  1. 1. MEDIA PACK 2013
  2. 2. THE WORLD’S BIGGEST MOVIE MAGAZINE MEDIA PACK 2013 The UK’s most influential brands Why film? The UK Film market has continued and proven to remain buoyant. With the UK cinema market growing in both admissions and value. Cinema admissions have grown by 5.8% since 2007 from 162 million to 172 million. Further growth in 2012 is expected to see the market to be worth 22.3% more than in 2007, with revenues set to rise 18% between 2012 and 2017, along with admissions by a further 2.4%. That combined with the strongest release slate we have ever seen in the last decade. Releases such as Five new Star Wars movies, two more Avatars and Hobbits along with the return of Bond. Why EmpirE? Empire is growing at an astonishing rate. We are the second largest men’s magazine on the UK newsstand and we are outselling our rivals by 2 to 1 globally. 2014 will see us celebrate the huge publishing milestone that is our 25th anniversary and our huge 300th special issue. Making Empire even more of an incredible opportunity, with us delivering an unprecedented calendar of special issues and events throughout the year, to mark this momentous anniversary. In the last 4 years Empire has been nominated for over 30 industry awards and have won more than 15. the editor MARK DINNING we think popular.

  4. 4. THE INFLUENCE “Empire’s enthusiasm, honesty, wit and intelligence are contagious. I “Movies are my religion and Empire is my church” gEorgE lucaS QuEntin tarantino “I’ve collected Empire since issue 2 - I don’t know what happened with issue one, maybe I was skint or maybe there was a Sky magazine with Sherilynn Fenn on the cover” Edgar Wright “I’ve always known that when I open Empire magazine I‘ll find a witty and thoughtful view of what’s going on in this business” colin firth The constant quest to deliver the best movie coverage on the planet is underscored by amazing relationships between Empire and the biggest filmmakers in the world: Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino, Peter Jackson and JJ Abrams just some of its most influential fans and readers. After more than 20 years of being the world’s best movie magazine, Empire is now the BIGGEST movie magazine in the world. This international domination – outselling all its rivals globally by an average of 2 to 1 – is down to Empire’s continued commitment to delivering movie fans the greatest monthly experience, telling them which movies to get excited about and why we think popular.
  5. 5. THE EMPIRE READER Rob is 30, living and working in london. He is funny, smart and switched on. He is in a relationship but not yet tied down. Amongst his friends he is the source of knowledge for all things entertainment. He is tech-savvy and was the first of his friends to get an ipad, and the first to upgrade to an ipad2. His mates always come to him for advice on new technology – TVs, projectors, surround sound – and they know it won’t be a one-word answer. It will be well thought-through, based on research from the internet and magazines Rob is very active on the net, tweeting daily, and is a sponge for new information. He is open to change and is an investor in all forms of entertainment related technology. He is a keen gamer and although he has an Xbox and Kinect, he bought the pS3 to double as blu-ray player – a clear sign of his high disposable income on a long journey there is always a fight to sit next to him and watch the latest series of Breaking Bad & Homeland that he’s downloaded on his ipad. Movies are his passion – he is a collector and the ultimate film buff, always there to settle his mate’s film arguments knowing precisely why The Godfather part II is the superior film in the trilogy we think popular.

  11. 11. C A S e S t U dy AMERICAN EXPRESS American Express understands the power that film has to inspire, entertain and create lasting memories and therefore has a longstanding heritage in film partnerships. The Amex brand is involved in some of the best film experiences around the world, including being the founding sponsor of the Tribeca Film Festival and headline sponsors of the annual BFI London Film Festival In 2011-12, Empire partnered American Express to run a part-work series of three travel features across as many months. It was essentially a whistle-stop journey around the world, through the prism of great movies. The first of the series kicked off in America, went through Asia and Africa and ended up in Europe. To amplify the message further we replicated this activity on the Empire iPad keeping American Express category exclusive to ensure maximum stand out This activity fully hit the American Express client brief, allowing them to showcase all of their key pillars – Access, Travel and Service through an exciting and engaging brand partnership. They were delighted with the high quality advertorials delivered and the innovative use of video with the iPad App “What made the American Express Empie partnership such a great fit was mainly the confidence that all of us got from knowing that we were working with the leading authority on film in the UK. We knew that we had every chance of coming up with a fantastic idea that looked really good and was visually impactful, and the client was really happy, which obviously made us very happy too” phil coWin account director, mindshare “It’s encouraging to see a big advertiser like Amex recognising the value of sponsored editorial over straight advertorial content. The Around the World feature provided great editorial for our readers, while meeting Amex’s advertising objectives. A win-win execution from start to finish” JamES dyEr Empire digital Editor-in-chief we think popular.
