#32 | A.I. Artificial Intelligence 2

Haley Joel Osment achieved peak creepiness in this divisive sci-fi fairytale from the combined minds of Steven Spielberg and Stanley Kubrick. But how does A.I. Artificial Intelligence hold up in 2017?

Join us as we brave traumatic face-melting, shameless emotional manipulation and many, many false endings to bring you some truly ludicrous sequel ideas, including an Orange Is The New Black-style TV show populated entirely by undesirable robots, and the A.I//TED crossover that nobody was waiting for...

Along the way we also invent some drinking games to help make that 146 minute runtime go by a little faster, discuss all the ways in which this movie got the future kind of right, but kind of wrong at the same time, and raise some very important questions about Jude Law's hairline...

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. If you like what we do, please hit subscribe for a new episode every Friday, and if you're feeling extra generous, please consider leaving us a review on your podcatcher of choice...

It's Jude Law... but as you've never seen him before! This week on Beyond The Box Set, we're pitching sequels to Dom Hemingway, a 2013 East End Crime Drama that makes some *very* interesting choices...

Join us as we discuss uncomfortable blow job scenes, memory game dialogue and Richard E. Grant's timeless fashion choices. If you're feeling particularly brave, you can also play along with our Dom Hemingway drinking game. Fun for all the family!

In the grand Beyond The Box Set Tradition, we also pitch our own fantasy sequels to the movie, this week including a Wizard of Oz style road trip that reunites Dom with some memorable characters from the original film, plus a TV miniseries that places our hero deep undercover on the streets of Moscow...

#26 | Strictly Ballroom 2: Hell Toupee

August 11, 2017

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.

Beyond The Box Set is a podcast in which we take classic standalone movies and compete to come up with the most ridiculous sequel, prequel or spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. If you like what we do, please hit subscribe and take a few minutes to write us a nice review. It’s not just to feed our fragile egos – it also really helps us to find new listeners too – honest!

#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.

#17 | Gone Girl 2: Bitches Be Crazy!

June 8, 2017
00:0000:00

Incompetent police work, bizarre casting and death by vagina – David Fincher’s Gone Girl is a movie that makes some choices. This week on Beyond The Box Set, John and Harry wade through the plot holes to pitch sequels for one of the most insane thrillers of recent years. Join us for an unlikely riff on 1950s camp classic ‘The Bad Seed’, an Amazing Amy lifetime movie starring a steroid-pumped Elijah Wood, plus a horrifying act of fictional feline abuse that almost breaks up the podcast…

Patty cake sex games, horrifying toon-on-toon violence and a traumatic act of Shoe-icide – Who Framed Roger Rabbit might me the most unlikely smash hit of the 80s.

#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…
