this month at empire

IT’S MAY 2019, and we’re now living in a post-Avengers: Endgame world. As that particular film, we’re confidently assuming, goes on to make All The Money, it’s time for us all to ponder: what next? Stroke your beard / imaginary beard and ponder no longer, friends, as Empire has got you covered. Want to catch a cracking Australian film? Turns out we’ve got two this month in the form of Damon Gameau’s forward-looking environmental documentary 2040 and Miranda Tapsell’s charming rom-com Top End Wedding. Both are worth getting your butts to the cinema for; find them reviewed in our OnScreen section beginning page 25. Like your movies a little bigger and buffer? This month we pull out the guns with Keanu Reeves (buff-ish) in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum on page 40,…

DROP THE POLITICS I discovered Empire in 2002 and have been a subscriber ever since. I have a collection of posters of my favourite movies and have a copy of the 2013 ‘500 Greatest Movies’ edition on the bookshelf when I am looking for inspiration of what to watch. Maybe a year ago you started including a section called ‘The Agenda’, and I have noticed more and more left wing ideology creeping into the articles. One edition the whole article was about resisting Donald Trump for no apparent reason. I don’t care about Donald Trump, and I don’t care to read about him in a movie magazine. I have enjoyed your publication for years because I love movies. I go to the movies frequently, not because I’m necessarily excited to see…

letter of the month

Thanks so much for printing my letter in your latest edition (Empire #217, April). However upon re-reading it I discovered to my horror that I’d made the unforgivable blunder of stating that Superman rescued Lois Lane from the roof of the Daily Bugle, not, as it should be, the Daily Planet. Thank you for your trust, because to your credit, you printed my letter in its original form without double checking my facts, which, had I done so before hitting ‘send’, I would have realised that the Daily Bugle is the traditional stomping ground, or should I say, wall-crawling ground of that web-slinging Marvellous wonder, Spider-Man, and his photojournalist alter ego, Peter Parker. I hereby throw myself at your mercy, and shamefully untie the Superman tea-towel cape from my neck,…

the founding father

ONE OF THE greatest joys of Marvel Studios bringing Spider-Man into the MCU was seeing how well Peter Parker played with the superheroic grown-ups. But, much as we loved watching him take down Ant-Man in Civil War, or compare pop-culture notes with Star-Lord in Infinity War, what really captured our hearts were his scenes with newfound mentor (and suit-designer) Tony Stark. The absence of a reliable father figure in Peter’s life, and his difficulty holding on to the ones that appear, is a theme that’s been touched on repeatedly throughout the Spider-Man movies. Neither Norman Osborn nor Otto Octavius worked out in the first two Sam Raimi movies, but Tony filled the role admirably in Tom Holland’s three previous outings as the adolescent webslinger, not least by refusing to turn into…

look who’s tolkien

FINNISH FILMMAKER DOME Karukoski is a self-proclaimed Tolkien nerd. He first read The Hobbit aged 12, and still watches Peter Jackson’s The Lord Of The Rings film trilogy every Christmas. (“The extended versions,” he is careful to point out.) So when the opportunity came to direct a film about J.R.R. Tolkien’s early years, he leapt at the chance. “Peter Jackson did a wonderful job with those films,” he says. “But I am of the privileged generation who was able to read the books before the films came out. I have my own vision of what Mordor looks like. I tried to remember how I felt as a 12-year-old when I read the books and escaped into that world.” Tolkien, you see, doesn’t aim to be a conventional cradle-to-grave life story: it finishes…
