Empire's New Bond Cover Is Here!
Read all about Skyfall and much more

23 April 2012  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

It's that glorious time when we get to unveil a new issue of Empire again, and this month's issue is led by Skyfall, Daniel Craig's latest outing as James Bond. And he's there in all his pinstriped glory on our cover, suited, booted and armed.

As you can see, we have two covers this month: the rather snazzy newsstand version above that you’ll be seeing down your local shops, and below, the minimalist and achingly hot subscriber’s cover, exclusively for you lovely people signed up to receive the magazine every month. If you’d like to be among that number next time, click here to subscribe today.

Inside we have the fruit of several visits to the set of Skyfall, wherein we try to peer behind the veil of secrecy that covers the production (well, it is about a spy after all) and bring you all the news we can extract from the cast and crew. We also celebrate Bond's 50th anniversary with a look at some key moments in Bond history: there's a look at GoldenEye, Live and Let Die and On Her Majesty's Secret Service, as well as a chat with Timothy Dalton. You might say we have a licence to thrill! If you were into tired puns, anyway.

We have a widely diverse range of films inside as well: there's a Big Interview with Michelle Pfeiffer, a first look at Looper and a peek at Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and the full coverage of this year's Jameson Empire Awards, a feature filled with more pictures of glamourous people than you'd find in the entire photo section of Glamour R Us.

And as if that weren't enough, there's news on Anchorman 2 (read a tiny taster of that here) and Emma Stone giving one of the great Pint of Milk interviews. The new Empire hits newsstands on Thursday. Get it while it's hot!

Wow
Short hair-cut. Tell you what though, he's the first Bond who actually looks like he could beat the living shit out of you. More

Niven
In response to David Niven, I doubt he would be mentioned anyway as 50 yrs of Bond is for the 'official' EON films .... didnt it start as an american tv episode with 'jimmy bond?' More

Jeez...
DC's a great Bond and all that but who's idea was it to give him a 1920's haircut with a side parting?! That does him no favours at all. He looks like the FA Cup. More

Flashman
Yes - he's like Sid James meets Dumbo; but a fine actor and ideally suited to what Fleming describes; if the rumours are true about long-needed humour, then, like Goldfinger & The Spy Who Loved Me before it, the third time may be the charm. Two quick additions; 1) William Boyd will only say that his new Bond novel is set in 1969, so it is hardly a giant leap to suggest that the Moon could be involved. 2) Have read the comments of the person who allegedly saw More

RE: Crossword?
they made reference to the lack of crossword in the contents.. a few other things were missing too this month like the box office roundup! guess bond took up too much room! More

Crossword?
I just want to be sure I'm not going blind or mad, but there seems to be a lack of a crossword this month... slightly disappointed. More
