As summer draws to a close the Pigs return with a podcast related to everyone’s favorite pastime: remaining indoors, alone, playing Fortnite. This episode we’re talking video game adaptations and their place in the increasingly mega-franchise-focused movie world. Plus, the latest and greatest movie news, a harrowing case of courtroom drama, a game where Todd answers an impossible question, and so much more!

This reminds me of requesting you guys to do a commentary for SILENT HILL all those years ago, and the legend of ‘Stripper Cop’ that came out of it.
Also,I thought the TOMB RAIDER reboot was a very entertaining meat-and-potatoes adventure flick. I hope they are pursuing a sequel, as I had heard recently.
I’d totally see another Tomb Raider reboot movie, and hope they can make the sequel happen. However, it was kind of in the range of the mid-range budget (40-100m) that Hollywood is reluctant to make nowadays. And while it made money, it wasn’t a home run at the box office. It might work really well as a stripped-down streaming service limited series, like the BBCs 80 min Sherlock episodes.
If this actually happens, I’m in. I liked HIGH RISE and FREE FIRE.
