Steven Spielberg admits his films became “darker” after September 11. The ‘War House’ director says he was changed by the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington in 2001 and that has come across in his work, though he admits the professional shift wasn’t intentional. He said: “9/11 changed a lot for me. It changed a lot for everybody in the world. And my films did grow darker after 9/11. ‘Minority Report’ was a very dark look at the future, and certainly ‘War of the Worlds’, which was a very direct reference to 9/11. It was a real post-9/11 story. Not intended that way, but that’s the way it turned out.                –EPS
