Steven Spielberg Receives the Inkpot Award from Comic-Con 2011 brought to you by Funny
Encouraging everyone to remain kids at heart, and to thereby enable him to continue making movies, Steven Spielberg spoke to his fans at last week’s Comic-Con 2011 in San Diego upon receiving the convention’s Inkpot Award.
Spielberg used Comic-Con to inform fans of a fourth “Jurassic Park” movie. Interestingly, although the first movie in the franchise grossed in excess of $900 million worldwide in 1993, each subsequent installment saw a substantial box-office drop, constituted by a $600+ million haul for “The Lost World,” and $300+ million for “Jurassic Park III.”
Still, Spielberg is on a roll, racking up 2011 credits as both producer and director on a range of television and film products. He was also at Comic-Con to talk about his collaboration with “The Lord of the Rings” franchise-helmer Peter Jackson on “The Adventures of Tintin,” which stars Daniel Craig, Simon Pegg, Jamie Bell, Andy Serkis, Nick Frost, Toby Jones, Car Elwes and Gad Elmaleh.
