As part of its ongoing 20th anniversary celebration, Empire magazine has lined up an impressive group of Hollywood A-listers to photograph in homage to the iconic movie characters they have made famous. Not surprisingly, many of those memorable roles come from the horror, sci-fi, and fantasy genres.
