#438 — Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, Sope Dirisu
The Empire Film Podcast
As luck, or the devilish machinations of our dark lord Beelzebub, would have it, this week's episode of the Empire Podcast is, if you count all our specials and one-offs, our 666th. It's all for you Damien etc. etc.
And, as it lands one day before Halloween, it's a suitably spooky ep, as Chris Hewitt has a chat with fast-rising British actor Sope Dirisu, star of the fabulous Netflix horror movie, His House. They also talk about Sope's breakout year, his role in Gangs Of London, his former life as an economist, and Thierry Henry.
Our other guests this week are Tomm Moore and Ross Stewart, the co-directors of the wonderful Irish animated film, Wolfwalkers, and they talk to Amon Warmann about that, about the state of animation, and about Batman. Well, of course.
Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Amon, Helen O'Hara and Beth Webb to answer a ton of your Halloween-themed questions, drop the shortest Three Fact Structure to date, discuss the week's movie news and, in a bumper reviews section, cast a critical eye over His House, The Witches, Relic, Mogul Mowgli, Shirley and Wolfwalkers. Oh, and Helen ruins everything with her potty mouth.
