OTB Movie Podcast 12: Blue Podcast
Jez Sands and Jamie Steiner are joined by Zak Klein to pick apart this week’s movie news, trailers and releases.
We watch Hilary Swank try to get Sam Rockwell out of jail in Conviction, follow Seth Rogen and Michel Gondry’s attempt to bring The Green Hornet to the big screen, gush lovingly over Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams’s astounding new film Blue Valentine and try to work out if Travellers is merely rubbish or needs to purged from everyone’s collective memories.
00.11 – The Rain City Superheroes – real life idiots dressed as superheroes are taking to the streets of Seattle. Jamie’s bid to be a supervillain.
03.26 – Charlize Theron leaves Clint Eastwood’s J Edgar and is rumoured to join the Alien prequel.
09.02 – Ivan Reitman says that all Ghostbusters 3 rumours aren’t true but the new script might be the best ever. We’re more than a little doubtful.
