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!
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.

Find out whether Batman is better in block-form! Phil saw the new LEGO Batman movie with Will Arnett, while Laurie caught another Oscar contender in Hidden Figures with Taraji P. Henson & Octavia Spencer. He also saw much-maligned teen space drama The Space Between Us with Gary Oldman and Asa Butterfield, and the episode rounds off with a bizarre trail through IMDb.
