Chris and Blaise welcome the show’s first guest, Garrett Hopkins, for the Oscars Edition of the Awesome Mix Podcast! We’re releasing this a day earlier than normal so people can listen before the Academy Awards are on tomorrow, but this week we skip news and reviewing our weekly television shows to focus everything onto the awards. Listen in as we discuss a bunch of big categories and what we thought of the nominees as well as who we believe should win and who will actually take home the award.
Chris and I also sneak in a quick review (rant) about Hot Tub Time Machine 2, which we saw this past week.
Last night Bryan Singer tweeted out that the upcoming 2016 X-Men:Apocalypse has found its Nightcrawler in young actor Kodi Smit-McPhee. He joins the amazing cast that already includes the likes of Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy along with newcomers Alexandra Shipp, Sophie Turner, and Tye Sheridan who are playing the young versions of Storm, Jean Grey, and Cyclops.
X-Men:Apocalypse is looking like it will be one very epic film with the new cast being put together, especially with Oscar Isaac playing the villain. I really like Smit-McPhee’s look for Nightcrawler and think he should be able to pull off the roll well. X-Men:Apocalypse is scheduled for a May 27, 2016 release date and trailers should start popping up later this year.
