In this episode of Film Stories with Simon Brew, two films that were released in unusual times for the pair of them!

1990’s The Hunt For Red October is a cold war thriller, that landed as the Cold War was thawing. It had a different problem too: a week or two into filming, its leading man needed very quick replacing – and a fax went over to Sean Connery…

The idea of bringing together Godzilla and King Kong for a movie together meanwhile led to a bit of studio jostling – and then, of course, when Godzilla Vs Kong finally landed, a global pandemic had significantly changed Warner Bros’ release strategy.
