Lots of fun speculation and conjecture on this week’s episode of GeekScholars Movie News, as the show kicks off with a round of ‘Never Tell Me the Odds!’. Each of the hosts weigh in on recent film rumors, giving their predictions on the probability that:
Another Back to the Future movie gets made
Another Jaws movie gets made
Daniel Craig plays James Bond at least one more time
Chris Evans continues to play Captain America after The Infinity War: Part II
Iron Giant 2 gets a green-light
A Mega Man film makes it to the big screen
The GeekScholars close out the show with a review of the exceptional trailer for The Danish Girl.
This week on GeekScholars Movie News, presented by Eclipse Magazine, we our latest installment of the Casting Competition Challenge where we attempt to tackle the classic, Back to the Future. Who would you cast as Marty, Doc, and Lorainne in the modern era, hmm?
After that we’ve got a duo of preview reviews. First, we were all suprisingly impressed at the trailer for comedic Magic Mike about the world of male exotic dancing. Then listen to the complete lack of consensus as we analyze the preview for David Cronenberg’s latest warped tale, Cosmopolis.
As always we close out with some fun quickies making the rounds as well as our weekend preview.
Enjoy the goodness right here:

I’m not a big fan of the year end list or doing Holiday Guides, they are a lot of trouble to write and it’s always tough to come up with that “definitive” list. I say this every year, but do it anyway. Like this year’s movies, there wasn’t much on the Blu-ray front that tickled my fancy this year, so my list doesn’t have as much variety to it as it usually does. This list also doubles as my Top Blu-ray/DVD Picks of 2010.
I thought I’d start the show with my favorite movie of 2010, Kick-Ass is a movie that deserves some Oscar buzz, but won’t get any. I don’t know why this movie didn’t get much box office loving, it’s truly a masterpiece of carnage, destruction, and it’s genuinely funny. It’s worth getting for Chloe Moretz amazing performance as Hit Girl – if she doesn’t get some award consideration for best actress this year, there’s something wrong. Amazing movie. While the Blu-ray isn’t ground breaking, it includes enough features and a beautiful transfer that makes it worthy as my Best Blu-ray of 2010 pick. Buy Now.
I tell you, the folks at UHV kind of screwed me on this Blu-ray release. I hate it when you work with studios all year on the smaller stuff, but the minute they have a guaranteed hit, they decide to face palm you. Next year I may ban all coverage of big releases until we’re treated with a bit more respect. I went out and bought it today, how could I not? It’s Back To The Future! Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson, Mary Steenburgen, Huey Lewis, Robert Zemeckis, Bob Gale and Neil Canton reunited to celebrate at the Back to the Future 25th Anniversary Trilogy Blu-ray & DVD party at on October 25, 2010 at Guastavino’s in New York. The evening included a Q&A with the cast and filmmakers, as well as an eight-foot DeLorean cake with red-hot flaming tracks by Chef Duff from “Ace of Cakes.” Check out the clips after the break.
