The Groundhog Show

June 8, 2020

In the current climate, every day can feel like a repeat. So we're kicking off a season dedicated to the feeling of perpetual deja vu - beginning with the Bill Murray classic that inspired the genre. Join us as we discuss manifest destiny, horrible 90s clothes and time warp logistics as we pitch sequels for Groundhog Day!

Each and every week on Beyond The Box Set, we compete to pitch sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring classic one-off movies back to the big screen. We've been rated as a binge-worthy listen by Apple Podcasts, recommended a Podcast of the Week by The Guardian and we've achieved five-star reviews from hundreds of global listeners.

Out of Sight 2: The Buddy System

February 24, 2020

The dust may have settled on this year's Oscar drama, but we're still not ready to let go of J.Lo's outrageous snub in Best Supporting Actress. So this week, we're going all the way back to one of most acclaimed breakout performances in 1998's steamy thriller Out of Sight.

Tune in to hear our thoughts on car boot meet cutes, Goldfish rights, George Clooney's questionable bank robbing strategy and more, plus drinking games, listener submissions and of course sequel pitches!

The Favourite 2: Blood Feud

The Favourite 2: Blood Feud

February 19, 2020

With all due respect to Glenn Close, Olivia Colman's surprise Best Actress win was one of the clear highlights of last year's Oscars. So, as the dust settles on this year's ceremony, we decided to revisit the film that made it all possible - Yorgos Lanthimos' delightfully odd historical romp The Favourite.

Tune in for our thoughts on tantrums, tiaras, towering wigs and much more as we pitch sequel ideas fit for a queen.

The Holiday 2: Daddy Issues

The Holiday 2: Daddy Issues

December 6, 2019

Like a warm plate of Christmas Fettuccine, The Holiday may not be the most nutritious festive treat on the market, but damn if it doesn't hit the spot, despite our best efforts at maintaining our cynicism...

Starring Cameron Diaz, Kate Winslet, Jude Law and Jack Black, Nancy Meyers' Atlantic-straddling hit exists in that strange Rom-Com fantasy world where money is no object, every house is either a beautifully isolated British cottage or a lavish L.A. mansion decorated with actual chandeliers and flying across the world at the drop of a hat requires no forward planning or adjustment of work/social schedules. 

In other words, it should be completely insufferable, but by some Christmas miracle we both found ourselves irresistibly drawn in. Tune into this week's podcast to hear our thoughts on dodgy British geography, the eerie physical perfection of Jude Law, knitwear porn and much more.

Bridesmaids 2: Maid of Honor

Bridesmaids 2: Maid of Honor

November 29, 2019

In a strange quirk of podcast timing, Harry found himself forced to watch three romantic comedies in as many days the week we recorded this episode. Will this have any bearing on his reaction to Bridesmaids, the Oscar-nominated 2011 smash from Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo? 

Tune into this week's edition of Beyond The Box Set to hear our thoughts on rom-com fatigue, unsupportive friends, swearing at teenagers, the comedy powerhouse that is Melissa McCarthy and much more, plus drinking games, sequel pitches and all the other regular features. You know the drill.

Clueless 2: High School Reunion

Clueless 2: High School Reunion

May 17, 2019

Deceptively smart and, like, totally quotable, Amy Heckerling's Clueless redefined the High School comedy genre in the mid 90s, paving the way for the likes of Mean Girls and Easy A. In this week's episode, returning guest Louise Ball joins us this week to pitch some totally bitchin' sequels...

Tune into this week's podcast to hear our thoughts on insane 90s fashion, Tai's questionable past, Christian's possible future as a serial killer and whether or not it's creepy to date your non-biological stepbrother. 

We also put together some frat party-friendly Clueless drinking games, essentially quote 90% of the dialogue and attempt to imagine what Cher, Dionne, Josh and the gang might be up to in 2019...

BONUS | Movies of 2018 Reviewed… With Sequels! (Part One)

January 2, 2019

In addition to pitching sequels to old films, we also watched a lot of new releases in 2018. So we thought we'd end the year with a look back at everything we caught at the cinema over the past 12 months, while also attempting to pitch some very quick sequel ideas for them. 

This was a very silly idea that turned into a literal all-nighter, so we've split the results into two parts. Here's part one, in which we ran down everything we saw between January and June. Spoilers abound, obviously!
