On the March 22, 2018 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by Weekend Editor Brad Oman, senior writer Ben Pearson and writer Chris Evangelista to talk about Steven Spielberg, Cryptocurrency movie funding, Meltdown Comics, 4DX x ScreenX, Avengers 4, and Men in Black. And in The Mailbag, we answer a question about the future of physical movie media.

Meltdown Comics is Closing, but Will Remain a Bastion of Pop Culture and Comedy

4DX to Add Projection Screens on the Walls to Make Going to the Movies Even Worse

Chris Evans is Officially Leaving Marvel After ‘Avengers 4’

‘Men in Black’ Reboot Reteams ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Warrior Tessa Thompson with Chris Hemsworth

 

In the Mailbag: Mark Bothwell from London writes in:

“I am a guy who has a huge collection of movies on Blu-ray, and has to-date shunned digital downloads - although obviously I stream films when convenient. My question is how long do you think the studios will remain committed to producing physical media? Are they in a hurry to make us all use only digital, or does having both suit them? My concern is that when they discs stop being manufactured then the players will stop being updated/improved, too - and then my library will be on borrowed time. I live in the UK and we don’t have Movies Anywhere to make a digital collection a coherent alternative, or a credible service to digitise already owned discs.  Just wondered what you guys thought, or knew, of the studios’ intentions long term.”

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Early Buzz: First It’s Boring, Then It’s Totally Bonkers With Mixed Results

 

In the Mailbag: Don E writes in last week:

“Today was the second time I heard one of your critics talk about a movie that they haven’t seen and never will. The first being Bright on Netflix because you didn’t want to contribute to the Netflix numbers that have watched the film. And the second being the original Fantastic Beasts which Ben said that he didn’t see because he thought the trailers looked cheesy. I realize you can’t see every movie that comes out, there’s just not enough time to do so, but both of those movies are certainly not the worst or obscure movies out there. Isn’t it your whole job to criticize movies? That can’t be done if you don’t see them. I mean if it sucks walk out of the theater or turn of the tv but at least give it a try. It’s very puzzling to me that you guys judge stuff without seeing it. I love your show and hope you will address this issue thanks for your time.
