Talk about a dynamic duo!
The AMAZING Bradley Cooper will be teaming up with iconic director Steven Spielberg on his next project, American Sniper!
The film will focus on the life of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who was regarded as one of the best snipers in US military history up until his death earlier this year.
Does this mean we get to see B Coop in uniform?!! …. Sorry, we got distracted there for a second! LOLz!
But seriously, the last two movies directed by Spielberg (War Horse, Lincoln) were both nominated for Best Picture, and with Bradley's performance in Silver Linings Playbook getting him an Oscar nom, they could end up being a match made in heaven!
Honestly, we're a little surprised they haven't teamed up before, but they have to start somewhere, right?

Run - or gallop on your steed - to the Vivian Beaumont Theater to see War Horse before it closes!
We had never seen the play - or the Spielberg film adaptation - but we really wanted to see it before it ends its run in January. And we're sure glad we did!
A simple story about a boy and his horse. Told in a not so simple fashion.
Everything about the show is stunning!
And, yes, we cried! A healthy, cathartic cry!
We were so moved by the show! And the storytelling! And the performances! And those freakin' puppets!
Those horses just come to life on stage! And we feel for them so deeply! It is truly breathtaking and MUST-SEE!
In many ways, this production reminds us a lot of July Taymor's The Lion King musical. A show that transcends to source material written for children and appeals to all ages, while benefiting from the simplicity of story.
Truly truly exquisite stuff!

Steven Spielberg's War Horse was nominated for an Oscar at last year's Academy Awards and with Daniel Day-Lewis' help, he just might be nominated again!
The first teaser for Lincoln has hit the web (above) and shows a brief glimpse of the man the biopic is about, as well as the war his name became synonymous with.
We don't see much, but that's because the teaser is actually teasing the first trailer for the film which hits the box office on November 16th.
Tune in to www.LincolnMovieHangout.com on September 13 at 7 p.m. EDT/4 p.m. PDT to watch the world premiere AND a live chat with the film's director, as well Joseph Gordon-Levitt!

Oh good lord.
Get the tissues out now. We're warning you!
It appears that Dakota Fanning is taking the Mandy Moore in A Walk to Remember route for her next movie, Now Is Good, as she plays a 17 year old girl who decides to stop treating her leukemia so can she spend the rest of her limited life doing the things that she'd like to, before she passes away!
And of course, things are complicated when she falls for her neighbor, played by War Horse's Jeremy Irvine.
Check out the just-released trailer (above)!
Yeah. We're already choking back tears.
It DOES look genuinely very good and funny, on top of the obvious sads, and Dakota's pretty brilliant in everything in which she stars, so yeah!
We'll definitely be checking this out! How about U?

People are unpredictable and as a result, so is Twitter!
An Australian movie theater chain introduced a live Twitter feed on their website in an effort to
anger parents everywhere be cool and modern (or something like that), but the plan totally backfired.
We guess the company wanted to get feedback on the movies they were playing in real time, but didn't anticipate how immature the internet is. Here are a couple of tweets about The Descendants and War Horse that the theater displayed on the site:

When Steven Spielberg decided to make the film War Horse one of the main reasons for doing it was to make sure veterans' service will never be forgotten.
Spielberg wanted to make the film to honor his father, who was a radio operator on a plane during World War II.

Steven Spielberg recently premiered his movie War Horse in the UK.
In attendance, other than Spielberg himself and an actual horse as we previously mentioned, were the Royals.
Prince William and Kate Middleton walked the red carpet alongside everyone else.
Spielberg even made a short speech before the film's screening about the Royals:
"It's a very prestigious honor because they represent an entirely new era in British royalty that has the entire world excited.
When they came to America, that was one of the most exciting events, I think, that we've enjoyed for some time, so it's such an honor to be here in the UK to be able to meet them and to be able to show them, and all of us, 'War Horse.'"
While the legendary director honored them with a speech, Spielberg's wife helped the Royals during a time of need. She passed Kate a tissue when she was crying during the film.
"I saw the Kleenex go across my face, arrive and stop but I didn't want to intrude on her experience watching 'War Horse' so I never glanced over."
Awww, she was crying.
And Spielberg's wife… so polite and proper.
The Spielbergs truly are American Royalty.
