You're not going to get a feature film quality camera for a low price. You can get a 4K home video camera and yes they're really 4K - but resolution is only one factor. There is also compression,...

Most experts contend that a 4K scan is sufficient to capture all the data of 35mm film. Some say it's even overkill. There's some debate in this area because celluloid doesn't actually have...

Spielberg exits projects all the time. ROBOPOCALYPSE most definitely had a release date when Spielberg "postponed" it. And the last thing he said about that project, by the way, was that he was...

I think you'll find I have been fairly skeptical of Spielberg's commitment before and after the postponement. Is there a specific quote you want to look at?

Everybody strap in for three years of bickering about THE LAST JEDI while we wait for Spielberg to walk away from this project.

They say the production budget ended up at $185 million. It should be noted though that Spielberg went overbudget on CRYSTAL SKULL - a rarity for him - and paid a premium to shoot the movie entirely...

I've noticed that the new release date has led people to conclude that Kasdan was hired for a page one rewrite rather than a polish. It's totally possible, but there's another possibility, which is...

It would be more correct to say we all know the exact opposite. He was the frst choice as far as Spielberg was concerned. Lucas resisted because he was concerned about casting Ford in too many of...

That Spielberg and Ford are a package deal is a good point, and the main reason I'm not quite convinced they are indeed transitioning away from the approach where Ford gets full screentime. Time...

"What this movie really needs is for Harrison Ford to be 77 when we shoot it. It would be ideal if John Williams is 90 when he composes it, too."

There is a pretty big gulf between six screenwriters over nineteen years and two screenwriters over two years. In addition, Darabont managed to come up with a script that was fairly cohesive and not...

Kasdan's cardinal qualification in my eyes is the fact that he isn't David Koepp. I think the more critical question right now though is not who replaced Koepp, but why Koepp needed replacing. The...

Only Spielberg or Ford could have caused a delay, because only they could have rejected the script. I don't think this is like Star Wars where Iger and Kennedy and whomever else has to rubberstamp...
