Exclusive

Steven Spielberg goes in front of the camera for Spielberg documentary trailer

The film airs Oct. 7 on HBO

Instead of making movies, Steven Spielberg is going to be the star of one.

The upcoming HBO documentary Spielberg chronicles the legendary director’s life and legacy, and now, EW has an exclusive first look at the trailer. The feature-length doc not only spotlights Spielberg’s unparalleled work — including Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, and more — but takes a deep dive into the director’s almost 50-year career.

Documentarian Susan Lacy conducted almost 30 hours of interviews with Spielberg himself, discussing everything from his early career to his creative thought process. The film also includes interviews with a wide-ranging number of collaborators and friends, including J.J. Abrams, Christian Bale, Drew Barrymore, Cate Blanchett, Francis Ford Coppola, Daniel Craig, Daniel Day-Lewis, Brian de Palma, Laura Dern, Leonardo DiCaprio, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Kingsley, George Lucas, Liam Neeson, Martin Scorsese, Oprah Winfrey, and Robert Zemeckis.

Spielberg will debut on HBO on Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET.
