WHAT’S THE STORY MUTHUR #3 – Dune, Metroid Dread, Titane – TONIGHT AT 5:00! (EST)

On today’s episode, Matt, Baker, and Justin talk about the box-office trajectory of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, how Metroid Dread on the Nintendo Switch earns it’s title, and an in-depth discussion of Titane, a new film from French filmmaker Julia Ducournau (Raw). Though not strictly science fiction, Titane featured enough thematic parallels to Alien to deem it worthy of discussion on the show. With grotesque scenes of body horror and grappling with issues of identity, family, and acceptance, the film rides quite a line between disturbing violence and tender moments of abject sweetness.
