Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

"It always fits eventually."

Here’s a gift for the whole family from The Film Board’s clan to yours – The thugs went out and saw our first official show-sanctioned animated film this week, Spiderman: Into the Spider-Verse. It’s a break from what we usually do on our monthly show and the movie itself is a bit of a break from what you might expect in animation as well as what comic book movies and movies with Marvel properties have become in the industry. This movie is very different.

Listen to this show to hear how those differences sit with Tommy, Andy, Steve, Pete and JJ. This movie is generating an interesting amount of early buzz and heats up the holiday box office competition for a season that is without a Star Wars entry for the first time in a number of years. Can an animated movie win the Holiday season? Should it? Come get our take with the Film Board here.
