The Film Buds Podcast
Bonus Podcast: Jupiter Ascending + Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
In the wake of many recent blockbuster flops, this eighth Film Buds bonus show covers box-office bombs! Our wacky friend Jacob Bowers sits down with Henry to get forced into intergalactic marriage by the Wachowskis' Jupiter Ascending (2015) then see an iconic French comic book series finally come to life in Luc Besson's Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets (2017). Later we delve into the current state of cinema, the potential problems it faces ahead, and much more! And don't forget to donate to the show at thefilmbuds.com/donate!
