There are Nazi zombies, criminal women and a green-haired Christmas hater on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review Steve McQueen‘s stylish heist thriller Widows, in which Viola Davis leads a badass team of crooks, and the Netflix historical epic Outlaw King, starring Chris Pine as Robert the Bruce. There’s also time to chat about the bonkers Nazi zombie horror Overlord and the new take on The Grinch from Illumination, in which Benedict Cumberbatch portrays the classic curmudgeon.

In the news, we wave a sad farewell to Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, who passed away this week at the age of 95. We also discuss the very strange first trailers for Toy Story 4 and Detective Pikachu, bringing the childhoods of millennials back into the cinema. Finally, Luke takes us 20 years back in time for the quiz.
