This week on the podcast, Glenn and Daniel tackle their final #SIFF2015 selection, Sleeping With Other People, the upcoming sex-comedy-cum-romantic-drama from Leslye Headland (Bachelorette), who’s reminding us more and more of early Kevin Smith. But first, we tackle director Colin Trevorrow‘s long-awaited return to the highly lucrative land of the dinosaurs with Jurassic World, a film that vastly exceeded our trailer-expectations (54:44).

As of this writing, Sleeping With Other People is scheduled for release on August 21, 2015, via IFC Films (likely VOD and limited theatrical).
Music for tonight’s episode is John Williams’ classic track from the original score to Jurassic Park, entitled “Journey to the Island“, as well as David Bowie‘s “Modern Love“, from the soundtrack to Sleeping With Other People.
As SIFF continues, Glenn and Daniel check out the highly anticipated time travel comedy Safety Not Guaranteed, which comes home to Seattle along with much of its cast and crew. Then they jump out of their seats and run to the next auditorium to pose as film critics in a packed screening of Bart Layton‘s utterly fascinating documentary/thriller, The Imposter.
