Film Director

The two-time Oscar best director winner has been one of Hollywood’s most influential figures for decades — and one of the most towering. A prolific producer and screenwriter who co-founded DreamWorks Studios, he ushered in era of the blockbuster with “Jaws,” “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” and “Jurassic Park.” To date, his films have grossed well over $9 billion worldwide, making him the most commercially successful director ever. Critics love him, too, thanks to such resonant fare as “Schindler’s List” and “Saving Private Ryan.” Now he moves easily between tentpole spectacles — 2018 sci-fi actioner “Ready Player One,” the upcoming and much-ballyhooed “Indiana Jones 5” and DC comic adventure “Blackhawk” — and prestige titles such as 2017’s “The Post.”
