Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard joins the show this week! We discuss how they built scenes surrounding two CGI characters, why Kong is so effective for an audience emotionally and we even touch on some of his previous work in established franchises like Blair Witch and Death Note. You know we couldn’t have the director of the upcoming Face/Off sequel on without asking him about it, and he gave us a massive hint at where they’re headed with it.
In rare fashion, we had some major news break during the episode rather than after. Black Widow and pretty much the rest of Disney’s remaining 2021 slate has shifted. We discuss Warner Media confirming that Zack Snyder’s Justice League will be his last in what they now consider to be a completed trilogy.
This week’s BlendGame looks at the work of Antoine Fuqua. Next week, we celebrate the incredible Kate Winslet, and try to narrow down our favorite performances from her staggering career. Send in your pick on Twitter using #KateWinsletBlend.
