There are a number of highly anticipated movies coming to theaters in the next few weeks. We know it has felt like a drought – and Captain Marvel might not have been the movie y’all have been waiting for – but the ReelBlend guys are here to get your hopes up. They are teasing the fact that they managed to see both Jordan Peele’s Us and the DC origin story for Shazam! What did they think? Play this week’s episode and find out!

Sean also went to Austin, Texas this week for SXSW 2019. He caught up with a few great movies, but more importantly, met some INCREDIBLE ReelBlend listeners who swung by for a mini Texas meetup!

Jordan Peele’s new movie, Us, opened the fest. Then Kevin caught up with it days later at the movie’s L.A. junket. They won’t spoil it for Jake and Gabe, so they rave about it without giving away details. Jake also sees Shazam!, and interviewed Zachary Levi. Listen to his fun stories.

Speaking of interviews, this week on ReelBlend, the guys speak with Captive State director Rupert Wyatt about his post-apocalyptic, futuristic drama. The film is set during an alien invasion, but it focuses on the human rebellion that chooses to fight back against our new oppressors. It’s a great and informative conversation about Captive State, and filmmaking, in general.

The Blend Game this week was one of the toughest. The guys played #ShotBlend, where they picked their all-time favorite shots of all time. Not scenes. Shots. It’s impossible.
