Behind The Scenes: Steven Spielberg Directing Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep On The Set Of THE POST
With Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep amongst its talent, you have to as yourself the question – how come The Post is good, but not great?
The ’70s set Richard Nixon/Washington Post true story has some solid moments but it’s a little light weight and too superficial. Hanks is good, Streep not so much and an impressive sporting cast is wasted in tiny roles. It’s a shame because this could have been great. The ending sets-up the Watergate scandal and it’ll leaving you wishing that you watched All The President’s Men instead. You could say that The Post fails to deliver.
Released in 2017, The Post grossed $81.9 million at the US box office and $179.7 million from a budget of $50 million.
