In this first episode of our newly re-branded series, The Newsstand, the CriterionCast team discusses the week’s film news.

We’re joined by our friend, Justin Vactor (host of the Comics Of Doom podcast on Geeks Of Doom), to talk about the latest announcements from Apple and how that will affect the ability to watch the Criterion Collection titles in HD on your various devices. We also discuss the news that Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom will open the Cannes Film Festival, the latest news regarding the Robocop re-make, as well as the various teases for the upcoming June Criterion line-up.
