It’s a new year and there are loads of new movies on the Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review three of the newest cinema releases for the New Year, starting with the fantasy drama A Monster Calls. We also discuss Martin Scorsese‘s contemplative religious epic Silence and the latest attempt to crack a video game adaptation – the bombastic mess that is Assassin’s Creed.

In the news section, we discuss the bizarre and terrible idea of introducing a ‘theatre mode‘ for its Apple phones and the interesting casting of Woody Harrelson in the upcoming Star Wars spin-off focused on Han Solo. We pick out some of the stranger choices in our best films of 2016 and Luke quizzes us about films that were released a decade ago.
