Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Richard Gray

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for March 5th, 2012. This week the first Prometheus viral video hits the web, Ralph McQuarrie dies, Russell Crowe might be Noah, Jason Segel says no to The Muppets 2, The Lone Ranger actually starts shooting, a new trailer for The Avengers and much, much more!

What used to be a boring, stuffy film section of the Film Actually podcast has been spun off into it’s own, we hope, more entertaining show. We don’t make the news, we just have fun with it. Film Actually News - Loud, Fast and Under Thirty Minutes… or your money back.
