The Return of Marvel, Musicals and Movies in General
These are exciting times! At long last, it seems that movies – along with their trailers – are coming back. There are simply too many recently released trailers to talk about in one sitting, so for this episode, we narrow our conversation down to two things that are near and dear to us: Marvel and musicals. We discuss the latest trailers for Marvel's "Black Widow" as well as "Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" – plus trailers for Steven Spielberg's "Westside Story" and the film adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda's "In the Heights.” We also return to the topic of corporate sizzle reels, reviewing Netflix's "Summer Movie Preview" and "Marvel Studios Celebrates the Movies."

We're Trying Our Best: Trailers in the Time of COVID
As movie theaters shut down across the country, studios are delaying their movie releases and pumping the brakes on their trailers – leaving us with little to talk about. So in this episode, we set our sights on 'The Invisible Man', which recently jumped from theaters to Video On Demand, and compare the movie to its trailer. Also, in keeping up with the very timely theme of checking on each other's health, we share updates on our own experiences with COVID-19. This episode is sponsored by the one and only Ian Phillips.

Our First Look at ‘The Irishman’ and This Year's Oscar Hopefuls
Every Fall season comes with a heap of movies vying for prestigious awards, and with Fall on the horizon we're beginning to see these movies' trailers. The biggest of these awards contenders might be 'The Irishman', a highly anticipated gangster epic reuniting Martin Scorsese with Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, not to mention Al Pacino (who Scorsese has never worked with before). In this episode, we review the first full-length teaser trailer for 'The Irishman', addressing topics like "face technology", Netflix's possible release strategy, and just how much the world missed Joe Pesci. We also review trailers for 'Jojo Rabbit', a delightful-looking anti-war satire from "visionistical" director Taika Waititi, and 'The Lighthouse', which might be the most unique (i.e. weird) movie among this year's awards seekers. Check out the trailers yourself by visiting the links below. ‘The Irishman’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Expe7hf6MU ‘Jojo Rabbit’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTqd4yNFuSw ‘The Lighthouse’: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyag7lR8CPA

Once Upon a Trailer... in Hollywood
Trailers don't just promote movies these days. They're now used for shows, networks and streaming services.

From there, our focus turns to television, where we discuss the trailers for ‘Stranger Things 3’ and Apple's soon-to-be streaming service, Apple TV+.
