Empire Conquers America
With a little help from our friends

03 October 2012  |  Written by James White

Every new baby deserves to be greeted with a little pomp and ceremony, and Empire’s shiny US version – available on the iPad – is certainly no exception. So we invited some of tinseltown’s top talents to see it in action. And also to mingle, drink and celebrate. 

Netflix and Empire hosted a night at the Sunset Tower Hotel in Los Angeles and welcomed the likes of Jeremy Renner, David Fincher,  Michael Bay, Brett Ratner, Dominic Monaghan, Jason Reitman, Rian Johnson, Allen Hughes, Joe Carnahan, Max Landis, and the always-excellent Walton Goggins.

Yes, where else could you see Peep Show’s Big Suze (aka actress Sophie Winkleman) rubbing shoulders with the man who wrote Chronicle? Or Magic Mike / True Blood’s Joe Manganiello towering over pretty much everyone else in the room and looking far too good as he did it? Or even Looper director Rian Johnson getting away with daylight (well, night time) robbery?

There’ll be more on that last one in a special launch party videblogisode set to hit soon. And check out another party report in the next issue of the magazine.

Meanwhile, US readers, why not check out the latest issue on the iPad? It’s chock full of Arnold Schwarzenegger goodness plus loads of other content. And did we mention it’s free this week as a special trial? You know you want this in your life.

Please tell me somebody got Peter Mensah to say "This is madness!" so somebody could shout back "This! Is! Empire!!!" Or has that meme been well and truly buried now? More

A US version?
