Do Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson make a good on-screen husband and wife? Or has Sofology forever dented his acting chops? Laurie saw their new weepy film Wonder, also with Jacob Tremblay, and managed to catch Dan Stevens in the Charles Dickens almost-biopic The Man Who Invented Christmas for good measure. Phil speaks up for The Mask of Zorro as an under-appreciated classic, and also braves our first throw-away Christmas movie of the year in Nativity! with Martin Freeman.

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!
