Gal Gadot storms into cinemas as Wonder Woman this weekend, has the DCEU finally scored a hit with Patty Jenkins directing? Laurie tells all and also covers Hirokazu Kore-eda’s new family drama After the Storm, plus Brad Pitt’s new political satire War Machine on Netflix originals. Phil caught Johnny Depp and Brenton Thwaites in Pirates of the Caribbean: Salazar’s Revenge (or was it Dead Men Tell No Tales?), and also covers off the whole Pirates franchise for a bit of nostalgic context in WWBW.

Laurie strapped in for a white-knuckle Marvel (Disney) ride with the Guardians in their hugely anticipated sequel, again penned and helmed by studio magic man James Gunn. He also saw Oscar Isaac & Christian Bale in The Promise, and caught Florence Pugh & William Oldroyd’s almost-debut, Lady Macbeth. We answer Stephen’s pressing film problem in our Movie Clinic, this time featuring Lorene Scafaria’s Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World, and WWBW takes us through The Amazing Spiderman 2 and the Oscar-winning Birdman.
