This is truly a magnificent portfolio! The pictures were taken for Empire’s 20th birthday and we couldn’t be happier to assist this uber-cinematic anniversary!

Who could resist the governor as he recreates his iconic Terminator face? Who doesn’t feel the chills when looking at Clarisse and dr Lecter? Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster face each other again, for photographic purposes only! (the story continues right after the jump! Click through to discover the image gallery)

Ben Stiller Zoolander Magnum look

Resist Ben Stiller’s Magnum glaze, get your Bourne Identity erased with Matt Damon, join the Matrix with Laurence Fishburne, remember the 300 madness with Gerard Butler or rewind the future with Tom Cruise’s Minority Report.

This is a bit of fun!
I like the Toystory one of course,and the others are nifty, but which of their films are Morgan Freeman and Clint Eastwood recreating? They have done several together.

Million Dollar Baby? (that’s what I imagined, at least!)

I’m with Zoolander :X

Oh, then where is Hilary Swank, she should be in that photo.
How about “Unforgiven”?
Oh and I also like “The Lord of the Rings” for the GRRR factor of Viggo! : )

Well done Kpriss, a very, very nice Sinterklaas Surprise this December 5th, Dutch tradition. :))

Yeah, Viggo is very GRRR not because of LOTR! I’m a long term Viggo fan GRRR…not of Sean Bean though. I also love the HP cuties, Larry Fishburne, amazing actor as is the “usual suspect” Kevin Spacey and…oh, my weak spot for Matt Damon…Cint and Morgan can’t do no wrong….and……ah, I better quit, some men, no thanks…but I don’t want to be negative! No! :))
Kpriss a big :-*

Have a nice weekend everyone.

:* you too ladies! You make my every day!

Ellington, you have a point, where’s tomboy Hillary? (engaged in some other shoot… and anyway, there’s hardly any feminine percentage present)

I wish they had something in for Christopher Walken! I so love that guy!

Christopher Walken…..oh yes, he has become so gracefully older now. No work done. I love that man. You can do something with Christopher Walken Kpriss…..a certain Friday Break or did you used that one yet? The Deerhunter is this week on tv and the only reason I’m gonna watch it again is Christopher.
He’s so funny. He was guest at Jonathan Ross’ recently and did such funny a “Poker Face”!! It was on the web but where? I’m gonna Google!

Awesome pictures. Very creative! I love how they incorporated a prop from every film. The chair from the Matrix, The shotgun from Unforgiven, The cell from Silence of the Lambs, the box from Se7en, a table from the Great Hall from Harry Potter. Love it!
