This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we dust off our mutant powers as we discuss the 9th film in the X-Men film series, X-Men Apocalypse. Also, given the great ensemble cast that the film has, we decided to talk about our favorite ensemble cast movies and finally, we top off the show with another edition of What Are the Chances?

No guest this week Brendan and JD have a lot of fun holding down the fort and talking about how fun the X-Men universe has been, despite it’s flaws. Also, forgive JD for salivating over the new trailer for Beauty and the Beast, it is one of his favorite animated films of all-time.

On that note, check out the show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and thanks for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!
