Film Actually News 25-06-2012

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for June 25th, 2012. This week: Baywatch and Need for Speed head to the big screen, the trailers for Dredd & Taken 2 hit the web, Zimmer scores Man of Steel, Keanu directs, Charlie Sheen plays The President and Refn takes on Barbarella for the small screen. All this and much more!

Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Richard Gray

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.
