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!
Only one Oscar nom this week – Laurie saw Maren Ade’s Toni Erdmann, up for Best Foreign Language Film. Phil trotted off to see animated animals go X Factor in Garth Jennings’ Sing, and Laurie also went to see Matthew McConaughey transform for Stephen Gaghan’s faux-biopic Gold. Movie News briefly touches on Ben Affleck’s announcement that he is no longer in line to direct DC’s next Batman, and Laurie has a mystery new feature to add too!
