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. Check out the Dunkirk special for our in-depth review of Christopher Nolan’s latest epic, as well as all your emails and tweets on it. Thanks for listening!

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!
