Are you ready for a raucous, rollicking rollercoaster of revenge? Dev Patel’s directorial debut Monkey Man sees Kid (Patel), a lowly fight club worker who sports a monkey mask in the ring, take on the underworld elite to avenge the death of his mother and fight the fight for the city’s poor and powerless. An unholy alliance between Patel and producer Jordan Peele, expect a high velocity thrill ride filled with spectacular chases and bruising brawls, all delivered with style to spare.

To celebrate, on the evening of Tuesday 26 March at a central London location, we are giving Empire VIP members the chance to experience the jaw-dropping action one week before the film comes out. Don’t delay. Simian disguise optional.

This event is exclusively for Empire VIPs. VIP Members are eligible for all events, however live events will have limited capacity and tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
