If you remember back in the 80s and 90s, television began the trend of discussing “True Crime” events through dramatizations on shows like Unsolved Mysteries or as docuseries such as Cops. There have always been shows devoted to investigative reporting, yet it seems as though this was the moment when the genre of “True Crime” truly began to percolate.

The genre continued to explode, arriving at our current moment with juggernaut docuseries such as Making a Murderer and Evil Genius, and also scripted true crime shows revolving around the O.J. case and Versace. As both a writer and podcaster in the world of True Crime, Kevin Flynn of …These Are Their Stories and Crime Writers On drops by to discuss the explosion of “True Crime” over the last few years.

Also this week: reviews of Tag, Killing Eve and Flint Town; Doctor Sleep and Dolemite casting updates; S-Town launches into film; new releases, and much more.

Yellow Birds stars Alden Ehrenreich and Tye Sheridan as Brandon Bartle and Daniel Murphy, two young men whose bond is strengthened by their tour overseas in Iraq. But as often happens in war, tragedy strikes, and we then watch as Bartle leads us to the pieces of a looming mystery as to what exactly happened overseas. The film also stars Jennifer Anniston and Toni Collette.

For this interview, Aaron sits down with director Alexandre Moors to discuss getting his film made, how he ended up with such a stellar cast full of actors from such recent films as Han Solo, Ready Player One and Hereditary, and why this story was an important one to tell.

The Yellow Birds arrives in select theaters and on demand on June 15th, 2018
