    Something tells me that Spielberg commissioned Josh Singer to re-write the screenplay because Liz Hannah’s The Post is a bit too bland.

    Heard it got a mixed reception so Singer came to spruce it up.

    Semi off-topic, but apparently Elizabeth Banks was complaining about Spielberg’s, “lack of female leads.” I’m guessing she hasn’t heard about this new movie or The Color Purple. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Razzie award winning actress gotta do what she gotta do to get Spielberg to hire her.  She shouldn’t talk when she pushed out Movie 43 to the public and thought it was okay

    Wish I was more excited about this collaboration, but I’m just not feeling it :/

    I just have no idea when we get a trailer or production pics. They should be done in August.

    Banks used the word “lack” and true enough, when was the last time Spielberg had a female lead on his movies and compare it to the number of his male-lead movies?

    Very happy and excited to have him and Streep work together for this film.

    Well she’s sorry, all right.

    Regardless of her error, it’s pretty hard to deny the cultural impact Spielberg has had in perpetuating the ‘white male savior’ trope that’s so engrained in American society. Almost all of his films are about some moralistic straight white dude who’s there to save the day.

    If your snarky rebuttal is to recall a 1985 movie out of an oeuvre of 30 films, well…

    That’s one of the greatest films to ever come out and focused on racism, colorism, sexism, sexuality, abuse, class, and power for black people (mostly black women) in those times. Yeah, he got all of those other films with white male leads but let’s not deny the importance of The Color Purple.

    People will always find ways to complain about something. Instead of going after Spielberg, they should go after directors who have their female actresses do pointless nudity and random make out scene that serves no purpose in advancing the plot.

    Sure, but The Color Purple has little to do with Spielberg’s impact on the film industry, so bringing it up seems more like a way to divert the issue rather than discuss it.

    You are literally complaining about people complaining and then complaining about something else.

    Sorry for the snark, but between this and Bee’s post, it seems like people’s gut reaction to this kind of conversation is to distract and divert away from the substance of the argument. If you don’t want to engage, why post at all?

    I’m not complaining about anything. Banks and other actresses have been trying to call out many directors and producers for not having enough female lead performance. She wouldn’t have issued an apology if her words were originally what she actually meant

    ^ Ha, let’s not spend time mulling over the subtext of your writing.

    As for Banks, the core of her message is that Spielberg is not a good proponent of gender equality in films – this is true. The subtext is that he is the most powerful director in Hollywood and has an enormous cultural impact. The Color Purple – while an embarrassing admission – does not drastically change the substance of her message.
