IS STAR WARS EPISODE 9 IN A ROUGH SPOT?

Friends! Were you aware that every day we do a live talk show talking all about the day’s biggest pop culture and entertainment stories? Well we do!

On today’s show, host Jessica Chobot welcomed Mothership writer and newly minted recording artist Amy Vorpahl and Nerdist’s very own social media manager/Teen Beat reporter Michelle Buchman to talk down E3’s indie games, Colin Trevorrow‘s critically disliked new movie, and Danny Elfman doing the score for another big comic book movie. It’s a heck of a lot to get through, but we’re champions, so we managed it!

First up was E3 2017. We’ve talked about the big games from the big developers; now it’s time to talk about the indies! The gang really liked Cuphead and Sea of Thieves but weren’t super jazzed about A Way Out.

Next up, things aren’t looking great for Star Wars: Episode IXat least, if the reviews for director Colin Trevorrow’s latest are any indication. Jurassic World heavily split audiences, but Trevorrow’s latest movie, The Book of Henry, garnered pretty universally negative reviews following its premiere at Los Angeles Film Festival on Wednesday. Sooooo naturally, we’re a bit worried.

And finally, perhaps the greatest film composer who isn’t John Williams or Ennio Morricone, Danny Elfman, is returning to the Bat-sphere to write the music for the upcoming Justice League movie. Our panelists talk about their favorite film scores, and what the music choice might mean for the movie.

You wanna watch the show live next time? Head to Nerdist’s YouTube and Alpha every weekday at 1:00pm PST and join in the ridiculous fun! And chime in with your own thoughts on the topics above in the comments below!
