We’re rounding up the last few films of 2018 on this week’s podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We start the reviews portion of the show with a look at Yorgos Lanthimos‘s scabrous royal comedy The Favourite, before moving on to a duo of festive blockbusters. First, it’s Travis Knight‘s Transformers prequel Bumblebee and then Mary Poppins Returns, in which Emily Blunt steps into the iconic hat and coat of cinema’s most memorable nanny.

The news section starts with discussion of the first trailer for UsJordan Peele‘s Christmas present to the world – and then move on to chat about the shortlist for the EE BAFTA Rising Star Award, as well as the nominations for the PGA Awards.
