There’s a packed and varied array of films on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

Tom talks about his love for British romance God’s Own Country and the Gothic Victorian mystery thriller The Limehouse Golem. We also discuss American Made, in which Tom Cruise is a pilot playing both sides of the war on drugs, and underdog music tale Patti Cake$ about an aspiring rapper working her way up through the hip-hop scene in New Jersey.

Director shake-ups are the topic of the news section, where we chat about Colin Trevorrow‘s departure from the Star Wars franchise and Gavin O’Connor‘s hiring as the director of superhero sequel Suicide Squad 2. We debate whether adaptations can ever match their original source material and Tom leads a genre-based quiz.
