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!

Another 4-movie episode! Phil saw Loving, starring Oscar-nominated Ruth Negga, Laurie saw Oscar-nommed 20th Century Women with Annette Bening and Denial with Rachel Weisz, while horror correspondent Benedict Seal dropped in to talk soft-reboot Rings. Phil also asks for help in choosing the ideal Valentine’s Day movie – for an unspecified reason. Thanks for listening & stay in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros!
Oscar season is well & truly here with two major contenders. Laurie saw Pablo Larraín’s unusual biopic of JFK’s First Lady starring Natalie Portman, and Phil saw Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea with the much-nominated Casey Affleck front and centre. We also welcome new horror correspondent Benedict Seal to the show for The Bye Bye Man and Laurie managed to squeeze in Ben Affleck’s Boston gangster epic Live By Night too. Big show this week!
