This week on the InSession Film Podcast, Dan Clark from Talking In Circles joins us as we review the crazy acid-trip-like experience that was Lucy, starring Scarlett Johansson and Morgan Freeman, which was a bit different than we bargained for. Going off of that, since we did expect something different based off of the trailers for the film, we discussed our Top 3 Mis-Marketed Movies and as usual we finish off the show with Movies We’ve Seen This Week. Also, we probably have some of the best outtakes we’ve ever had on the show at the very end.
Dan is back on the show and as always he’s a fantastic guest and we would highly recommend his show. Also be on the lookout for this week’s Bonus Content where Blake and JD discuss some of the fun news that came out of San Diego Comic Con over the last week. For our latest Extra Film, we discussed Begin Again and Enemy (again), so be sure to check that out as well.
Anyway, check it out and let us know what you think in the comment section below. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting our podcast!
– Lucy Movie Review (5:09)
– Top 3 Mis-Marketed Movies (31:49)
While it does come down to different criteria and expectations, every year we see films that are released that do not match up to the trailers that sold the movie. Lucy is a great example of that, at least for us, however there are a lot of other films that fit this mold and depending on how you like the trailers, depends if that’s a good thing or not. For this Top 3, we didn’t necessarily look at whether it’s a good thing or not but rather we focused on the mis-selling of the film. That being said, what would be your Top 3?
