    Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Spoiler Special

    Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Spoiler Special

    Riiiiiiiiiiise. But enough about Liverpool's former Norwegian left-back. Instead, after the amuse bouche that was our mini spoiler special for the ninth and final Skywalker Saga film, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker (both of which launched just before Christmas), here's the proper thing. Almost two hours of Team Empire sat around a table, banging on about JJ Abrams' latest slice of space opera, answering listener questions, and making terrible jokes.

    So, join Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, Ben Travis and, now that he's come to terms with his feelings about the film, James Dyer for discussion of Emperor Palpatine's sex drive, comparison of the film's ending to, well, the ending of another recent blockbuster, and a discussion of the timeline of Rey's parents that will make your brain hurt.

    Enjoy.

    #397 — Jamie Foxx

    #397 — Jamie Foxx

    He's played Ray Charles (to Oscar-winning effect), Bats, Motherf**ker Jones, Django, Ricardo Tubbs, and the President of the United States Of America. But this week Jamie Foxx — for it is he — faces his greatest challenge yet: appearing on the Empire Podcast. OK, we may have oversold it. But in a fun and insightful interview with our Chris Hewitt, Foxx talks about his new movie, Just Mercy, in which he plays a prisoner who's wrongfully imprisoned on Death Row. Give it a listen to hear Foxx talk about his views on the death penalty; do a quick tour of some of the most iconic voices he's used in his career; and reveal the advice Ellen Barkin once gave him.

    Then, back in the podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara and James Dyer to talk about this week's Oscars nominations (spoiler: Helen isn't happy, and gets a little bit sweary, about one nominee in particular), discuss the best film in the Academy Awards 11-nominations club, pore over the rest of the week's movie news, including Scott Derrickson's departure from Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness and Billie Eilish performing No Time To Die's title song, and review Bombshell, Just Mercy and Bad Boys For Life, which already may have the 2020's surprising movie award sewn up.

    Oh, and there's much talk of Gwyneth Paltrow's brand new candle. Be warned. Enjoy.

    #396 — George Mackay & Dean-Charles Chapman; Josh & Benny Safdie

    #396 — George Mackay & Dean-Charles Chapman; Josh & Benny Safdie

    And 2020 was going so well... The Empire Podcast makes its triumphant (?) return with the first proper pod of the new year, and it's a barnstormer. We have four guests for the price of two this week, as Helen O'Hara chats to the directors of Uncut Gems (the best Adam Sandler movie since Murder Mystery), Josh and Benny Safdie. Then Ian Freer has a natter with George Mackay and Dean-Charles Chapman, the stars of Sam Mendes' astonishing single-shot World War I movie, 1917.

    And, in the podbooth itself, Chris Hewitt is joined by Helen and James Dyer for a dissection of their Christmas break activity, a discussion of the films that should never be remade, a conversation about the week's movie news, and reviews of Uncut Gems and 1917. And yes, you guessed it -- the pod was recorded before the news broke that Scott Derrickson had left Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness. As correctly guessed on this very pod a few weeks ago, Nostradamus fans.

    We'll talk about that next week. But right now: enjoy.

    Knives Out Spoiler Special ft. Rian Johnson

    Knives Out Spoiler Special ft. Rian Johnson

    Rian Johnson's Knives Out presents a very modern, and very Rian Johnsonian, twist on the murder mystery, and, in the shape of Daniel Craig's Benoit Blanc, introduces a great detective to rival Columbo, Taggart, Morse and maybe even Hetty Wainthrop. And, in this long overdue Empire Podcast spoiler special, Johnson explains to Chris Hewitt how he came up with many of the film's major twists and turns.

    Then, in the podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara and Amon Warmann for a fun conversation about the movie which features much talk of sweaters, more bad Benoit Blanc impressions than you could shake a doughnut at, and much, much more.

    Again, sorry for the delay with this. We suspect foul play. Or maybe it was just the flu which sidelined Chris for a couple of weeks. Either way, it's here now, so do, please, enjoy.

    Review Of 2019 Special

    Review Of 2019 Special

    2019. What a year that was, eh? It was the year when Avengers: Endgame became the biggest film of all time. It was the year when Martin Scorsese returned with a bang with The Irishman, and put the cat amongst the pigeons with his comments on Marvel. It was the year when Star Wars ended... for now. It was the year of indie triumphs, glorious documentaries, killer clowns, overseas triumphs, and much, much more. And it was the year when Team Empire crammed themselves into the podbooth to talk about it all.

    So, join Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara, Ben Travis, James Dyer and —all the way from LA — James White aka Jaime Blanco for a bumper-sized edition in which they talk about their favourite and least favourite movies, moments, and general film-related things of the year. And if you're worried that they might talk about that film — you know the one — a bit too much, steps have been taken to ensure that won't be the case. Oh, and they finally do talk about the Portals scene.

    Enjoy. And Happy New Year to all our listeners!

    Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Mini-Spoiler Special

    Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Mini-Spoiler Special

    The saga is complete. With the release of Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker, the Skywalker saga that started back in 1977 with what we now know as Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope is over. But the discourse has only just begun. Here is the first Empire Podcast contribution to that never-ending debate — not so much a spoiler special, more of an extended reaction pod as Chris Hewitt, Helen O'Hara and Ben Travis sit down and talk about key revelations and moments from JJ Abrams' film, and, like, how it made them feel, man.

    If you're wondering why this isn't a full-blown two-hour-plus spoiler special, at the time of recording Team Empire had only seen The Rise Of Skywalker once. An extended special will be recorded and released in early January after we return from our Christmas break. But we hope that this tides you over, bad impressions, terrible Star Wars planet name knowledge and all. Enjoy.
