In a week where two five star movies hit cinemas - namely Zero Dark Thirty and Lincoln - the Empire podcast is bumper-sized, boasting lengthy reviews of both films, as well as a discussion of the JJ Abrams / rumours, your always-slightly-bonkers questions answered aStar Wars: Episode VIInd news of Steven Spielberg's return to TV with Masters Of The Air.
Oh, and Arnold Schwarzenegger drops by for a chat, as does the one and only Mark Strong - though not in floating head form, as in previous videblogisodes.
Listen out for pie jokes, purposefully mispronounced names and an anecdote about Arnie being attacked by a massive cougar. And don't forget, you can contact the podcast team via Twitter (with the hashtag #empirepodcast), Facebook and email@example.com.
