welcome to total film

It’s 2021 and we are readying ourselves for the mother of all movie years after the drought of 2020. It’s going to be so big and burly in cinematic terms, we could only think of one franchise to head up our 2021 preview – the most bombastic and bonkers of them all, Fast & Furious 9. Get your engines ready for even more cinematic scope and excitement, cos we’re covering everything you can get in your eyes – hopefully on the big screen – over the next 12 months. And guys, it’s not ALL Disney… This month, I sat down with two powerhouse performers to discuss their careers, Rosamund Pike and Vanessa Kirby, both of whom have thought-provoking movies out this year. I also had a conversation with another pair of…

JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Caught up with Vin Diesel and John Cena for this month’s F9 feature and asked the question everyone wants to know: who can knock back more bottles of Corona? JAMES MOTTRAM CONTRIBUTING EDITOR Emily Blunt had to explain to The Rock that “crotchety” was a Britishism for grumpiness and not a situation in one’s crotch during my Jungle Cruise interviews. JANE CROWTHER EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Rosamund Pike asked as many questions as I did during our chat. She finished our conversation by quizzing me on the best Christmas movies she should watch.…

DEAR WINGMAN Why is it that when I watch Blurays at night I have to use subtitles? I have to keep the volume down due to any action, music, unnecessarily enigmatic animals, etc. Therefore the dialogue is always whispery, like the characters know others are asleep. I’m not too tech-savvy, so my attempts to rectify this are always to no avail. Do I need an expensive sound system? Or is there a way to turn up just the dialogue? PETE, YORK WINGMAN SAYS.. Over to our noise expert, Din-man: “You might try poking around in the TV set-up menus; some brands feature dedicated dialogue-boosting settings, while others have different listening modes for different types of content (films, music, etc). Or check out the Blu-ray menus themselves. As well as 5.1 mixes, there may also…

As he begins flicking through a new tome for 2021, I think I can hear him say, “By the beard of Zeus, so many bloomin’ good movies! Dune, A Quiet Place Part II…” Followed by, “I’ll go to the foot of Olympus’ stairs! Top Gun: Maverick, West Side Story, Jungle Cruise…” And then, “Ooh, lo and behold: Last Night In Soho, Minions 2, Venom: Let There Be Carnage… And good to see a few old…

1 STAR WARS 10 December 2020 will be a day long remembered… After the divisive sequels and The Mandalorian’s restorative successes, Disney’s Investor Day announced sundry new beginnings for matters Force-related, including a prequels reunion. Set 10 years post-Revenge Of The Sith, Obi-Wan Kenobi will see Ewan McGregor’s Old-ish Ben re-encountering Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader, whose return comes with director Deborah Chow’s tease: the former buddies with braids will “get into it again”. Diego Luna will also fight again in “spy thriller”-y (says Kathleen Kennedy) Rogue One spin-off Andor. Meanwhile, The Mando brings us two new babies in the much-wanted Ahsoka and Rangers of The New Republic, leading to a ‘climactic story event’. Elsewhere, Lando and High Republic-era “mystery thriller” The Acolyte are incoming, as are three animated shows: The Bad Batch,…

The first time I saw the suit I thought, ‘This could be the suit I die in,’” Chris Evans told us from the set of Captain America: The First Avenger. A decade on, it’s safe to say Evans owned that suit. And he will soon own another suit, as worn by another American (and fleetingly Spanish) hero. A minor storm in a spacesuit emerged at news that Evans would voice Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s Lightyear. What about Tim Allen? But Evans soon issued reassuring words from Instagram: “Everyone can rest easy... it doesn’t step on a single thing.” And when the man who aced the tonal high-wire act of Cap (and made light of a recent, er, accidental online exposure) advises optimism, it’s best to sit back and, like he says,…
