Edgar Wright returns with a much-hyped genre piece; but how does it drive? / does it get in gear? / does the pedal hit the metal? (You choose the driving pun there). Laurie also saw Japanese animated feature In This Corner of the World covering Hiroshima in the 1940s, and WWBW is back with James Cameron’s Avatar and Tony Scott’s Enemy of the State starring Will Smith. Phil has a Picture Perfect up his sleeve with the Moria staircase sequence from Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, and we go through your emails and tweets too.

Benedict was at Cannes 2017 this year and gives us the highs and lows of his festival experience – plus the big question everyone’s asking: how many beers did he share with Will Smith? Featured films include Visages Villages from Agnes Varda, You Were Never Really Here from Lynne Ramsay, The Killing of a Sacred Deer from Yorgos Lanthimos, Okja from Bong Joon Ho, Good Time with Robert Pattinson and even The Meyerowitz Stories from Noah Baumbach. Tune in for his thoughts and what to look out for this year – and give him a round of applause; he saw 27 films in the space of 10 days! An impressive feat in the sunshine of Southern France. Let us know your thoughts and opinions on email@example.com and @superbaileybros on Twitter.
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!
