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.

Interactive features don’t work

I can scroll but that’s about it. I can’t even click the links in the table of contents. You guys need to fix your app. I would also like to be able to just click on a button to take me back to the very beginning so I don’t have to scroll the entire magazine to find my next article. Really disappointed with this app. It’s practically 2020. Make it work

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.

Stored momentum ,

Great Movie Magazine App

Empire's app lives up to its print reputation with plenty of eye-catching animations and plenty of trailers to go along with their thorough reporting and reviews.

Two things I'd like to see are the restoration of the ability to mark stories and pages as favorites. And an option to a version for phones. (Although graphics might limit that possibility.)
