    Veteran Hollywood film director Steven Spielberg says the next star of one of his most iconic characters, Indiana Jones, should be played by a woman. Speaking to The Sun as his latest film Ready Player One hits the cinemas, Spielberg said that although it would risk anger from longtime fans of the Indiana Jones franchise, it is time the explorer took on ďa different form.Ē ďWeíd have to change the name from Jones to Joan,Ē he said. ďAnd there would be nothing wrong with that.Ē Ford, 75, first played Indiana Jones in 1981ís Raiders of the Lost Ark and reprised...

    Last week, actress and star of NBCís The Black List Megan Boone tweeted that her character on the popular crime drama would ďnever carry an assault rifle again.Ē The tweet ó which was in response to the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, that saw Nikolas Cruz kill 17 people with a legally purchased AR-15 rifle ó posed a glaring question. Will other pro-gun control Hollywood actors and directors whoíve used firearms in films for years pledge to lay down their guns in future films? Itís a question that could be asked of the likes of...

    Of the making of Washington movies, there is no end. Kohelet said this in Ecclesiastes, I think. Or maybe it was Gene Shalit on the Today Show. Itís a truism in any case. Steven Spielbergís latest entry in the genre, The Post, is for many Washingtonians the most powerful example in the long line. When the movie opened here in late December, there were reports of audiences cheering lustily and even dissolving in tears at the movieís end, as if they were watching a speech by President Obama. The local paper ran news articles about it, along with numberless feature...

Following the tragic deadly school shooting in Parkland, Fla. Winfrey announced that she would be following George and Amal Clooney, Jeffrey and Marilyn Katzenberg and Steven Spielberg and Kate Capshaw and making a $500,000 donation to support the March for Our Lives demonstration in which students ďwill take to the streets of Washington, D.C. to demand that their lives and safety become a priorityĒ and that...

    Hot off directing back to back pictures in the Oscar contender The Post and the upcoming Ready Player One, Steven Spielberg is now figuring out his next two directorial vehicles. There are several percolating, but sources say he is eyeing Indiana Jones, and then would either precede or follow quickly with another pic. Iím hearing that one might be his dream project, a new version of West Side Story. Spielbergís camp had no comment on his plans. Deadline revealed back in 2015 that Spielberg had his eye on his Jurassic World star Chris Pratt to be a central part of...
  • Natalie Portmanís All-Male Directors Category Remark Prompts Quick Reaction

    Natalie Portman got in a not-so-subtle jab at the lack of female representation in the Best Director category last night at the Golden Globes, and social media was quick to react. While presenting the nominees alongside filmmaker Ron Howard, Portman noted, quite pointedly, that all of the nominees were men. ďHere are the all-male nominees,Ē she said as the names of Christopher Nolan (Dunkirk), Martin McDonagh (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Steven Spielberg (The Post), Ridley Scott (All the Money in the World) and the eventual winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water). She did not mention it but...

    Tom Hanks plays famed newspaper editor Ben Bradlee in Steven Spielberg's upcoming drama The Post. Here, the two-time Oscar winner discusses the man he plays (and also knew); the issues the film raises; and why he would refuse to go to the White House for a screening of his movie. You knew Ben Bradlee? He said: "You don't get it. We're covering the stories that are changing the world... And then, of course, the Nixon administration, the Justice Department, says: "If you print these papers, you're going to be traitors," which complicated absolutely everything, because it happened in the week...

    ‚ÄėThe Post,‚ÄĚ the new movie starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, is three things: a film about the Pentagon Papers, classified documents about the Vietnam War that were leaked to the media in 1971, a film about the press and Donald Trump, and, finally, an indictment¬†about Harvey Weinstein and sexism in Hollywood. According to Streep, who is interviewed on December 14 in the Washington Post, the film is mostly about sexism. Streep says that the new film came from a place of ‚Äúgrievance‚ÄĚ about sexism.¬† ‚ÄúPeople were really scared and demoralized [after Trump was elected],‚ÄĚ Streep told the Post. But...

    There's a reason why Steven Spielberg is still the undisputed King of Hollywood. Over the course of a nearly five-decade-long career, he has perfected and/or inaugurated any number of cinematic movements and innovations. Coming of age as one of the "movie brats" Ė the generation of filmmakers who transformed American cinema in the Sixties and Seventies Ė Spielberg also helped kick off Hollywood's blockbuster culture with Jaws in 1975 (and then sent that culture into overdrive with the one-two punch of Raiders of the Lost Ark and E.T. the Extra Terrestrial in 1981 and 1982). The success of such movies...

So with the release of his latest movie, The BFG, we bring you Steven Spielberg's directing evolution. We're gonna need a bigger boat. *****Also big oops. Close Encounters of the Third Kind is 1977 and Minority Report is 2002. We knew this from our research, but somehow in the edit we messed it up. Sorry!

    Even Lonesome Rhodes, I mean director Steven Spielberg, couldn't make Hillary Clinton's image more likeable. †According to a New York Post excerpt of Edward Klein's book, "Unlikeable," Spielberg acting as Hillary's "consigli di immagine," tried but failed in this difficult endeavor. When you see the video clip below of Lonesome Rhodes in the movie "A Face In the Crowd"†giving similar advice to make Senator Worthington Fuller more likeable†you will see why I used Italian terminology for "image adviser." But first let us read of Spielberg acting as Lonesome Rhodes giving advice to his Senator Fuller, Hillary Clinton:

    It might be safe to go in the water now. Monday marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Jaws, director Steven Spielbergís tale of a great white shark terrorizing a picturesque seaside town. Itís a bona fide classic, deserving of all the praise it gets. But itís also something of a relic, a throwback to a simpler time in moviemaking when we were less cynical and more easily frightened. For all the monster movie remakes being trotted out this decade, itís actually not surprising we havenít seen Jaws sequel since 1987ís Jaws: The Revenge (and not just because that...
