The Breakdown of 'Annihilation', 'Game Night', 'Mute', and 'Irreplaceable You'

The Movie Breakdown is rocking out four movie reviews for new 2018 releases. The big one is Alex Garland's follow-up to Ex Machina with his sci-fi thriller starring Natalie Portman in Annihilation. We also have our first theatrical comedy of the year in Game Night. From their we have Duncan Jones' latest sci-fi thriller in a movie he has been working on for over a decade in Mute. We also discuss the romance picture aiming for tears in Irreplaceable You. Then we look at the success of Black Panther and analyze what studios should learn from the picture being a huge hit. As always if you love the show then please spread the word to all big movie fans.
