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 Birdcage 2: Starina Rides Again

Put simply, 'The Birdcage' is one of the funniest movies ever made. Yes, it's a remake of the much-loved French classic La cage aux folles, but it's elevated above standard remake fare by inspired casting across the board and a strong emotional centre in the midst of all the camp farce. 

A sequel without Robin Williams is obviously almost impossible to imagine, but we did find ourselves wondering how Nathan Lane's flamboyant Albert would cope with the loss of his remarkably patient life partner. Not to mention the tantalising/terrifying notion of how Agador Spartacus' personal style might have evolved as he entered his mid-fifties... 

-----

Every week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen. Sometimes they're completely ridiculous, other times they're strangely inspired, but either way they're guaranteed to out a new perspective on some of your favourite movies. 

Our show is available on all good podcasting platforms, including iTunes, Spotify, aCast and Google Play. You can also sign up to our Patreon for as little as $2 per month to access a wide range of bonus content, including our exclusive spin-off show Beyond BTBS, a regular promo slot and the opportunity to choose a film for us to cover on a future episode.
