Steven Spielberg has redefined the profession of filmmaking. Right back from ‘Jaws’, Spielberg has been giving movies to the world which have become benchmarks on filmmaking. His unique vision and creativity separate him from others and make him one of the best directors in the history. Particularly, the sci-fi genre has taken some giant steps thanks to his support. With Steven Spielberg, it has always been the case of touching the viewers with strong emotions while giving visual treats to them.

Film franchises like ‘Indiana Jones’ and ‘Jurassic Park’ clearly show how he has revolutionized the process of filmmaking. For the teens of our generations, he acts as a Godsend for the wonderful entertainment he provided to us when we were kids. His films have something for everyone and never offend anyone even though, he often deals with some controversial topics as in case of ‘Schindler’s List’. In fact, he took that project when no one else was willing to touch something so controversial. Also, when he tried something new, he showed immense courage as these projects can often backfire.

His career as both director and producer has been so illustrious that we can’t ask for more from him. But he continues to deliver. He even ventured into some new territory and created epics like ‘The Adventures of Tintin’. It is difficult to say whether he has been more successful as a director or producer. We all wonder if there is anything left for him to do in this largely imperfect world. Yet, he continues to make movies. At this point, the question that might be circling your mind is what is the next Steven Spielberg movie? Well, you are at the right place. Here’s the list of upcoming Steven Spielberg films scheduled to release in 2018 and 2019. We can only hope that the latest new Steven Spielberg movie could be as good as some of his recent ones.
