The films of Steven Spielberg feel inseparable from the music of John Williams. But for some cinephiles, Williams represents Spielberg’s most manipulative and sentimental instincts. Well, here’s your chance to see one of the most iconic moments in the two artists career without the famous score that makes the scene…
We still know very little about how Steven Spielberg is adapting Ernie Cline’s Ready Player One. We know the cast and that it’s coming out March 30, 2018, but that’s about it. However, now we know T.J. Miller is playing a role invented for the film, and that the character is a huge Star Wars fanatic.
We all knew Star Wars: Episode IX would be coming out in 2019, but everyone assumed it would be Christmas, following in the steps of the previous two films in the trilogy. Turns out that will not be the case. Oh, and the fifth Indiana Jones movie just got a new date, too. As well as Frozen 2. And the live-action Lion…
The ending of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park is perfect: The tension, the staging, and the turn of the Tyrannosaurus Rex from villain to hero, complete with the falling banner. It’s so good it seems impossible it could have been handled differently—but history tells us it originally was.
Say the word “Amblin” to film fans and instantly they will get a picture in their heads. It’s a picture from the 1980s, of kids, fantasy, wonder, aliens, and more—the tone Stranger Things recently aimed to capture. Now take that feeling and put it in a single room. That’s what you get at Amblin 35.
Cell phones have done many things to our lives, but one that gets overlooked is erasing the memory of a long distance phone call. Twenty years ago, receiving or making a long distance call was a big deal. And taking that into account, one company has figured out how much it would have cost E.T. to phone home.
It’s not a secret that Stanley Kubrick first developed A.I. Artificial Intelligence and was once slated to direct the film before he passed away. Or that Kubrick put Steven Spielberg on the project, and that Kubrick and Spielberg were good friends. So it really shouldn’t be a surprise that Kubrick’s imprint is all…
Some movie scenes are unforgettable, and Steven Spielberg’s reenactment of the Normandy Landing is one of them. Every shot feels chaotic, with indiscriminate bloodshed consistent with this brutal event. But as Nerdwriter1 explains in the video below, Spielberg’s filmmaking choices are anything but random.
It seems like every frame of Steven Spielberg’s film adaptation of Ready Player One is going to be stuffed full of things to pay attention to.
In 1991, Steven Spielberg told us what happened when Peter Pan grew up. The film, Hook, was a big hit and garnered a huge legion of fans who saw it as kids. It hasn’t aged too well, to be honest, but these photos will make you either insanely nostalgic or incredibly depressed.
Netflix’s new 80s sci-fi tribute series Stranger Things is excellent. It’s got the love and adulation of critics and fans alike, including “The Flippist” artist Ben Zurawski. In fact, after binge-watching all eight episodes of the Netflix show last week, Zurawski created a cute flipbook all about the young heroes.
Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment is on a tear of acquiring new content. They just released The BFG, picked up the YA series The Gates and now they’ve acquired the buzzed-about spec script, The Fall, which sounds like The Road meets War of the Worlds.
Critical reaction to Steven Spielberg’s traditional take on the Roald Dahl classic The BFG has been positive, if mostly ambivalent. The same, sadly, can’t be said for its reception at the box office, where it is setting the world on fire with all the force of the dampest squib.
The BFG is Steven Spielberg’s first Disney movie and it’s based on a famous book by Roald Dahl, one of the world’s most notable authors. Those things all add up to some pretty daunting expectations. The film, which opens Friday, meets those expectations, but doesn’t surpass them, leaving a suitably entertaining and…
When the name “Amblin” is in front of a movie, it means something special. It means a level of entertainment endorsed by the people behind E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, and Back to the Future. And the company has just begun developing their next potential franchise.
If anyone knows what’s going on with the universes of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, and Lucasfilm, it’s the CEO of all of Disney, Bob Iger. In a new interview, Iger said he expects to make more Indiana Jones movies after part 5... but that may or may not include Harrison Ford.
Harrison Ford’s return to Star Wars actually becoming his prompt exit from Star Wars might have fans of Indiana Jones worried that the same fate will befall another beloved Ford hero when the actor returns for Indiana Jones 5. Not so, according to director Steven Spielberg. Or at least not so... for now.
Kids on BMX bikes cruising misty suburban streets at night, Hazmat suit-clad figures with flashlights, a pigtailed blonde moppet, a wide-eyed boy, a desperate mother ... all that appears to be missing from Netflix’s new series Stranger Things is a lovable, candy-obsessed alien, otherwise it’d be E.T.
There’s a moment when every viral video catches fire. Maybe it gets shared by the right people on social media, or played on TV, or something. For the shot-by-shot Raiders of the Lost Ark fan film, it was playing a film festival in Austin, Texas.
When three young filmmakers decided to remake Raiders of the Lost Ark shot for shot, they had no idea where it would take them. Now, a documentary about the experience is coming out, and a new trailer has been cut that feels very familiar.
