/Filmcast Ep. 128 - TRON: Legacy (GUEST: Annalee Newitz From Io9)

This week, David Chen, Devindra Hardawar and Adam Quigley reflect on Jon Favreau's decision not to direct the next Iron Man, wonder how much The Tree of Life has in common with The Fountain, and ponder the unnecessaryness of sequels for Shakespeare in Love, Bad Santa, and Rounders. Special guest Annalee Newitz joins us from io9.
