It’s all about war on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Luke Stevenson, with Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher. There are apes at war with humans, a strange drama in the midst of the American Civil War and Pixar being at war with its own high quality standards.

Our main review is Matt Reeves‘ soulful trilogy-closing blockbuster War for the Planet of the Apes, in which Andy Serkis gives perhaps his finest performance to date as ape leader Caesar. For more of our views on that film, you can also check out our special spoiler-filled podcast. We also review Sofia Coppola‘s historical drama The Beguiled and Pixar disappointment Cars 3.

In a packed news section, we say goodbye to horror legend George Romero and discuss how Deadpool became the BBFC’s most complained about film for 2016. We also discuss the first trailers for creature feature The Shape of Water and buzzed-about comedy The Disaster Artist.
