Ben Wheatley Talks 'In The Earth,' 'The Meg 2' And 'F9' Trailer Reactions

Powered by RedCircle

Writer/director Ben Wheatley joins the show to chat about his new horror film In the Earth which he wrote and shot in the past year while some of his larger projects have been put on hold. He discusses some of the film’s visual tricks, the origins of the story and characters, working under strict safety protocols and how that might change the outlook of The Meg 2.

In the main show, we react to the new trailer for Zack Snyder’s upcoming zombie action flick Army of the Dead, as well as the trailer for F9. Paramount recently shifted their release calendar seemingly in light of Disney’s recent theatrical shift. And finally, we debate our favorite performances from Oscar Isaac.

Next week, we’re looking to the incredible work from renowned composer, and friend of the show Michael Giacchino. Send in your favorite score or movie scored by Giacchino using #MichaelGiacchinoBlend on Twitter.
