July 25, 2013

The Golden Briefcase - James Wan

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by FilmSchoolReject's and's own Brian Salisbury to go through their latest picks of the week, the newest DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for DreamWorks Animation's How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Jeff Bridges' Seventh Son and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on Australian director James Wan, in honor of his latest horror film The Conjuring now playing in theaters. The guys go over Wan's filmography, his his style and evolution and how well he'll transition into the mainstream with Fast Seven next. Listen in!

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.

Wasn't he always mainstream though? Anyways, loved this episode! Also one of my favorite contemporary horror directors.
