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.

The Fisher King 2: Back In The Straitjacket

After Absolutely Anything proved to be absolutely abysmal, we decided we needed to look at a better representation of Robin Williams' talents. The Fisher King is his 1992 collaboration with director Terry Gilliam, and it scored him an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

Tune into this week's podcast to hear our thoughts on Jeff Bridges titanium-plated likability, Mercedes Ruehl's scene-stealing performance, the golden era of VHS rental stores, the thin line between love and stalking and much more...


Each week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a look back at a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
