This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss the romantic comedy sweeping the nation, ‘Crazy Rich Asians’. It’s a story we’ve seen before, but with a unique perspective and a championing of diversity. Can it elevate itself above the typical RomCom fare? Then it’s on to the latest from Steven Soderbergh, ‘Unsane’, shot entirely on an iPhone 7 Plus. It’s a story about a woman setting up a new life, hoping to escape her stalker. When she “accidentally” commits herself to an institution, is he theres as one of the workers? Or has she truly gone mad? There’s the always reliable rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Then it’s the introduction of our new segment, ‘Credits’. Matt and Chris try and pin down what the essential film credit is for Tom Cruise, Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, and more!
