'Lincoln': Spielberg, Gordon-Levitt on Lincoln as 'a normal guy'

Director Steven Spielberg and actor Joseph-Gordon Levitt joined a Google Hangout Thursday to premiere the trailer for their upcoming film — the biopic Lincoln – and chat with fans. You can watch the full trailer here.

During the chat, Spielberg and Gordon-Levitt, who plays the 16th president’s son Robert Todd Lincoln, put a lot of emphasis on the movie’s portrayal of Abraham Lincoln as a man — just “a normal guy,” Gordon-Levitt said — instead of as the perfect deity of a leader that he’s often depicted to be.

Daniel Day-Lewis surveys the Civil War battlefield in brief 'Lincoln' teaser

The full trailer won’t go up until Thursday, but if you’re hankering for a glimpse at Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln, you can watch this 20-second teaser. It’s not much more than a few Civil War shots, a snippet of John Williams-y music, and what sounds and looks like actor David Oyelowo speaking a portion of President Lincoln’s famed Gettysberg Address back to 16th President of the United States (i.e. Daniel Day-Lewis).

We’ll have to wait, at least until the full trailer’s debut on Sept. 13, or the film’s Nov. 9 debut, to find out what brought an African-American Union soldier to speak so forthrightly to his commander-in-chief. For now, you can check out the teaser below: READ FULL STORY

Daniel Day-Lewis in black-and-white for Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln' poster

Just two weeks ago, we got our first close-up look at Daniel Day-Lewis in character in Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln.

Now comes the first poster for the film, giving a stark black-and-white portrait of Day-Lewis as the 16th U.S. president.

The one-sheet reinforces the remarkable transformation Day-Lewis made for this film, but while the previous image presented Lincoln in a moment of deep thought, this portrait suggests an even more dolorous tone.

It’s an Indiana Jones bonanza!

AMC Theatres and Paramount announced Friday that all four Indiana Jones films, directed by Steven Spielberg and starring a sexy, snarky, fedora-touting Harrison Ford, will be shown in order on AMC’s 69 screens across the country for ONE day only, on Sept. 15. Tickets are available at http://amctheatres.com/indianajones.

The marathon o’ movies – Raiders of the Lost Ark, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – comes in advance of the complete set’s big release on Blu-ray Sept. 18.

Lucasfilm announced earlier in the week that 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark would screen on IMAX beginning Sept. 7 for a week.

Shia LaBeouf: 'I'm done' making big-budget studio movies

Shia LaBeouf, the star of the billion-dollar Transformers franchise and the one-time presumed heir to Indiana Jones’ fedora, ripped into the studio system of filmmaking and declared his intention to give it up. “I’m done,” he told The Hollywood Reporter. “There’s no room for being a visionary in the studio system. It literally cannot exist.”

It’s not the first time that LaBeouf, 26, has raised his voice to the movie gods. Two years ago, he told the Los Angeles Times that Steven Spielberg and Co. (including himself) had dropped the ball in the ill-received Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Turns out those comments injured his relationship with Spielberg, who produced several of LaBeouf’s films, including Transformers. “He told me there’s a time to be a human being and have an opinion, and there’s a time to sell cars,” the actor said. “It brought me freedom, but it also killed my spirits because this was a dude I looked up to like a sensei.”

LaBeouf, 26, is promoting the indie, Lawless, co-starring Tom Hardy and Jessica Chastain, and his upcoming projects are similarly scaled and structured: Robert Redford’s The Company You Keep, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman from music-video director Fredrik Bond, and the soon-to-be-shot Nymphomaniac from Lars von Trier.

'Raiders of the Lost Ark' set for IMAX re-release

raiders-of-the-lost-ark

Fans of a young, sweaty, dirt-covered Harrison Ford as the swashbuckling archaeologist Indiana Jones, hold onto your fedoras.

Steven Spielberg’s 1981 classic adventure romp Raiders of the Lost Ark will be given the big BIG screen treatment with a one-week rerelease in IMAX in September.

Lucasfilm, the studio helmed by the movie’s executive producer, George Lucas, announced that the Raiders IMAX theater showings will begin Sept. 7 as a lead-up to the Blu-ray release of the Indiana Jones series, on sale Sept. 18.

Sure, newer powerhouse films such as Avatar looked crisply modern, deeply blue and lush on IMAX, but Raiders of the Lost Ark is ripe for another generation of new and returning fans of Indiana Jones’s mishaps and misadventures splashed large across a screen. Spielberg told the New York Times no special effects were changed in the IMAX conversion. Only the audio has been bumped up for surround sound.

“When the boulder is rolling, chasing Indy through the cave, you really feel the boulder in your stomach, the way you do when a marching band passes by, and you’re standing right next to it,” Spielberg told the Times.

Another Spielberg favorite, the sharp-toothed 1975 shark saga Jaws, just arrived on Blu-ray this week.

'The Shark is Still Working': The story behind the great doc on the new 'Jaws' Blu-ray -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

jaws

J. Michael Roddy was only six years old in the summer of 1975, but like the rest of the country, he developed shark fever after seeing Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. “There are two things that are really cool to a six year old boy, and that’s dinosaurs and sharks,” says Roddy. “I begged my parents to let me see Jaws, and it was the first time I remember being completely lost in a film. It changed my life.”

Roddy isn’t alone. Jaws changed a lot of people’s lives, beginning with the then 28-year-old Spielberg himself. But in The Shark is Still Working, the splendid Jaws documentary that Roddy produced that’s a bonus on the remastered Blu-ray version of the film available next week, a generation of filmmakers who shared Roddy’s fascination — including Kevin Smith, M. Night Shyamalan, and Bryan Singer — delight in the nerdy details and lasting legacy of Hollywood’s first summer blockbuster. “The intensity of the passion is what surprised me,” says Roddy. “Because it made us feel like, ‘Okay we’re not crazy. Everyone loves that film.'”
