We know we just gave you our A24 Trailerspective, but since this is our 24th episode and Woman Walks Ahead moved us on so many levels we thought, why not another one from A24.  Molly's Game was our first podcast and now we have Jessica Chastain in another powerful female lead role.  Sam Rockwell can add his Academy Award Winning credentials to this one to boost the casting cred!

Here is the portrait of Sitting Bull on which this movie is based. 

Venom | Sony Pictures Ent | Trailer drop 04.23.2018 | Release date 10.05.2018

In one day the Venom trailer amassed 14 million views on the official site and anywhere from 1 million to 10 million across other youtube channels. Jimmy will probably pass on this movie while Ted is giddy with excitement, to say the least, when he learned they cast Tom Hardy.

A Kid Like Jake | IFC Films | Trailer drop 04.13.2018 | Release date 07.08.2018

Our third trailer for this week is a true story about A Kid Like Jake.  After repeated viewing, this trailer, and subsequent movie, felt more like it is telling a story of a modern struggle in parenting (a recurring theme TJP seems to be visiting regularly).  This brings the star talent you've come to expect within much different roles.  Jim Parsons and Claire Danes give a refreshing performance reminding casting directors they both have a range beyond what they are known for. 

Lastly, as Jim and Ted go long on their feelings about formalized schooling. Here is Ted's book recommendation, My Ishmael by Daniel Quinn and here is Jimmy's favorite TED Talk (besides his weekly talk with Ted).

With the success of Lady Bird and The Disaster Artist A24 has carved a special niche for itself with some interesting 2018 films spanning and hybridizing many genres. This week Jim and Ted take a look at Under the Silver Lake, First Reformed and How to Talk to Girls at Parties.

You get a bonus review this week.
