#679: Summer Movie Questions / You Were Never Really Here / The Rider

the_incredibles_movie-wallpaper.jpg

The massive success of "Black Panther" and "Avengers: Infinity War" may have made the concept of a “summer” blockbuster season irrelevant, but there will still be summer and there will still be summer movies. And despite Marvel's early box office dominance, big movies await in the form of high profile sequels for "Jurassic World," "Deadpool" and "The Incredibles." Oh, and a little "Star Wars Story" about Han Solo arriving on Memorial Day. For their look ahead at the upcoming slate of releases, Adam and Josh ignore (almost) all of those to pose their Top 5 Summer Movie Questions, with queries about the Pope, Mister Rogers and maybe this year's "Lady Bird"?

Plus, reviews of Lynne Ramsay's YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE with Joaquin Phoenix and Chloe Zhao's acclaimed THE RIDER, and Adam recommends the new reality-is-stranger-than-fiction doc THREE IDENTICAL STRANGERS.
