In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, a film designed to be something of a surprise, and a comedy that a major studio abandoned.

JJ Abrams joined forces with Steven Spielberg for Super 8, and the plan was to launch the trailer at least as a complete surprise. A successful plan too.

With Good Morning, Vietnam, there were doubts that Robin Williams could lead a movie of its ilk – and a special test was organised.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
