Got a feeling it probably will be.

I'd love to see something more niche and artistic on your covers EMPIRE, Gravity or The Zero Theorem instead of another latex-wearing superhero. Sometimes I've an impression, it's being edited by 10 year old kid who just want to see shit blows up and magic powers save the world. Your covers are good in terms of design, but come on, give us something more!

Absolutely agree. Give Superheroes a rest will you?! I expect Catching Fire next, with The Hobbit the following month. Maybe an outside chance of Jack Ryan. Having said that, I would love to be surprised...

I would also love Gravity on the cover.

Yup, winter preview issue. Main features on Catching Fire, Gravity, Carrie Remake, Cronenberg Props and ROTJ retrospective. Subscriber's cover is Jennifer Lawrence in Catching Fire - not sure what the regular one is

Just a word on this: there's a big article on Gravity inside the issue, so look out for that.

On covers, the cover has one job, and that's to sell the magazine. The covers chosen for the magazine are the ones we think will do that, and while we do experiment with other films, the superhero / action / comic-book films are the ones currently doing the job. The cover's only ever a partial reflection of what's inside, so do actually read the mag for more on your favourite films.

... and what about the subscribers' covers? Subscribers get the magazine anyway, so maybe you can experiment a bit more with them... at least to avoid multiple covers for the same movie :-)

PS: i may look like i'm complaining but i really LOVE your magazine. Thanks for your outstanding work!

Huh, I guessed the issue completely correctly!
Anyhoo... I quite like it. The Catching Fire feature itself is very short, and I fully sympathise with putting such a MASSIVE movie on the cover. Meanwhile, I will NOT be buying anything with Transformers 4 on it, unless it's that nice Irish lad Jack Reynor, of course!

But we're not generally going to give subscribers a completely different film, that'd be weird (and we'd get complaints). We do experiment with those, but aside from a vanishingly small number of cases (the Heath Ledger cover springs to mind) it's not going to be a different film because people - including subscribers - are more likely to want the big popular films than not.

Anybody else find it a bit odd that, before actually getting to the huge Winter preview that dominates the issue, you'll find several of the featured films (including Emperor and The Fifth Estate) getting trashed in the reviews section? I suspect that the features would've been prepared some time ago and there just wasn't space to include them in earlier issues though, it happens from time to time. (I remember instances from years ago when Catwoman and Pathfinder were witheringly reviewed, while later in the same issues there were lengthy and ostensibly positive features about them. It jars a bit, but obviously there's just not space all the time to include everything, especially when there's so many superhero films years away from release that take priority lol! )
