About this magazine

Empire Magazine is the movie magazine choice of Hollywood's elite (with the likes of Steven Spielberg and Sam Mendes having guest-edited previous issues), meaning that it enjoys unparalleled access to the biggest movies and stars on-set during production. Empire magazine includes all the latest movie reviews (ones that haven't even hit the cinema yet!) as well as celebrity interviews, incredible imagery and gossip on the latest news in the movie world.

It has also spawned the annual Jameson Empire Awards, the UK's most influential film awards show after the BAFTAs, which are voted for by readers and therefore tend to honour films overlooked by the likes of the Academy and Hollywood Foreign Press.

In each issue of Empire magazine, peppered with the editorial team's impish sense of humour, you will find:

  • On Location - on set reports from the hottest movies in production.
  • Reviews - all of the month's cinema and home releases reviewed with incomparable knowledge and insight.
  • Masterpiece - critical analysis of a bonafide cinematic classic.
  • My Movie Mastermind - in which famous face from film are tested on their own movies.
  • Kim Newman's Video Dungeon - the renowned horror and sci-fi critic runs the rule over the month's bloodier releases.
  • Classic scene -an excerpt of a classic scene in screenplay form.

Whether you're looking for the latest digital edition or a monthly subscription to the greatest cinema magazine - Empire magazine , the quality and depth of the coverage on offer makes this Empire mag the perfect choice, either for yourself or as a gift for the film buff in your life.

Empire print magazine
I have read this every month, but normally buy it at airports when I see the next edition coming out. So much easier to have it delivered and with the fancy cover. Really cool. I do still believe that it is the best movie magazine available.

It is a digital interpretation of a print publication that can be accessed via tablet or smartphone.

A digital magazine covers all the content of its printed counterpart as well as offers editorial teams the facility to add extra interactivity. By this, we mean video content, animations, picture galleries, extra features and so on.

We currently have almost 50 magazine titles available on tablet and/or smartphone. The amount of interaction in them varies. Some titles have fully interactive versions available on some platforms while others are replicas of the print version, possibly with some extra videos and/or picture galleries added.
