The man who’s made the most popular (and some of the best) movies of a generation is now the primary focus of one.
Spielberg is just that, a feature length documentary about Steven Spielberg, one of the greatest film directors of all time. Produced by HBO, documentarian Susan Lacy conducted almost 30 hours of interviews with Spielberg himself, then also sat down with numerous others in an all-star lineup of industry giants and Spielberg collaborators (many being both):
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.
Spielberg premieres on HBO on Saturday October 7, 2017, and will play for free for one month – even for non-subscribers – on HBO Now (hbonow.com).
