Empire February 2020

There are few characters in popular culture more iconic than James Bond – the British secret agent who’s endured on the big screen for nearly six decades. Five years since Daniel Craig last donned the 007 tux in *Spectre*, James Bond will return to Her Majesty’s secret service in 2020 for Craig’s fifth and final outing, *No Time To Die*. With a leading man who was initially unexpected to return, a high-profile case of creative differences along the way, and a whole era of the franchise about to be wrapped up, *Empire*’s latest issue offers a world exclusive first look at Daniel Craig’s last 007 movie, trailing across London, Jamaica, and New York to get the inside story on Bond 25.

As well as talking to Craig himself, the issue features brand new interviews with the likes of long-standing Bond producer Barbara Broccoli, director Cary Joji Fukunaga, new villain Rami Malek, and incoming 00-agent Lashana Lynch. It’s the ultimate introduction to Bond’s latest momentous mission. 

Also inside this month’s issue we meet Korean auteur Bong Joon-Ho, the man behind must-see thriller *Parasite*, gather the cast and writers of 2020’s most urgent movie *Queen & Slim* for an in-depth roundtable interview, and get the low-down on Harley Quinn’s fantabulous emancipation in DC spin-off *Birds Of Prey*. Plus you’ll find a first look at *Wonder Woman 1984*, Terry Gilliam talking *Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas*, the mad making of the ultimate ‘80s buddy-cop movie *Tango & Cash*, filmmaker Lorene Scafaria talking the brilliant *Hustlers*, Céline Sciamma writing on the making of her arresting romantic drama *Portrait Of A Lady On Fire*, and much, much more.
