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.

Dreamgirls 2: Divas Reunited

Originating as a hit Broadway stage show, Dreamgirls tells the story of a popular sixties girl group who bear a striking - but entirely coincidental - resemblance to The Supremes. The film version starred Beyonce in the Diana Ross role, but it was former American Idol alumni Jennifer Hudson who stole the show, winning an Oscar in the process.

In this week's episode, we discuss our highlights - including Eddie Murphy channelling James Brown, RnB songs clearly written by middle-aged white people and a whole lot of vocal showboating.

We also brainstorm some drinking games, check in with our listeners and pitch sequel ideas to bring the movie back to the big screen. Because after all - you can't keep a good diva down! 


Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast with a twist. Each week we take a look at a well-known standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
