Steven Spielberg is eager to do another Indiana Jones film before Indy himself, Harrison Ford hits 80.  That's what the director said on Monday during an interview with French radio, RTL.  Steven Spielberg said:

"I am hoping one day to make it to an Indiana Jones V. I would hope to make it before Harrison Ford is 80 and I get much older," said Spielberg, who is himself 68.  Harrison Ford is 73.

Spielberg also surprisingly admitted that he is still learning and feels he's not as experienced as some people think.  He said:

"After 40 years I don't feel as experienced as people might assume," he told RTL. "I still feel I am learning and I am really excited by new projects."

He also mentioned Star Wars and said it was unlikely he will ever direct a Star Wars film.

"I am a huge fan of 'Star Wars'.... but I think it was never in my stars for me to direct one," he said.

force awakens retro poster

 If you're over a certain age then you will remember the plain simple Star Wars posters from the 1970's that just boasted large text and no fancy Drew Strewzan magic.  Well Lucasfilm and Disney have released similar posters to promote The Force Awakens.  They really are trying to get the message out that the new film will sit alongside the original trilogy.  A clever bit of marketing.

Abdulhamid Juma, Chairman of the Dubai International Film Festival, said: “I am delighted that we can host such a special event in the company of the screen icon Richard Dreyfuss. ‘Jaws’ has enthralled countless people over the last four decades.  It has many truly memorable screen moments which, helped propel Steven Spielberg, Richard Dreyfuss and many of those involved with the film’s production to the exalted status of Hollywood legends. What a privilege it will be for those present to watch one of the most enduring cinema classics alongside one of the finest actors of his generation in, one of his most iconic roles.”

Richard Dreyfuss commented: “I am delighted to be invited to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Jaws at The Dubai International Film Festival. In my career I’ve always been quietly proud of being associated with a movie that has lost none of its power, even 40 years later.”

The Beginning is a documentary on the making of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, originally produced for the film's DVD release. It covers the entire production of The Phantom Menace, from preproduction to casting to visual effects, editing, and theatrical release.
The Beginning starts with early production work on the film, as George Lucas (returning to the director's chair for the first time since Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope) and Lucasfilm plan how they will bring his vision to the screen. Jake Lloyd auditions for the part of Anakin Skywalker and is eventually cast in the role, joining Natalie Portman (Padmé), Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Liam Neeson (Qui-Gon Jinn). Lucas leads several meetings with ILM, including visual effects supervisor John Knoll, in an effort to figure out how Episode I's many CGI effects would be accomplished -- Jar Jar Binks, in particular, was a challenge, as digital characters were still new at the time.
Other highlights from The Beginning include Steven Spielberg, a longtime friend of Lucas', visiting the set and getting a first look at a battle droid prop; McGregor choosing his lightsaber hilt; stunt rehearsals offering a glimpse at how The Phantom Menace's thrilling lightsaber duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Darth Maul came together; footage of the first scene shot (Darth Sidious and Darth Maul's meeting on Coruscant); a look at the editing of the film featuring early effects and the splicing together of different takes; Frank Oz operating the Yoda puppet and working out his performance; and finally, the opening night release of The Phantom Menace in theaters.

Every Christmas I would get the Argos catalog (the equivalent to Sears in the USA) and look for ages at the toys at the back of the book, especially the Star Wars range.  New toys were often shown in the catalog first before anywhere else.
