Episode #114: All About Ava

Hosted by Selina Wilken, Pamela Gocobachi

September 19, 2016

Hype Podcast reviews the latest movies including Bridget Jones’ Baby and Sully, previews fall TV series Queen Sugar and Pitch, and breaks down the latest entertainment news.

It’s Selina and Pam this week keeping you up-to-date on everything pop culture! And because it’s Selina and Pam, we of course continue our Merlin obsession (and #feud with the new procedural Camelot) and pitch our own version of an Arthurian TV series.

How We Hype:
– Selina saw Bridget Jones’ Baby, best movie of all time (despite a small issue)
– Pam recs Sully and Hello My Name is Doris.

News:
– We’re loving the Moana trailer
– And yes, the Fifty Shades Darker trailer was good too
– Storm Reid, the girl with the coolest name in the world, lands the lead role in Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time
Fox is developing a Stan Lee movie. Will it be an action film? Why is it not being done by Marvel?!
Pacific Rim 2 has found its female lead, and we discover something surprising about John Boyega
– Evangeline Lilly and Adam Scott are teaming up for an Antichrist comedy (!)
– Michael Giacchino replaces Alexandre Desplat as Rogue One composer
– A Throne of Glass TV series is in development, which is apparently a very good thing
– Updates on the Star Wars and Star Trek TV series
– Lady Gaga announces Joanna album, and is in talks to helm the Super Bowl half time show.

TV Show of the Week:
– Pam’s pick is Pitch
– Selina’s is Queen Sugar
– …And we’ve got our Merlin-by-the-Sea procedural series to break in, too!
