TGB Episode 88: Winter is Coming (Guest: Screenwriter Gary Whitta)
by Tim Buel
December 15, 2011
On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim & Jeremy are joined by screenwriter (The Book of Eli, After Earth) and Tested.com podcaster Gary Whitta to discuss their latest Picks of the Week, new DVD & Blu-Ray releases, talk about new trailers for Barry Sonnenfeld's Men In Black 3 and Jon M. Chu's G.I. Joe: Retaliation and much more. The topic of the night was a discussion on the winter blockbuster season in honor of so many movies hitting theaters soon. The guys (joined by FS.net's own Alex) talk over theories on why this blockbuster season exists and what the future may hold for upcoming tentpole releases.
The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records!
