Beyond The Box Set

The Prestige 2: Smoke & Mirrors

May 11, 2020

Warring magicians, mind-bending plot twists and wandering accents galore - we're back in Christopher Nolan territory this week as we pitch sequels to THE PRESTIGE, a mind-bending thriller starring Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman...

Tune in as we share our thoughts on cat cloning, unconvincing disguises, what we'd do if we had our own identical doubles and much more - plus drinking games, listener submissions and sequel pitches. 


Beyond The Box Set is a tribute to standalone cinema with a creative twist. Each week, we take a look back at a notable one-off movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous sequels, prequels and spin-offs to bring them back to the big screen. We've recorded over 160 episodes, so find a film you love and dive in to discover a new twist on some old favourites...
