The LEGENDARY, Oscar-nominated, Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor joins the show to discuss her new film The Glorias (starring Alicia Vikander, Janelle Monáe, Julianne Moore), now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. We discuss a sequel to Across the Universe that she wants to get made, the amazing crew and creative heads she worked with on The Glorias, and so much more. A true genius, and an incredible interview for the ReelBlend history books.

Also on this week's show, we talk the new trailer for The Craft reboot coming in October, Barry Jenkins being tapped to direct a follow up to 2019's The Lion King, Marvel's slate being completely wiped from 2020, Borat 2, and more.

We also celebrate the career of the late, great Michael Chapman with #MichaelChapmanBlend. Next week, we kick off the month of October with #HauntedHouseBlend. Send in your favorite film that features, surrounds, includes some sort of haunted property.
