• May 22nd, 2015

Atlas shrugged, as so does Witney Seibold at the new sci-fi blockbuster Tomorrowland on this week's all-new B-Movies Podcast!

Plus: Jack Reacher gets a sequel, George Romero's zombie movies move to TV, the internet kills a found-footage Friday the 13th, Matthew McConaughey is rumored to play The Green Goblin, Akiva Goldsman assembles big name writers to take over the Transformers movies, and Reese Witherspoon goes all Tink for Disney.

On this week's very special bonus episode, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold welcome Daredevil executive producer Steven S. DeKnight onto the program to discuss all the juicy behind the scenes details and daring creative decisions that went into making the first Marvel Studios series on Netflix. It's an hour-long, in depth interview for Daredevil fans everywhere, but fair warning: here there be spoilers.

Special Guest: Rob Cohen

• April 27th, 2015

He gave the world The Fast and the Furious, The Monster Squad, The Wiz and xXx, and now he's on CraveOnline's B-Movies Podcast, sharing eye-opening stories that span decades of film history. Filmmaker Rob Cohen is in the house, and he's here to tell your host William Bibbiani all about his underrated new erotic thriller The Boy Next Door and all of his biggest movies to date!

In this in-depth, extended episode of The B-Movies Podcast, Rob Cohen reveals that Jennifer Lopez had final cut on the sex scene from The Boy Next Door, and only asked Cohen to cut out a second shot of co-star Ryan Guzman's naked ass. He also explains why, despite all the internet outcry, that first edition of Homer's The Iliad makes perfect sense. No really, it does!

But wait, there's more! In this week's bonus episode, Cohen also reveals his original plans for 2 Fast 2 Furious and the behind the scenes struggle to get Michael Jackson cast in The Wiz, because director Sidney Lumet thought Jackson was just "a Vegas act." 

Is there any future at all for the Monster Squad reboot, or the third xXx movie? The answers may surprise you on The B-Movies Podcast Presents: Rob Cohen! Follow the show on Twitter at @BMoviesPodcast, follow your host at @WilliamBibbiani, and be sure to check out The Boy Next Door, on home video now.
