There's been some big movies that show explicit witchcraft practices though.

True, plenty of pseudo-occult stuff, I was just thinking of movies that include something with a basis in real ritual magic practices. The exorcism and the magick circle in The Devil Rides Out, the Abramelin in A Dark Song, the rituals in the flashbacks and what may have been an attempt to become the Rebis in The Attic Expeditions, etc. There was also that movie I mentioned to Shiva recently that included an alien reincarnation of Crowley who performed a partial Bornless ritual in one scene. 

 

You make a fun point about King Kong as invocation/evocation.

Paganism was kind of trendy in movies for a while.

I think that was a Sorcereristic evocation without prior invocation of some deity that can control mega-rillas. I remember the evocation (to visible appearance and mayhem), but the invoking part escapes me.

Note: Mickey Mouse pulled the same stunt in The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Evocation without prior invocation. Mayhem. Why won't these people learn?

The exorcism and the magick circle in The Devil Rides Out,

Hilarious movie that.  Note how the demon evoked in that scene is a smiling African man.  Seemed to be all a bit British and colonial.

I remember seeing that scene for the first time being confused and a bit annoyed at that choice. 

I remember reading somewhere that the exorcism that Christopher Lee used in that scene was one that he'd researched himself and had added to the script to replace what was originally in it, but I don't know if that's actually true. 

The bacchanalian ritual was surprisingly tame too. It felt more like interpretive dance than a Satanic ritual.

Seemed to be all a bit British and colonial. 

 

Well, Dennis Wheatley himself was British and colonial, so I guess it fit.

The new Indy film has also been filming in the UK for awhile too.  I heard ol' Harrison hurt himself doing stunts.  He is a bit old for that. 

I wonder if we will get more ritualising Nazis .   If I had to hazard a guess filming at Cefalu has nothing to do with Crowley.  We shall see....

When will Indiana Jones 5 take place?

Possibly in the 1960s, based on a tweet Mangold sent out in January 2021: “I’m mentally living in 60’s NYC right now cause that’s where all the movies I’m working on take place.”
