May The Force be with us.
This week on "CAN'T WAIT!", Tim Hayne, Tony Maccio, Rachel Horner, and Phil Pirrello offer up their thoughts on the brand-new trailers for three highly anticipated 2017 movies: "Spider-Man: Homecoming," "War for the Planet of the Apes," and "The Fate of the Furious" -- or, more appropriately titled, "The F8 of the Furious." Everyone is excited about all three movies, except for Rachel, who just can't seem to get in the driver's seat of the "Fast & Furious" franchise.
The conversation then moves to the Moviefone gang's Not-So-Secret Santa Holiday Movie Swap, in which we each pulled a name out of a hat and gifted that lucky person with the holiday movie of our choosing. Tony got Phil, who watched the 1994 remake of "Miracle on 34th Street"; Phil got Tim, who watched the animated "Arthur Christmas"; Tim got Rachel, who watched Finland's classic "Rare Exports: A Christmas Tale"; and Rachel got Tony, who watched Nancy Meyers's "The Holiday." And a Merry Christmas was had by all. Except for Tony, whose movie was about 30 minutes longer than everyone else's.
Next up: "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." The gang -- who all saw the movie -- gets down to business, talking about the highs, lows, and very confounding reviews for the "Star Wars" one-off. It's mostly a spoiler-free session, but you're still listening at your own risk.
