Who Won the Week Episode 31: Independence Day: Resurgence, Justice League, Star Trek fan film

Welcome to the latest episode of Who Won the Week, a weekly podcast in which Blastr staffers Adam Swiderski, Aaron Sagers and Dany Roth look back at the week that was and the stories that are blowing up the geek-o-sphere.

This week, we're joined by special guest Lindsay Ellis, who brings her Roland Emmerich expertise to bear on our discussion of a sequel 20 years in the making: Independence Day: Resurgence. Does it capture the alien-invasion magic of its predecessor ... and where does the franchise go from here? Then we take a dip into the news coming out from this past week's surprise Justice League set visits and debate whether DC can rebound from the mixed reaction to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And, finally, we examine the latest developments in Paramount's contentious relationship with Star Trek fan film. All this and Game of Thrones' latest and greatest ship in our look at the week in geek!
