welcome to total film the smarter movie magazine

Welcome to 2019! We’re promising to go through this year with all the wonderment of children, like our cover hero, Shazam. We reckon that with the bleakness of Brexit and the continued White House weirdness, this is the movie we need right now. Our office grinch Jamie was on set, and even he was infected with the sense of sheer fun. There was more glee to be found with our set visits to Instant Family and Alita: Battle Angel, plus I got to hang out with Armie Hammer to discuss the joy of food (among other things), while our very own James chatted up a storm with Steve Carell – on fire right now with Beautiful Boy, Welcome To Marwen and Vice all coming out in the awards corridor. And…

call sheet

JOSH WINNING CONTRIBUTING EDITOR Alexander Skarsgård brightened up a very cold, muddy Hamburg day on the set of The Aftermath. He was smiley, chatty, tall and an all-round lovely chap. JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Visited Abbey Road Studios for this month’s How To Train Your Dragon story and geeked out in the room where John Williams recorded his Raiders score. JAMIE GRAHAM EDITOR-AT-LARGE I felt like a big kid when I visited the set of Shazam!, in Toronto, for this month’s cover story, hanging out with Zachary Levi and wielding the wizard’s staff.…

total film wingman

DEAR WINGMAN, I’ve recently been watching the post-apocalyptic likes of the Mad Max movies and The Domestics. They made me think – if gasoline is so rare in these scenarios, why is the mode of transport normally a muscle car, which does 10 miles per gallon? Is it because even in a barren wasteland, looking good in a V8 Interceptor is better than doing 70mpg in a self-recharging Prius hybrid? DEV ORTON, LEEDS WINGMAN SAYS… Dev, you’ve answered your own question, thereby saving Wingman a job – we’d like to award you the last, slightly battered Twirl in the selection box. Yes – the end of the world is no excuse for not keeping up appearances; even Max’s wild dog wouldn’t be seen dead without his natty red neckerchief, like a corpse-scavenging Cary Grant.…

But for 2019, I’ve decided to aim for one achievable and enjoyable goal. A goal that encompasses a little decision-making (what to see), a workout (getting to the cinema), orientation (finding my seat in the dark), relaxation (deluxe seating) and entertainment (hopefully). Yes, I’m talking about getting my ass to the cinema more often. Boom! Off to a flying start with the likes of The Favourite, Welcome To Marwen, The…

knight school

Did you spend maths lessons daydreaming about blowing up the Death Star? While away assemblies deciding what you’d do with a DeLorean? Attack The Block writer/director Joe Cornish was no different, but he’s putting his high school reveries – in which he imagined himself the descendent of Arthur Pendragon – to good use in family-friendly adventure The Kid Who Would Be King. “I had exactly that fantasy,” Cornish says, talking to Teasers while sat on a throne (read: really fancy armchair) in London’s Soho Hotel. “I was bullied, and then I dreamt of finding Excalibur. So it was half a fantasy, half a protoplasmic idea for a film.” Cornish’s Arthurian ambitions were inspired by a formative viewing of John Boorman’s Excalibur in the summer of ’81, a film he declares “phenomenal” before…

the big finish

01 “Part of the journey is the end,” says Tony Stark, stranded in space aboard the Guardians’ ship with a busted exo-suit and less than 24 hours of oxygen left. Things don’t look too rosy for T-Bone. 02 After successfully executing “The Decimation” (per official Marvel parlance), Thanos has hung up the armour but still wears the charred remains of the Infinity Gauntlet. Is he expecting company? 03 “He wiped out 50 per cent of all living creatures,” says Black Widow, as Bruce Banner mourns missing heroes Scott Lang, Peter Parker and Black Panther’s Shuri, her fate confirmed. 04 Hawkeye returns! Sort of. Under the guise of Ronin, Clint looks to be cleaning up shop in Tokyo. From his haunted expression, it’s a fair bet his family didn’t survive the Snap. 05 “This is…
