The MovieFilm Podcast: Talking Godzilla! Plus Jon Favreau on Chef

05/20/2014 11:42 am ET | Updated Jul 20, 2014

We start this week's show off with my interview with Chef writer/director/star Jon Favreau, who talks not only about his new film but also shares his thoughts on the current state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after he pretty much kicked it into gear with Iron Man. After that, Brian and I (still no Sean this week!) are joined by a special guest: comedian Hasan Minhaj (MTV's Failosophy), who talks up his new project, the globe-spanning doc Standup Planet, and joins us as we discuss Viggo Mortensen's unvarnished take on Peter Jackson and the Lord of the Rings films, the Harry Potter spin-off/prequel Alfonso Cuaron is currently circling, plus Zach Snyder's surprise reveal of Ben Affleck in his Batman finest for the upcoming Batman vs Superman, and why 2011's Green Lantern flick didn't work (and why we hope the upcoming CW show The Flash will). After that, it's onto the monster in the room! Join us for a spoiler-rific discussion of Gareth Edward's take on the king of the monsters, Godzilla. Opinions are actively split on this one so listen in to hear what the guys have to say. Give it a listen via the embed below, or download or stream at iTunes or Stitcher.
