Screen Rant Underground Podcast

The Screen Rant editorial team is back with episode twelve of the Screen Rant Underground.

Join host Ben Kendrick as well as fellow SR editors Rob Keyes, Kofi Outlaw and special guest Mike Eisenberg as we chat about the Star Trek 2 villain casting rumors and the live-action Akira adaptation as well as review Brett Ratner's comedy-action film, Tower Heist starring Eddie Murphy, Ben Stiller and Casey Affleck.

Screen Rant Underground is available in the iTunes Music Store (where you can subscribe as well as download individual episodes) but if you're not near your home computer, check out our twelfth episode in the player below. As mentioned in previous posts, we're still in the early stages of developing the show - so cut us a little slack as we get this thing off the ground.

Also, Screen Rant Underground is an EXPLICIT podcast. We don't go out of our way to say controversial things or use explicit language but it does happen - so use discretion when playing the podcast at work and around young, or sensitive, ears.
