Noomi Rapace is OUT of the Prometheus sequel, which is now titled Alien: Covenant. This film has certainly stumbled quite a bit on its journey to being the sequel to the Alien prequel, but is this just another reason that this film shouldn't be made? Nick and Justin will discuss the ongoing woes of the Alien franchise. Justin also sounds off about the now-canceled Friday the 13th reboot, and as you can imagine, he is one unhappy horror fan.
Last week, Emily from the Classy Little Podcast joined us to mediate our fan Q&A, but there were so many great questions and we didn't want to leave anyone out. This week, sit back and enjoy part two of our Q&A, featuring: an epic rant, favorite chick flicks, and we discuss Darth Vader's place in the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One. All that, and who would play the Epic Film Guys in a movie about us? Once again we'd like to thank Emily of the Classy Little Podcast for mediating the event for us.
This week in the Epic Previews segment, we'll be taking a look at the trailer for Why Bother: The Movie AKA Cabin Fever, the remake of Eli Roth's 2002's horror film that is being produced by Roth. Is it too soon for this remake? Justin sounds off! We also took a look at the red band trailer for Green Room, starring Patrick Stewart, Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, and Alia Shawkat.
The guys had a chance to check out the Oscar-nominated Room, and Epic Film Guy Nick was able to see Saoirse Ronan's Brooklyn this past week. We've got mini-reviews of both films here, and we are leading up to the 88th Academy Awards at the end of the month. Look for us to review those films we haven't seen- and to look back on those we have- before the big show.
To tie into the Academy Awards, we're happy to launch our brand new February challenge! This month we're doing our Oscar winner challenge. Ten best picture winners that you haven't seen; that's all you have to do! Let us know what you've watched and we'll compile all of the films you're watching over at http://www.epicfilmguys.com.
That's right, I said www.epicfilmguys.com!! We officially have a website! In the coming weeks and months we'll be focusing more and more attention over on the website, with some new graphics and the EFG store. For now, head over to the page (still under construction) and check out the new face of the Epic Film Guys!
