When Steven Spielberg and George Lucas talk, people tend to listen. So, when these two living legends participated at a panel about the future of entertainment at the University of Southern California and said that Hollywood was heading toward complete and total disaster, plenty of heads were turned. If two of the most successful filmmakers in history think their industry is doomed, then surely they must be right. Right?

Something you've never been able to do is see it in 3D or in IMAX. Until now. And you don't want to miss it.
For decades, Stanley Kubrick's abandoned 'Napoleon' project has been one of the Holy Grails of cinema, one of the greatest "What If?" movies of all time. The unmade film amassed several screenplays, a decade of research and thousands of set and location photos, all for naught. But now, over a decade after Kubrick's death, his 'Napoleon' may be made after all thanks to Steven Spielberg, who wants to bring the late master's epic vision to television.
Any TV fan knows that all good things cinematic come in threes, so why would HBO's collaboration with legendary director Steven Spielberg and Hollywood icon Tom Hanks be any different?
