The IGN Movies Show

Welcome back to the IGN Movies Podcast! This week, Jim Vejvoda and Tom Jorgensen are joined by a very special guest, actor Ben Mendelsohn!

The acclaimed actor spends the entirety of the podcast discussing everything from his latest film --the World War II drama Darkest Hour -- to his past genre films (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, The Dark Knight Rises) to the properties that make him geek out (including Game of Thrones to Fantastic Four)!

We also ask Mendelsohn about the rumors that he's up for the villain role in Captain Marvel, but you'll have to listen to the podcast to learn what he has to say about that!

We're baaaaa-aaaaack! Yes, we're months overdue but the brand new IGN Movies Podcast is finally here!

Succeeding where our previous show, the now-retired Keepin' It Reel, left off, IGN Entertainment's Jim Vejvoda and Terri Schwartz are back to talk about movies, movies, and movies!

In this premiere episode, we're joined by our video producer Tom Jorgensen to talk FULL SPOILERS about Spider-Man: Homecoming! (Save and listen to this podcast AFTER you've seen the new Marvel movie because otherwise, well, we'll spoil it for you, duh!)

As this is just our first episode, expect some fine-tuning ahead and a different format in future episodes than Keepin' It Reel listeners were accustomed to, with a less news-driven angle and more opinion and topic-driven discussions instead.

Also, and this is important, don't expect this to be a weekly show. Given our busy schedules, which often involve events and travel that take us out of the office, it's more realistic to expect the IGN Movies Podcast to drop every two weeks. (We're still aiming at end of week publish times!)

A tremendous thank you to all those who wrote to us or approached us in person at events asking for the return of the podcast -- and for your patience during this longer-than-expected interval. We hope you like the new IGN Movies Podcast as much as you did Keepin' It Reel!
