welcome to total film the smarter movie magazihe

If I could use a time-travelling phone booth I’d go back to my schoolgirl self and tell her: “Great news! In the future you’ll meet the stars of that movie you’re obsessed with and they’re most excellent dudes.” Yep, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are everything you’d hope from Bill and Ted; clearly very close, charming and self-effacing. Sadly they didn’t shout ‘No way!’ in unison at any point, but read our feature on page 28 and you’ll get a sense of how much love has gone into bringing Bill & Ted Face The Music into being and I promise you’ll get warm fuzzies. Plenty of other stuff in this issue to give you a good feeling too; cinema’s greatest besties, Flash Gordon at 40, Pitch Black at 20, Umbrella…

call sheet

JAMIE GRAHAM EDITOR-AT-LARGE I met Joel Schumacher twice during his topsy-turvy career. The second time was one of my all-time favourite interviews. The first was a disaster. More on page 46. JAMES MOTTRAM CONTRIBUTING EDITOR Thoroughly enjoyed chatting with an unfiltered Ron Perlman over Zoom, who – to quote Boris Johnson – looks fitter than a butcher’s dog. I want to look like him at 70! MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR Always a thrill when a star eschews assistants and calls directly, like Bryan Cranston did. Although I resisted the urge to tell him my cat is named after Walter White.…

DEAR WINGMAN I fear the prolonged lockdown/ isolation has caused me to suffer from a serious bout of bad taste. I found myself enjoying Gemini Man the other day, and just last week had a whale of a time watching Cats. As I write I’m sitting through the credits of Godzilla: King Of The Monsters thinking what a masterclass in filmmaking it was. Is there anything you can do to help? Maybe a film equivalent of mouthwash you can recommend? TOM ELLIS, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS… To paraphrase – OK, mangle – a quote from Star Trek, I’m a Wingman, Tom, not a pharmacist. Don’t feel bad about your taste; such a subjective thing. Unless we’re talking about the TF verdict, which needs to go ahead of the certificate at the start of…

Huge congrats on 23 years and 300 issues. I wanted to try something special to mark such a milestone. My copies have always been kept neatly on a bookcase, until today. I wanted to show my loyalty with a photo of me surrounded by 300 issues, and guessed this would take an hour to sort out… everything was back to normal after about 4.5 hours (or 1.25 viewings of Titanic). Keep up the great work. I’ve always loved your…

I really didn’t want to do the second one at all, because I didn’t know that I could find something as pure to me,” says writer/director John Krasinski, whose 2018 horror movie A Quiet Place crept out of nowhere to score a deafening box-office kerching – $341m from a modest $17m budget. Krasinki, still best known to many as Jim Halpert from The Office, describes the first film as “a love letter to my children”. And while that might seem odd given it possesses terrifying alien creatures that hunt their human prey by sound in a post-apocalyptic world, it makes sense when you consider that it focused squarely on the Abbott family – dad Lee (Krasinki), mum Evelyn (Krasinski’s real-life spouse Emily Blunt), daughter Regan (Millicent Simmonds) who is deaf, and…

It’s amazing that people are still sticking by me. When they come up to me in the street, I want to write them all cheques.” So said Michael Keaton when he made a major comeback playing washed-up superhero actor Riggan in 2014 hit Birdman. It was a success he built on, playing antagonist Adrian ‘Vulture’ Toomes in Spider-Man: Homecoming, and landing roles in the upcoming Aaron Sorkin drama The Trial Of The Chicago 7 and superhero movie Morbius (perhaps playing Vulture again). Well, he’s going to need a bigger chequebook now, because there will be a lot more people coming up to him: Keaton, at 68, is in talks to reprise his role as Batman. He of course played the Caped Crusader in Tim Burton’s seminal Batman in 1989, and again three…
