In this episode, Bridgett and Sarah discuss the first film in the How To Train Your Dragon Franchise. Our hosts discuss the impeccable world-building, the stacked cast, and gush for a justifiable amount of time over the cuteness of Toothless, our beautiful little boy. This starts a new trilogy for the Shooters™, so look for the How To Train Your Dr…
 
This week's Empire Podcast sees Chris Hewitt have two fascinating natters with two very different directors: first, Jordan Peele talks about his mysterious third movie, Nope (which gets a big Yep from us), and anoints Chris as the new Oprah Winfrey (you'll have to listen for it to make some kind of sense), and then Ari Folman, the director of Waltz…
 
A Pick the Flick episode of Frame Rate! This means one of our patrons, specifically Krischanovich, generously donated through the Pick the Flick tier and got to choose what we watched! This episode covers the 2005 film by Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko): Southland Tales. A film with an outstanding cast, a lot of big ideas, and some really rough dialog…
 
Our three co-hosts are stuck in the multiverse and need to get back to their home universe. Clearly, the only way to do that is to explore our cultural obsession with multiverses, alternate timelines and parallel worlds, and tie it all into a conversation about post-modern art, pop culture, and the lessons these stories teach us. Also, each episode…
 
We've got Predator on our minds this week on the Empire Podcast. Which makes a change. Not only do we review Dan Trachtenberg's Prey, his prequel to John McTiernan's 1987 action classic, but Chris Hewitt sits down with that film's star, Amber Midthunder, for a fun interview in which they discuss how Amber, whose parents are an actor and a casting d…
 
Adam and Abe talk about how Sam Raimi’s Spiderman creates a visual system where the audience subtly learns who we’re looking at: Spiderman or Peter Parker. We go through his camera techniques and look into how the invisible hand of directing works.Features:Abe Epperson: https://twitter.com/AbeTheMightyAdam Ganser: https://twitter.com/therealganzSup…
 
A Pick the Flick episode of Frame Rate! This means one of our patrons, specifically Nikolai G, generously donated through the Pick the Flick tier and got to choose what we watched! This episode covers the 1998 heist film Ronin. A film about a team of ex-military mercenaries enlisted by some Irish people to find a briefcase. We compare it to modern …
 
Next week sees the release of David Leitch's latest action movie, Bullet Train, which we're confidently told is not a sequel to The Railway Children Return. Instead, it stars Brad Pitt as an assassin on board a Japanese bullet train, who gets mixed up with a colourful cast of fellow hitpeople, not all of whom have his best interests at heart. Two o…
 
This show goes over the short stories of Michael’s favorite speculative fiction author and notable curmudgeon Harlan Ellison. Each episode Michael pairs (read: forces a friend to read) a short story with a guest that it “applies especially to.” This episode it’s the short story “The Man Who Rowed Christopher Columbus Ashore” and the guest is Alebre…
 
Nature is healing. How do we know? Because Saturday saw Kevin Feige and some of his amazing friends return to Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con to announce a ton of exciting news about the future of the MCU, including the first trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, an 18-episode Disney+ series for Charlie Cox's Daredevil and not one, but two …

We can't move for members of the Howard family on the Empire Podcast these days.

A Pick the Flick episode of Frame Rate! This means one of our patrons, specifically A. Ron Defender of the Galaxy, generously donated through the Pick the Flick tier and got to choose what we watched! This episode we covered the 2010 independent film The Happy Poet, a film about a man who just wants to make a vegan food cart. It launches a conversa…
 
Don't ever say that the Empire Podcast has a predictable roster of guests. For this week sees tennis legend John McEnroe sit down on Zoom with Chris Hewitt for a fun chat about his career, the new documentary McEnroe (which chronicles said career), and the numerous cameos he's made (usually as himself) in an array of films and TV shows. We cannot b…
 
This week's Empire Podcast sees someone new and noteworthy ease themselves into the fourth chair, as Eddie Hamilton, the brilliant editor of Top Gun: Maverick and the forthcoming double whammy of Mission: Impossible 7 and 8, joins the podteam — Chris Hewitt, James Dyer, and John Nugent — for the duration of the show.

