Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively play unlikely friends in A Simple Favour
Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively play unlikely friends in A Simple Favour

We ponder a series of bizarre genre hybrids on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

The first of our reviews is the strange gothic ghost story The Little Stranger, followed by the bona fide box office phenomenon Crazy Rich Asians. We also discuss Eli Roth‘s left turn into family-friendly filmmaking in The House With a Clock in Its Walls and the truly strange Paul Feig comedy-thriller A Simple Favour, which benefits from the potent chemistry between Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively.

The news section allows Tom to talk about the new Fantastic Beasts movie for the millionth time, while we also discuss Cary Fukunaga‘s new job as Bond director and the revelation that a third Kingsman movie is going to become a reality. In the quiz, Patrick leads us on a wild trawl through IMDb.
