We start the week talking about some new trailers (Doctor Strange, Jason Bourne, Magnificent Seven, The Girl on the Train, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Independence Day: Resurgence); you can tell we're really "excited" about all these movies because we each use that word about ten times a piece while describing our reactions to the trailers (3:50). We the talk about the upcoming Flash movie and the ongoing Flash tv show (15:28) before briefly touching on the upcoming Punisher tv series from Netflix (18:29).
