The Backlot by Alamo Drafthouse for Thursday, October 3 2019
This week, we have a full crew as we break down the top 5 films last weekend at the box office, talk about Kevin Feige's workload, Jenn breaks down the best from Fantastic Fest, and more -- including this week's 'Joker' release and all the special programming at the Alamo Drafthouse. As always, all this and more coming to you from the Alamo Drafthouse in Springfield, Missouri. Be sure to vote in our 'Face/Off' face off! We each picked one actor to swap film roles with Nic Cage. Who did everyone pick? Which is your favorite swap? Did we really enforce a time limit on David? Check it out near the end of the episode and vote for your favorite -- or tell us what actor would have been a better swap with Nic Cage -- on Twitter and on Facebook. Just search for @BacklotPod on either. We pinned the 'Face/Off' face off to the top of each. Make your comments a part of the show! Let us know what movie you saw at the movie theater, what you thought of that movie (or any of the special programming at the Alamo Drafthouse), or your thoughts on anything we discussed this week. If we use your comments and suggestions, we'll give you a shout out on an upcoming episode. Contact us at: On social media on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram @BacklotPod Or leave a recorded message on our hotline at (417) 986-7842.  Follow the Alamo Drafthouse online: Download the Alamo Drafthouse app on your mobile device.
