It was a bad summer at the box office, which posted numbers far below last year despite blockbusters like Wonder Woman and Guardians of the Galaxy 2.  Despite the low turnout, some films were well-received, including Dunkirk and Spider-Man: Homecoming. Steven Greydanus  joins us with a review of recent films and a look to the fall. We’ll also discuss the news that the word “God” will not be used in the new Star-Trek series, and how religion has been portrayed in the classic Sci-Fi series.

5:00 –Capitol Hill Roundup

The House of Representatives will vote today on a pain-capable abortion ban, which would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy except when the mother’s life is in danger. Jason Calvi joins us with a look at this story and a review of other news out of Congress.
