Empire Summer 2020

Cinemas across the world remain closed for now – but when the time comes, we’ll all be ready for some big-screen blockbuster entertainment. That’s because movies transport us to new worlds, taking us on grand adventures and illuminating inner journeys. This month’s edition of Empire is a Celebration Of Cinema special – a tribute to the power of film, and the gamechanging moviemakers that continue to evolve the medium in thrilling ways. This month’s subscriber cover is illustrated exclusively for Empire by Bill McConkey.

Inside, you’ll find brand-new interviews and tributes to the trailblazers, rule-breakers and screen legends that make cinema so special. We have James Cameron on four of his most awe-inspiring sequences, Barry Jenkins on pushing the boundaries of what's possible, Sofia Coppola and Kirsten Dunst on their 22-year creative partnership, Steve Martin and Martin Short on the secrets of comedy, Judd Apatow on the films that changed his life, the cultural impact of Black Panther, and much more.

All that, and we take a look back on the generation-defining Clueless 25 years later, go back to The Comfort Zone with the likes of Sing Street, Slumdog Millionaire and My Neighbour Totoro, take a first look at Dune, go on set of the Snowpiercer TV series, talk 1917 with Sam Mendes and Krysty Wilson-Cairns, and much, much more. It’s a jam-packed issue filled with all the usual movie goodness, sure to keep you dreaming of the silver screen until multiplexes open their doors once more. See you by the pick’n’mix.
