There’s only one Rock-shaped show in town on the latest episode of the Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review Russian drama A Gentle Creature and limp Blumhouse horror Truth or Dare, but the only real attraction on the slate is Rampage. It’s a CGI-powered action spectacular in which the endlessly charismatic Dwayne Johnson struggles with the fact his best mate – an albino gorilla – has become a city-smashing monster under the influence of a substance designed to alter the DNA of living creatures.

In the news section, we chatter about the hiring of a new female director to join the DC Extended Universe and the sad deaths of Full Metal Jacket actor R Lee Ermey and double Oscar-winning director Milos Forman. To round the podcast off, Luke takes us a decade back in time for a quiz pitting Twilight against The Dark Knight.
