Diminishing Returns is a movie podcast about sequels, prequels, spin-offs and reboots hosted by Christopher Scott and Allen Johnston.
Each episode will explore the highs and lows of a film franchise separating the Godfather Part II’s from the… eh! Godfather Part III’s of the cinema world.
The podcast finally launches this month after a delayed production schedule. The final script punch ups are in and reshoots have been completed.
In the trailer you’ll hear The Diminishing Fanfare which is the show’s regular theme music, written and performed by Allen Johnston.
Along with some audio clips from the upcoming Dirty Harry: The Dead Pool, Grease 2 and Basic Instinct 2 episodes.
The second music cue is from the Vestron Video production logo, with additional production from Allen.
Episode 1 of Diminishing Returns is slated for release in the final week of June and will cover our round up of the Dirty Harry franchise and examine Clint Eastwood’s final outing as the character in 1988’s The Dead Pool, not to be confused with Marvel Studios’ 2016 release Deadpool, starring Ryan Reynolds.
Our logo was designed by Dave Turbitt of Dave Turbitt Designs.
