#496 — Lupita Nyong'o, Bert & Bertie

from The Empire Film Podcast | Published 1/7/2022

We're back! After a brief break for the Christmas and New Year holidays (during which we somehow managed to produce a whole bunch of podcasts anyway, but let's not quibble), the Empire Podcast is back, and seeing in 2022 with a bang. Our very first guest of the new year is a cracker, as Amon Warmann sits down on Zoom with Lupita Nyong'o, star of The 355, while later Chris Hewitt has a natter with Bert & Bertie, the directing team behind episodes 3-5 of the excellent Disney+ show, Hawkeye. Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris and Amon join forces with James Dyer and, belatedly, Helen O'Hara to talk about the movies they watched over the Christmas break (the answer may shock you), the movie-related presents they received (the answer may bore you); discuss the movie news; review The 355, Licorice Pizza, The Electrical Life Of Louis Wain, and Boiling Point; and get into a big old humdinger of a debate about... well, we won't spoil it. You'll have to listen to find out. Enjoy! And Happy New Year!
