We've also got drinking games, listener reviews and of course our sequel pitches. Think you've got a better idea? Find us on social media and let us know! -----
Every week on Beyond The Box Set, we take a classic standalone movie, dissect the plot and compete to pitch the most ridiculous prequel, sequel or spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
