welcome to total film

This issue, we awoke sleeping titans – well, Matt Maytum – to dispatch him to the world of Godzilla and his monster mates to find out what scaly delights are in store for us in this growing universe. We sent Jamie Graham across the globe to corner Long Shot stars Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron for a cheeky chat (when he wasn’t on the set of creepy Pet Sematary, or catching up with bona-fide legend Richard Gere). Jordan Farley got the ‘Gucci’ on must-see indie Eighth Grade, Matt (again) hung out with Jonah Hill, and I had an entertaining chinwag with Charlie Hunnam about slipped discs, packed lunches and stealing motorbikes. That was when we weren’t running around like crazy during Bafta and Oscar week. All in the service of…

MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR Spotted: Neil from The Inbetweeners at The Lego Movie 2 . Luckily, I refrained from shouting, “How much Lego can you stick up your bum?” JAMIE GRAHAM EDITOR-AT-LARGE My chat with Charlize Theron and Seth Rogen started late because Seth had vanished. Charlize and I made small talk until he was found… waiting patiently in the wrong room. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR Was great fun talking to Godzilla: King Of The Monsters director Michael Dougherty, who promises lots of Easter eggs. “I reward people for paying attention.”…

I settle down to read these interviews, full of admiration for these people who are at the top of their craft, but end up thinking, “How old are they – six?” When interviewing these stars, can’t you ask them to speak like grown-ups? Thank you. MARC SHREEVE, BRAINTREE One is sometimes tempted to be more Poppins…

home invasion

Science fiction may have taken over the movie world, but with sequels, prequels, adaptations, reboots and preboots (they’re a thing) being the big money spinners, original sci-fi movies are an increasingly rare proposition. Rupert Wyatt is no stranger to franchise filmmaking – he helmed 2011’s Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes – so the “privilege” and chance to build a world with his new film, Captive State, was not lost on the Brit director. “The fact they bet on me – I’m just very lucky, I guess,” acknowledges Wyatt, talking to Teasers over the phone from his home in Hudson, New York. “Not just in terms of being able to get something made of my own in this genre. But looking to subvert the genre and do something a little…

With Get Out, there was always the feeling that this will never actually get made,” says Jordan Peele. “I always said that the best thing that could come from Get Out was that I’d get to make another movie.” And a TV show. And a web series. And to star in the shiny new instalment of the most beloved animation franchise in history. Yes, such was Get Out’s critical and commercial success (grossing $255m from a $4.5m budget) that Peele instantly went from being the funny man (Key And Peele, Keanu) who, oddly, wanted to direct a horror movie, to the Hollywood hottie who can make whatever he damn pleases. Weird City has already dropped, on YouTube Premium last month. A comedy science-fiction anthology series, it consists of six episodes, each set…

mothers’ slay

Long ago there was a lady named Maria, the most beautiful woman in all of Mexico. She married a wealthy ranchero and bore him two sons. But when Maria found her husband in the arms of another, she snapped and, in a moment of madness, drowned her children. When she came to her senses she was so grief-stricken she hurled herself into the river, and was cursed to walk the Earth for all eternity, searching for the souls of her children – or any others unfortunate enough to cross her path… That’s the legend of the Weeping Woman and the basis of The Curse Of La Llorona – the debut feature from director Michael Chaves. “There are a lot of different versions of the tale,” says Chaves when asked to explain…
