It's the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny....again! Lego Batman has Will Arnett's arrogant and conceited Caped Crusader confronted with his greatest fear - and a host of villains from too many movie franchises to count.
Stevie and Emmet discuss the Lego movie series and its blending of marketing and playfulness, the question of how Batman became dark and broody in the first place - and the endless cameos that will have long-term Bat-fans pleasantly surprised.
In A World....where Stevie and Emmet talk trailers: the good, the bad, and the upcoming.
How does studios target certain audiences to sell a picture? What about a movie that is in trouble - can a trailer make the difference in earning primo box office? What about trailers that are nothing like the finished film?
We talk some of our favourites from over the year such as Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, Inherent Vice, Watchmen; how the rabidly uncommericial Coen Brothers films have been poorly served by previews for The Big Lebowski, A Serious Man, Hail Caesar!; and we discuss the upcoming Wonder Woman and Edgar Wright's Baby Driver.
As the man said, "L, L, L, you ring my bell."
Stevie and Emmet first discuss the latest X-Men movie, Logan (not for kids, okay), a fitting last stand for Hugh Jackman and Wolverine.
Then, they chat Loving, the civil rights story of Richard and Mildred Loving (played by Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga).
Rounding out this week's chat is FX's Legion, again with the X-Men, and the small screen awesomeness and WTF going on there. The colours! So pretty!
