Iconic Shots: Empire Captures 50 Picture Perfect Film Moments


It may be an advertising grab if there ever was one, but that doesn’t make Empire’s Picture Perfect: Iconic Movie Stills feature any less impressive. The popular British film magazine’s online arm has assembled 50 of the most memorable scenes from the history of film and delivered them in a glorious high resolution gallery. After browsing through much of the gallery, I clipped one of my personal favorites — from the opening T-Rex scene in Jurassic Park — to share with all of you above. Other great moments include one of the more beautiful shots from Hitchcock’s The Birds, Al Pacino sitting in his throne-like arm chair in The Godfather Part 2 and the savage Ethan Edwards (John Wayne) heading out toward the fringes of life in The Searchers. Just to name a few.

Head over to Empire and see the entire gallery for yourself, then come back and let me know which pics are your favorites in the comment section below.
