Summer Movie Preview / To Kill a Mockingbird / This Is Not a Film

Is "Battleship," from venerable auteur Hasbro, one of Filmspotting's most anticipated summer movies? No. No, it's not. Contributor Michael Phillips sits in for Filmspotting's Summer Movie Preview, and helps Adam and Josh reconsider the 1962 classic "To Kill a Mockingbird" in honor of its 50th Anniversary. Plus, some thoughts on two new acclaimed foreign-language films, "This Is Not a Film" and "Monsieur Lazhar."
