ALSO INSIDE THE ISSUE

CHRISTOPHER NOLAN'S INTERSTELLAR
Or, The McConaissance In Space. In a world exclusive, Empire has travelled to the farthest reaches of the universe (well, LA) to investigate Christopher Nolan's latest enigma. Not content with bending cities and (re)birthing Batman, the director has, in his own words, created "almost a mirror image of Inception". The year's biggest film is also the most intriguing...

EXCLUSIVE INTERSTELLAR INTERVIEWS
It's not all spaceships and wormholes, you know. Nolan has also assembled a mighty impressive cast, headed up by Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, so we sat down with both of them for inter(stellar)views. Hathaway says the film has "blood in its veins," while McConaughey calls it "the biggest film I've ever been a part of." Yes, even bigger than Ghosts Of Girlfriends Past.


INTERSTELLAR INSPIRATION
Interstellar's biggest inspiration was - unsurprisingly - Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey, so what better time to revisit giant space babies? We've spoken to Dave (of "I'm afraid I can't do that" fame) himself, Keir Dullea, to find out what Kubrick was like on set, what famous shot was done in one take and why HAL was originally a cockney. Interstellar's second biggest inspiration was Philip Kaufman's neglected classic The Right Stuff, so we spoke to Kaufman too about what Nolan calls "an almost perfectly made film."

MR. TURNER
After the intimate drama of Another Year, Mr. Leigh has gone period with his latest film. Mr. Spall plays the eponymous artist whose Romantic landscapes transformed the art world, and the actor spent two years studying fine art in order to convincingly reproduce Turner's work. Spall delicately terms his process "shagging the canvas," but we're fairly sure he's being metaphorical.


FURY
Brad Pitt and David Ayers rumble into cinemas next month with a war film that should have been called Das Tank. We've been to mud-strewn Hertfordshire to get the truth about the cast having physical fights, veterans "calling bullshit" and the fierce dedication of Shia LaBeouf (who answered Empire's questions via email, ALL IN CAPS).

15 YEARS OF THE WEST WING
It's been 15 years since Aaron Sorkin changed television forever, so Empire has gathered together all the main players for an in-depth retrospective. From the casting process to real life tragedies, we have an exhaustive chronicle of the show, all in the words of those who made it. Best read out loud while striding purposefully down a corridor.


THE 25 GREATEST SCARES OF OUR LIFETIME
The Lists Of Our Lifetime march onwards, while nervously glancing over the shoulder, to present the scariest moments of the last 25 years. Prepare to hide behind a cushion and whimper at the terrors of Audition, Kill List, The Descent and Coraline.

BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH BIG INTERVIEW
Sherlock, Khan, Hawking, Assange and now Turing: Benedict Cumberbatch has cornered the market in playing eccentric (occasionally malevolent) geniuses. We sat down for a lengthy one-on-one with the man who could reasonably claim to be the busiest actor in Hollywood – and nearly made him miss his flight. You're welcome, Cumbercollective.


ON LOCATION
This month, we made the long journey to the British Museum to see Dan Stevens (fresh from beating off American men resplendent in full armour as Lancelot, for the third Night At The Museum. Slightly more exotically, we went to Australia for Joel Edgerton's Felony, Brooklyn for The Drop and, err, Lancashire for Get Santa.

SLATE
If you can't wait for X-Men: Apocalypse, we have an exclusive report on x-spin-off, Nightcrawler, which… What? Oh. If you can't wait for Drive 2: Full Throttle, we have an exclusive report on Jake Gyllenhaal's dark and brilliant new thriller, Nightcrawler. As well as that, we have the latest on Mortdecai and Taken 3, while finding time to chat with David Cronenberg and ask Mads Mikkelsen how many Danish crowns it takes to buy a pint of milk.


IN CINEMAS
As autumn draws in, the films are getting equally dark. There's a missing wife in Gone Girl, a Travis Bickle-esque reporter in Nightcrawler, terrifying monsters in The Babadook and a stranded British soldier in '71. If you're after slightly lighter fare, there are also verdicts on Life After Beth, Palo Alto, The Maze Runner, Mr. Turner and many more.

RE-VIEW
We're turning Japanese this month, with the home releases of The Wind Rises and Edge Of Tomorrow (or All You Need Is Kill, or Live. Die. Repeat., or whatever it's calling itself now), alongside Ghost In The Shell and Akira Kurosawa: Samurai Collection on Blu-ray. Also out: Joe ("impressive"), Only Lovers Left Alive ("Jarmuschy") and Postman Pat: The Movie ("Judgment Day for your eyeballs"), while the actual Judgment Day, Terminator 2, is our Masterpiece and we challenge Andy Garcia to the Movie Mastermind quiz.
