Here at Beyond the Box Set, we're putting a creative twist on the movie podcast format. Each week, we watch a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. It may not be perfection, but it's a lot of fun - and we might even change the way you look at your favourite movie!
