Spielberg documentary drops its first trailer

Who doesn’t love Steven Spielberg? The directorial mastro has been at the top of the Hollywood tree for over 40 years ago now and finally we have a documentary to tell his amazing story.

With contributions from, among others, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese, this looks like it’ll be an engrossing look into the history of one of Hollywood’s most enduring filmmakers.

Check out the trailer below:


Terminator 6 will ignore Terminator Genisys, says Arnie

We could have probably guessed, but Terminator 6 (as we’re certain it won’t be called) is going to ignore the events of Terminator Genisys (which didn’t do that well either critically or commercially), so says its star, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Chatting at an event in Birmingham over the weekend, Arnie also confirmed that Linda Hamilton is in training for the new film (happy face), and that Robert Patrick won’t be involved (sad face).

So, with Terminator Genisys being ignored (ditto Terminator 3, we’re presuming, since Sarah Connor was already dead in that film) the hint is the next movie is going to be a direct follow-up to Terminator 2. Watch this space.


Bond 25: Daniel Craig wants Denis Villeneuve to direct

According to Baz Bamigboye in The Daily Mail, the current James Bond has a favoured director for the currently-in-pre-production 25th James Bond film – Blade Runner 2049 helmer Denis Villeneuve.

Now normally an actor expressing a preference for a director wouldn’t mean much, but with Eon willing to bend over backwards for their star, it’s possible that Craig will have an important say in who directs the next movie. In fact, he was instrumental in getting Sam Mendes onboard for 2012’s Skyfall.

The only possible fly in the ointment is that Villeneuve is currently working on a new big screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune, so whether he’d have the time to take on Bond 25 is a moot point. But if he does, then we’d be insanely excited as he’s one of the most unique filmmakers working today (just check out his work on Sicario if you don’t think he has the chops for an action movie).
