Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt find love in space on the new Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We talk in detail about the disastrous sci-fi romance Passengers, which is one of the year’s most misogynistic movies, and then chat about the rather mediocre romcom Why Him?, which somehow manages to be another lazy Christmas-set film.

In the news, we say goodbye to Carrie Fisher and discuss the trailer for Alien: Covenant. We also take a look back at the best and worst of 2016, including a banner year for animation and some cracking under the radar releases you may not have seen.
