TRIVIA – JON FAVREAU
With Jon Favreau’s hit “The Jungle Book” recently arriving on BluRay and iTunes, his cameo in the upcoming “Spiderman: Homecoming” movie, and now the announcement of him helming “The Lion King” adaptation, I thought it would be appropriate to have some Jon Favreau Cinema Squad Trivia!

- Angelina Jolie to star in the Afghanistan war drama “Shoot Like a Girl.”

October is officially here! So it’s time to dust off those horror classics and scare yourself into the Halloween mood. My question for the panel: What scary horror movies (or just Halloween movies) do you watch every year to get into the mood for Halloween?
