Daily Podcast: Everything We Learned About Star Wars: The Last Jedi & Our Standalone Movie Wishlist

On the /Film Daily podcast for August 10, 2017, Peter Sciretta is joined by Ben Pearson, Brad Oman and Jacob Hall, who stop by the water cooler to discuss Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, The Magic Castle, RPG cases, and Mondo's Home Alone Cheese Pizza Vinyl. A dumpster truck full of Star Wars: The Last Jedi information has been dumped upon the world and we try to scavenge through the pile, as well as talk about Hellboy reboot casting. And in the Mail Bag, we'll talk about our hopes for the future of the Star Wars stand alone movies.
