Would Empire ever consider a spin-off magazine, maybe for older readers along the lines of Mojo music magazine, with Q geared towards younger readers -a clumsy comparison I know, or is the market just not there for it?

What would you put in a magazine about 'movies for older readers'? Features on Coccon & Gran Torino?

Driving Miss Daisy, Rocky Balboa etc. Seriously though, the landscape of Empire has changed a bit over the years, when I first started reading it was a much, more mature tone you were more likely to see a Scorsese film on the cover than a franchise film.

To paraphrase Dazed & Confused: You get older, Empire stays the same age. I think the tone has stayed fairly consistent, you're just getting older.

I think you can blame the state of Hollywood rather than Empire for what ends up on the cover. Empire has always largely focused on the mainstream. It's what sells.

& looking at the cover art gallery, the only Scorcese film I can see that ever got on the cover was Cape Fear, which was about as mainstream as you could get.


If you want a film mag that shies away from the blockbuster stuff & mainly deals with so-called 'serious' films, get Sight & Sound.

The previous covers are available at http://www.empireonline.com/magazine/covers/. There are a few other Scorcese covers if you count the multicovers of November 2008 - Raging Bull, Taxi Driver and Goodfellas. The cover stars have definitely changed over the years. Empire does focus on the mainstream movies in the main but that's why it's so popular and after all, it is a business.
