‘Space Jam 2’ Review & Director Adam Robitel Talks ‘Escape Room' Sequel

Powered by RedCircle

Director Adam Robitel joins the show to discuss his new horror sequel Escape Room: Tournament of Champions. He touches on the resurgence of genre films, his approach to a sequel, his upcoming series with Darren Aronofsky and more.

We haven't yet had the chance to chat about Marvel’s return to the big screen on the show, so this week we spend some time breaking down Black Widow’s triumphant box office performance, the potential lasting effects of its success on Disney+ and, of course, review Scarlett Johansson’s final adventure in the MCU.

The world lost a true icon of filmmaking with the passing of Richard Donner. This week, we pivot our BlendGame to #RichardDonnerBlend in order to reflect on his work and celebrate his astonishing accomplishments in the craft.
