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!
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 email@example.com and @superbaileybros – and thanks for listening!
Alec Baldwin puts his aging babyface to good use (sort of!) as he voices Dreamworks’ Boss Baby, and Phil tells us how it all shakes down. Laurie saw Ben Wheatley’s quirky action shooter Free Fire with Brie Larson, and Riz Ahmed swapping space pilot’s goggles for gritty PI cigarettes in Pete Travis’ City of Tiny Lights. And WWBW comes back with 2 Weeks’ Notice & I Wish. Phew – so much good stuff this week! Keep your emails & tweets coming at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros.
