This week on The First Run, Chris and Matt discuss ‘The Dead Don’t Die’. Your hosts both fell in love with 2016’s ‘Paterson’, starring Adam Driver. Is the flame still there with the inclusion of Bill Murray, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Tom Waits, Iggy Pop, Selena Gomez, RZA, Rosie Perez, Carol Kane, Caleb Landry Jones AND Tilda Swinton? Oh, and zombies?!? Then it’s on to the soft reboot of the Men In Black franchise, ‘MIB: International’. The star power is certainly there with the introduction of Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth to the series. But can they finally deliver a ‘Men In Black’ film that Chris will truly…enjoy? There’s the always refreshing rundown of the big releases on Blu-Ray and DVD, featuring the Straight to DVD and Streaming Picks of the Week. The show then wraps with the return of everyone’s favorite fill-in-the-blank game, TFR Libs. How would you answer: JJ Abrams’ megadeal with WarnerMedia is _______? And more!
