Empire have been the leading charge in film journalism for a long time. Though their magazine seems to curtail more to fanboys and the comic book era of film making, Empire certainly attracts plenty of fans from far and wide. Many wannabe film critics still look to the company as Gods and many flock to newsstands (they are places where paper versions of websites are sold to audiences) just to read their work.
With many successful live podcasts and shows under their belt, it’s natural that this year, they’d want to go bigger and better. There’s a whole weekend of movie talk, special screenings, and big talks from the likes of Chris Hewitt, Ian Freer, and Helen O’Hara. Hosted over September at The O2 Cineworld in London, the events already announced are a special presentation of Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some and cinematic masterpieces from The Criterion Collection.
The line-up for Empire Live is getting insanely brilliant at the O2 arena. Not only are we getting a special screening of the Labyrinth to further celebrate the late and great David Bowie, but we are also going to see a different version of The Martian in a Ridley Scott presentation. On top of this, Martin McDonagh, director of The Guard and Calvary, will screen his third feature War on Everyone.
All that excitement and with more to come, Empire Live is going to be incredible!
EMPIRE LIVE IS ON 23rd – 25th SEPTEMBER
