2018 has (nearly) wrapped – and you know what that means. It’s time to get excited about a whole new year packed with films that we can’t wait to see splashed across the big screen. From action brawlers to superhero epics, high-profile horrors, and new movies from legends like Scorsese and Tarantino, the next 12 months will bring all kinds of cinematic treats. In the February issue of Empire , we present the Ultimate 2019 Preview – your complete guide to the movies set to be the big talking points of the year. We’ve got exclusive images, filmmaker access and more – and leading the charge is a certain fiery antihero.
Inside, you’ll find the likes of Hellboy , Avengers: Endgame , It: Chapter Two , Glass , Joker , Captain Marvel , Godzilla: King Of The Monsters , The Irishman , and plenty more. And that’s not all for this issue – Empire 30, our 30th birthday celebrations, continue with Taika Waititi, the genius director behind Thor: Ragnarok , Hunt For The Wilderpeople , What We Do In The Shadows and more. He answers your questions, and gets an appraisal from his stars including Jeff Goldblum, Julian Dennison, and Chris Hemsworth.
Elsewhere, we take a look back at Superman The Movie on its 40th anniversary, meet Green Book stars Mahershala Ali and Viggo Mortensen, and Keira Knightley steps in for a sweary, straight-talking, career-spanning Empire Interview. It’s one hell of an issue – and you can pick it up on newsstands and online from Thursday 27 December.
