Biff Bam Pop! presents The GAR! Podcast, the Glenn Walker and Ray Cornwall weekly podcast where they talk unrehearsed about whatever happens to come to mind. It’s a nerd exploration of a nerd world. This week we continue to fill the Mount Rushmore of Crazy Chicks, do one for Crazy Guys, talk about the David Goyer controversy, and Ray tests me on my Superman and Avengers comics knowledge. More after the jump.
This weekend sees the release of my most anticipated film of the summer, and if things go as planned, it will score a huge opening. Here’s my prediction:
X-Men: Days of Future Past marks the return of Bryan Singer to the X-fold director’s chair, and he brings with him the actors he first cast in the first two X-Men films. The comic book story that this film is based on is an epic story of time travel, as mutants struggle to prevent a Judgement Day-like event. Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender, Ian McKellen, James McAvoy, Patrick Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Ellen Page, Shawn Ashmore – this combination of timelines and casts is unlike anything done before, and that includes The Avengers. Hype is huge and reviews are stellar, which is going to translate to an awesome debut for the film. Look for a first place showing with $120 million.
