It's The Hulk In 3D!
Our latest cover hits a new dimension

18 April 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  

submit to reddit

We've had breathing covers. We've had holographic covers. We've had lenticular covers (that means all 3D-y when you wiggle it). But now comes an Empire cover so amazing that we had to use a whole extra dimension.

To mark the return of Hollywood's biggest (and greenest) hero, we've created the world's first fully 3D cover with the Incredible Hulk ripping his way out of the issue. Click on the image below for a better look.

Not that he should be trying to escape the issue of course, with all the filmic goodness waiting inside. As well as comprehensive Incredible Hulk coverage, we've got first look set visits to X-Files: I Want To Believe and Quantum of Solace. Plus, we go behind the scenes on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Sex and The City and Wanted. And that's barely scratching the surface. Frankly, he should be trying to fight his way back in. Pick up your copy on Friday April 25.

Going out on a limb here...
I absolutely bloody hated the cover. Just because you can do a thing doesn't mean you should. Between that horrible thick relief moulding on the front and the other cardboard inserts inside (you know: aftershave ads and - ho ho! - the "Xbox as the saviour of HD-DVD! info-merrcial thingy) trying to 'flick' through the mag was nigh-on impossible. In fact, even trying to studiously absorb individual pages at slug-like speed was like gum-extraction. Cardboard tech, my arse. Sorr More

HULK 3D
I loved the cover - the good thing is you can easily peel it off the magazine and frame it. (Well, kinda frame it...well...you can mount on the wall at least). Now wouldn't it be cool if they actually released the movie in 3D? Hulk smash! ...then duck at flying debris. More

Not your traditional coverboy...
...however it looks great and (jk3555) his nose sticks out a wee bit too! I'm actually really looking forward to this movie after Ang's lime green monster fighting big dogs and David Bana needing a bit more charisma - I should point out that Jennifer connoly is lovely, but what's not to like? Gotta say something about jibjob82's post on Starwars. Seriously dude, you need to chill out about it a bit and in fact get over the fact that none of the three prequals were that good, for various rea More

Re 3D cover
L: Ambition any speed racer coverage? :-( sp; Yes there is.  I got mine this morn via the medium of the royal mail, the shower of lazy shites fetched it on time for once. It looks great.  I don't think its fair on the computer illiterate people though that you do not include reviews of such anticipated movies like speed racer, ironman et al which only seem to appear online.

With this months issue it means my collection surpasses the decade mark, my first being May 1998 with Scream 2 on the cover. As ever, i was very happy to recieve my Empire through the post and be excited about the front cover. I then did the compulsory flick through to see what the articles to look forward to this month were and was excited by obviously the Hulk feature, the Affleck brothers et al but another bloody Star Wars feature? 5 damn pages of it? Come on Empire, Star Wars was last good i More

@ Olly
How much would it have cost to design and engineer and then publish such a cover as this ? Quite fascinating. More

Awwwww...Bummer
Don't get me wrong Empire. The cover looks well for a better word "incredible" but I was kind of hoping that Prince Caspian would dominate this month...*sad face* Still, theres another issue to go (for UK and Ireland anyway) before we get to enjoy the spectacle that is Narnia 2. I hope it makes the cover of the next issue. My day would be made hahaha! Can't wait to buy this. Oh it's soooooooooo cool! More
