Our second cover, featuring the guy they rebels are stealing from: the fearsome Director Orson Krennic, played by Ben Mendelsohn. The cape-loving Krennic is flanked by a couple of Death Troopers, the elite all-black stormtroopers who act as personal bodyguards to the Galactic Empire’s high command. These guys aren’t to be trifled with.
For Star Wars geeks, the new issue of Empire will be an essential purchase, with unprecedented access to the slightly-less fearsome director Gareth Edwards and his cast (including an in-depth look at Bistan, the ‘space monkey’).
We’re heading back to a galaxy far, far away this Christmas, and Empire could hardly let a new Star Wars movie slip past without letting it grace our cover. The cover features the team of rebels tasked with stealing the Death Star plans from the Imperial Military. Pictured on our cover (from left to right): Donnie Yen as Chirrut Imwe; Jiang Wen as Baze Malbus; Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso; Diego Luna as Cassian Andor; and Riz Ahmed as Bodhi Rook. The big droid at the back is Alan Tudyk, on motion-capture duties as K-2SO.
Featuring unprecedented access to director Gareth Edwards and his crew, the Rogue One issue of Empire goes on sale Thursday August 25
‘We will not go quietly into the night!’ blasts the new issue of Empire. Twenty years after President Whitmore’s stirring oratory, Independence Day: Resurgence sets a fresh lot of psychotic aliens upon the human race and once again, things are looking pretty bleak. Our new cover story explores this long-gestating blockbuster and weighs up our chances of surviving another Roland Emmerich firestorm.
There’s giant-sized coverage of The BFG this month, where we get to know fellas like the Meatdripper, the Childchewer, the Fleshlumpeater and the Gizzardgulper, plus one particular giant of an altogether friendlier disposition. We chat to director Steven Spielberg about adapting the Roald Dahl classic – his “first true fairy tale” – and hear from Spielberg’s big friendly star, Mark Rylance.
The theatrical releases having the rule run over them by our crack team of reviewers this month include Shane Black’s gonzo crime caper The Nice Guys, Wall Street thriller Money Monster, X-Men: Apocalypse, Alice Through The Looking Glass and Elvis & Nixon.
Take a whistle-stop tour of the key characters and events that shaped our islands, taking in everyone from Roman rulers and Viking raiders to Tudor queens and brilliant Victorian engineers.
