In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a high budget sequel, and Kevin Costner’s first box office disappointment.

The original Speed movie was lean, relatively modestly costed and a big, surprise hit. Speed 2 was pretty much the opposite – and its story ended up being reverse-engineered from a dream its director had.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
