Of all the singers who branched out into acting in the 90s, few nailed the cross-promotional opportunities as successfully as Whitney Houston. Not only was The Bodyguard an enormous box office hit, it also spawned the defining song of her career in I Will Always Love You.

On this week's podcast, we react to the original film and give our thoughts on reed herrings, clunky cameos, the inexplicable appeal of Kevin Costner and much more - plus drinking games, listener submissions and, of course, sequel pitches!

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.
