The Empire Podcast Is Here!
Cannes, Gareth Evans and Men In Black 3

25 May 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

It may be unlucky for some, but number 13 went without hitch or hazard as this week made it a baker's dozen of Empire podcasts. Not that we didn't take a chance asking along The Raid's director Gareth Evans, a man who's never seen a building he didn't want to punch holes in, for a chat about his blistering martial arts actioner. 


Fortunately it paid off. While his film may be bonkers and brilliant, Evans himself is a lovely man who didn't throw a single security guard out the window. Instead, he joined us for a chatty interview about his extraordinary career to date, the journey he's made from south Wales to Jakarta, and The Raid's wide-ranging influences. Yes, Hard Boiled gets a big mention this time.

This week's 'cast also features Team Empire's report from Cannes, which runs the rule over the festival's hottest tips and biggest fizzles, and runs the rule over Men In Black 3, Moonrise Kingdom and What To Expect When You're Expecting. Not the Spanish inquisition, it turns out. Just a normal inquisition.
