It’s a bumper film week! Laurie’s seen Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword with Charlie Hunnam & Jude Law, Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal with Anne Hathaway & Jason Sudeikis, and Woody Harrelson’s live film project Lost in London. Phil caught John Madden’s Miss Sloane with Jessica Chastain, and WWBW returns with Juno and Predestination. We even squeeze in some thoughts on whether there’s a case for remastering old films, like George Lucas’ Star Wars special editions.

Prometheus disappointed many Alien fans, has Ridley Scott got it right for prequel-sequel Alien: Covenant? Michael Fassbender is joined by Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride. We’ve also got Benedict’s interview with Alex Taylor, director of upcoming small British film Spaceship, and Laurie & Phil’s take on the unusual production. WWBW features Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects with Rooney Mara and Jude Law, and M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth with Will & Jaden Smith. Another mini segment squeezes in covering the classic movie-reference-in-a-movie trope, with a few great and terrible examples. Thanks for listening!

Can Bloom still charm the room? Can the Boosh still amuse your bouche? OK, that last one makes no sense. Laurie saw Julian Barratt’s quirky British comedy Mindhorn and caught Orlando Bloom and Noomi Rapace in espionage thriller Unlocked too. Phil gives his thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2, and WWBW covers Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar and the Swedish version of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. We also throw a question your way – can you think of any great visionary film moments from Directors? Thanks for staying in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter!
