Indiana Jones 5

As Disney announced that Steven Spielberg would be returning to direct Harrison Ford in a new Indiana Jones movie, it seems like the skeptical and cynical comments took over my social media feed. Does no one want an Indiana Jones 5? Why couldn’t a fifth installment of the series actually be good? I’m very hopeful about a new Indiana Jones film, and here’s why.

Ready Player One Cast

A few weeks ago when Ready Player One got bumped to 2018, to avoid the unstoppable Star Wars Episode VIII, Angie noted director Steven Spielberg and all involved were still searching for a male lead.

Steven Spielberg Discusses Oscars

This year’s Academy Awards nominations ignited a bit of a firestorm. All 20 acting nominees are white, which is odd considering the amount of powerful performances that were overlooked. A major criticism comes from the fact that most of the voters at the Oscars are older white males. To the Academy’s credit, they’re working on the problem, which director Steven Spielberg has weighed in on.

Below Spielberg discusses the Oscars and more.

Steven Spielberg VR

Virtual reality is about to take off in a big way. Just recently we learned that Disney and Lucasfilm are developing new Star Wars stories, directed and written by big name filmmakers and screenwriters, for virtual reality, to connect with the upcoming films. Plus, VR showcases such as The Martian VR Experience from Ridley Scott have been getting quite the buzz and we’re a bit bummed we couldn’t check it out while it was at Sundance last month. Now another heavy-hitting filmmaker looks to be making the journey to VR as well.

Steven Spielberg previously signed on to be an advisor to Virtual Reality Company (VRC), and now he’s reportedly working with them on a project that is solely for VR. Find out more about the Steven Spielberg VR collaboration below. Read More »

the BFG poster

Only fools don’t eagerly anticipate Steven Spielberg movies and only a total cynic wouldn’t want to see one of the greatest filmmakers of all time adapt the work of the great Roald Dahl. So while it’s currently flying a bit under the radar, you should probably start looking forward to the arrival of The BFG, Spielberg’s first collaboration with Disney and his first live action family adventure movie since 1991’s Hook.

A new poster for The BFG has arrived and it’s lovely, teasing colorful imagery, a grand sense of scale, and name-dropping a Spielberg masterpiece that has more than once connection to this new movie.

Ben Mendelsohn in Slow West

We have no reason to believe Ben Mendelsohn is anything but lovely in real life, but “menacing” is definitely his default mode in the movies. And Steven Spielberg will not be the one to change that. Spielberg is reportedly eyeing Mendelsohn for his ’80s nostalgia-fest Ready Player One, in which Mendelsohn would play (of course) the villain. If a deal closes, he’ll be the second actor cast after Olivia Cooke, who plays the female lead. More about the Ready Player One Ben Mendelsohn casting after the jump.  Read More »

Back in 2013, Steven Spielberg‘s adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson‘s “Robopocalypse” was indefinitely postponed by DreamWorks and the director. Due to script and budget issues, Spielberg didn’t feel the project was ready to go. We haven’t heard much about the project’s status since then, but now screenwriter Drew Goddard looks back on the experience, and offers up a small glimmer of hope that it could still happen.

Read his positive thoughts on the project after the jump.

Star Wars Jurassic World Box Office

As expected, Star Wars: The Force Awakens obliterated box office records this weekend — including the one set by Jurassic World earlier this year for the biggest opening weekend of all time. But apparently there are no hard feelings on Jurassic World‘s side. Just as the Marvel team congratulated Jurassic World on a job well done when it took over The Avengers‘ record, the Jurassic World gang is gamely toasting Star Wars‘ stellar performance.  Read More »
