Empire magazine to publish five iconic covers as Steven Spielberg takes over

Bauer Media’s Empire magazine is to publish five iconic covers as Steven Spielberg takes over for this month’s issue.

The five covers depict iconic scenes from Spielberg’s most famous movies; Jaws, Raider Of The Lost Ark, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial and Saving Private Ryan and well as one featuring the new virtual reality blockbuster, Ready Player One, which hits cinemas on 29 March.

 

 

This special edition builds on a long and established relationship between Empire and the legendary film director, which has spanned over three decades.

Inside the special issue, on sale on Thursday 22 February, readers can look forward to an exclusive interview and photo shoot with Spielberg himself, an access all areas feature on his new virtual-reality film Ready Player One, plus exclusive interviews and essays from iconic directors and actors including Martin Scorsese, JJ Abrams, Tom Hanks, Christopher Nolan, Josh Brolin, Edgar Wright, JA Bayona, Colin Trevorrow, Rian Johnson, Jeff Goldblum, Laura Dern and Sam Neill.

The issue is being supported with more exclusive pictures, interviews and video content across Empire’s social accounts and Empireonline.com.

Terri White, editor-in-chief of Empire, commented: “Sometimes editing Empire is dead hard. And sometimes you get a phone call saying that yes, Steven Spielberg would like to take over the magazine for one issue and it’s the greatest job in the world. We were thrilled to collaborate with Steven Spielberg, the man who changed cinema forever, on this issue. Not only was it a chance to give the inside story on his latest movie, Ready Player One, but hear from some of the greatest filmmakers and actors he’s worked with over his career for their memories of the man himself. If you can read this issue without shedding a tear, you’re a stronger woman than me.”
