Podcast 111: Viggo Mortensen, Hossein Amini, Gareth Edwards
Shock and roar

In the early Godzilla movies, The King Of The Monsters was just a guy in a suit, but the advent of modern SFX means that men stomping on miniature cities are no longer required. But if they were, Gareth Edwards would be the megaphone weilder shouting "Punch the water tower!" and "Drop-kick that battleship!", because he's the director behind this week's reboot of Toho's beloved scaley scoundrel. He's joined in the Empire Podcast this week by The Two Faces Of January's Viggo Mortensen (star) and Hossein Amini (director), who talk about everything from The Parthenon to Montesquieu.

Elsewhere, the team talk about the reactions to the new Batman suit and Batmobile, come to terms (yet again) with the Point Break remake and evaluate who has the sultriest voice in cinema. Hint: it's not Charlie Day.

Please save the spoilers for the Spoiler Special (warning! Spoilers in my comment)
Why oh why did you spoil so much with your Godzilla review?! You gave away the entire first two-thirds of the film and revealed that the monster they are chasing at the start of the film is NOT Godzilla. When you guys blabbed this in the podcast I thought you were joking ... Then I realised to my horror that you weren't. Was going to see Godzilla this evening and thought I could listen to a spoiler free opinion since you are releasing a spoiler podcast on Monday. Thanks for ruining the movie fo More
