The episode in which I was lucky Brennan from Scream 101 Podcast joined me because Steve fell asleep before recording, HBO isn’t sending Game of Thrones screeners out anymore, the 21 Jump Street/Men in Black flick is still a thing, Sony is making a standalone Venom franchise, I talk cool additions to the Amazon Echo line (and Brennan has first hand experiences), and Universal Japan is making a Nintendo Land. Plus, VR is coming to Six Flags and McDonalds, I do my Michael Keaton impression, MAX LANDIS, a WWE sequel to Surf’s Up, and the continuing adventures of Steven Soderbergh’s “retirement.”
The episode in which we speculate what The Hateful Eight announcement will be, review Amazon’s premium add-on subscription offerings, Netflix doubling original content in 2016, VR feeling closer than ever/my first impressions of Google Cardboard, Ang Lee returning to 3D filmmaking, The Rock making an 80s style buddy action comedy, Lionsgate possibly making prequels to The Hunger Games, Universal’s shared monster universe casting rumors, and Mr. Robot season 2 being helmed entirely by Sam Esmail.
The episode in which we talk about even more adaptations, watching movies on Apple tech, mononyms, the dream of a Disneyland attraction shared universe event, and cinema breakthroughs being tied to controversial stories.
We basically review Sinister 2 and The End of The Tour as well, which leads to us looking toward the future of our careers.
This week Steve tries to guess what my screenplay is about as we talk about food, theater shootings, the evolution of genre, studios mashing together all their properties, The Rock making more adaptations, and some geeky tech stuff.
Let’s hope Dwayne Johnson ROCKS this movie and its not a disaster.
