In the July 2019 issue of Empire, we get the inside story on his latest big screen odyssey – here’s a sneak peek inside.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
Every Tarantino film is an event – but his latest is especially intriguing, delving back into the ‘60s of his childhood to revisit the demise of Golden Age Hollywood. Empire goes inside the edit suite with Tarantino to talk the filmmaker’s latest epic – and also talks to mega-stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie to talk all things 1969. It’s the ultimate access to the summer’s coolest film.
Empire 30: Quentin Tarantino
As well as diving deep into Hollywood, this issue celebrates QT for Empire 30 – asking reader questions to the man himself in The People Vs. Quentin Tarantino, and with exclusive tributes from fellow ‘90s indie filmmakers Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith.
The Lion King
Disney’s 1994 animation is an undisputed classic – but that hasn’t stopped director Jon Favreau from tweaking the formula for his photo-real remake. Empire talks to the filmmaker about the latest stage in The Lion King’s circle of life.
When Hereditary launched last year, it knocked audiences heads clean off with its nightmarish grief-laden horror. Now Ari Aster is back with an all-new cult vision in Midsommar – Empire catches up with one of the genre’s new young masters.
The Dead Don’t Die
You don’t necessarily associate indie filmmaker Jim Jarmusch with severed limbs and bloody carnage. But his latest project is a none-more-hip zombie flick, starring Adam Driver, Bill Murray, and Iggy Pop. Get to know the year’s most idiosyncratic, unexpected undead movie.
Bill Murray Was Considered for the Role of Batman. In addition to Kevin Costner, Pierce Brosnan, and Mel Gibson, Bill Murray was considered for the role of the caped crusader in the 1989 film Batman. That was, until director Tim Burton came on board and went with Michael Keaton.
It’s over 20 years since Tom Cruise had us at hello in one of the greatest romance-cum-sports-industry-drama-cum-character-dramas ever made. Director Cameron Crowe talks his iconic crowd-pleaser with filmmaker and Stranger Things exec producer Shawn Levy.
When she died earlier this year, French New Wave pioneer Agnès Varda left behind an astonishing legacy – and it’s about to come full circle with her final piece, Varda by Agnès. Empire celebrates her incredible work with the help of her frequent filmmaking collaborators.
In this month’s home entertainment section, we break down Vice with director Adam McKay, talk the great Laurel and Hardy with Stan & Ollie’s Jon S. Baird, chat with moustachioed legend Sam Elliott, rank the Bond movies, and much more.
