Transformers 5, Gifted, Rock Dog, Movie News: Daniel Day-Lewis & Han Solo Directors, The Sweetest Thing, Thor: The Dark World & Older People in Film

So much to say! Michael Bay directs the 5th (and last?) robots-in-disguise film, Transformers: The Last Knight, while we also cover Chris Evans in Gifted and Luke Wilson in animated feature Rock Dog. Two big movie news stories make the cut, with Daniel Day-Lewis‘s shock retirement, and Disney cutting ties with acclaimed directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller. WWBW has The Sweetest Thing (2002) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), and we also cram in some Movie Love/Hate thoughts on elderly characters, on top of  all your emails and tweets. Big show!

The Mummy, Churchill, Ma Loute, Bicentennial Man, The Host & Symbolism in Film

Phil catches up with Tom Cruise in The Mummy, kicking off Universal’s ‘Monsters Universe’ – or whatever they’re trying to call it – while Laurie saw Brian Cox take on Churchill and puzzled through Bruno Dumont’s surreal French satirical comedy Ma Loute. WWBW covers Robin Williams in Bicentennial Man and Saoirse Ronan in The Host, while we also chat a little bit about symbolism in film. Thanks for listening and sending your thoughts to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbailey bros!

My Cousin Rachel, BLAME!, Children of Men, Sense & Sensibility, Gladiator, How to Train Your Dragon and Movie Fan Frustration

Rachel Weisz tackles Daphne du Maurier’s enigmatic heroine in My Cousin Rachel, while BLAME! sees Netflix release a feature-length adaptation of a long-running Japanese manga series. Laurie saw both of these and also covers Children of Men and Gladiator for WWBW, with Phil taking a crack at How to Train Your Dragon and  Sense & Sensibility. He also tries to explain how he handles movie fan frustration when friends don’t pick up on a film in quite the same way. Thanks for your emails and tweets!
