Coming to The O2 this weekend

This weekend the fun and games will begin in the cinema at The O2. ‘American Airlines presents Empire Live’ film festival.

Empire is the World’s biggest Movie Magazine and it has announced the full line up of exciting events ready to hit the O2 this weekend for American Airlines Presents Empire Live weekend.

A series of exclusive screenings, filmmaker Q&A’s and family programming has been added for this ultimate film and entertainment weekend.

Taking place from 23rd – 25th September, thie weekend will kick off with an exclusive double Daniel Radcliff gala screening of two new films, Swiss Army Man and Imperium.  As a special introduction to this double bill, Daniel Radcliff will participate in an on-stage interview ahead of the screenings at The O2 to discuss both films, this is exclusive for those attending the double bill.

There is also an exclusive screening of Game of Thrones: Battle of the Bastards along with a Q&A session.

If ever an episode of television threw down the gauntlet to the big-budget cinema it was The battle of The Bastards. The most exhilarating episode in the best season of the biggest show on the television, this is Game of Thrones at its very best. It was the episode where Daenerys introduced the Masters of Astapor to the business end of her dragons. Most importantly, though, it was the episode where Jon Snow lead a ragtag band of Starks, Mormonts and Wildlings against the might of Ramsay Bolton in a muddy, bloody, brutal mêlée the likes of which the small screen had never seen before. We’ll be re-enacting the battle for Winterfell at Empire Live with a special screening of the episode in all its gory glory. It’ll be just like you were actually there, only with fewer dead horses and missing limbs.

Of course, if that isn’t for you and you are looking for family fun this weekend there are showings of the following which sound like they will be a blast:
