In the new episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that both struggled to fully find their audience.

The Iron Giant was quickly regarded as a modern masterpiece. But Brad Bird’s directorial debut was made as Warner Bros was shutting down hand drawn feature animation – and the film was only given a release date very late.

The A-Team meanwhile was in development for a good decade at 20th Century Fox before making it to the screen. And it faced some uphill battles of its own.

Stories of both are told in this episode.
