Gal Gadot storms into cinemas as Wonder Woman this weekend, has the DCEU finally scored a hit with Patty Jenkins directing? Laurie tells all and also covers Hirokazu Kore-eda’s new family drama After the Storm, plus Brad Pitt’s new political satire War Machine on Netflix originals. Phil caught Johnny Depp and Brenton Thwaites in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (or was it Dead Men Tell No Tales?), and also covers off the whole Pirates franchise for a bit of nostalgic context in WWBW. Thanks for your emails & tweets sent to email@example.com and @superbaileybros, and thanks for listening!
WWII romance, comedy and drama ahoy for Laurie in Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy. Phil tucks into an oddly compelling erotic mystery in Park Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden, and Benedict fills us in on an experimental coming-of-age slash vampire horror flick with Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration. WWBW features Karl Urban in Pete Travis’ reboot Dredd, as well as Chris Pine and co. in Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond. Take a breath! We also have a special ‘Ask Benedict’ section where we fling a couple of Benedict and/or horror related emails at our horror correspondent, Benedict Seal. Thanks for listening!
