Two of the best talkers in the business, Colin Farrell and Joe Eszterhas, are in the Empire Podcast this week. Farrell dropped by to talk Saving Mr. Banks, bad hair bleaching and Anthony Hopkins' amazing anecdotes, while Eszterhas took the time to chat about screenwriting, Basic Instinct and Showgirls 2 (which came as news to him...).

The Empire Podcast team, meanwhile, tackle such intriguing topics as the best insults in cinema, what guilty pleasure movie songs keep getting stuck in their heads and whether a big blockbuster will ever be worthy of an Oscar. And in the reviews section, Saving Mr. Banks and Carrie go head to head, and with only one involving Emma Thompson, you can probably work out which wins out.
