ON THE MENU: Hunger is a new biannual glossy being launched by Rankin. The title’s launch issue, due to hit newsstands internationally on Thursday, offers two cover options, featuring either Welsh actor Rhys Ifans brandishing a dagger close to his face or American singer Sky Ferreira. The British photographer shot most of the 512-page issue, which carries no advertising. Features include a profile of actor Terence Stamp, who discusses his not-so-smooth start in acting; a story on a villager living in a remote area in Kenya, and an interview with evergreen model Erin O’Connor. A mixed cast from the fashion and music realms was lined up for the fashion shoots, including Heidi Klum, Kelis and Milla Jovovich. Hunger’s digital platform, hungertv.com, will screen exclusive content and behind-the-scenes films of the shoots in the magazine. With a cover price of 7.99 euros, or $10.86 at current exchange, the new title will start off with a print run of 100,000.
