As is the tradition, we also pitch our own sequel ideas for the film, including a Gosford Park-style period remake, a reincarnated Johnny’s quest for revenge and a surprise Westworld crossover revealing that – spoiler alert! – the cast and crew were actually robots the whole time. Which, let’s face it, would certainly explain the acting…

It’s the best film about dream invasion since Nightmare on Elm Street 3 – this week on Beyond The Box Set we’re pitching sequel ideas for Christopher Nolan’s 2010 sci-fi smash Inception.
