welcome to total film the smarter movie magazine

Here she comes! For real this time. Yep, Black Widow is back for her standalone movie and we couldn’t be happier. Not only to see such a strong female character finally get her own story, but also because for a while there it looked iffy as to when we might see Natasha kick ass. As cinemas in the UK get back to a new normal, it’s exciting to chat to the cast and crew of Black Widow about Marvel’s latest being available to watch communally, in the dark. [shiver with anticipation] Get your popcorn ready for that and other big-screen treats in this issue; we’re setting sail with Kenneth Branagh for Death On The Nile, going South with Antebellum and chatting to Han Solo and Logan Roy. Plus, I went…

JACK SHEPHERD ONLINE ENTS EDITOR Midway through my Zoom call with Scar-Jo, my internet cut out - it looked like I hung up on one of the world’s biggest film stars. She patiently waited for me to return. MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR Loved being back in a public cinema for Tenet. Idents! Trailers! More idents! And it must have been the first time ever that nobody coughed… JANE CROWTHER EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Many stars don’t let you see their homes on Zoom but Annette Bening sat in her gorgeous office and chatted animatedly about the Damian Elwes painting on her wall.…

DEAR WINGMAN Having just rewatched the ‘91 classic Toy Soldiers for the first time in a while, it occurred to me that even though I know full well everything’s going to be fine, the part where Sean Astin has to get back to the school without the terrorists realising still has me on the edge of my seat! Anyone else find that happens to them? PETE RENDER, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS… To quote ‘90s philosopher-trip-hoppers Olive, You’re Not Alone, Pete. Even with all his centuries of movie-watching experience – not saying he’s old, but he can remember getting stoked for “the new Méliès” – Wingman still gets caught up in the moment. Will lightning zap the DeLorean on cue? Will Rocky get to his feet before Apollo??? We need a lie-down on some…

But if there is one good thing to come out of the current situation, it’s that quite a few classic movies are being shown on the big screen. I recently caught Alien for the first time at the cinema (I’ve seen it a million times) and it was truly terrifying. I’ve never really found it all that scary but in the cinema, on a big screen with big sound, it scared the pants off me. It just goes to show that it’s near-impossible to replicate the big-screen experience…

pain and wayne

After San Diego Comic-Con’s attempt at an online-only convention failed to capture the buzz of being on the hallowed ground of Hall H, it was left to DC to prove that cons can still work in the Covid era. And the inaugural Fandome did not disappoint. An eight-hour livestream featuring some of DC’s biggest upcoming hitters – including panels on Wonder Woman 1984, The Flash, Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Black Adam and The Suicide Squad – Fandome saved the best for last: a first glimpse at The Batman. The gritty teaser, assembled from just “25–30 per cent” of the film (the UK shoot was suspended in March due to Covid shutdowns), gave us our first official look at Paul Dano’s re-imagined Riddler, an unrecognisable Colin Farrell as The Penguin, Zoë Kravitz’s…

chadwick boseman

The last time we saw Chadwick Boseman was in Spike Lee’s Vietnam movie Da 5 Bloods. Boseman’s righteous Stormin’ Norman is a fallen soldier, remembered as the embodiment of both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. His hunched shoulders seem to bear the trauma of history. But he carries that with power and pride. You can’t help but wonder how much of himself the actor poured into that role. We now know that Boseman, who passed on 28 August, had been fighting stage four colon cancer since 2016, mustering superhuman determination to keep working between surgery and chemotherapy. One of the final images he would give us of himself is a parting grace note. We see Stormin’ Norman’s ghost, bathing in mist and sunlight, his body frail but his chin…
