Hosts: David McVay & Josh Philpott

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for March 25th, 2012. This week Midnight Run 2, more on the Turtles from space controversy, Clerks: The Animated Series might come back to TV, a new Prometheus TV spot and Tarsem Singh does a war film. All this 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.