Michael and Abe have been looking forward to covering a Satoshi Kon film and we figured we’d get one of our good friends, Zach Sherwin, who hadn’t seen it to come and discuss it with us! The film covers three unhoused citizens of Tokyo who find a baby in a dumpster and spend the entire film trying to find her parents, despite the night having a dif…
 
This week's episode of the Empire Podcast sees the podteam — Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara and James Dyer — recovering from their failure to win Podcast Of The Year at the BSME awards. In the process of doing so, they prove categorically why they didn't win, and in the process discuss the greatest movie pilots (who aren't Maverick), talk about the bes…
 
The year is 1964. Cold War tensions are high. “Funnyman” Stanley Kubrick tells an entire generation: “Wait, I can make this hilarious.” Somehow, this movie is a classic. Three dorks, including our longtime friend, novelist and comedian Clint Gage, sit down to talk about what makes this dark comedy work and what doesn’t hold up. Features:Clint Gage:…
 
It’s a Paul month. This time we discuss his 2002 film Punch-Drunk Love which reframes the traditional romantic comedy.

The boys talk about how choice direction and editing makes you feel something, for better or worse.Features:Michael Swaim: …
 
Elvis has entered the building. This week sees the release of Elvis, Baz Luhrmann's energetic biopic of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock'n'roll, and as a result our guest is Austin Butler, the young actor whose scintillating, swaggering performance as Elvis is set to make him a huge star.

The conversation does not go well.Features:Professor Scott Bug: https://t…

Udo Kier is one of cinema's greatest cult heroes. The German actor has been working steadily for almost sixty years, having become an actor after being discovered by chance while living in London as a young man.

Adam and Abe talk about how Die Hard’s John McTiernan secretly has the soul of an artist, adjusting a heist movie into a drama.

Britain may have shut down to mark the celebrations of the Queen's latest Jubilation Lee, but the Empire Podcast keeps on trucking, folks.

"Carter! That's my name!" And Hodges! That's his name! Get Carter, the 1971 film that marked Mike Hodges' directorial debut on the big screen and which launched a career that would take in the likes of Flash Gordon and Croupier, has been re-released and remastered (in glorious 4K) by the BFI.

In a world-first for a podcast, every single person on this week's episode of the Empire Podcast (sorry, newly award-nominated Empire Podcast) is played by Rory Kinnear. Probably. Actually, that's not true, but after witnessing his tour de force performance(s) in Alex Garland's MEN, which is out next week and which sees Kinnear play multiple roles …
 
Obi-Wan Kenobi. Now that's a name we've not heard in a long time. A long time. But we're delighted to hear it again, because that means that Ewan McGregor is returning to the role he played in George Lucas' Star Wars prequel trilogy (and which Alec Guinness originated, of course, in the original trilogy) in a six-part limited edition show which lau…

Adam and Michael discuss the crunchy combat of this year’s Sifu by Sloclap! Both hosts found the game’s ability to create the feeling of becoming powerful incredibly satisfying. Unfortunately for them, it isn’t real fighting and they’re both still wimps in real life. Seriously, you could probably just push Swaim over and he’d just say “Left Stick U…
 
This week's Empire Podcast sees the great writer/producer/director Judd Apatow drop in for another appearance, this time with his documentarian hat on, as he tells Chris Hewitt all about why he made the excellent two-part documentary, George Carlin's American Dream, which tells the life story of the great American stand-up, who was famous for his l…

It’s a Wes month. This time we discuss his 2001 film The Royal Tenenbaums which looks at familial grief and dysfunction. Wes Anderson’s style and charm is on full display with a stellar cast in what could be argued is a more formless narrative than movie goers were accustomed to. Abe and Mike disagree about Act 2 but who cares, it’s a good movie.Fe…
 
Another Pick the Flick by the audience! This time, we thank Phaedrus for the suggestion of 2009’s Moon!
