Episode 46: Ant Man and the Wasp, Christine, and a Friday the 13th Reboot?

It’s still October so that means the month of horror continues. In this episode of the podcast Hemant talks about some news including the possibility of LeBron James’ production company Springhill Entertainment rebooting the Friday the 13th movie franchise.

And speaking of exciting, Hemant filled out a survey from Landmark Cinemas and all signs are pointing to a new premium theater making its way into Saskatoon. This is purely speculation, but the questions in the survey seemed to suggest that.

Another edition of From the Treadmill is next where he revisits Star Wars: The Last Jedi over the course of three runs. Hemant thinks he has finally landed on an opinion of the latest film in the Skywalker story.

It’s then on to the feature reviews for the week including the newest Marvel film to hit bluray, Ant Man and the Wasp. The episode wraps up with Christine, another John Carpenter film from 1983 about a demonic Pontiac Fury.
