This week Rob and Geoff start by recapping the highs and lows from this year's Comicon, including the surprisingly good KONG: SKULL ISLAND trailer, the incredibly dope BLACK PANTHER cast unveiling, and the glory that is the bearded Batman. Then TIFF's Acting Head of Programming, Michael Lerman, drops buy to talk with Rob about this year's festivaal slate. Michael offers his take on some of the most anticipated films in this year's festival (Damien Chazelle's LA LA LAND, Feng Xiaogang's I AM NOT MADAME BOVARY, and Jeff Nichols' LOVING), and points to some excellent movies from new directors (Onur Tukel's CATFIGHT, Vikram Ghandi's BARRY, and Katherine Dieckmann's STRANGE WEATHER). The two also celebrate the unlikely union of Jonathan Demme and Justin Timberlake, and discuss who they would pick 1st overall in a 'Concert Film' fantasy draft.
