Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis To Participate In Yahoo! Q&A Following Early Screening Of Lincoln

'Lincoln' NYC sneak preview -- Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis

Steven Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis will take part in a live question-and-answer session on Yahoo! in New York following an early special multi-city screening of Lincoln on Oct. 10.  Dreamworks Pictures, which will release Lincoln on Nov. 16,  announced on Monday that the discussion with the director and star of the hightly anticipated film will take place in New York after a 7 p.m. screening at the AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13 on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.  The movie will also simultaneously screen in nine other cities: Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Boston, Washington DC, Seattle, Miami, Atlanta and Houston.  The Q&A will stream live on Yahoo! Movies and audiences at the screenings will view it live via satellite after the film. Questions can be submitted via Twitter using the hashtag: #Lincolnmovie. Let's hope this goes more smoothly than the glitchy Google Hangout session with Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt that took place Sept. 4.

    My question is for Mr. Spielberg: Everyone knows you made great movies up until Jurassic Park. You had the Midas touch. Then you made your masterpiece, Schindler's List (also excellent). What happened to you that once you made Schindler's List, you can no longer make a movie with a great story that is told well? You were the master of creating beautiful, exciting, and fun movies. Now you make total garbage. What happened? You also used to make visually stunning movies. Then you started shooting with Janus. Do you regret making that change. Is Jurassic Park 2 the ugliest movie you have ever made? Did you ever throw up in your mouth watching the dailies of Jurassic Park 2? Are you a masochist? Just trying to figure out why you kept shooting with such a bad DP. Did you also find yourself laughing hysterically when you watched the climax of Munich which intercut a sex scene with a massacre? Were you going for comedy there? Or was it unintentional? Because the audience I was with must have perceived it as comedy because everyone was snickering.

    And finally, is it true that filmmaking is a young man's game?

    Thank you for answering my questions.

    These screenings... are they open for the public to attend or are they invitation/press only?

  • Jan Kubicki says:

    What's wrong with Philly? We like movies here, too.

  • CJ says:

    How in the HELL did I miss this?! AMC did a pi$$ poor job of advertising in Houston! I would have brought a movie party with me to see this one!

    You can definitely see your skills in the paintings you write. The sector hopes for more passionate writers such as you who aren’t afraid to say how they believe. At all times go after your heart. “Faith in the ability of a leader is of slight service unless it be united with faith in his justice.” by George Goethals.
