INSIDE THE ISSUE
Empire Magazine - Issue 301
THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK
Retired he may be, but George Lucas agreed to talk to us about his great sequel. Pick up this month's magazine to learn why Boba Fett is like Iron Man, why Greedo shot first and why Harrison Ford wanted to die – onscreen, at least.

BLADE RUNNER
Ridley Scott's dark, strangely sad sci-fi thriller is not the sort of film you necessarily associate with merchandise, but collector Geoff Hutchins has nevertheless amassed quite a collection of products, original props and one-off memorabilia for the film. He showed us the picks of his collection.
• Go to Blade Runner on the list

Empire Magazine - Issue 301
SKYFALL
A year and a half after Skyfall hit cinemas, and screenwriter John Logan still can't quite believe its success. We asked him about the film's key decisions (Moneypenny! M! Komodo Dragons!) and what it is that makes Daniel Craig such a perfect Bond.

Empire Magazine - Issue 301
BRAVEHEART
In a world where Scottish nationalism is once again a potent force, it seemed right and proper to take a look back at Braveheart, through the words of the people who made it. In this oral history, you'll learn all about crazy horses, near-death experiences and historical (in)accuracy.

Empire Magazine Issue 301, Godfather and Travis Bickle illustration THE 301 GREATEST MOVIES OF ALL TIME - IN NUMBERS
If you're numerically inclined, it's your lucky day! Scattered throughout our 301 Greatest Movies list are statistics that put the results in context, breaking down the most popular stars and directors on the list, the films' countries of origin and counting just how many movies on the list feature Nazis, and how many preferred serial killers.

Empire Magazine - Issue 301
PLANET OF THE APES
It has one of the most famous twist endings of all time – just behind the one with Bruce Willis and alongside the one with Kevin Spacey – but exactly who was responsible? Several people claim credit for that last scene, so we delved into cinema history to pick apart its evolution.

Empire Magazine - Issue 301
THE THIRD MAN
Orson Welles was never the easiest man to work with, but he proved a key component to Carol Reed's Vienna-set thriller. Here, we tell the full story of his work on the film and the struggle to even get the hard-partying genius to turn up on set.

Empire Magazine - Issue 301
ZULU
From Scottish nationalism to a heroic stand for English and Welsh forces, as we go behind the scenes on the story of the Battle of Rorke's Drift. Director Cy Endfield had a personal archive of photos, and his estate has kindly opened them up to show a personal, never-before-seen side to the epic, with commentary from film historian and author Sheldon Hall, writer/actor Simon Pegg and writer/director Christopher McQuarrie.
