Steven Spielberg Sent Champagne and Caviar to Director Oscar Nominees

Steven Spielberg Sent Champagne and Caviar to Director Oscar Nominees
Steven Spielberg's The Post scored two Oscar nominations Jan. 23, including noms for best picture and best actress for Meryl Streep. Spielberg, however, was not among those named for best director, even though he'd been pegged as a favorite to receive what would have been his seventh nom in the category. (He has won twice: in 1999 for Saving Private Ryan and in 1994 for Schindler's List.)

Still, the veteran filmmaker did not spend any time sulking, instead ensuring that the five nominees who did make the cut — Guillermo del Toro, Jordan Peele, Greta Gerwig, Christopher Nolan and Paul...

Steven Spielberg to shoot Indiana Jones 5 in 2019

Steven Spielberg to shoot Indiana Jones 5 in 2019
Despite initial reports that Steven Spielberg would make his West Side Story remake the next film on his schedule, The Hollywood Reporter is suggesting the musical will remain on the back-burner whilst the director finds the right cast, pushing the filming of Indiana Jones 5 to the top of the list.

The report claims that Spielberg will ask Harrison Ford to don the Fedora in 2019, with a proposed 2020 release date.

There shouldn’t be any concern with such project juggling from Spielberg. Anyone who can film Jurassic Park and Schindler’s List in the same year (1993), and cram in a five-star awards contender such as The Post during his Ready Player One downtime, should be able to create a film to banish memories of Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, and reinvent a classic musical for a new generation.

Are you happy with Spielberg’s choices? A remake and fourth sequel to a decades old franchise,

Ready Player One Reveals All-New Footage in New Video Sneak Peek

Warner Bros. released a new sneak peek at Ready Player One, which explores the cinematic legacy of director Steven Spielberg. Author Ernest Cline, who wrote the novel that the movie adaptation is based on.

The film is set in 2045, with the world on the brink of chaos and collapse. But the people have found salvation in the Oasis, an expansive virtual reality universe created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance).

Indiana Jones 5 and West Side Story Are Next for Spielberg

Indiana Jones 5 and West Side Story Are Next for Spielberg
Indiana Jones 5 is likely next for director Steven Spielberg. The legendary director is 71-years-old and isn't showing any signs of slowing down. This year, he put his Oscar contender The Post together very quickly and he's also got Ready Player One, which represents a return to blockbuster filmmaking for Spielberg, hitting theaters in March. Now, as those projects wind down, he's lining up his next job and, reportedly, there's a very good chance it will be Indiana Jones 5 which, surprisingly, could be followed up be a remake of West Side Story.

Starting with Indiana Jones 5, it was announced some time ago that Steven Spielberg was going to return to the director's chair for the new installment, with Harrison Ford returning to star once more as the iconic action hero. Disney has already dated the movie for July 20, 2020, which was pushed back from its original July 19, 2019, date. That being the case,

Steven Spielberg got some unexpected news in regards to his latest Oscar hopeful. His new movie The Post, starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, has just been banned in Lebanon, a source close to the project has revealed.

Ryan Lambie Jan 19, 2018

For 10 years, Liam Neeson's been throwing punches and shooting guns. We take a look back at his decade of action thrillers...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Liam Neeson's more recent thrillers. If there's an entry you haven't seen, we'd advise skipping to the next one - apart from The Commuter, which we won't spoil because it isn't out yet.

For some, he's an Oscar nominee, thanks to his superb performance in Schindler's List. To others, he's the larger-than-life presence in such blockbusters as The Phantom Menace, Batman Begins and Clash Of The Titans.

Since 2008, though, Liam Neeson's taken an unexpected turn into action-thriller territory; now often seen wearing a leather jacket, a gun in his fist and his knuckles bloodied, Neeson's found a new audience as a hard-hitting macho man.

'The Commuter': Film Review
Throughout his late renaissance as an action hero, Liam Neeson has battled wolves (The Grey), evil Albanians (Taken), evil Turks (Taken 2), flight turbulence (Non-Stop), an unwanted TV show adaptation (The A-Team), an unwanted board game adaptation (Battleship), more evil Albanians (Run All Night), evil Germans (Unknown) and even evil Nazis, if you want to go all the way back to Schindler's List.

But in The Commuter, which marks the 65-year-old star’s fourth collaboration with Spanish director and Hitchcock enthusiast Jaume Collet-Serra, he may be facing his greatest challenge yet: trying to take the Metro-North Railroad home from New York...

When Steven Spielberg directed three films back to back

Paul Bullock Jan 3, 2018

It's just over 20 years since Steven Spielberg directed three film in a 14-month period. We take a look back...

How do you follow up the defining year of your career? This is the conundrum Steven Spielberg faced when he returned from hiatus and looked to get back behind the camera in 1997. Four years earlier, he'd experienced the kind of success most can only dream of, hitting box office gold with Jurassic Park and - finally - finding the critical adulation he'd spent years seeking with Schindler's List.
