How do you follow two hours of Tom Hanks screaming at a volleyball? This week on Beyond The Box Set, we’re pitching sequels to the 2000 survival epic Cast Away and asking the question – is Tom Hanks really a great actor, or do we just like him too much to care?

#19 | The Truman Show 2: The UnReal World
