An absent host eventually makes his return on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

There’s a trio of reviews as we chat about the truly bizarre DreamWorks animated comedy The Boss Baby, in which Alec Baldwin plays an infant interloper who arrives in his reluctant sibling’s home wearing a suit. We also discuss the French cannibal horror movie Raw and Tom tries to unpick his views about the widely-panned wedding comedy Table 19, starring Anna Kendrick.

In the news section, we chat about the two big trailers of the week – for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Thor: Ragnarok. We also discuss the casting of Jude Law as the young Dumbledore in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and debate whether the Disney live-action remakes are superior to the animated originals. Finally, in the quiz, we test our knowledge of Marvel’s heroes and villains.

To mark the first anniversary of the podcast a few weeks ago, we created a trio of bingo cards so you can play along with our podcast in-jokes and quirks. Let us know in the comments if you’ve had a go!
