Three non-Oscar films this week to mix it up! Laurie saw Matt Damon in Alexander Payne’s Downsizing, Eddie Redmayne in Nick Park’s latest stop-motion feature Early Man, and Chris Hemsworth attempting to sound American in Nicolai Fuglsig’s directorial debut 12 Strong. No Phil this week, it’s a sort-of-pilot for a change-up in format – tell us what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. 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.

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.
