Cinema Royale: Talking ‘The Bikeriders’, New ‘Blade’ Director, And More!

Grab your colors, open the throttle, and get ready to hit the open road! We’re talking Jeff Nichols’ The Bikeriders on this episode of Cinema Royale! I’m joined by my homie Chris Bumbray, editor-in-chief of to discuss Nichols’ motorcycle club drama starring Tom Hardy, Jodie Comer, Austin Butler, and of course Michael Shannon is in it he’s in every Jeff Nichols movie! Released a year later than anticipated, will The Bikeriders be the awards season hit that many expect it to be?

Plus, we spend a few minutes kicking around the question of who should take over as the director of Blade, and we also talk the new Beverly Hills Cop movie with Eddie Murphy. We’re just shootin’ the shit as usual because that’s how we do it.

All of this and more on a new episode of Cinema Royale, which you can find anywhere that you get podcasts.
