Early this week, I traveled to Lake Tahoe to cover an early press event for Bad Times at the El Royale, a 1960s-set crime drama written and directed by The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard. I spoke with Goddard on camera about his new movie (we’ll be publishing that video closer to the film’s release), but I caught up with him a few minutes after we recorded the interview to ask whether or not he’s directing a recently-announced Cloverfield movie. He also told me about his secret weapon for the upcoming X-Force movie. Read More »
