Metro magazine hits news stands on Monday with a new look and a gatefold cover featuring the stars of Outrageous Fortune… naked.

The cover promotes a unique photographic series inside the magazine - a tribute to a selection of iconic New Zealand movies.

Actors from Outrageous Fortune portray characters from films including The Piano, Once Were Warriors and Goodbye Pork Pie in scenes captured by some of the country’s leading photographers.

Metro editor Bevan Rapson says the magazine wanted to try something very different for the issue that launches a new reader-friendly format. “The film tribute was an ambitious project but we’re delighted with the results.

“The cover shoot in particular was a left-field idea that was turned into reality thanks to an inspired creative team and, importantly, to the actors who generously embraced the project, trusted Metro to produce something memorable and were brave enough to bare all.”
