A couple of days ago we brought you the first look at Steven Spielberg's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn. Now we've got another treat for you: the first look at Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones.

Based on Alice Sebold's book, the film follows Susie (Saoirse Ronan) a 14 year-old girl raped and murdered by her neighbour. From heaven, she watches her family deal (or not) with her death, and watches her murderer as he tries to hide the evidence.

Mark Wahlberg plays Susie's father, Rachel Weisz her mother, Stanley Tucci the neighbour and Susan Sarandon the family's grandmother. It's directed by Peter Jackson, and adapted by him along with his co-writers Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens.

For many more pictures from the film, and a massive selection of other exclusive interviews and shoots that you wouldn't believe if we told you, pick up the 20th birthday issue of Empire when it hits on Thursday, or pre-order it here.
