Previews: LEGO Ninjago Movie, The Snowman, Death of Stalin

We’re off on hollygols until next week but here are some previews and bonus bits to keep your ears happy! We preview the current big releases, including Dave Franco & Olivia Munn in the LEGO Ninjago Movie, Michael Fassbender & Rebecca Ferguson in The Snowman, and Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin with Jason Isaacs & Steve Buscemi, and round off with some silliness about hotel slippers. Thanks for listening – get your reviews of these films in to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros and we’ll feature them on next week’s show!

Blade Runner 2049

Denis Villeneuve’s hugely anticipated sequel is here, and so far the critical consensus looks promising – what did Phil & Laurie make of it? Ryan Gosling, Harrison Ford, Sylvia Hoeks, Robin Wright, Jared Leto and Dave Bautista star in this futuristic sort-of-mystery set 30 years after the events of Ridley Scott’s 1982 seminal sci-fi classic. Tell us if you agree/disagree with us, and which of us made their point best! And send your own reviews to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!

Videogame Movie Special – Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, Warcraft, Assassin’s Creed, Max Payne & Super Mario Bros.

Are videogame adaptations the next big studio cash cow? We take a look at the state of the videogame film genre, covering box office winners & losers over the last 20 years and trying to figure out why none of them have so far avoided a ‘Rotten’ critical reception. Featuring detailed looks at Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil (2002) and Mark Wahlberg in Max Payne (2008), we also chat through other videogame franchises we’d like to see on the big screen. Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to superbaileybros@gmail.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening – and sorry it’s a day late this week!
