#40 | Shaun of The Walking Dead

November 17, 2017

Rumours of an official 'Shaun of the Dead' sequel were sadly recently scotched by creators Simon Pegg and Edgar Wright, so we decided to come up with a few of our own!

This week, John and Harry are joined by horror movie super-fan Ady Wheatley to discuss vampire strippers, zombie sex dreams and all things Brit-Rom-Zom-Com!

#30 | Me Before You 2: Hell on Wheels

September 7, 2017

What woman doesn’t dream of falling for a paraplegic millionaire with six months to live? This week on Beyond The Box Set, we’re pitching sequels to ‘Me Before You’, the controversial 2016 hit based on the novel by JoJo Moyes, which we found to have some very strange messages about disability and assisted suicide.

Join us as we discuss how easily this movie could be re-edited to turn romantic lead Sam Claflin into the villain, why Emilia Clarke’s eyebrows deserve supporting cast credit and whether this is actually the whitest movie we’ve covered on our podcast so far…

As ever, the second half of our show involves us exploring our own fantasy sequel ideas for the movie, which this week include a second chance for Matthew ‘Neville Longbottom’ Lewis to win Louisa back and a Disney musical retelling inspired by our revelation that this film is basically Beauty & The Beast with fewer sympathetic characters.

Every week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to come up with the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. You can find us on all major Podcasting platforms and most social media channels.

#26 | Strictly Ballroom 2: Hell Toupee

August 11, 2017
00:0000:00

It was the cult Australian rom-com that launched a worldwide reality TV phenomenon. This week on Beyond The Box Set, we’re joined by Ellie Chalkley – host of the Keep Dancing podcast – to help us pitch sequels to Baz Luhrmann’s Strictly Ballroom.

Join us as we discuss the fabulously tragic glamour of regional ballroom championships, the perils of 90s fake tan and whether Bill Hunter’s wig in this movie may actually have been possessed of a demon…

As always, we’re also on hand with a selection of weird and wonderful sequel ideas, including an All Star Ballroom Championship that rapidly descends into violent bloodshed, a reality TV reunion that finally gives Fran the happy ending she deserves and a… questionably related sequel that somehow incorporates The Lion King and the birth of The Simpsons.

#22 | Scott Pilgrim vs. Addiction

July 14, 2017
00:0000:00

Does Edgar Wright have a woman problem? As his new movie Baby Driver lands in cinemas, John and Harry revisit Scott Pilgrim vs The World and are left with very mixed opinions about the Cornetto Trilogy director’s first American movie.

From Michael Cera’s leading man credentials to Brandon Routh’s highly questionable wig work, this movie left us with plenty to talk about – and that’s before we get to our fantasy sequel ideas, featuring a Western remake and a chilling drug-fuelled Trainspotting crossover.

Each week on Beyond The Box Set we take a classic standalone movie and compete to come up with the best, worst and weirdest sequel, prequel and spin-off concepts to bring them back to the big screen.

#14 | Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

May 19, 2017
00:0000:00

A poignant exploration of love and the nature of memory, the romance between Joel and Clementine in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind might just be too lovely to taint with our trademark brand of silly sequel ideas. The deeply creepy central premise and side characters on the other hand…

#13 | Swiss Army Man

May 12, 2017
00:0000:00

Not many people actually saw this unexpectedly sweet gay necrophiliac love story, but we liked it so much we decided to come up with some sequel ideas. Obviously Daniel Radcliffe being in it means our ideas are mostly just Harry Potter jokes, but who among us wouldn’t want to see JK Rowling’s boy who lived reimagined as a flatulent corpse?

#7 | 50 First Dates or 50 Waking Nightmares?

March 30, 2017
00:0000:00

Is 50 First Dates a charming romantic comedy or the chilling tale of an abusive manchild manipulating a severely mentally ill woman into falling in love with him? We had mixed opinions on this 2004 Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore vehicle, but its bizarre tonal shifts did provide a surprisingly rich source of potential sequel ideas. Join us as we dig far deeper into the internal logic of this movie than anyone involved in its creation ever did…
