On the July 26, 2019 episode of /Film Daily, /Film editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta is joined by weekend editor Brad Oman, senior writer Ben Pearson, and writer Chris Evangelista to talk about the latest film and tv news, including Spider-Man: Far From Home, Disney+, Avengers: Endgame, Joker, Regal Unlimited, Criterion and Big Mouth.

Opening Banter: It's Friday!Feedback: Ryan, the director of AMC's Corporate Communications wrote into the podcast in response to our Spider-Man popcorn mystery argument: "Hey Peter – I heard the podcast yesterday and the discussion about the Spider-Man popcorn. I know that sometimes the debate is more fun than the actual answer, but I figured I'd ask around here to get the definitive answer. In case you wanted to know, the flavor (both colors) is Vanilla Kettle Corn."In The News:
