There’s a chance for the Ocean’s 8 gang to steal a good review on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

The reviews section starts with quick reviews of fashion documentary McQueen and biopic The Happy Prince, in which Rupert Everett plays Oscar Wilde in the final years of his life. We also take on the gender-flipped remake of problematic 80s comedy Overboard and the new heist caper Ocean’s 8, which creates a criminal dream team including the likes of Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett, seeking to nab a priceless diamond necklace from the neck of Anne Hathaway.

This week’s movie news starts with a look at the new trailer for Shane Black‘s take on The Predator, as well as a discussion about the issue that have led the new Indiana Jones movie to be delayed for rewrites. Finally, we sigh heavily at the news that Jared Leto is going to play a vampire anti-hero in a new Spider-Man spin-off for Sony. Then, finally, Patrick finishes the show off with a quiz.
