Podcast 88: Stanley Tucci, Elizabeth Banks, Francis Lawrence
Warning: surprisingly sweary

francis lawrence jennifer lawrence hunger games catching fire

Though you can read her wise words here and watch her talk "super snoods" here, Jennifer Lawrence isn't on this week's Empire Podcast, but her good friend and favourite music video director, Francis Lawrence (who just so happened to have helmed The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), is, joined by Stanley Tucci and Elizabeth Banks.

A word of warning, however: "Back It Up" Banks and "The Tucc" are swear-happy chappies here, so if you're not partial to the odd Effie-bomb or the occasional Caesar-bomb, you might want to skip the first minute or so of that interview.

Elsewhere, the team talk about their favourite adverts to feature movie stars, as well as British TV in honour of The Good Doctor - not that one - returning to our screens. Plus reviews of Blue Is The Warmest Colour, The Family, Parkland and, as you may have guessed, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

P.S. You can check out our podcast photo gallery here and subscribe to the Empire Podcast via our iTunes page or this handy RSS feed.
