This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss director Gaspar Noé’s latest film, ‘Climax’. If you’ve ever wondered what would happen when a dance troupe unknowingly drinks laced sangria, and was hosted by a madman (Gaspar Noé), well here’s your chance to find out. Noé is known for his arresting films. Will ‘Climax’ be any different? Then it’s the sci-fi action film ‘Captive State’, directed by Rupert Wyatt (‘Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes’). Aliens have already won the war and are harvesting our planet for its resources. Can a small band of rebels fight back and spark a revolt? And will it be remotely interesting? There’s the never-endingly interesting rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray & DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. Finally it’s The List featuring birthday boy Kurt Russell. Matt and Chris hash out what are Kurt Russell’s best films/roles. Will Copper in ‘The Fox And The Hound’ make the cut? What’s your favorite Russell role?
