On the June 20, 2019 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by /Film senior writer Ben Pearson and writer Chris Evangelista to discuss the latest film and tv news, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Child’s Play, Halloween, Bad Trip, Bill & Ted Face The Music, and Keanu Reeves in the MCU.
Feedback: In a previous episode Peter asked if there has ever been a really good prequel movie:
- Peter from Stockholm, Sweden writes in “Hi, I can't believe no one mentioned the prequel to the 1982 The Thing, the 2011 The Thing. It is my duty as a citizen of the movie universe to make you aware of this awesome prequel that ends right where the 1982 The Thing begins. Thank you for your hard work and dedication. I really appreciate /Film podcast and website.”
