Episode 56: Catching That Early Buzz

This episode brings us to the midpoint of the summer box office and the news isn’t good for a number of films (and studios.) After that though, Sergio Mims returns to bring everyone more stories and new Blu-rays. He also talks with Erik Childress about how early buzz can affect one’s view of a motion picture ranging from Donnie Darko to La La Land and how occasionally a fresh perspective can alter one’s opinion.
