Luc Besson’s record-breaking independent production landed in cinemas earlier this week with Dane DeHaan and Cara Delevingne – is it good enough to justify its enormous budget? Phil saw Kumail Nanjiani’s real-life romcom The Big Sick & caught up with Andy Serkis and Woody Harrelson in War for the Planet of the Apes. Laurie also managed to find a screening of Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled with Nicole Kidman, almost-darling of the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. And of course, we’ve got your emails and tweets to read out towards the end of the show – keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros! Thanks for listening.
It’s a bumper film week! Laurie’s seen Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword with Charlie Hunnam & Jude Law, Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal with Anne Hathaway & Jason Sudeikis, and Woody Harrelson’s live film project Lost in London. Phil caught John Madden’s Miss Sloane with Jessica Chastain, and WWBW returns with Juno and Predestination. We even squeeze in some thoughts on whether there’s a case for remastering old films, like George Lucas’ Star Wars special editions.
