The Now Conspiring podcast team flocked to the theaters this weekend to catch up on all your would-be favorites. Do these latest mid-summer movies get through our rigorous litmus test of nonsense and high expectations?
At the very end of the show, we have an awesome spoiler review/discussion about Paper Towns with a clear spoiler warning. Don’t worry, it’s the very last part of the show. We also cover a ton of headlines for this week in entertainment, a box office catchup, and a new segment called “This Week in Brie Larson!
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: What is your favorite REVENGE movie?
I’ll be posting more thoughts on the trailer over the next few hours, but here’s your chance to watch it a few times. For reference, that’s “Crystals” by Of Monsters and Men (a song we actually featured on the podcast a few months back).
This week on Now Conspiring, I’m joined by a full cast to review Ant-Man, Trainwreck, and Mr. Holmes. Later in the show, we cover the latest box office numbers, entertainment news, and your feedback from last week.
QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Who do you think is the BEST actor in Hollywood right now?
Adapting movies from video games is no easy thing. It sparks fear and discord among burned Hollywood executives who’ve had to throw money in the trash for Super Mario, the Prince of Persia, and Hitman (and possibly again with Agent 47). Why would The Witcher be any different?
This is a recent post I published on Moviepilot concerning the future of The Witcher, a popular series of video games adapted from short stories and novels written by Andrzej Sapkowski. In it, I give a crash course on what The Witcher is, where it came from, and where it’s likely going.
Needless to say, I think this franchise is gearing up for a massive release across mediums. And we should all take notice.
And with that, we have finished the Pixar Detective!
Guys and gals, thank you so much for reading this story we’ve made for you since last April. It’s legitimately been one of the coolest projects I’ve ever been a part of, and I promised myself I wouldn’t cry! Oh wait, you can’t see me…
We’re finishing the Pixar Detective with Chapter 30, and the name of Part 3 is….
This week on the Now Conspiring podcast, I’m joined by Adonis Gonzalez, Kayla Savage, and Maria Garcia as we cover the best news and announcements coming out of this year’s Comic-Con in San Diego.
Unfortunately, we recorded the podcast just before the trailers for Batman v Superman, Deadpool, and Suicide Squad, so we don’t cover any of those big moments. Still, we cover a ton of relevant news for you guys to dig your teeth into. It’s basically like you’re really there. Or your ears, at least.
Say what you will about Pixar releasing two original films in one year, but you can’t deny how great it is that they’re also giving us two original shorts on top of those films.
Lava (the short attached to Inside Out) certainly struck a chord among audiences, but it’s looking like Sanjay’s Super Team will have an even stronger effect. The short film premiered back in June, but Pixar has given lucky Comic-Con attendees an early screening, and the response is excellent so far.
