I'm pretty stuck as to what'll be on the cover of this one. It could be Pacific Rim, World's End, Wolverine, Lone Ranger or maybe Man of Steel again! Anyone have any ideas?

Please god, no Lone Ranger. Probably my least anticipated film of the summer, and I can't see it turning out any different from the mess that was Cowboys and Aliens. I think we may get World War Z, or optimistically Elysium or Thor: The Dark World, both of which have their first teasers due shortly.

Come on, Star Trek Into Darkness got 2 covers, so it seems pretty obvious that Man of Steel will get 2 covers too! Generally a big movie gets the cover from the month of his release, plus eventually another one earlier...

Then probably Pacific Rim (July), Lone Ranger (Aug), The Hobbit (Sept), Thor (Oct), Hunger Games (Nov) and The Hobbit again (Dec).

But i pray to have The World's End in September!

Yes, a LOT of love for Kick Ass 2, but i fear the summer is a little crowded. There isn't room for every big movie - especially when Empire gives 2 covers a film!

The Lone Ranger & Pacific Rim coverage in the past issues was so tiny it's pretty sure they both have their own issue! So no room for Kick Ass...

yes im hoping for another superman issue too - especially since TDKR, Skyfall, and now Trek 2 all got 2 covers - hopefully with some retrospective stuff on the Reeve flicks and SR

maybe something like these for a subscibers cover to mark supes anniversary in 2013 (75th of superman, 35th of STM, 30th SIII)

Yeah that would be great. I'm pretty much new to the empire magazine i noticed its a month ahead. So does this mean that april's #288 shall have a review of MOS?. Or will it only be reviewed when its released in June?. Wb have been not very forthcoming on the promotional front for MOS, with only ten weeks or so to go I hope to see a lot more happening soon. Especially with some other big blockbusters hitting cinema's this summer.

The June issue will be in shops end April. MoS is out on June 19th, so hopefully the review will be in the August issue, available end June.

I reckon it'll be World War Z with Pacific Rim coming the month after. That's normally the way with Warners' big July movies (e.g Dark Knight Rises last year, Harry Potter year before and Inception before that).

... Or maybe the Blockbuster issue? There hasn't been one this year.

Got mine through the post this morning. It's a Man of Steel cover, although I'm not sure whether they've got variant character covers, but I received a Zod cover. He looks a bit like the fella from Gears of War, lol.

Also received a poster but I won't spoil for which movie it is. I will say that Rorschach would be proud!

Multiple covers are fun if you buy your issue in shop, so you're able to pick your favorite. But for subscribers it's a little bit annoying...

What Empire did last year with the Avengers issue (4 different covers, but only one subscribers cover with all 4 characters on it) was perfect, i wonder why they aren't doing that anymore.

Anyone who has the issue, could you tell me some stuff about the issue before I shell out my money- as it's in a plastic bag this month.
What is the first, two-page review?
Is Iron Man 3 reviewed?
How big a feature do Hangover and Gatsby get?
Are the free posters separate or back-to-back?

Really appreciated!

I've only had a quick flick, but there is no Iron Man 3 review. In fact, from the reviews stars it looks like we don't have to be troubling the cinema a great deal in the next month.

In the masterpiece feature, they've used the wrong picture for 12 Angry Men. I'm not usually a nitpicker, but that's pretty shocking.

Two page review is Byzantium.
Iron Man 3 is not reviewed.
Gatsby gets around 1.7 pages, Hangover 3 gets... 3 (or just under taking into account side-bars, etc).
Posters are back-to-bacl.

Great issue! I spent longer than usual reading it, as there was a lot of content. The Awards coverage is massive, and the Reeve article is a nice addition. Can we have Lone Ranger next month??
