Two very different action men battle it out on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Luke Stevenson with Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review differing approaches to fisticuffs in two major releases. First, Jamie Foxx gets serious in the casino-set conspiracy cop thriller Sleepless and then Julian Barratt gets very silly indeed as he runs around the Isle of Man in a silly wig in lo-fi spoof Mindhorn. We also review the cutesy drama A Dog’s Purpose and, in honour of that film, list our top five dogs in movies.

In the news section, we dissect the first full trailer for sci-fi sequel Blade Runner 2049, as well as the news that a new reboot of the Hellboy franchise is on the cards and that Hugh Bonneville will play Roald Dahl in an upcoming biopic.
