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.

Empire March 2017£4.50
Pick up a copy of this month’s Empire and you’ll notice it’s gruffer, swearier, hairier, and with more regenerative healing powers than most months. There may even be a slight whiff of cigars about it. That's because Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is adorning our cover for the last time, in anticipation of the release of Logan. Mr Jackman’s fiery physique is merely the first page of an 154-page marvel of movie goodness – here’s a little taste of what’s inside.
The brooding, brutal mutant dominates our pages this month. Logan promises to be unlike your average superhero movie, and we have assembled never-before-seen images and some in-depth interviews with all the key players, including Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and director James Mangold. Watch out for a surprising anecdote on how Jerry Seinfeld influenced this movie.
Carrie Fisher Tribute
We were shocked to learn of Carrie Fisher’s death shortly after Christmas. For such an important cinematic icon, we felt it necessary to pay tribute in a big way: 24 pages have been devoted to the former Princess Leia, including excerpts from her memoirs, rare photos from the archives, personal essays from the people who knew her best, and eulogies from Empire writers.
Kong: Skull Island
We spent five months and thousands of miles jet-setting around the globe in search of a giant monkey. Our travels taking us to the tropical climes of Hawaii, Vietnam, and Australia – including a place called “Heatstroke Island* – to learn more about the latest monster movie hoping to make a stamp on the big screen.
Plus : Resident Evil; The Great Wall; Lego Batman; The Empire Interview – Christina Ricci and much more!
