Empire was born in 1989 as a print magazine. Today it has graduated into a fully interactive app - built for the all-American movie fan, animated and brought to life for the iPad and iPhone.

We bring you everything you need to know about films, whether they have just gone into production, are being polished in edit or have hit the silver screen.

We do this with expert knowledge, a critical eye and, occasionally, a little wit.

Each edition contains hot interviews with A-list stars and along with all the latest trailers, bonus content from our exclusive shoots and - of course - our expert, trusted film reviews.

Don’t miss out on:

World exclusive film news and first-look pictures of the big movies you care about, with exclusive on-set reports and interviews.

The most authoritative movie reviews in the world – both in cinemas and in the home.

Get up close with the most influential people in Hollywood... thanks to Empire’s incredible insider access to the biggest stars in movies, both in front of and behind the camera.

All this and more, served up with Empire’s irreverent sense of humour, unparalleled movie knowledge and GLORIOUS animations that bring the magazine to life on your device... plus a host of digital-only features.

Ratings and Reviews

Interactive features don’t work on iOS 11


On an iPad Air 2 the interactive features like scrolling through pictures no longer work. If an update was made to fix this I would consider getting a subscription.

Needs work.


The download mechanism is pathetic.
Downloads are slow on fast internet/WiFi and if you switch to another app or your screen/lockout times out... the download stops and cannot resume.
This is amateur work, guys.

Best Movie Magazine in the World


The best movie magazine in the world has converted into one if the best magazine apps on the iPad. I used to have this delivered to my home in the U.S. because since Premiere stopped publishing, this was by far the best movie magazine in the World. What used to cost me $100 a year to have delivers from the UK now costs $20 for a year. The content matches the magazine exactly, and is even better on the iPad with extra digital content.

I loved getting the paper copy in the mail - it is a beautiful magazine to have and looks awesome on a coffee table. I grab the latest copy whenever I am in the UK and will grab the occasional one in a Barnes and Noble if it has a feature on a movie I am really excited about (most recently, they Man of Steel issue). But you lose nothing with the iPad version. It is the best magazine app I have found an look forward to each issue, along with the convenience of having it with me all the time to read when I have the chance. Can't recommend it enough.
