This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt are joined by James of PopCultNet to discuss the Nazi/War/Zombie/Action movie, ‘Overlord’ and ‘The Girl In The Spider’s Web’. First up, a squad of paratroopers land behind enemy lines in France to take down a radio tower and encounter something even more horrific going on. Nazis, zombies and action? How can you go wrong? And yet… Then it’s on to Fede Alvarez’s ‘Dragon Tattoo’ sequel/relaunch. This time Claire Foy steps into the Lisbeth Salander role. Has the franchise been reinvigorated or is Chris left wondering what role Noomi Repace has taken next? There’s the always exciting rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray and DVD, featuring the Streaming and Straight to DVD Picks of the Week. Our final segment this week is the role-playing classic, ‘Who Dat?’. Listen as we are visited by Kevin Fiege, James Cameron, J.J. Abrams and more! I can’t stand it, it’s so much fun!
