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 email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
Six older films to watch or avoid this week in a WWBW special. Laurie tackles Mark Wahlberg’s Shooter (2007), Paul Verhoeven’s original RoboCop (1987) & bizarre Brendan Fraser rocker/slacker comedy Airheads (1994). Phil covers Quentin Taratino’s True Romance (1993), Austin Powers in Goldmember (2002) with Beyoncé Knowles & indie sci-fi flick Circle (2015). We also discuss the news that Colin Trevorrow has been dropped from Star Wars Episode IX, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Twitter meltdown leads us into the relationship between filmmakers and film critics. And we go through some of your emails and tweets too. Loads of stuff! Stay in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
So much to say! Michael Bay directs the 5th (and last?) robots-in-disguise film, Transformers: The Last Knight, while we also cover Chris Evans in Gifted and Luke Wilson in animated feature Rock Dog. Two big movie news stories make the cut, with Daniel Day-Lewis‘s shock retirement, and Disney cutting ties with acclaimed directing duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller. WWBW has The Sweetest Thing (2002) and Thor: The Dark World (2013), and we also cram in some Movie Love/Hate thoughts on elderly characters, on top of all your emails and tweets. Big show!
