An update on Game of Thrones S7E5 is followed by Nick & Andy running through some Quick Hits such as Thor: Ragnarok, Apple committing to original content, Netflix is in talks with Disney, and Val Kilmer lets it out that Kurt Russell actually directed TOMBSTONE.
Over in The Lobby, we discuss the phenomenon of reshoots, how they differ from normal pickups, and whether or not productions are now just using them as a crutch. Andy gives his position on Set Safety and accidents on-set from his first-person perspective as a 1st Asst Director in charge of it, whether or not any negligence was involved, and we discuss why we’re hearing about them more often lately.
The first US-crossing total solar eclipse in 100 years is happening on Aug 21st, and you should NOT look at it! (Srsly, don’t. It’ll burn a ring into your retinas…). For the Lightning Round this week, we team up to do something special about the sun and the moon!
This and much, much more! Enjoy!
