Back of the net

Sensibly deciding to take his papier-mache head off for his Empire Podcast interview, Michael Fassbender was on fine form as he talked about his latest, Frank, as well as his stoat impersonation, his deleted dance sequence at the end of Prometheus and his love of Buck Rogers.

Also under the interview lamplight were Mike Brett and Steve Jamison, directors of the inspirational American Samoa football documentary Next Goal Wins, who talk about how they made the beautiful game feel beautiful again.

In the news section, The Flintstones, Power Rangers and Bill Bryson's A Walk In The Woods all get their due, while elsewhere the importance of Studio Ghibli is definitively appraised.
