We’re back! Fresh off an early fall break, GeekScholars Movie News has returned and this week’s episode begins with a review of the films coming out of the 2016 Toronto Film Festival that look poised to make an awards season run. From there, it’s ‘Never Tell Me the Odds’ as the hosts give their probabilities on: a Mad Max Prequel, The Rundown 2 getting made, a Dune remake, and whether or not Benicio Del Toro will join The Predator.
Joel Edgerton (The Gift) and Ruth Negga (Preacher) star in Jeff Nichols’ film Loving – the story of ‘the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple’ who married in a time when that was labelled ‘miscegenation’ and was against the law.
The film’s first trailer follows the jump. Loving will open on November 4th.
