Stars come out to praise Steven Spielberg in trailer for new HBO documentary

Whether you count yourself as a fan or not, it's hard to deny the incredible impact which Steven Spielberg has made on the film-making industry. Can you dare to imagine a world in which JAWS, CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND, JURASSIC PARK, SCHINDLER'S LIST, SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, or, my personal favourite film of all-time, RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, just didn't exist? No thank you. A new feature-length documentary, simply titled SPIELBERG, is aiming to take an in-depth look at Steven Spielberg's almost fifty-year long career.

Produced and directed by Susan Lacy, who conducted close to thirty hours of interviews with Steven Spielberg himself, the soon-to-be-released documentary also features interviews with J.J. Abrams, Christian Bale, Drew Barrymore, Cate Blanchett, Francis Ford Coppola, Daniel Craig, Daniel Day-Lewis, Brian De Palma, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Kingsley, George Lucas, Liam Neeson, Martin Scorsese, Oprah Winfrey, and Robert Zemeckis. Lacy said that Spielberg "is very shy about interviews; he does very few. [It’s] quite an extraordinary experience to hear him really open up," adding that "every actor I interview – and I interviewed everybody – they were most impressed with how much he understands the process of film-making and how he sees ahead when he’s shooting. Very few filmmakers have that skill." The 150-minute long documentary will debut on HBO on October 7, 2017 at 8pm ET.
