Watch the Evolution of Steven Spielberg's Historic Career


It doesn’t look like Steven Spielberg will be retiring from movies anytime soon, but when he does he’ll be ending one of the most accomplished careers in film history. He’s directed multiple record-breaking films, been nominated for several Oscars (and won three), and launched the tradition of the summer blockbuster. If you’re looking for a brief refresher course on his expansive filmography, check out the above video, spotted by Nerdist.

In honor of the release of Spielberg’s 29th film, The BFG, YouTube Channel Burger Fiction created a video looking at the evolution of the director's career. Every movie he’s directed since his 1961 short film Escape to Nowhere is accounted for here. It’s hard to forget he directed such blockbusters as Jaws (1975), E.T. (1982), and Raiders of the Lost Ark (1981), but his 55-plus-year career also includes plenty of other gems that may have fallen off your radar, like The Sugarland Express (1974) and Always (1989). If you’re looking for more movies to add to your summer streaming list, this is a good place to start.
