The MovieFilm Podcast: 20 Years of Speed

Posted: Updated:
Print Article
This week we celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of the greatest action thrillers of all time, the Keanu Reeves-Sandra Bullock starrer Speed. But while we take a wistful look back at Jan de Bont's bus-gone-wild thriller, we also talk up brand-spankin' new releases like Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel and the latest sequel for the Muppets, and we unpack some of the latest headlines out of Hollywood, including word that Captain America 3 and Batman vs. Superman are set for a superhero showdown on the same opening weekend, possible directors for the long-gestating Ghostbusters 3, and the actor that David Fincher really wants to play Steve Jobs in his upcoming biopic about the Apple founder. All that, plus the usual Listener Letters, and Speed-related movie quiz to wrap things up. You can either stream it below, or listen at iTunes or Stitcher (make sure to leave us a review!). Also, you can "like" our Facebook page or e-mail MovieFilmPodcast@gmail.com to let us know how we're doing!
