T2 -Trainspotting ; Taking centre stage is Danny Boyle’s hugely-anticipated follow-up to the classic ‘90s Brit hit. Empire was on set to witness toilet antics and fisticuffs – and interview all the key cast and crew to see if they still have a lust for life.
The Big 2017 Preview- It’s time we showed 2016 the exit and tell it to close the door behind it.

John Wick Chapter 2 ; People keep asking Keanu Reeves if he’s back…yeah, he’s thinking he’s back. Empire pops along to the set of John Wick: Chapter 2 and attempts not to get in the way of a thousand bullets flying every which way. We also learn that Wick will kill “more people than the bubonic plague”.
