Brian Cox takes on the role of a British icon on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Luke Stevenson with Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review the heavyweight historical drama Churchill, as well as Gifted – in which Chris Evans stars as the guardian of a precocious youngster with a mathematical gift. There’s also discussion of a duo of documentaries, with Holocaust survivor stories in Destination Unknown and tales of stand-up comedians on the road in Dying Laughing.

In the news section, we discuss the shock sacking of the directors of the Han Solo spin-off movie, the plot details for upcoming sequel Godzilla 2 and Jessica Chastain‘s potential casting in X-Men: Dark Phoenix. Finally, inspired by Churchill, we run down our top five historical films.
