    Chasing Daniel Day-Lewis: Spielberg Asked Him To Play 'Lincoln' Seven Years Ago & The Actor Initially Turned Him Down

    While younger actors (like Jessica Chastain and Michael Fassbender for example) crowd up their schedules with work early on in their career to gain exposure and experience, it'll be interesting to see if any follow the eventual path taken by Daniel Day-Lewis.

    The antagonist, in Steven Spielberg’s films, has many faces. It can be government scientists involved in seemingly shady plots. It can be unstoppable behemoths such as the shark in Jaws or the tanker truck in Duel. Warped ideologies, as in Schindler’s List. Or the tangled and self-defeating all...

    Review: 'The Adventures of Tintin' Is All Hollow Spectacle & No Joy

    Tintin is a terrible journalist.

    "War Horse": Is It Steven Spielberg Or Monty Python?

    PETER TONGUETTE: Director Steven Spielberg and editor Michael Kahn: a life long partnership

    I was the sort of kid who paid attention to movie credits, even if I didn’t comprehend them, so from an early age I was familiar with the name of Michael Kahn. There it was, appearing again and again at the start of some of my favorite movies as a child: Close "Encounters of the Third Kind," "Raider...
