Rian Johnson's Knives Out presents a very modern, and very Rian Johnsonian, twist on the murder mystery, and, in the shape of Daniel Craig's Benoit Blanc, introduces a great detective to rival Columbo, Taggart, Morse and maybe even Hetty Wainthrop. And, in this long overdue Empire Podcast spoiler special, Johnson explains to Chris Hewitt how he came up with many of the film's major twists and turns.

Then, in the podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara and Amon Warmann for a fun conversation about the movie which features much talk of sweaters, more bad Benoit Blanc impressions than you could shake a doughnut at, and much, much more.

Again, sorry for the delay with this. We suspect foul play. Or maybe it was just the flu which sidelined Chris for a couple of weeks. Either way, it's here now, so do, please, enjoy.
