It’s all about Avengers: Age of Ultron this week, dear listeners! We talk about it, we have a spoiler section for it, and after the show is over we think of lots of clever and interesting things we didn’t say about it.

Ahh, well… happens every time!

We also talk TV with Better Call Saul and Daredevil and discuss a bet that Pete made with friend of the show James Croft over what order the tentpole blockbusters will rank in the box-office take this year. And even though we don’t normally go into marketing and stuff in much depth, we couldn’t help but talk about the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Jurassic World and Mad Max: Fury Road.

For homework, we have the Elizabeth Olsen-starring films Martha Marcy May Marlene and Liberal Arts. And the opposite of homework is Stranded, starring Christian Slater. Do not watch this film. You have been warned.

Finally, Pete hooks us up with a clip from an FX house that decided to re-colourise the bleached palette of Man of Steel. Looks like the added some more fun if you ask me!

So get to the cinema early with Pete and Justin so we can collectively notice that franchise titles sure do go nuts on the colons, don’t they? And they’re all franchise movies now, aren’t they? And movie trailers sure are full of percussion these days, am I wrong? And the popcorn and choc-tops? That’s how they get you.
