This weekend marks director Steven Spielberg’s first film in three years and potentially the last under the DreamWorks banner he founded more than 20 years ago.

“Bridge of Spies,” a Cold War thriller starring Tom Hanks, opens in theaters in the U.S. and Canada this weekend, with critics applauding the picture and deeming it Oscar-worthy. It’s co-produced with Participant Media, a maker of socially conscious films that looks set to play a crucial supporting role in Spielberg’s future moviemaking.
