Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks recently shared a competition between Hanks and Harrison Ford for title of “actor who’s made the most Spielberg movies.”  Recently during an interview about their newest film “Bridge of Spies”  coming to theatres, today, Spielberg mentioned how excited he was to make Indiana Jones 5, although that would put Harrison ahead of Hanks. At this time, both are tied at 4 movies each, but Spielberg said once Indiana Jones 5 is done he would have to make another film for Tom Hanks.   Plans for Indiana Jones 5 were confirmed by producer Kathleen Kennedy earlier this year although no details are available yet.   Steven Spielberg has had a close relationship not only with Tom Hanks and Harrison Ford, but also with Daniel Day Lewis who also stars in many of his movies.

Tom Hanks, pictured above with white hair, is starring in the title role of Clint Eastwood’s film about the heroic US Airlines pilot Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger.   Hanks talked about how he doesn’t enjoy watching his own movies.  “The problem with these movies that you’re in, is they never change,” he told the audience. “Once you see them, it’s not like they’re longer or better, or there’s a better angle of you  — they’re locked in stone, and if you hate any moment of it, you hate it for the rest of eternity. I leave the room sometimes when they come on.”  One movie Tom Hanks will watch is the 1996 comedy about the ’60s pop band “That Thing You Do”.   The reason being that the film which Hanks directed was a very positive experience and “came out the way I imagined.” Mr. Spielberg agreed with Hanks except when it comes to watching his movies with his kids.  “I’ve shown E.T. to every one of my seven children at the appropriate age, and I’ve enjoyed watching a movie like that I made through their eyes, because I see it in a different way every time.”  One film he will watch alone if he had to choose would be Raiders of the Lost Ark.
As for Bridge of Spies, with two of my favorites involved in the film, I can’t wait to see it this weekend.  Is it on your list?   Loretta Garcia, Entertainment Writer for wants to hear your comments about the film and as always  –  see ya at the movies !
