The Summer of ’93 at 30 is a weekly retrospective journey through American pop culture during May, June, July and August of 1993. Brandon Peters, The Wrap’s Scott Mendelson and We Live Entertainment/Out Now with Aaron and Abe’s Aaron Neuwirth take a weekend by weekend look at the films released during the summer as well as the news stories, television and music that rounded out the public’s lives as they lined the pockets of the box office to see these movies.
May 7-9, 1993: Our opening week sees 3 films. An indie drama, adult comedy and a fictionalized biopic. Learn about the legend of Bruce Lee in Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, see Jeff Bridges and Edward Furlong try and mend a father son relationship in American Heart; and have some laughs as Kevin Kline stands in for the president in Dave.
We’ll also be discussing the box office report, notable news stories, the top 10 Nielsen rated tv programs for the week and the top 10 of Casey Kasem’s weekly top 40 from the week these films were released. Also, Yancy Berns of The Milky Way Blues will be sharing “Yancy’s Tales From The Video Store” each week.
