Is Interstellar Christopher Nolan’s funniest movie? This week on Beyond The Box Set, we’re joined by super fan Joe Timothy to pitch sequels to the time travel space epic that somehow makes room for a wisecracking robot and some unintentionally hilarious cameos…
Along the way, we debate NASA’s questionable training strategies, Anne Hathaway’s baby problem and whether a movie about wormholes and time travel is pushing credibility a little too far by expecting us to believe that Matthew McConaughey and Jessica Chastain are the same age…
As ever, once we’ve fully talked out the movie itself, we get down to business with some fantasy sequel ideas. This week’s pitches include a deep sleep entertainment program that finds Cooper and Brand playing through a virtual Christopher Nolan Greatest Hits, a tense psychological thriller with a Fight Club-esque twist and a crossover into a galaxy far, far away…
Every week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen.

You are tearing us apart, listeners! This week on Beyond The Box Set, we’re pitching sequels to a feature that’s more meme than movie – Tommy Wiseau’s baffling, brilliant The Room. Joined by super fan Sebastian Clark, we discuss the movie’s clear Shakespearean parallels, Lisa’s limitless capacity for evil, Denny’s major boundary issues and the character whose tragic arc brings John to tears mid-podcast.
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…

In our first ever Beyond The Box Set Guest episode, Ross Burton from Beer, Pizza & A Movie joins us to pitch sequels, prequels and spin-offs for Sergio Leone’s classic 1966 Spaghetti Western The Good, The Bad and the Ugly.
From a Zootopia crossover to a high school grave robbing comedy, by way of a thinly veiled dig at Star Wars Rogue One and other pointless prequels, after listening to this episode you’ll never hear that iconic Ennio Morricone score in quite the same way again…
