The third to last episode where we bring Tyler on one last time to talk Wonder Woman, Adam Wingard filming Godzilla vs King Kong, and where the Animaniacs reboot fits within Time Warner’s streaming entities (especially with Tyler’s OTT streaming trial impressions). I try something new in finding out how all our weekends have gone, talk Nintendo’s online service for the Switch, Walmart training employees for Black Friday with VR, and the Amazon engineer trusting Twitch chat with his life savings.
The week in which Wanda has been added to the Fortune 500, Legendary is making a Pokemon movie, VCR production is finally coming to an end, Max Landis is behind the new Pepe Le Pew movie, Marvel and DC’s latest Hall H announcements, Lionsgate’s rumored game plan for Divergent, Brazil’s Globo is the first broadcaster to join the 4K HDR party, and Nate Parker is already setting up shop for his next production. Also, Twitch joins the fight against Counter Strike: GO gambling, Twitter allows anyone to submit for its blue checkmark, Elon Musk unveiled Tesla’s new master plan, the Mr. Robot VR broadcast, Blair Witch, and a Kentucky man stops his movie theater fight by pulling out a gun.
This week I decided to be a cheap jerk and make Steve catch Adam Sandler’s second Netflix exclusive, The Do-Over, as well as Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Preacher pilot (22:15). Steve caught the natural header, X-Men: Apocalypse in 3D (32:45) and last year’s Cannes standout, The Lobster (42:12). Finally, I saw another comicbook pilot in Cinemax’s Outcast (54:49) and give my impressions of Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate (58:49).
The episode in which my car gets broken into again, The Muppets are playing Outside Lands, Seth Rogen is adapting another comic book for TV, Warners has decided in favor of more DC instead of risks, Marvel is going to Freeform and Sony, while not staying true to itself, reactions to Rogue One’s first trailer, Starz joins the OTT train, and 4K UHD Blu-rays are becoming a clearer picture. Plus, sports broadcasting on Twitter and Yahoo/the latter being acquired, VR being used for real world applications, Pharrell is producing Hidden Figures, Charlize Theron re-teaming with past directors, and Caitlyn Jenner appearing on Transparent.
The episode in which we talk about Star Wars making more money at the box office than actual releases, Episode 7 coming to Netflix next year, Back to the Future Day, Chris Rock hosting the Oscars, Power Rangers casting announcements, Disney adapting more attractions, the Sherlock Victorian special, and YouTube Red subscription service. Plus, discussion about Steve Jobs, Crimson Peak, Bridge of Spies, Room, Day of the Dead, Interior. Leather Bar, The Guest, You’re Next, and Paranormal Activity.
