WWII romance, comedy and drama ahoy for Laurie in Lone Scherfig’s Their Finest, starring Gemma Arterton and Bill Nighy. Phil tucks into an oddly compelling erotic mystery in Park Chan-wook’s The Handmaiden, and Benedict fills us in on an experimental coming-of-age slash vampire horror flick with Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration. WWBW features Karl Urban in Pete Travis’ reboot Dredd, as well as Chris Pine and co. in Justin Lin’s Star Trek Beyond. Take a breath! We also have a special ‘Ask Benedict’ section where we fling a couple of Benedict and/or horror related emails at our horror correspondent, Benedict Seal. Thanks for listening!

Oscar season is well & truly here with two major contenders. Laurie saw Pablo Larraín’s unusual biopic of JFK’s First Lady starring Natalie Portman, and Phil saw Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester by the Sea with the much-nominated Casey Affleck front and centre. We also welcome new horror correspondent Benedict Seal to the show for The Bye Bye Man and Laurie managed to squeeze in Ben Affleck’s Boston gangster epic Live By Night too. Big show this week! Listen out for your tweets & emails during the show, and keep them coming at firstname.lastname@example.org and @superbaileybros. Thanks for listening!
Has Simon Pegg saved the new Star Trek? Find out what we made of his final frontier! Laurie saw Steven Spielberg’s take on The BFG, Roald Dahl’s fantastical adventure that previously defied SFX capabilities; how does it fare? We also rattle through some best/worst acted laughs on screen and delve right into your tweets & emails, with a bit of time spent on Paul Feig & Melissa McCarthy’s Spy too.
