Film Actually News LogoHosts: David McVay & Richard Gray

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for May 13th, 2012. This week: The Avengers not real enough for the US military, Kick-Ass 2 might actually happen, Guillermo del Toro sign on yet another film, Millennium might be headed for the big screen, Shawarma sales are up and we even have a little time for an impromptu micro review of The Dictator. 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.
