welcome to total film

Brush off your DJ, pull out your gown… it’s awards season – albeit a very different one from previous years. This issue, we’re looking at how the gong landscape has changed in these strangest of times, and hanging out with three Oscar-winners in our cover feature – for a movie that’s a ‘90s throwback in the best way. The Little Things is part Manhunter, part Silence Of The Lambs, a pinch of True Detective… creepy, classy and loaded with juicy face-offs. Just the sort of intimate film we’re sitting down to at home (still) as we wait out the end of the virus – yes, monster-budget blockbusters, we know you’re out there, and we can wait until you (and cinemas) are back. We also caught up with other awards-bothers, Zendaya…

JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Excited to reveal I briefly appear as an extra in next month’s SAS: Red Notice, starring Sam Heughan. I’ll now be going by Jordan Day-Lewis. LEILA LATIF CONTRIBUTOR Loved talking to Aubrey Plaza, and as she’s about to make a film with Jason Statham, I recommended she do a deep dive into YouTube videos from his career as a high diver. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR Olivia Colman was concerned about my home office/Harry Potter cupboard set-up: “I’m worried that someone’s going to come in that door and hit you on the back of the head.”…

DEAR WINGMAN I can’t be the only person out there who misses the deep, gravelly voice that used to dramatically announce statements on almost every movie trailer, can I? Bring him back, I say! BEN CROOKS, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS... [Reedy trailer voice] “Meet Ben. Ben loves the movies [montage of Ben laughing/whooping/wailing at cinema screen]. But the one thing Ben loves more than the movies is… [fades to black, switches to booming trailer-guy voice] THE TRAILERS!” [Ben explodes] Alas, the chap you’re most likely referring to, Don LaFontaine (aka Thunder Throat and The King Of Movie Trailers), sadly passed away in 2008. However, a sample of his volcanic voice artistry is but a YouTube search away (he reportedly worked on more than 5,000 trailers and ads), or you can check out Lake…

My question is, why are all the new shows predominantly about the good guys? I’d love to see a Mandalorian-type show that focuses on the Sith Lords of old and delves into Palpatine’s backstory. There must be a reason the Sith exists. Why is there a Dark Side of the Force? How does it cultivate different abilities? How did it start? Who was Darth Plagueis the Wise and how did he come about? I just think people like the brilliant Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau…

One of the first films conceived, scripted, shot and soon to be released in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, Locked Down is a film inextricably intertwined with our current moment. “Part of the energy you feel in Locked Down is that Boris Johnson was shutting London down around us while we were shooting,” Liman tells Teasers from a farmhouse just outside the capital where, appropriately enough, he’s been in lockdown since the start of the pandemic. “I didn’t know if we would be able to finish the movie.” Shot in just 18 days – partly because filming could be closed down at any moment due to a virus they had no control over, and partly because Liman shot his ’96 classic Swingers in precisely the same amount of time –…

When Sebastian Stan’s Bucky Barnes became the Winter Soldier, some style adjustments were needed. Hair extensions, a metal sleeve for his arm, some lube to squeeze it on when his biceps got too sick… Now, a raucous remix of said ingredients is suggested by his next role: as a hair-metal trouble-causer whose peak-celeb infamy probably involved sex aids. For Hulu eight-parter Pam & Tommy, Stan will play Tommy Lee, the Mötley Crüe star whose appetite for attention (like playing drum solos upside-down live) got more than it bargained for when his and Pamela Anderson’s sex tapes leaked. As with Lily James’ intriguingly left-field casting as Baywatch’s Anderson, the role is a tantalising pick for Stan. Reuniting him with I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie, the series offers the Romania-born actor another chance…
