Charlie Hunnam takes on an iconic hero role in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

Swords and sandals meet grit and geezers on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We discuss Guy Ritchie‘s bizarre new take on Arthurian legend in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, in which Charlie Hunnam is the man to wield Excalibur. Elsewhere, Anne Hathaway stars in the strange romantic-comedy-sci-fi-drama Colossal and Amy Schumer entices Goldie Hawn back to the big screen with comedy kidnap tale Snatched.

In the news, we say goodbye to Bond legend Roger Moore, who died this week. We also chat about the launch of Universal’s new Dark Universe, which will begin with The Mummy this month, and GLAAD’s decision to hand a failing grade to several of the main Hollywood studios. We debate the legacy of La La Land in the pantheon of the musical genre and Patrick leads a quiz based on the work of Guy Ritchie.
