The MovieFilm Podcast: X-Men , A Million Ways to Die , and Maleficent

For this week's episode, Brian and I start things off with my exclusive interview with director Gillian Robespierre about her endearing new romantic-comedy Obvious Child, starring Jenny Slate. We then transition to the latest round of headlines, including the recent movement on Marvel Studios' upcoming Ant-Man adaptation, with writer/director Edgar Wright begging off the diminutive hero. We then transition to the latest news on Star Wars: Episode VII, as well as director Colin Trevorrow's approach to bringing Jurassic World to the screen.

After that, we dive in to a whole batch of new releases, with spoiler-filled conversations on X-Men: Days of Future Past, Seth MacFarlane's A Million Ways to Die in the West, the Angelina Jolie starrer Maleficent, and Tom Cruise's new sci-fi epic Edge of Tomorrow. That's a whole lot to listen to, so get started via the embed below, or by downloading or stream at iTunes or Stitcher.
