The lovable marmalade-guzzling bear is back in Paddington 2, Paul King’s follow-up to the hugely successful 2014 adaptation, bringing the Browns back together and adding Hugh Grant to the mix. Should you care about the bear this time round? Laurie also saw Only the Brave, based on the real lives of the Granite Mountain Hotshots in the run-up to the Yarnell Hill wildfire of 2013, starring Josh Brolin and Miles Teller. We cover yet another story from Disney and Star Wars about Rian Johnson’s surprise bonus trilogy, set somewhere else in that Galaxy far, far away, while WWBW returns with Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns and Tim Roth in The Legend of 1900, requested a long time ago by one of our listeners. Stay tuned to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
Luc Besson’s record-breaking independent production landed in cinemas earlier this week with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne – is it good enough to justify its enormous budget? Phil saw Kumail Nanjiani’s real-life romcom The Big Sick & caught up with Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson in War for the Planet of the Apes. Laurie also managed to find a screening of Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled with Nicole Kidman, almost-darling of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. And of course, we’ve got your emails and tweets to read out towards the end of the show – keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros! Thanks for listening.
