Jordan Peele is scaring us stupid all over again on the latest Popcorn Muncher Podcast, hosted by Patrick Wilson, with Luke Stevenson and Tom Beasley – editor of The Popcorn Muncher.
This week’s big review is obviously Peele’s new nightmare fuel – doppelganger horror Us, in which Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke have to fight off malevolent doubles of them and their family. We also find time to chat about the Nureyev biopic The White Crow, directed by Ralph Fiennes, and the romantic teen weepie Five Feet Apart, which focuses on cystic fibrosis patients who bond in hospital.
In the news, we chat about the latest action-packed trailer for John Wick 3, reveal Angelina Jolie‘s involvement in the MCU and also discuss Maisie Williams‘s very forthright (and sweary) comments about what exactly is going on with The New Mutants. Finally, in the quiz, Tom asks two sets of questions based on dance movies and big screen doppelgangers.
