Allen and Chris ask, is Cavill giving up the cape? And what would the ghost of David Bowie sound like?

In between 'franchise' episodes (where we delve into a particular film or series of films) we'll be doing bonus episodes where we talk about wider trends in sequel culture, sequel news, new trailers and whatever the hell we like.

In this episode

-Rumours abound that Henry Cavill is no longer Superman

-The DCEU

-The Marc Maron/Diminishing Returns mash-up no one wanted

-The Ghost Of David Bowie

-Predators in Predator

-One of our Chinese Film Stars is Missing!

-And The Diminishing Returns Hall Of Fame

Allen and Chris strap on the studded gloves…..

1975’s Rollerball, directed by Norman Jewison and starring James Caan as the fictional sport’s superstar player Jonathan E, delivered not only action but a thoughtful examination of individuality and freedom.

Cut to 2002 and John McTiernan, director of Die Hard and Predator, two of the greatest action flicks ever, helms the remake. Surely this will, at the very least, deliver on visceral thrills….right?

In this episode

-the dumbest criticism of old movies

-James Caan: a manly man

-LL Cool J and American Pie: the college years

-The shadowy Rebecca Romijn–Stamos

-Jean Reno: the man behind the man, or something

-Nielson? BARB? Meet the new rating system that blows them out the water.
