Nerdist Podcast: J.J. Abrams and Dan Trachtenberg

J.J. Abrams (Bad Robot, Lost, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Dan Trachtenberg (Portal: No Escape, The Totally Rad Show) chat with Chris about the first computers they had as kids, how 10 Cloverfield Lane came to be, getting motion sick while watching shaky movies, how J.J. got dictation tapes of Rod Serling from The Twilight Zone, how J.J. has become a filmmaking icon, and what it was like for Dan to direct his first feature. Chris also has an interesting movie pitch for J.J.!
