  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: King Arthur gets Guy Ritchie'd, Snatched w/ Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn and Lowriders.

  • BLADERUNNER 2049: Beautifully shot, this sequel to 1982's Bladerunner is starting to look incredible.

What TV Series have lasted longer than they should?; Star Wars Machete modified; Weekend Box Office: GOTG 2, Chuck; The Dark Tower; The Defenders; The Housemaid's Tale; House of Cards; The Outlaw King; Godzilla vs. King Kong; Devito & Goldblum; Gears of War movie; The Happytime Murders

  • WHAT TV SERIES WENT ON LONGER THAN IT SHOULD HAVE? It seems to be a common occurrence. A show has a great season or two and then decides to keep pushing the show to a much longer run than needed.

  • STAR WARS MACHETE - MODIFIED: By now a lot of people are aware of the "Machete" method of watching Star Wars, as IV, V, II, III, VI. However, DT has come up with a whole new list.

  • WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Guardians of the Galaxy 2 looks dominate and Ryan provides a spoiler-free review. Chuck also looks very interesting, telling the true origin story of Rocky.

  • THE DARK TOWER: We'll break down the trailer, speculate as to where it sits in relation to the books and fill you in on some Easter Eggs hidden within it.

  • THE DEFENDERS: All four of Marvel's Netflix superheros are in action together for the first time.

  • THE HANDMAID'S TALE: Set in a not-so-distant, dystopian future, this series deals with some very heavy topics. However, the acting and writing is truly phenomenal.

  • HOUSE OF CARDS SEASON 5: This was the precipice for our overall question today. We'll debate whether a Season 5 of House of Cards was necessary. (or 3...or 4...)

  • THE OUTLAW KING: Fans of historical biopics will be excited to see this story of Robert the Bruce of Scotland come to life. Chris Pine and Ben Foster are also set to star.

  • GODZILLA VS. KING KONG: We finally have a date and schedule for the release of the next movies, culminating in the epic showdown between these two monsters.

  • DEVITO & GOLDBLUM: These two legends are teaming up for a future comedy series from Amazon and we could not be more excited.

  • GEARS OF WAR MOVIE: The person behind writing the next 4 sequels to Avatar, will be penning the script for Gears of War. Do we need another video game movie?

  • THE HAPPYTIME MURDERS: Melissa McCarthy, Jim Henson Studios, Muppets, the seedy underbelly of LA and series of puppet murders. Nothing more needs to be said, except we're ready to watch.
