Entertainment journalist Leigh Livingstone and movie expert Tim Iffland review the newest film releases, plus break down the latest trailers and movie news. Bite-sized, moreish and a little salty – this is Popcorn Podcast with Leigh and Tim.
Special - Damian Keogh, Hoyts CEO
CEO of Hoyts Damian Keogh chats to Popcorn Podcast about the challenges facing the Australian film market in a tough year; how Hoyts is investing in movie fans to get us back to the big screens; and provides exciting insights into the groundbreaking new Hoyts location opening at Cronulla in NSW.
The Witches + The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart
The Witches is here! Leigh and Tim discuss Robert Zemeckis' take on the classic Roald Dahl story and the new Bee Gees documentary, How Can You Mend A Broken Heart. Plus, more on the Deadpool, Black Panther, and Predator sequels; Mads Mikkelsen steps into Fantastic Beasts; and the first look at Clifford The Big Red Dog causes a very large stir.
Misbehaviour is on the cards in this week's episode. Plus, Vin Diesel touches down in Australia; there's more casting news for The Suicide Squad; trailers for Chaos Walking and Tom and Jerry; and a big title reveal for Scream 5
Special - Jeremy Sims
Director Jeremy Sims talks to Popcorn Podcast about his new movie Rams, starring Sam Neill and Michael Caton as warring sheep-farmer brothers. Sims shares why the film is more than just a remake; what it was like to bring Neill and Caton together onscreen again; and why sheep are a metaphor for people.
Freaky + The Comeback Trail
It's a fun-filled episode as Leigh and Tim chat about Freaky and The Comeback Trail - two very different movies, both with killer casts. Plus, Gerard Butler signs on for a surprising sequel, we get first looks at Gunpowder Milkshake, Superintelligence and Wild Mountain Thyme, and there's an exciting ticket giveaway to see The Witches
Radioactive + Ellie And Abbie (And Ellie's Dead Aunt)
Leigh and Tim talk Radioactive, the story of extraordinary scientist Marie Curie, as well as feel-good Aussie flick Ellie & Abbie (& Ellie's Dead Aunt). Plus, Rams is a roaring (or baa-ing) success; the sequel we're pretty sure no one asked for; and Songbird hits a little close to the bone.
