We are BACK, ladies and gentlemen! We did drop the bloopers episode last week while I was sunning myself down in beautiful Punta Cana, but this will be my first official episode recording as a married man. It was a great wedding and reception and a really relaxing honeymoon, and we take a few moments to discuss some of the finer points of the last week and a half right at the top of the show this week before we jump into the meat of this week's episode.
Civil War is upon us! With Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice now behind us and extremely divisive, we turn our attention to the much-better-received Captain America: Civil War. We are especially outspoken critics of the Marvel formula, especially myself- did this film break the Marvel mold? Can a Marvel film impress me enough to get a rating above a "pretty decent" 7/10? You'll have to listen to find out! We'll also look back to two weeks ago and our Civil War wish lists, and see if we got what we wished for before we had a chance to see the film.
This week, we're also looking to the future of Epic Film Guys, particularly to new content and a new contest! Would you like to win a $25 AMC theaters gift card? All you need to do is listen to the Epic Film Guys podcast! More details to come, but your first chance to will will be our Thursday, June 2nd episode. Stay tuned!
Finally this week in Epic Previews, we'll be dissecting some new trailers (or at least new to us, since I've been away). We're taking a look at the first official trailer for the video game adaptation Assassin's Creed, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. We'll also be reviewing The Accountant, starring Ben Affleck, J.K. Simmons, Anna Kendrick, John Lithgow, and Jeffrey Tambor, and looking at the creepy teaser for The Woods, the new horror thriller from director Adam Wingard being hailed as one of the scariest movies ever made.
