BIRTHDAYS HAVE ALWAYS been a great excuse to get your friends together for a knees-up where ill-advised amounts of cake and/or alcohol are consumed until someone (usually) pukes. This year Empire hits the big 3-0 (the UK edition kicked off in July 1989; Empire Australia debuted in January 2001, meaning this year marks our 18th – hooray, we’re now of legal age!), and as is befitting a milestone birthday, we’re assembling some (#humblebrag) famous friends for a celebration. A myriad of iconic filmmakers will be stopping by throughout 2019 to party with Empire, starting with the none-more-iconic James Cameron. In this issue you’ll find him answering readers’ questions (page 56), talking about his illustrious career and busy future (a Terminator requel! Many, many Avatar sequels!) and hear from his long-time collaborator, producer…

YOU’VE GOT A FAN IN ME Dear Empire, I have been obsessed with movies for as long as I can remember, from the first movie I ever watched (Sleeping Beauty) to the latest (Truth Or Dare, which I highly regret watching). I first discovered Empire in January of 2018, when my family were on our annual holiday. We were on our way back home, which is a three-and-a-half hour drive, and I needed something to occupy me so I went into a newsagent and asked if there were any film magazines. The lady there walked me over to a large section of film magazines and I saw the most beautiful creation ever! A magazine titled Empire, with Black Panther on the front cover. I was thrilled! I have now read that…

to hell and back

“I LIKE A challenge,” grins Neil Marshall. “Maybe I’m just a sucker for punishment.” Hellboy’s legacy is almost as intimidating as his horns. The blood-red half-demon, having been birthed in comic form by creator Mike Mignola, starred in two beloved films by Guillermo del Toro, but a long-awaited third fizzled out. Around 2014, plans arose to reboot the beast, and Marshall, the British director of The Descent and Dog Soldiers, was chosen to nurture him back. “It’s a tough act to follow,” he tells Empire of taking over from del Toro. Marshall contacted the monster master to get his blessing. “I didn’t want to step on his toes or get his nose out of joint. So I got in touch and said, ‘This is something very, very different and I want…

once a time upon in westeros

1 __ THE LONG NIGHT This was the pilot title apparently leaked by George R.R. Martin himself (and quickly denied by HBO), which refers to the cataclysmic lifelong winter that descended upon his world around 6-8,000 years before the events of Game Of Thrones. That would place the prequel show in a suitably tumultuous time of Westerosi legend, a kind of murky pre-historical period that gives showrunner Jane Goldman plenty of room to flex her creative muscles. 2 __ THE ARRIVAL OF THE OTHERS HBO’s official log line mentions “the true origin of the White Walkers”, aka the Others, who swarmed southward from the Lands Of Always Winter and invaded Westeros during The Long Night. As we know from the last season of Thrones, the White Walkers were created by ancient forest people…

ten things you need to know about... joker

1 __The Clown Prince Of Crime is back. Joaquin Phoenix, donning the green hair and perma-grin for a film simply titled Joker, says it was the uniqueness of the project that appealed it to him. “It is its own world,” Phoenix told Collider about the project. “And mostly, it scares the fucking shit out of me.” 2 __Warner Bros. has described the film as an “original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen”, a “gritty character study”, and a “broader cautionary tale”. It’s set in the 1980s, which suggests it is inspired by Batman: The Killing Joke, the 1988 graphic novel by Alan Moore which explains how the Joker went from failed stand-up comedian to mayhem-loving psychopath. 3 __This film is not part of DCEU continuity. Variety reported in June…

days of thunder

LUNCH WITH STAN Lee was a journey into a hyperspace of fame. First you pass through his version of Beatlemania. He was cheerfully mobbed as the pair of us strolled through Beverly Hills together. Car horns toot, all ages smile and genuflect, selfies are numerous and borne by the great man with an insouciant twinkle. Then into the restaurant where the hard-nosed masters of the movie universe step aside to kiss the ring and allow Stan to be ushered to his favourite corner table, where he sees all and is gazed upon by all. I was there to quiz him about the history of Thor, which I was to direct for Marvel Studios. He was there to tease me about having blagged the job because, as a so-called Shakespearean, I was the…
