The News Reel #28: Every Movie Ever – The Origin Story


On this week’s episode, we discuss the idea of movie franchise prequels and question whether we need them or not after the news of a new Die Hard origin story was announced this week. We also look at the first trailer for Ratchet & Clank, an update on the next Wes Anderson movie, and debate whether we could re-watch The Godfather multiple times.
