About Us

What is Beyond the Box Set?

Beyond The Box Set is a movie podcast with a difference. Every week our two hosts take a classic standalone movie and compete to pitch the most ridiculous, sacrilegious and potentially unfilmable sequels, reboots and remakes we can imagine. Titanic as a Stoner comedy starring James Franco and Jonah Hill? Gladiator: The Musical? A Super Mario Bros sequel inspired by Suicide Squad? These are just some of the franchise extensions that nobody asked for and nobody in their right mind would ever commission…

A little bit about us:

Harry is a website developer by day, and unfortunately a website developer by night too… He’s writing this at 2am. So this website you’re looking at, it’s great right? Harry’s not needy, but he needs you to tell him it’s great. If you say anything else then… then… I don’t know. Don’t expect me to be creative at 2am! Also this writing in the 3rd person thing is stupid. This was a bad idea.

If he was stranded on a remote desert island that could somehow support a home cinema system, the three movies he would bring along would be Iron Man, Star Trek: First Contact and Tron: Legacy

John is a content marketing professional and freelance journalist. He is painfully aware that the former makes him the kind of person Bill Hicks used to write acerbic standup routines about, and the latter is the job title unemployed people put in their Twitter handle because they once got an unpaid listicle about the 7 best Ariana Grande GIFs of 2016 published on Buzzfeed.

If he was stranded on a remote desert island that could somehow support a home cinema system, the three movies he would bring along would be Muriel’s Wedding, The Little Mermaid and Far From Heaven.
