Chris McKay, director of The Tomorrow War starring Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski and J.K. Simmons, joins the show. We discuss working with a mega-star like Chris Pratt, working with practical effects on such a massive scale, and if his Nightwing movie will ever see the light of day.
This week is packed with movie releases so we get right into our reviews of some of the major films hitting theaters and streaming services. This includes Steven Soderbergh’s No Sudden Move, Janicza Bravo’s Zola, The Forever Purge starring Josh Lucas (who will be joining the show later this week) and more.
In honor of Soderbergh’s latest film, we take a look back at his career to determine which of his works are our absolute favorites in our BlendGame, #StevenSoderberghBlend. You can play along with next week’s BlendGame using #FoodSceneBlend on Twitter to let us know which scene in movie history that is primarily focused on cuisine is your favorite.
