welcome to total film

This issue I flew to LA to hang out with the Captain Marvel team and talk about everything but plot specifics as the MCU launches its first female-led film – and (hopefully) provides the answer to the question we were all asking last year: who can bring the Avengers back from the snap? Speaking of talented women flying high, we also grabbed a chat with Gemma Chan, to discuss her career post-Crazy Rich Asians, and Olivia Colman, who we hope nabs an Oscar this month. Plus, we talked frights with Jordan Peele, had coffee with Bill Nighy and tried to work out who had the most recognisable drawl out of The Highwaymen stars Kevin Costner and Woody Harrelson. And when we weren’t getting ahead on all the new movies incoming,…

total flim wingman

DEAR WINGMAN, In better days, you were an ally of Batman, but we’ve not seen you in any DCEU movies. So come on, what precisely is your superpower? Is it to occupy the less attractive half of a pair so that your mate can engage the hottie? Or is it to fly a plane to the side of the squadron leader? Or is it giving out seven lines of mollycoddling monthly advice to incurable moviegoing bedwetters?!? LOL! BILLY WILKINSON, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS… Not sure Wingman likes the tone of your LOL, Billy – he has no intention of coddling anyone’s mollies, least of all someone who calls our dear readers “bedwetters” (better that than having to go during the movie, right gang?). But thank you for the reminder of Wingman’s comic-book days…

While this may be a good thing for filmmakers, I think it’s bad for those of us who enjoy seeing a selection of ‘grown-up’ genre films on the big screen, and not just the 12A-rated blockbusters and animated fare that already dominate. MICHAEL HOLLAND, VIA EMAIL We feel a debate coming on… do others feel that the bell…

best western

I’m like a horse – an unpredictable animal,” smiles Jacques Audiard. “I like to be surprised by things and by a subject that I find interesting.” From his Fingers remake The Beat That My Heart Skipped, starring Romain Duris, to Oscar-nominated prison movie A Prophet, and from unconventional love story Rust And Bone to his Cannes-winner Dheepan, the French auteur certainly lives up to this capricious quality. Continuing this run is The Sisters Brothers, an eccentric outsider western that marks Audiard’s English-language debut. Adapted from Patrick deWitt’s 2011 novel, this unorthodox 1850-set gold rush tale sees John C. Reilly and Joaquin Phoenix play Eli and Charlie Sisters, sibling assassins who work for an Oregon mobster named the Commodore (Rutger Hauer). “It was a real page-turner and it just jumped out as…

olivia colman

To borrow from Olivia Colman’s Golden Globes speech last month: “Cor blimey.” In an increasingly impressive career, the beloved British actress has scooped Bifas, Baftas and Globes for everything from The Night Manager to Broadchurch. She’s also played opposite Meryl Streep’s Maggie Thatcher in The Iron Lady and broken hearts in Tyrannosaur. But this season it’s different: The Favourite has changed everything. Made with “a dollop of artistic licence”, Yorgos Lanthimos’ eccentric period piece has already won Colman Venice’s Best Actress and a Globe. By the end of February, she could make it a clean sweep – adding another Bafta, a Sag award and the all-important Oscar for playing Britain’s gout-afflicted Queen Anne. Not bad for a 45-year-old mother-of-three who lives with her husband in Peckham and started her career in…

power trip

01 Spidey’s back! Headlining some sort of benefit gig at which Pepper Potts (not Tony Stark, currently MIA, possibly RIP?) has donated $500,000, he’s still super-pals with his Aunt May (Marisa Tomei). 02 And he’s off to Europe! But what’s with the lack of a year on Peter’s (Tom Holland) passport? Could this be Marvel trying to conceal whether the film takes place before or after Infinity War’s snap? 03 “So nice to finally meet you, Spider-Man.” Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) hijacks Peter’s Vienna digs, tranqing roomie Ned (Jacob Batalon) to go for a night-time pep-talk. Is trouble afoot? 04 Er, yep! Now in London, Spidey shows off one of two new suits (the other is a black stealth onesie) before battling a storm-bound creature at Tower Bridge. This is presumably one of the four Elementals. 05 Heeere’s…
