Has Netflix scored a hit with sports doping documentary Icarus? Phil tells all, while Laurie catches up with Judi Dench and Ali Fazal in historical drama Victoria & Abdul and Dylan O’Brien and Michael Keaton in ‘espionage thriller’ American Assassin. Pixar’s Ratatouille also joins the pack for WWBW, with Phil and Laurie on opposite sides for the first time in a while! We’ve got your emails and tweets towards the end of the show too – keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
Phil pulled his socks up and tried not to scream (too much) watching the new take on Stephen King’s horror classic It with Bill Skarsgård, while Laurie watched Jeremy Renner try to out craggy-face Daniel Craig in Taylor Sheridan’s chilly crime drama Wind River. We also dip into the news that J. J. Abrams will return to direct and co-write Star Wars Episode IX, replacing Colin Trevorrow, and cover Jet Li’s Fearless (2006) and Viggo Mortensen in Eastern Promises (2007) for WWBW this week. Stay tuned to the end for your emails and tweets, and keep them coming to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
The gas-guzzling franchise returns for more ridiculous action fun, but has it finally jumped the shark? Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson & Charlize Theron put the pedal to the metal. In other news, Jude Law has been announced as young Dumbledore, so we give our two wizarding cents. We’ve also got quick reviews of Paul Verhoeven’s Elle with Oscar-nominated Isabelle Huppert, Trespass Against Us with Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson, and four WWBW reviews with Kingsman: The Secret Service, American Hustle, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And of course, your emails and tweets. There you go, more film stuff than you can shake a stick at! Keep in touch on email@example.com and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
