Loads of films this week! Laurie saw Christian Bale in Hostiles, Christopher Plummer in Ridley Scott’s All the Money in the World and Ben Stiller in Brad’s Status, while Phil caught Jessica Chastain in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game, and Jack Black in Richard Linklater’s odd film Bernie. Phew! We’ve also got a thought on slow zooms in film; how you begin to notice little technical details as you watch lots of films, and your emails and tweets towards the end of the show. Send in your thoughts, +1s or -1s and anything else you can think of to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter – thanks for listening!
Phil saw Kathryn Bigelow’s latest heavy-hitting drama Detroit, with John Boyega and Will Poulter, and also caught Idris Elba and Matthew McConaughey in The Dark Tower, adapting Stephen King’s hugely popular series for the big screen. Laurie saw Bill Nighy and Olivia Cooke prance about in Jane Goldman’s adaptation of Stephen Ackroyd’s novel, The Limehouse Golem, and he brings Road House with Patrick Swayze to the table for What We’ve Been Watching. Phil also offers up his own views on Colossal with Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis, and we’ve got all your emails and tweets to read out too.

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!
