Director Steven Spielberg says he has changed the direction of his moviemaking after the 9/11 terror attacks in America.

The 65-year-old - who is well-known for family friendly projects such as E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Indiana Jones franchise and Jurassic Park - said he felt compelled to create "darker" films after the tragedy, Daily Express reported.

"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.

"So I think the world has a great impact on how it colours my movies. I think that's a good sign. It just means I'm changing by being aware of what's happening," he said.
