To Kill A Mockingbird 1.jpg

Is "Battleship," from venerable auteur Hasbro, one of Filmspotting's most anticipated summer movies? No. No, it's not. Special guest Michael Phillips (Chicago Tribune) sits in for Filmspotting's Summer Movie Preview, and helps Adam and Josh reconsider the 1962 classic "To Kill a Mockingbird" in honor of its 50th Anniversary. Plus, some thoughts on two new acclaimed foreign-language films, "This Is Not a Film" and "Monsieur Lazhar."
