On the evening of Monday 25 September, at a central London location, you can journey to 2070. Set in a future where humanity is threatened by an AI ‘super weapon’, Gareth Edwards’ The Creator, starring John David Washington, looks set to be everything you’d expect from the man behind Monsters, Godzilla and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Empire VIPs will be among the first to see the highly anticipated epic ahead of its nationwide release on 28 September – not only that, but we will also have an in-person Q&A with Edwards himself. A blockbuster with brains as well as visual flash, this will sell out quickly. The future is now.
