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.

Prometheus disappointed many Alien fans, has Ridley Scott got it right for prequel-sequel Alien: Covenant? Michael Fassbender is joined by Katherine Waterston, Billy Crudup and Danny McBride. We’ve also got Benedict’s interview with Alex Taylor, director of upcoming small British film Spaceship, and Laurie & Phil’s take on the unusual production. WWBW features Steven Soderbergh’s Side Effects with Rooney Mara and Jude Law, and M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth with Will & Jaden Smith. Another mini segment squeezes in covering the classic movie-reference-in-a-movie trope, with a few great and terrible examples. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – thanks for listening!
