    The Fall and Rise of Super Mario Bros.

    The Fall and Rise of Super Mario Bros.

    How did they make a movie out of Super Mario Bros, and why did it not really resemble the game it was based on? This episode tells the story of how Super Mario Bros went down, and how an alternate cut was found, restored — and released online this year.
    SMB screenwriter Parker Bennett, along with the curators of the Super Mario Bros archive, Ryan Hoss and Steven Applebaum, help tell this story of a maligned, misguided movie that now has cult status and genuine love.
    We also recount the time Dennis Hopper lost it.

    How Grizzly II: Revenge Was Released After 37 Years

    How Grizzly II: Revenge Was Released After 37 Years

    The 1983 horror movie Grizzly II: Revenge boasts a cast that includes George Clooney, Laura Dern, and Charlie Sheen. But it may never have been released if not for Hungarian producer Suzanne C. Nagy, who finally made it available to audiences after 37 years.
    On the latest episode of The Industry, host Dan Delgado interviews Nagy, the original producer of Grizzly II: Revenge. A sequel to the popular 1976 film Grizzly, which cashed in on the post-Jaws killer animal craze, Grizzly II: Revenge follows the story of a mama bear who attacks a large rock concert to take out her rage towards the poachers who killed her cub.

    One Man's Quest to Fix Superman IV

    One Man's Quest to Fix Superman IV

    Like many Superman fans, British actor Aaron Price grew up believing a man could fly — thanks to the spectacular 1978 Richard Donner film starring Christopher Reeve as the Man of Steel.
    But a decade after that film, Superman IV arrived to challenge fans' faith with a rough, budget-challenged story that pitted Supes against Nuclear Man, a forgettable villain created vis-a-vis the Cold War arms race.
    Still, Price believes the film is redeemable — and in this special bonus episode of The Industry, he explains how he is trying to restore director Sydney J. Furie's original vision for Reeve's final Superman film.

    Harold Lloyd's Last Film — With Preston Sturges and Howard Hughes

    Harold Lloyd's Last Film — With Preston Sturges and Howard Hughes

    Preston Sturges was so desperate to direct that he sold one of his scripts for $10 — then persuaded silent film and talkie star Harold Lloyd to star.
    This is a story that includes Howard Hughes, a secret tunnel to the Chateau Marmont, and some very funny insights by Sturges' son, Tom Sturges.
    It also notes the amusing similarities between 1947's The Sin of Harold Diddlebock, which has some interesting parallels with Todd Phillips massive 2009 hit The Hangover.

    On this special crossover episode of MovieMaker and The Industry, Dan talks about his VHS-shaped 1980s childhood, and how it led him to create the curious world of The Industry.

    Pacino! Chinatown 2! Spider-Man! The High-Water Mark of Cannon Films

    Pacino! Chinatown 2! Spider-Man! The High-Water Mark of Cannon Films

    At the 1986 Cannes Film Festival, the impresarios of Cannon Films — best known for movies like Superman IV and Over the Top — showed up on the scene in matching tracksuits, with a grand vision.
    They announced their slate of movies for the next year or so. And while the majors were being lazy with their 15 or so movies a year, Cannon's announcement was for a jaw-dropping 60 films. Sixty!
    Many of the films got made. But plenty of them didn't. The movies were to star Al Pacino, John Travolta, Walter Matthau, Whoopi Goldberg, and more, and involve creators like Paul Schrader and Roman Polanski. 
    There were also big plans for a Spider-Man film, years before the hit Sam Raimi films starring Tobey Maguire as the web-slinger.
    So what happened? We explain on this episode of the industry.
