A Deep Dive into the History & Making of Steven Spielberg's "Hook" and how it came to be. From its origins as an abandoned Steven Spielberg follow up to Temple of Doom, to how it was almost made by an entirely different director, and its troubled reception upon release. Featuring rarely seen promotional & behind the scenes material from the Making of Hook.
