Empire March 2017£4.50
Pick up a copy of this month’s Empire and you’ll notice it’s gruffer, swearier, hairier, and with more regenerative healing powers than most months. There may even be a slight whiff of cigars about it. That’s because Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine is adorning our cover for the last time, in anticipation of the release of Logan. Mr Jackman’s fiery physique is merely the first page of an 154-page marvel of movie goodness – here’s a little taste of what’s inside.
The brooding, brutal mutant dominates our pages this month. Logan promises to be unlike your average superhero movie, and we have assembled never-before-seen images and some in-depth interviews with all the key players, including Jackman, Patrick Stewart, and director James Mangold. Watch out for a surprising anecdote on how Jerry Seinfeld influenced this movie.
Carrie Fisher Tribute
We were shocked to learn of Carrie Fisher’s death shortly after Christmas. For such an important cinematic icon, we felt it necessary to pay tribute in a big way: 24 pages have been devoted to the former Princess Leia, including excerpts from her memoirs, rare photos from the archives, personal essays from the people who knew her best, and eulogies from Empire writers.
Kong: Skull Island
We spent five months and thousands of miles jet-setting around the globe in search of a giant monkey. Our travels taking us to the tropical climes of Hawaii, Vietnam, and Australia – including a place called “Heatstroke Island* – to learn more about the latest monster movie hoping to make a stamp on the big screen.
Plus : Resident Evil; The Great Wall; Lego Batman; The Empire Interview – Christina Ricci and much more!

T2 -Trainspotting ; Taking centre stage is Danny Boyle’s hugely-anticipated follow-up to the classic ‘90s Brit hit. Empire was on set to witness toilet antics and fisticuffs – and interview all the key cast and crew to see if they still have a lust for life.
The Big 2017 Preview- It’s time we showed 2016 the exit and tell it to close the door behind it. This issue, we beckon 2017 in with open arms, and our outrageously massive 18-page (!) annual preview includes exclusive looks at the likes of (deep breath) Kong: Skull Island, Fast & Furious 8, Alien: Covenant, Logan, Dunkirk, Wonder Woman, War For The Planet Of The Apes, Mute, and many many more.
John Wick Chapter 2 ; People keep asking Keanu Reeves if he’s back…yeah, he’s thinking he’s back. Empire pops along to the set of John Wick: Chapter 2 and attempts not to get in the way of a thousand bullets flying every which way. We also learn that Wick will kill “more people than the bubonic plague”.
