Ready or Not, Here Comes Summer

By  · Published on April 14th, 2017

Summer movie season begins this week. One Perfect Pod digs in with a Fast and Furious summer movie preview.

Look out your window. Does it look like summer? It might. It might not. Weather is weird these days. But while we can’t predict where climate change will take our outdoor plans next, we do know that Summer Movie Season is here and ready to rev up its engine with the release of The Fate of the Furious.

With Summer Movie Season coming in hot (and early) this weekend, we’re taking the long view on One Perfect Pod, going through the most exciting, interesting, and potentially disastrous summer movies. First, we talk to /Film boss Peter Sciretta about CinemaCon, summer box office, and the big blockbusters that await us this year. Then we turn to Film School Rejects contributor Jamie Righetti to talk about the smaller, more serious counter-programming that will also be hitting theaters.

Get ready, because summer is here…
