Because this week’s episode of the Empire Podcast has more guests than Glastonbury, we’ve taken the rare step of dividing it into two parts. In the first part, Milla Jovovich tells Helen O’Hara all about re-teaming with her Resident Evil director, and husband, Paul W.S. Anderson, on the sci-fi actioner, Monster Hunter. And then Chris Hewitt catches up with Reece Shearsmith, and they have a good old natter about working in the middle of a pandemic, Bob Monkhouse, and Reece’s terrifying turn in Ben Wheatley‘s new movie, In The Earth.
Then Chris is joined in the virtual podbooth by Helen, James Dyer, and Ben Travis for a one heck of a half-episode that takes in The Three Fact Structure (ghosts! fountains! weddings!), and this week’s listener question, while the pod-team struggles heroically not to get bogged down in a discussion of the week’s big talking point: Batman’s prowess in a certain branch of the sexual arts. Do they succeed in that heroic struggle? What do you think? Enjoy.
