We’re off on hollygols until next week but here are some previews and bonus bits to keep your ears happy! We preview the current big releases, including Dave Franco & Olivia Munn in the LEGO Ninjago Movie, Michael Fassbender & Rebecca Ferguson in The Snowman, and Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin with Jason Isaacs & Steve Buscemi, and round off with some silliness about hotel slippers. Thanks for listening – get your reviews of these films in to firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros and we’ll feature them on next week’s show!
Are videogame adaptations the next big studio cash cow? We take a look at the state of the videogame film genre, covering box office winners & losers over the last 20 years and trying to figure out why none of them have so far avoided a ‘Rotten’ critical reception. Featuring detailed looks at Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil (2002) and Mark Wahlberg in Max Payne (2008), we also chat through other videogame franchises we’d like to see on the big screen. Stay tuned to the end for your emails & tweets, and keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening – and sorry it’s a day late this week!
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!
