As a long time Empire reader, I am proud that they have chosen 'The Dark Knight Rises' to spearhead their launch in the U.S.”

Editorial will be tailored to the U.S. market, with a team to deliver localised content and pay attention to different release dates, as well as digital download and streaming reviews.
