It’s Star Wars all the way down. It’s in the box office. It’s online. It’s everywhere. Andy’s seen it, but doesn’t spoil, promise. We’ve got a full house of hijack trailers this week and a thoroughly thuggish list of movies with great henchmen!

Tommy makes his first appearance on the SatMat! Pete’s in Seattle with SO MANY PODCASTERS at the first ever PodCon! Plus … Andy and Steve! We’ve got FOUR great trailers to talk about — or maybe THREE great trailers plus Cameron’s new one. And a list of great foreign films that have been made into completely lame American remakes! Thanks for your support everybody.

Andy and Steve run the Matinée this morning and take up the dearth of great trailers, even in the face of a very busy opening weekend for smaller films (like Ladybird!). They have some advice for how you might spend your weekend, and some questions about The Disaster Artist. Plus, two great trailers that aren’t Infinity War and a list of films with puppets that will stock your watchlist for the next week!

A touch on the quiet side as we’re fully-baked post US Thanksgiving holiday. We’re talking about Coco, Justice League and Henry’s mustache, and Andy’s incredible 9-hour mushrooms. Plus, two great trailers and a list of six excellent anthology movies you can use this weekend to while away the holiday hours!

Andy saw Justice League and says his feelings weren’t as hurt as he expected them to be. We talk about all that, plus the truly ridiculous promotional design of the film. We’ve got two killer trailers, and an equally brutal list of cold case movies that may — or may not — bend the rules beyond the standard. Plus: Andy has his own cold case to contend with.

Andy saw Thor: Ragnarok and we both love it, so there. But what about those M-16s? Too much of a change from fantasy violence? Asgard’s in your heart, baby. Kevin Spacey is in way more movies than you ever knew, but he’s been facially replaced in all of them. We’ve got some terrific trailers, and hope for an actor by the name of Streep Hanks. Or maybe a wrestler. A wrestler might be better.

Thor: Ragnarok dominates the box office this weekend kicking off what might just be a return to holiday profit splendor. Andy and Steven haven’t seen it yet. But they’ve got great trailers, with a Red Band Rule, and a list of stamp movies that will surprise you… because it turns out there are good movies about stamps, and you didn’t know it.

Yeah, technology and schedule conspired to delay the Saturday Matinée this weekend. Hope you still have some dishes left to do. If it looks like Arizona, it was shot in New Mexico. Steve is trying to make his daughter patient zero in the Raw veterinary school controversy. Also, he is very unhappy. We’ve got a dash of Khan follow-up. Andy talks box office, Geostorm, Boo 2, and making it cheap.

Harvey Weinstein shot himself in the foot with an egomaniacal sexually predatory torpedo. Yes, we talk about the status of the Weinstein company. But it’s not all heavy, we promise. We talk Blade Runner 2049 and how people should see it before it leaves the theater. Box office is a bit dry this week and even though it is still performing, Happy Death Day is on track to lead the week. Steve wins the Red-Band-Rule lottery and we’ve got nine movies that showcase a rebooted character that’s worth seeing!
