Empire Magazine have announced their upcoming Empire Live event in London, which will be a multi-day film celebration bash at the O2 in Greenwich over the 23-25 September weekend. In addition to a special preview of Louis Theroux's My Scientology Movie (reviewed here by Smoke Screen), a pre-release screening of Jim Hosking's cult hit horror-comedy hybrid The Greasy Strangler, and a look at an extended cut of Ridley Scott's The Martian (reviewed here), it has been announced that Danny Boyle's Trainspotting will get script read through live in front of an audience with a new, secret cast of leading stars and rising talent. This will mark the 20th anniversary of the original film's impactful release, and foreshadow the release of the long-heralded sequel due in September. Live script read through's are an increasingly popular form of film event these days, Tarantino having trailed the release of The Hateful 8 with several read-throughs of his own.
Empire promise 36 special screenings including previews of new releases, blockbusters, cult classics, comedies, thrillers and documentaries. See Empire Live site for more details . Confirmed so far are:
