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.
In the 100th episode of Popcorn Podcast, Leigh and Tim discuss Penguin Bloom - a moving Australian film about hope and healing starring Naomi Watts as Sam Bloom. Plus, who will headline the Willy Wonka prequel? And there's more movement across the 2021 release schedule.
