In honor of Halloween, we’re celebrating the best costumes characters have donned in cinema. Starting with Amanda Seyfried in “Mean Girls,” here are five faves.
George Lucas created the character of professor-archaeologist-adventurer Indiana Jones back in the early ’80s, and had a primary hand in conceiving the stories featured in his first four feature films (all directed by Steven Spielberg). However, when asked about the in-the-works fifth installment in the popular franchise, screenwriter David Koepp revealed that, this time around, Lucas hasn’t been involved in the story process.
We’re getting closer to Halloween and we can’t wait! Last week we shared Halloween movies that the whole family could enjoy together. This week we have different titles that definitely aren’t for kids, but aren’t too extreme that only horror fans would enjoy them. Here are three good scary but not too scary movies you can stream right now.
Sam Neill stopped by The Graham Norton Show where host Graham Norton asked him about shooting the classic scene from Jurassic Park when Neill, playing Dr. Alan Grant, sees a dinosaur for the first time. Neill explained that what he was really looking at was director Steven Spielberg waiving a tennis ball at the end of a long stick. Norton wanted to recreate the scene with British comedian and actress Miranda Hart playing the Laura Dern role, Ewan McGregor as the director, and comedian John Bishop playing the tennis ball…or, rather, the dinosaur.

While two new minority members, Roger Ross Williams and Sharen K. Davis, are joining the board, the number of women on the board remains essentially the same
Like Dr. Seuss, Roald Dahl had a true gift for manufacturing bizarro words. In his 1982 classic The BFG, the odd phraseology comes to us via the titular big guy, whose version of our vocabulary is close enough to understand, yet disparate enough to be sublimely wackadoo. The Big Friendly Giant’s words come alive in the new Steven Spielberg-directed movie version, with Oscar winner Mark Rylance (Bridge of Spies) playing the eponymous role.
Mark Rylance — who won a surprise Oscar in February for his performance in Steven Spielberg’s "Bridge of Spies" — plays the vegetarian giant in the director’s latest fantasy, "The BFG," an adaptation of the Roald Dahl children’s story.
Steven Spielberg will tackle his long-gestating religious period drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara after he wraps Ready Player One, setting his Bridge of Spies co-star Mark Rylance to star in the Amblin Entertainment project. Tony Kushner, who worked on Spielberg’s Lincoln and Munich, wrote the script adapting the David Kertzer novel, which has been in development with the filmmaker since 2008. The true story centers on a 6-year-old Jewish boy who, in 1858, was seized by the police and removed from his parents’ home. He was raised as a Catholic and became a priest in the Augustinian order.
The second trailer for Steven Spielberg’s The BFG, the big-screen adaptation of Roald Dahl’s tale about the relationship between a benevolent giant and an orphan girl, has arrived, complete with our first full view of the film’s giant.
