When there’s something strange in your neighbourhood, Empire is who you’re gonna call – or, to be more precise, read. The latest issue of your favourite movie magazine features the all-new line-up of Ghostbusters, 2016 edition, on the cover, including a rather cool Slimer fold-over. And there’s plenty more inside, too.

We talk to the Ghostbusters of old and new, with exclusive on-set access to Paul Feig’s new supernatural comedy, and interviews with Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones.

Original 'buster Dan Aykroyd shares his thoughts on the life of the franchise over 30 years in a funny and heartwarming personal essay.

We’ve also got exclusive coverage on Duncan Jones’ orc-some new video game adaptation Warcraft: The Beginning, including interviews with the director and his half-human, half-orc cast and crew. (It's the cast that's half-orc; getting union permits for orc gaffers and key grips is fiendishly tricky.)

We take a look back at the incredible and wholly quick-witted career of the inestimable Shane Black, film-by-film, from Lethal Weapon to The Nice Guys.

Aussie screen queen and former Bridesmaids bridesmaid Rose Byrne is the subject of this month's Empire interview.

Plus, there’s a full report on this year’s Jameson Empire Awards, including exclusive chats with our starry winners – among them, Matt Damon, Stanley Tucci, John Boyega, and Daisy Ridley.

That, and more of the usual film-related fun, can be found in the June issue of Empire – available in all good, evil, or supernatural newsagents from Thursday April 28. You can subscribe instantly via this handy link{ =nofollow}.
