We’re delving into sci-fi history on this week’s Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.

We all pitch in to review Blade Runner 2049, as Denis Villeneuve provides his take on the world of the 80s classic with Ryan Gosling joining a returning Harrison Ford. Meanwhile, Tom reviews the sentimental double feature of The Glass Castle, starring Brie Larson, and The Mountain Between Us, in which Idris Elba and Kate Winslet are stranded in the wilderness together.

We discuss the brand new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and ponder what it means for the future of the gargantuan space franchise. There’s also discussion of Sylvester Stallone signing on to direct Creed 2 and Gore Verbinski moving into the vacant Gambit director’s chair. We then finish with a genre-focused quiz.
