Superhero movies are the most powerful force in the entertainment industry, and they have been for decades. But nothing lasts forever! This week on CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED, film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore how superhero movies got so big, what it would take to dethrone them, and the next logical step for popular culture. Or at least, the next logical step for superhero movie fans who start searching for more.
Also this week, Bibbs and Witney review the new releases THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA, FAST COLOR, RED JOAN, DISNEY'S PENGUINS and HAGAZUSSA!
