Empire – The Greatest Action Movies Ever£6.99
New Series – The definitive guide to Iconic Cinema
Empire – Classics – The Greatest Action Movies Ever
A Celebration of cinema’s thrills, spills and spectacular gunfights
Any greatest film ever argument – the one that ends with a spot of hair-pulling and face-crying – always takes a detour to the place that I call The Action Cul-De-Sac. You know, those fifteen minutes spent specifically discussing whether an action film can ever really, truly be described as a Great Film. (My contention, you’ll not be surprised to hear, is that absobloodylutely it can).
So, when we decided to launch a new series called Empire Classics – our celebration of the greatest iconic films and filmmakers – I knew where we should start. Action! Now, leaving my obsession with Kickboxer aside (never mind that dancing scene), just think about those amazing movies that make up this genre: Spartacus, North By Northwest, The Magnificent Seven, Goldfinger, The Dark Knight, First Blood, King Kong, Die Hard, Apocalypse Now…
The list goes on and on (and on), and inside these pages you’ll find stories on 54 of the finest movies known to man or womankind. Not just finest action movies – finest Movies. They’re the films that will make you laugh, cry and wince. Every single one of them containing expertly crafted action sequences, be they fistfights, car chases or a man shooting a giant fish in the face. There’s truly something for everyone.

This Month At EMPIRE…
It’s the trailer we all needed, even if we didn’t know it. When the first teaser for Thor: Ragnarok dropped in April, there was much whooping and hollering in the Empire office (only some of it from me). Number one: HELA! That costume (holy hell, Cate Blachett). Number two: the haircut. Number three: Jeff Actual Goldblum. Number four: the old friend from work…It was bold, it was funny, it looked completely bonkers and, hey, in the hands of Taika Waititi (director of Empire’s film of 2016, Hunt For The Wilderpeople), what else could we have possibly expected? We wanted to know more though. Immediately. So we despatched Dan Jolin to the set in Australia to get the lowdown from Waititi and his awe-inspiring cast – turn to p84 for the full story.
That’s not the only thing that’s been going on in our world though – there was a tiny event call Comic – Con in San Diego. You may have heard of it? An Empire crew hopped on a plane and spent four days interviewing and photographing the world’s biggest actors and filmmakers in our pop-up studio. There is a full 26-page bumper feature on p57 and, while you’re at it, head to empireonline.com for recaps on all of the news from Hall H and beyond.
Comic-Con is a great indicator of what the next year or so in movies is going to look like. And, having surveyed the landscape and what[‘s waiting over the brow of the hill, we can say that by God, it looks good.
With the likes of Black Panther, Ready Player One, The Shape Of Water, Avengers: Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri all out in the next 12 months, the future, friends, is bright.
Ready? We are. LET’S GO.

Q – September 2017£4.50
In the Septemeber 2017 issue of Q, we track Josh Homme on his motorbike in Los Angeles and his footsteps’ through London’s Soho in an exclusive cover feature. On the eve of the release of Queens Of The Stone Age‘s brilliant new album Villains, Niall Doherty finds out what makes modern rock’s kingpin tick. “I never blame the devil for what I do cos I don’t want the devil to get the credit,” says Homme.
Also in the issue, things get very emotional as Chris Catchpole joins The Maccabees at their farewell shows in London. Andrew Perry goes out on the road with goth-punk heroes The Horrors in Spain and travels to Italy with volcanic-voiced man mountain Rag’n’Bone Man in Italy to hear the true life stories behind his megahits. Laura Barton meets art-rock superheroes Grizzly Bear in LA to hear how they reunited to make their excellent new record and Dorian Lynskey profiles the set designers behind the biggest rock shows on Earth.
Elsewhere in the issue, we have a bumper extract from Lizzy Goodman’s magnificent book Meet Me In The Bathroom: Rebirth And Rock And Roll In New York City 2001-2011, which tells the story of the last great urban musical explosion. This extract concerns the debauched joint tour The Strokes and Kings Of Leon undertook with Regina Spektor in 2003. Wyclef Jean gives us his 10 Commandments and Alt-J are the subject of this issue’s Cash For Questions. We also join Foo Fighters in the studio, and The Killers talk us through their triumphant Hyde Park show with some behind the scenes snaps.
In reviews, we cover mammoth live shows by Radiohead and Guns’n’Roses and run the rule over new albums by The War On Drugs, Ghostpoet, Queens Of The Stone Age, Everything Everything and Dizzee Rascal. All this and much more, in the new issue of Q.

- RANDY NEWMAN – The last genius of American song-writing has a new album out, but the usual insecurities and idosyncrasies apply: “I’d do nothing, if I knew it wasn’t bad for me.”
- THE ALLMAN BROTHERS – Gregg Allman’s passing has prompted a surge of love for his Southern Groovers. Alan Light recalls their regal rise and torrid travails.

WHAT GOES ON!
EMPIRE – August 2017 Issue£4.70
In EMPIRE this month…
THERE IS A small but solid clutch of films that have a massive DO NOT TOUCH OR COME NEAR OR EVEN LOOK AT sticker slapped across them. Don’t attempt a remake and by Christ, don’t attempt a sequel/ As we know, for every The Godfather Part II there is a Breakin 2.
Blade Runner has always sat squarely amongst those films. One of the greatest sci-fi films ever made, Ridley Scott’s portrait of a dystopian world brutalised by social decay and devoid of humanity remains timeless.
As the years have passed, each rumoured sequel (and prequel) has fallen away, our breaths slowly exhaling as they did. It was, we thought, never going to happen. And yet, here we are, 35 years later, and just over the horizon is Blade Runner 2049. It does feel in truth that we’ve been holding our breaths once more, ever since news of the sequel was confirmed. Was Ridley Scott on board with it? Would Harrison Ford’s Deckard return? And in what capacity?
Hang on, is that Ryan Gosling?! And the biggest question of all. The only one there ever is, really. Oh God, will it be good? We can’t answer the last one definitively just yet (Sorry!), but we are more hopeful, and full-lunged as ever. Empire’s Ian Nathan went on set and witnessed Denis Villeneuve’s new world coming to life, and it seems as rich, dark and mind-bending as Ridley Scott’s ever was. Turn to p66 for his full report.
That’s not all we’ve got for you, though. We have the latest Han Solo news, a first look at Detroit, all the details on Steven Soderbergh’s new heist flick and truly one of the craziest stories i’ve ever read on the making of a film. Think Con Air is nuts? The movie’s got nothing on how it actually found its way to your cinema screen. Turn to p110, put your feet up and enjoy.
It’s been a blast this month.
