Do we need another film in the "Predator" franchise? That's one of the subjects Steven and Chandler are tackling this week. Director Dan Trachtenberg has wrapped filming on the newest "Predator" film. Chandler is very excited. Steven, not so much.

The guys are also discussing the implications of Christopher Nolan taking his new film to Universal, casting news from the Willy Wonka prequel film, and some hilarious casting for a sequel to the 80's comedy "Twins."

Also this week, Act 3 is discussing "My Son," a new film starring James McAvoy and Claire Foy currently streaming on Peacock. The interesting bit here is that James McAvoy was not given a script or dialogue for this movie. Does his entirely improvised performance elevate this film? Check out what Steven and Chandler think, all in his episode of Act 3!
