Sometimes you get what you wish for. Last summer, producer Frank Marshall said he was hoping the forever-developing "Jurassic Park 4" would hit theaters in 2014, and how just about six months later, it looks like that's exactly what's going to happen.

This last week has been somewhat of a mixed bag for Steven Spielberg. Sure there’s been a whole host of Oscar nominations, but there’s also been the collapse of his highly anticipated adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson’s novel, “Robopocalypse.” The film, penned by “Cabin in the Woods” writer Drew Goddard, had already been allotted an April 25, 2014 release date, and had a tremendous lead cast being lined up including Anne Hathaway, Chris Hemsworth and Ben Whishaw. The official line from Spielberg’s spokesman was that the film was “too important and the script not ready, and it’s too expensive to produce. It’s back to the drawing board to see what’s possible.”

After a rough half-decade or so ("Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," "The Adventures of Tintin," "War Horse," failing to get "Harvey" made), Steven Spielberg is back to enjoying the kind of success he's used to; "Lincoln" is closing on $150 million domestically alone, and is likely to be the most nominated films when the Oscar nods are announced first thing tomorrow.

As fans of Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" probably already know by now, Daniel Day-Lewis originally rejected the role, and the world's most famous living director had to chase the notoriously discerning actor for nine years before he agreed to take the titular part. Obviously, he eventually relented. "Lincoln" has already grossed a terrific $144 million domestically and it's poised to be one of the biggest Oscar nominees when the nods are announced on Thursday. Spielberg recently unveiled the rejection letter that Day-Lewis sent him circa 2003 (via THR), leading him to go after Liam Neeson, before circling eventually circle back to Day-Lewis).

Last year, Steven Spielberg may have missed out for "War Horse," but this year his colleagues are making sure he's honored for his much better-received "Lincoln." The Director's Guild Award nominations have arrived this afternoon, two days before the Academy unveils their Oscar nominations, and generally speaking, they tend to be a good indicator of who will be honored next month at the Dolby Theater.

"The Adventures of TIntin," Steven Spielberg's performance-capture-animation adaptation of Herge's boy reporter comics character, wasn't quite taken to the hearts of American audiences last year. Reviews were lukewarm, and, in a packed Christmas season, the film was crushed by the competition, hobbling to a fairly meagre $77 million domestically; not so great for a film that cost well, well north of $100 million.

Somewhat surprisingly, CBS has bypassed the usual pilot song-and-dance and gone ahead and ordered thirteen episodes of "Under the Dome," an adaptation of Stephen King's beloved doorstop-sized novel, adapted by comic book creator Brian K. Vaughan and executive produced by Steven Spielberg. The series should begin airing/scaring the crap out of audiences next summer.

Steven Spielberg Says He Offered To Direct A Bond Film In The '70s, But Was Turned Down

Who would have thought at the beginning of the '70s that the guy who directed "Duel" would emerge ten years later with two the biggest films of the decade under his belt, with "Jaws" and "Close Encounters Of The Third Kind." But looking back, it's also interesting to consider what could have been. While Spielberg no longer has to chase jobs and has scripts coming to him, back then, he was still a filmmaker on the rise looking to make a name for himself. You might recall the budding filmmaker sent a script to the fake movie company the CIA set up for the operation outlined in Ben Affleck's "Argo," and had thinks gone differently, Spielberg would have taken on one biggest franchises of all time.

It was just over a decade ago when Steven Spielberg dropped "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" into theaters to a very mixed response. The picture was more famously known as a project Stanley Kubrick was shepherding for years (he was waiting for technology to be able to realistically create David -- eventually played by Haley Joel Osment -- believing no child actor could do it), with Spielberg seeing it into production and completion after the death of his filmmaker and friend. And it seems the movie could never quite shake off speculation of what Kubrick would have done versus what Spielberg actually made.  But perhaps the biggest point of contention came with the ending, which fast fowards the story 2000 years, putting a happier sheen on what would have been a darker conclusion.
