We’re discussing major Oscar contenders on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Luke Stevenson, with Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review the Oscar frontrunner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which is Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh‘s spiky follow-up to In Bruges and Seven Psychopaths. There are also reviews of horror sequel Insidious: The Last Key and the awards season behemoth Darkest Hour, in which Gary Oldman is en route to winning every gong going with his work as Winston Churchill.

In the news section, we chat about the vague new plot summaries for Solo: A Star Wars Story and Avengers: Infinity War. We also discuss the new directing duo who are circling the Flashpoint movie and the latest trailer for Tomb Raider, in which Alicia Vikander plays Lara Croft.

In the final segment, Luke tries his hand at answering my questions about the cinema of 2017. If you manage to beat his score, tweet me at @Popcorn_Muncher with the optional hashtag #LukeSucks or #LukeSucksAndIBeatHim.
