Empire July 2019

Once upon a time in Hollywood, a guy called Quentin Tarantino became an instant auteur – a filmmaker whose unique, ultra cine-literate voice brought us some of the most downright cool movies ever made. From Reservoir Dogs to The Hateful Eight, via Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill, and Inglourious Basterds to name but a few, QT has blazed a trail through Tinseltown like few others. This summer he’s back with Once Upon A Time In Hollywood – following a sprawling cast of characters through the final days of the film industry’s Golden Age in 1969.

In the new issue of Empire, we join Tarantino in the edit suite on his ninth film, getting the inside story on his latest big screen odyssey – and talking to mega-stars Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Margot Robbie about venturing back to the ‘60s. It’s the ultimate access to this summer’s most exciting flick. Also this month, we celebrate Tarantino for Empire 30 – with the director answering your questions in The People Vs. Quentin Tarantino, and fellow ‘90s indie icons Robert Rodriguez and Kevin Smith sharing their most beloved memories of the man.

Elsewhere in the issue, we talk cult horror with Hereditary director Ari Aster for his new film Midsommar, cult comedy with Jim Jarmusch for indie zombie movie The Dead Don’t Die, explore the circle of life with The Lion King director Jon Favreau, celebrate French filmmaking icon Agnès Varda with her closest collaborators, have Cameron Crowe sit down with Shawn Levy to reminisce all things Jerry Maguire, and much more.

Plus, this issue comes with the brand new issue of Pilot TV magazine – an epic summer preview, going on set of Stranger Things 3 to talk to the kids of Hawkins, Indiana, chatting all things Black Mirror and Fleabag with Andrew Scott, taking a first look at The Dark Crystal: Age Of Resistance, obsessing over the new series of Killing Eve, and talking to Rob Lowe about his British police drama Wild Bill.

It’s a super-stuffed celebration of all things celluloid (and small-screen) – order your copy now and have it delivered straight to your letterbox!
