List: Top 3 Ensemble Cast Movies

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed the ninth film in the X-Men film series, X-Men: Apocalypse. It seems these days that every superhero movie lends itself to great ensemble casts and Apocalypse was no different. Using that as our inspiration, we talked about some of the best movies to featured great ensemble casts. Many films over the years have had an amazing cast list, and while not all films have utilized those casts well, some have done so spectacularly.

On that note, what ensemble cast movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:
