We smell Oscar buzz!
In the upcoming drama Bridge of Spies, Tom Hanks stars as James Donovan — a lawyer who is assigned by the CIA to negotiate the release of a captured American pilot!
Inspired by true events, the period piece takes place during the Cold War is already generating some buzz for Awards season.
Let's do the math — Academy Award winning actor? Check. Academy Award winning director? Check (some dude Steven Spielberg?) Academy Award winning writers? Ethan and Joel Coen, along with acclaimed playwright Matt Charman!
Yup, it definitely looks like a frontrunner here, folks!
Check out the trailer for Bridge of Spies (above) and go see it in theaters on October 16, 2015.
The 2002 Steven Spielberg film Minority Report told the story of a near-future where police stopped crimes before they happened with the help of psychics called precogs.
Well now we're living in the near future! Not where police solve crimes early, but where sci-fi is on the small screen!
Picking up where the movie left off, in the TV show, Pre-Crime has been abolished for years… but the precogs are still out there. And one of them still wants to help!
But it does have sexy stars Meagan Good and Wilmer Valderrama!
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the future — well, a few months into the future. Minority Report is coming to Fox this fall!
What do movies such as E.T., Close Encounters Of The Third Kind, and Minority Report all have in common?
They're all science fiction based movies that are super awesome and were directed by Steven Spielberg!
And the director is reportedly heading back to that genre with this latest announcement!
Steven Spielberg has apparently signed up to helm the sci-fi movie called Ready Player One based on the popular book by Ernest Cline and the movie will be financed and distributed by Warner Bros.
Here's what the studio's President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production Greg Silverman said about the awesome announcement:
Chris Pratt starring as Indiana Jones is looking more and more likely!
We heard that the Guardians Of The Galaxy star was the top pick to reboot the franchise with a new installment — presumably one that takes place a little earlier in Indy's career.
Well now word is series co-creator Steven Spielberg wants to direct!
Considering Steven hand-picked Chris to star in Jurassic World, it's clear he sees the same potential for superstardom that we do!
And after making three fantastic Indiana Jones films (and one not-so-fantastic one), who better to helm a reboot?
According to inside sources, it's too early to announce anything before Steven sees a script, but this is making us even more excited for another archaeology adventure!

Don't call him Junior!
Chris Pratt is continuing his road to major Hollywood success with yet another revival of a classic franchise.
After revamping Legos, Jurassic Park, and even some 50-year-old comic books, Chris has now set his sights on another Steven Spielberg masterpiece… Indiana Jones!
Or rather, Disney has their sights set on him!
