Mads Mikkelsen Is In, ‘The Christmas Chronicles 2’ Is Out, and ‘Hillbilly Elegy’ Exists

by Collin Willis

After months of news and court proceedings, Johnny Depp is out of the Fantastic Beasts franchise. The good news is that his replacement has been found in none other than Mads Mikkelsen. Nick and I break down our thoughts on both the Danish actor and the franchise he’s now a part of.

We also break down Netflix’s latest releases, The Christmas Chronicles 2 and Hillbilly Elegy. We talk about the enduring charm of Kurt Russell and the consistency(?) of Ron Howard.

All this and more on this week’s episode of The MovieBabble Podcast!
