Spielberg Rushing To Get His Munich Film Out On Time

Movie-maker STEVEN SPIELBERG is promising film fans and critics his new movie about the 1972 Olympics will hit cinemas on time next month (DEC05), even though composer JOHN WILLIAMS is struggling with the score.

Spielberg is in a real race to complete the film, MUNICH, in time for the all-important Oscars consideration period this side of Christmas (05) - even though the film seems far from finished, according to new movie awards website TheEnvelope.com.

The controversial drama about the hunting down of Palestinian militants who killed 11 Israeli athletes at the Olympic Games only finished filming in late September (05) and Williams has yet to record a single note for the soundtrack.

But Spielberg insists his film will hit cinemas on time.

The director's spokesman MARVIN LEVY says, "There aren't many movies like this, which start shooting around July 1 and plan to be in theatres on December 23. But it will get done. Munich's production is moving forward exactly as it should."

According to the new Los Angeles Times website, which will monitor all the movie awards leading up to the Oscars, 8 December is the last possible day Munich can be considered for the early press awards. Golden Globe ballots are due on 10 December.

Many critics, who vote on the ballots, have been told they'll see the film in early December.

Hey WOWMAN,You're a real jerk. You are obviously a real anti-semite. All his movies don't center around Jewish themed events. You are probably one of those wack jobs that believe the holocaust never happened. Most of his movies are not Jewish centric but you, in your bigoted ways can't see that. Myabe you have heard of Jaws or Indiana Jones? I am betting your intelligence level is very low. Take your nazism elswhere scumbag

And what if Spielberg's movies all had Jewish themes. Fellini's movies all have Italian and Italian catholic themes. Jewish culture is rich and long and Jewish contributions to western civilization are profound. If not for the Jews and Greeks the we would all be sacrificing our children to pagan gods and running around in bear skins. Ofcourse, the Nazi skinheads like that idea and practice pagan rituals in their compounds in Idaho.

I guess E.T. was a jew too? Or perhaps the T-Rex in Jurassic Park was some how persecuted? No, no - it must have been obviously jewish Leonardo Dicaprio that the willowy, waspy white males are trying to hold down.

I'm glad Spielberg is making a film about Munich. I saw the real thing on TV, the daily real-life drama of terrorists doing what they do best, kill and destroy. This movie is about the facts of what happened that horrible summer, in Munich Germany of all places. I know a lot of people in the Muslim world will despise this movie, but the truth hurts. Munich was just a start of this terror war against the west and Israel. There's no appeasing them. So I'm glad Spielberg made the movie, for historical fact and rememberance. Oh, by the way I don't think the shark in Jaws was jewish or the aliens in Close Encounters.

Maybe Speilberg should do a movie on the Israeli terrorists who killed British and Palestinians in the 1948 war. I, for one, am sick and tired of Jews whining, as if only they suffer. Jews (Pearl, Wolfowitz, Irving Libby, Adelman, etc. etc.) got us into Iraq, no question on that one.

How surprising, an anti-semite. maybe spielberg thinks it's important to show the world that the ARABS are responsible for modern terrorism and that it was they who began this fight. they are not the poor downtrodden, peace-loving people they claim to be, but rather a blood thirsty, ignorant and arrogant people who will argue with you that the sky is not blue but orange, and that it is the jews fault that the sky is orange.
