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 firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros on Twitter. Thanks for listening!
Is the pairing of Ryan Reynolds & Samuel L. Jackson buddy comedy lightning-in-a-bottle? Find out what Phil and Laurie thought of The Hitman’s Bodyguard. We also chat about Daniel Craig’s recent confirmation that he will be returning as James Bond, after much tedious speculation that Tom Hiddleston might take up the mantle, which let’s be honest, was never going to happen. Laurie’s What We’ve Been Watching films cover Richard Linklater’s A Scanner Darkly with Keanu Reeves and a rewatch of Finding Dory, and Phil gives his late thoughts to Captain Fantastic & Paterson. Thanks so much for your emails and tweets, we love getting them and reading them out on the show! Keep them coming to email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
“Happy Birthday, Noam Chomsky, Happy Birthday to you!” – Perhaps in your family it’s not humanist philosopher Noam Chomsky who gets his own day, but every right-thinking family surely takes time to celebrate the life of a radical thinker each year – right?
