 You’ve waited since the crowing of our first Fantasy Filmball winner for your shot at redemption, here it is!  Box Office Bash 2013 is upon us!  Ryan and Dave complicate what should have been a very straightforward process of selecting 5 movies each to compete head-to-head, while listeners submitted their top 5 picks to go head-to-head-to-head-to-head, etc.
What film went first overall, which film(s) made all the lists, who fell in the draft?  Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire are dying to know.  Find out with them!

Thanks to The Champions of All Time for the theme music. It comes from the song “Home” off the CD/DVD Bridges Burned/Lessons Learned.

And a BIG thanks to Morgan Jim Cole for our fly, new logo.

Morgan, I still like our old fly logo.  One is silver, the other gold.

Quality over quantity on news stories this week as the boys discuss, in great detail, whether Ed Helms should drop the F-bomb on vacation, if Zack Snyder should join the Justice League and if Wal-Mart’s plan to use Superman to take over the movie world will work.  Dave professes his love for Lee Pace and Ratchet & Clank.  Ryan tells you what he would give Zach Braff money for on Kickstarter and his theory of how Sly picked his Expendables 3 director.  Good news, we just got green-lit for another episode.

Quite a varied group of trailers this week from the mighty Thor to teenage jewelry thieves in The Bling Ring, The East’s eco-terrorists, Judy Blume’s Tiger Eyes, Jess Weixler gives away Free Samples to Jessie Eisenberg, mighty giant robots patrolling the Pacific Rim and a mustached Paul Rudd painting road lines with Prince Avalanche.

Last call for your submissions for our Box Office Bash summer box office contest.  The draft episode is coming up at the end of the week.  Send your top 5 picks to moviesonup@gmail.com.

What About Bad Summer Vacations

In honor of the summer vacations I never went on as a kid, and mostly due to this summers crop of movies featuring vacations gone wrong, Dave and I give you the 5 gone-wrongiest vacations of all time.  Oddly enough, an ill-fated trip to Walley World didn’t make either of our lists.

In case you missed our news episode earlier in the week, and would be wondering about the Oblivion review reference I make here, check that on out.  Also, if you’re feeling summery check out our summer preview and my companion blog.

This week, Ryan and Dave discuss the latest actor ready to put on The Crow makeup, Cameron Diaz comedies, the future of Chadwick Boseman, the weekly David Lowery news update, an interesting new Ryan Reynolds / Anna Kendrick movie, and how weird it is that they’re both interested in the planned Weird Science remake.

Then they tackle a varied group of trailers, starting with the new Man Of Steel spot, and including A Teacher, Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes, The Hunt, Man Of Tai Chi, and RIPD in Black.

Throw in the Box Office results, this week’s new releases, and a couple Watch This suggestions and you have the formula for this week’s news episode.

When I was a youngster, I remember vividly the writing prompts given to me on the first day of school.  What did you do on summer vacation?  When putting together our Summer Preview Episode, I think I began to have some grade school flashbacks.  It’s not quite summer, and it’s sure not fall-but I thought I’d share with you what we all will learn from this year’s crop of summer movies.
