Special guest Michael Guarnieri joins Cinemaholics to (in Will’s words) “replace Jon Negroni while he’s still on his honeymoon for some reason, what a clown” (again, Will’s words). First up, Idris Elba! He’s in a new thriller called Beast from Universal and director Baltasar Kormákur, and it’s been getting surprisingly solid reviews considering its release schedule, but are the Cinemaholics going wild about it? Next up is Bodies Bodies Bodies from A24, the much-talked-about dark horror comedy from director Halina Reijn starring Amandla Stenberg, Maria Bakalova, Rachel Sennott, Lee Pace, and yes, amazingly, Pete Davidson. And last, you didn’t think we’d miss a chance to talk about the last few episodes of The Rehearsal, did you? You did? OK, sorry, didn’t prepare ourselves for that answer. Regardless, we talk about the last few episodes of Nathan Fielder’s mind-breaking “who needs a fourth wall?” HBO series, The Rehearsal.

THIS IS NOT A SAFE SPACE. In an isolated family mansion, a group of rich 20-somethings decides to play Bodies Bodies Bodies, a game where one of them is secretly a “killer” while the rest tries to “escape”. Things take a turn for the worse when real bodies start turning up, setting off a paranoid and dangerous chain of events. [Source: Letterboxd]
