Well, I may have been a tad lapse in getting the last Week in Film show up, but it’s now here. Not only that, this is a double post of sorts, with both last week’s and this week’s episodes on offer. It’s also worth noting that the previous episode to this pair was cancelled due to the problems of man flu (it’s totally worse than childbirth, I’m telling you!). The first episode, air date of 19th December was a regular episode, whilst the next episode, which is actually airing live as I type this post, is a Christmas special looking back at my personal Top 10 films of 2014 (I may, just may, have forgotten about The Wolf of Wall Street – totally my bad!). Anyways, here’s the two episodes for your aural pleasure.
Week in Film #41 (air date – 19th December)
Chatting Regarding: There’s been talks of Spider-Man joining the cinematic Avengers; James Gunn plays down a Guardians of the Galaxy/Avengers crossover; Warner Brothers’ Suicide Squad casts its Amanda Waller; frontrunners emerge to direct Star Trek 3; Kong: Skull Island gets a release date and adds J.K. Simmons; Rebel Wilson has had talks to join all-female Ghostbusters; SEGA to adapt video games to movies, including Altered Beast and Streets of Rage; the controversy surrounding The Interview and Sony being hacked; a Beetlejuice sequel is now closer than ever; The Craft could see a remake; Mrs. Voorhees to appear in new Friday the 13th; and the usual UK box office report, upcoming cinema releases, upcoming home releases and much, much more.
Songs From: Dick Dale (Pulp Fiction), Velvet Underground (Flight), Daft Punk (TRON: Legacy), Bill Conti (Rocky), Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel (Best), and Fleetwood Mac (just because…).
Week in Film #42 – Christmas Special! (air date – 26th December)
Chatting Regarding: My personal favourite Top 10 films of 2014, be them cinema releases or straight-to-DVD goodness. I also have a brief look ahead to what’s coming out in 2015 (although criminally running out of time when it comes to Star Wars: Episode VII).
Songs From: Jerry Goldsmith (Gremlins), Kermit the Frog (Muppets Christmas Carol), John Cafferty (Rocky IV), John Williams (Home Alone), Danny Elfman (Batman Returns), and Redbone (Guardians of the Galaxy).
