“Batman v Superman” wasn’t a hit with critics, but that didn’t seem to make much of a difference at the box office. The massive blockbuster set records around the world that easily drowned out all the hatred. And it’s still going strong into its second weekend, when the competition includes a low-key Richard Linklater movie about college baseball players. Still, even if “Everybody Wants Some!!” won’t gross the same ridiculous figures that greeted Zack Snyder’s superhero movie, it attests to the perseverance of filmmakers like Richard Linklater. So at least some moviegoers can find solace in that. 

So begins the latest episode of Screen Talk, as Indiewire’s Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson parse the box office popularity of one movie and discuss its ramifications for very different kinds of art. They also touch on a controversial documentary pulled from the Tribeca Film Festival lineup and the challenges facing successful actors today.

Listen to the full episode above.
