From live-action Disney remakes like the Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan – to fresh takes on classic films like Little Women and A Star is Born, remakes connect with audiences in a big way. Since a lot of us are watching movies at home right now, we thought we'd take a look at "the art of the remake" and explore some classic remakes available on the Cineplex Store, as well as some "new again" films coming out later this year. Join us as host Natasha Gargiulo discusses upcoming remakes of West Side Story, Dune, Candyman, and Green Knight with award-winning Canadian journalist and filmmaker Chandler Levack, and Sal Patel, managing editor of Shopify Studios in Toronto, and former managing content producer at the Toronto International Film Festival’s digital studio.
In this episode of Hello Movies, we take a peek at some brand new films that shine a light on the different kinds of hiding we humans do. John Krasinski shares his unique directorial and writerly perspective on hiding from those creepy giant spider things in A Quiet Place II, while director Jeff Barnaby talks about putting an Indigenous spin on the age-old practice of hiding from zombies in Blood Quantum. And let's not forget Mulan, who hid from an entire army simply by putting on pants! Plus you won't want to miss the expert analysis of the week's upcoming theatrical releases. After all, what better place to hide from the real world for a few hours than a visit to some alternate universes? See you there! 
Host Natasha Gargiulo talks with Ben Affleck about his role in The Way Back, where he plays a basketball coach haunted by addiction and past trauma. Cineplex magazine Editor Marni Weisz brings the lowdown on Onward, the latest animation from Pixar, where two teens go on a fantastic quest to recapture the memory of their dad. And scientist Dominic Walliman (from YouTube’s Domain of Science) explains the theory behind Bloodshot, where Vin Diesel plays a resuscitated nanotechnology-enhanced super soldier who goes on a revenge mission when he finally remembers who was behind his death. Memory plays a role in all 3 of the films we’re focusing on this week — so don’t forget to listen! 
Host Natasha Gargiulo speaks with Alexandra West from the Faculty of Horror Podcast about all things horror: an innovative studio's take on a classic TV show with Blumhouse's Fantasy Island, the intelligent and super suspenseful sci-fi thriller The Invisible Man, and the return of the creepy haunted doll in Brahms: The Boy II. Plus, join Marni Weisz, Editor, Cineplex Magazine, for an auditory romp through the terrifying terrain of horror soundtracks.  Hold onto your popcorn -- there's bound to be a few jump-scares!
