Lebanon has banned Steven Spielberg's newspaper drama The Post just days before the film is set to premiere in Beirut.

A source involved with The Post's international rollout says the movie, which stars Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, was presented to the Lebanese censorship board, which nixed it, citing a "boycott Israel" list that includes Spielberg due to his Oscar-winning Holocaust film Schindler's List (the 1993 film shot some scenes in Jerusalem).

The matter has been transferred to Lebanon's Minister of Interior and Municipalities, who could overturn the decision.

Unlike Gal Gadot, whose film Wonder Woman was banned in Lebanon in May, Spielberg is not an Israeli citizen nor has he ever fought with the Israeli Army. Lebanon is officially at war with Israel.

Italia Film was poised to release the film in Lebanon on Jan. 18. A spokesperson for Spielberg's Amblin Entertainment says he cannot comment because the company has not been told officially by the Lebanese distributor The Post will not be released there because of censorship.

The source says the move came as a shock given that over the past three years, at least five films either directed or produced by Spielberg were accepted and approved by the censorship board, and it is only now that it is invoking Spielberg's inclusion on the "boycott Israel" list. Both The BFG and Bridge of Spies — which mark Spielberg's two most recent helming efforts before The Post — were released in Lebanon.

Robert De Niro Gives Donald Trump A Less-Than-Presidential Nickname In Awards Show Rant

  Robert De Niro Gives Donald Trump A Less-Than-Presidential Nickname In Awards Show Rant Donald Trump has his celebrity supporters — Kid Rock, Roseanne, um, Ted Nugent — but they’re far outnumbered by famous detractors. Robert De Niro, for instance, has repeatedly criticized the “bullsh*t artist” president, whose victory in 2016 he compared to 9/11. But the Taxi Driver saved his best material for Tuesday night. Speaking at the National Board of Review Annual Awards Gala, where he introduced Meryl Streep, the screen legend and two-time Oscar winner called Trump a “f*cking idiot” and “f*cking fool.” He wasn’t f*cking done. “At the time of [Steven Spielberg’s The Post, which Streep stars in], Donald Trump was suffering from ‘bone spurs.’ Today, the world is suffering from the real Donald Trump. Come on. You know? What are we talking about? This f*cking idiot is the president. It’s the Emperor’s New Clothes. The guy is a f*cking fool… Our government today, with the propping of the baby-in-chief ― the jerkoff-in-chief, I call him ― has put the press under siege, ridiculing it through trying to discredit it through outrageous attacks and lies.” (Via) “The movie gave us glimpses of President Nixon as delusional, narcissistic, petty, vindictive, nasty, and batsh*t f*cking crazy,” De Niro added, from one dirty grandpa to another. “Ah, the good old days.” Here’s the full rant. Tonight's full Robert De Niro speech introducing Meryl Streep at the National Board of Review gala, referring to Trump: "This fucking idiot is the president.

Lebanon bans The Post over Steven Spielberg ' s support for Israel. The reversal of the ban is unusual. Lebanon is technically at war with Israel, and the movement to boycott Israel enjoys wide support in the country.

Steven Spielberg got some unexpected news in regards to his latest Oscar hopeful. His new movie The Post , starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep, has just been banned in Lebanon , a source close to the project has revealed.

The '70s-set film, which chronicles Washington Post publisher Katharine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) quest to publish the Pentagon Papers, is critical of the U.S. government.

In the case of Wonder Woman, the Lebanese government took issue with the fact that the film’s star, Gadot, served in the military (as is required of all Israeli citizens).

The Post has been doing brisk business in the United States in limited release. Since Fox released it on Dec. 22, the $50 million film from Amblin and Participant Media has earned $4.2 million. This weekend, The Post expands nationwide into 2,819 theaters, where it is expected to take in about $21 million for the four-day Martin Luther King frame.
