Steven Soderbergh returns from a 4-year retirement to direct his self-admitted ‘anti-glam’ Ocean’s 11 in Logan Lucky, with Channing Tatum, Adam Driver & Daniel Craig – is it worth a watch? Laurie went to see it, and also caught Tom Cruise trying something a little different in Doug Liman’s based-on-real-events drug story American Made. We take a brief look at Ewan McGregor’s career and touch on the announced Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars feature, and Phil takes us through Nora Ephron’s comedy-lifestyle flick Julie & Julia, with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Check out the Dunkirk special for our in-depth review of Christopher Nolan’s latest epic, as well as all your emails and tweets on it. Thanks for listening!

The gas-guzzling franchise returns for more ridiculous action fun, but has it finally jumped the shark? Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson & Charlize Theron put the pedal to the metal.
