We talk about sentient potatoes and baffling make-up jobs on this week’s podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We review a number of awards season releases, including Adam McKay‘s political biopic Vice, in which Christian Bale becomes the controversial vice president Dick Cheney. There’s also chatter about Nicole Kidman‘s remarkable transformation in Destroyer and The Mule, which may well be Clint Eastwood‘s swansong as an actor.

In the news section, we delve into Black Panther‘s surprising victory at the SAG Awards, as well as the new trailer for Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs and Shaw and the news that Matt Reeves‘s take on Batman will arrive in 2021, with Ben Affleck replaced as the Caped Crusader. Finally, Tom leads a quiz about physical transformations and ageing actors.
