Black Panther is making a splash in newspaper columns & box offices around the world – can it live up to the hype? Staying on the high-expectations train, we also dissect Guillermo del Toro’s massively awards-nominated The Shape of Water. Should it take home all 13 of the Oscars it’s tipped for? Back in WWBW land, Phil caught up with Steven Soderbergh’s Logan Lucky, and Laurie watched Ryan Reynolds charm everyone again in 2000s romcom Definitely, Maybe. And there’s also a sneaky Picture Perfect in there Laurie feels somewhat self-conscious about… stay tuned to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep all your thoughts coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros! Thanks for listening.
We both saw Kingsman: The Golden Circle, reuniting most of the original cast for Matthew Vaughn’s sequel and hopeful franchise starter; how does it hold up? Phil managed to catch Shia LaBeouf in sports docu-drama Borg McEnroe, and WWBW features Milla Jovovich in Ultraviolet, Josh Hartnett & Lucy Liu in Lucky Number Slevin, and Will Ferrell & Emma Thompson in Stranger Than Fiction. We even squeezed in time to chat about the forgotten art of movie theme songs a la ‘Kiss from a Rose’ by Seal.

Steven Soderbergh returns from a 4-year retirement to direct his self-admitted ‘anti-glam’ Ocean’s 11 in Logan Lucky, with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver & Daniel Craig – is it worth a watch? Laurie went to see it, and also caught Tom Cruise trying something a little different in Doug Liman’s based-on-real-events drug story American Made. We take a brief look at Ewan McGregor’s career and touch on the announced Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars feature, and Phil takes us through Nora Ephron’s comedy-lifestyle flick Julie & Julia, with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams.
