There’s love and exhaust fumes in the air on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review Edgar Wright‘s return to the world of cinema with the petrolhead heaven of Baby Driver, in which Ansel Elgort gets behind the wheel to tell a music-infused story of crime and adventure. Elsewhere, we take a look at the latest outing for Gru and the minions in animated threequel Despicable Me 3 and the dismal comedy The House, starring Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler.

In the news section, we discuss the newly released plot information for the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel and the news that Ryan Gosling may well be in the frame to play Willy Wonka in a prequel to the classic Roald Dahl story. Meanwhile, we chat about franchise expectations in the debate and Luke goes ten years back in time for the quiz.
