After a veritable drought of guests on last week's show, this week brings a figurative flood of filmmakers and stars to the Empire Podcast. First up, Ben Travis has a very hushed Zoom chat with Michael Sarnoski, director of A Quiet Place prequel/spin-off A Quiet Place: Day One [22:46 - 40:44 approx]. Then, Sophie Butcher talks all things Kinds Of Kindness with director and star duo Yorgos Lanthimos and Jesse Plemons [1:00:42 - 1:15:24 approx]. And finally, just for good measure, we also bring you an excerpt from Chris Hewitt's Bad Boys: Ride Or Die spoiler special interview with directorial dynamic duo Adil & Bilall [1:37:28 - 1:53:14 approx]. The full thing is available to subscribers, and you can subscribe at supportingcast.empire.fm. (True story.)

Back in the podbooth, Chris is joined by Sophie and James Dyer to tackle a listener question that combines two of Chris' obsessions, the MCU and Taskmaster, the latter of which he has only just started watching (for shame!). And in this week's movie news section, the team pay tribute to the late, great Donald Sutherland, who passed away last week, before diving into the Nosferatu trailer, Freaky Friday 2's filming commencement, big Nobody 2 news, and more. Finally, on the reviews front the team tackle morality tale triptych Kinds Of Kindness, melancholic sci-fi horror A Quiet Place: Day One, and Kevin Costner's epic western Horizon: An American Saga — Chapter One (take that Mission: Impossible Dead Reckoning — Part One). Oh, and James makes a quite Shrektacular pun at one point. So please do, as ever, enjoy!
