For the first time in the history of Now Conspiring, we completely botched the recording of an episode. The original episode featured me, Kayla, Maria, and Adonis making podcast gold talking about movies that are the most rewatchable, but one corrupted audio file later, I was forced to rerecord the episode by myself.
This is a weird, but thankfully short episode that I don’t encourage anyone to actually listen to. Seriously, don’t press play. Stop. OK, fine you can listen, but I warned you.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What is YOUR most “rewatchable” movie?
This week on the podcast, we review Straight Outta Compton and The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and great news! The whole cast is here this week, so we had tons of opinions and thoughts to share.
We also covered the latest entertainment news, read our favorite comments you left for us last week, gave you our Netflix Recommendation of the Week, then covered new movie releases you can check out next weekend.
(Amy, we’re pretty glad we won you in the “breakup”)
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What is your favorite movie scene EVER?
Today at the D23 expo in Anaheim, John Lasseter (Disney CCO) broke the news to CNBC what will be going down for Pixar’s next film in the Toy Story franchise.
Lasseter: It’s a love story with Woody and – and this is news – Bo Peep… At Pixar and at Disney, we only make sequels if we come up with a story that’s as good or better than the original. That’s our rule. We don’t do things just to print money.
Guys, I’m stoked. As many of you are aware, I’ve speculated about Bo Peep’s destiny a lot in the past, so it’s great to hear that Pixar is opening the pages to that story. And it will be even better if Annie Potts reprises her role as the porcelain lamp.
John Lasseter and Josh Cooley (story artist for Inside Out) will be helming Toy Story 4, which is being written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack.
Something bears repeating, by the way. The story idea for Toy Story 4 came directly from John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton, Pete Docter, and Lee Unkrich. This isn’t B team. I know you might be a little wary about Pixar messing with what is pretty much a perfect trilogy, but it’s not like they’re handing the reigns to someone over in Disney Toon studios or whatever it’s called these days.
Toy Story 4 is set to release sometime in June, 2017.
This week on the Now Conspiring podcast, I’m joined by Kayla Savage, Adonis Gonzalez, and Maria Garcia as we take an in-depth look at Fantastic Four and whether or not it’s worth watching.
