Summer season has arrived at the multiplex! Which is strange to say, because Avengers: Infinity War has been out for nearly two weeks now, and with it comes the traditional blockbuster frame. But now that summer officially is beginning, the ReelBlend guys are going to break the upcoming slate down for you on the latest episode of their weekly podcast. Want to download and listen later? ReelBlend is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, or wherever podcasts are served.
This week, the guys kick off with a spirited discussion about the potential Avengers 4 title... and whether they care at all what it's going to be called. The title is important, but mainly, they all feel that once it's revealed, the hype surrounding the potential title will be larger than the impact of the actual reveal.
From there, conversation switches to Solo: A Star Wars Story -- which Jake and Kevin will see this week when doing the press junket in L.A. And then the guys weigh in on the new Childish Gambino video for "This is America," with Kevin nailing a particularly compelling interpretation of what he thinks Donald Glover is trying to say with the clip.
This week's episode is mainly focused on the Summer Movie season, so ReelBlend hosts Sean O'Connell, Kevin McCarthy and Jake Hamilton break the slate down into various categories: Most Anticipated; Least Anticipated; Highest Grossing (not named Avengers: Infinity War); and Indie/Off-the-Radar.
Before they hopped to the John Williams debate, the guys launched an impromptu Unpopular Opinion, because Sean told Kevin he doesn't really like Mad Max: Fury Road... and this melted Kevin's brain.
And as if their minds weren't blown enough, the guys this week used #WilliamsBlend to debate the BEST John Williams score. Listen to this week's episode to see what they chose.
