Beyond The Box Set

250 EpisodesProduced by Harry Chappell & John LucasWebsite

At Beyond The Box Set, we believe every great movie deserves a questionable sequel. Each week, we take a stand-alone cinema classic and compete to come up with the best, worst and most bizarre pitches to bring them back to the big screen.

Strictly Ballroom 2: Hell Toupee

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!
