welcome to total film

The cinemas are back and so is The Suicide Squad. We’re getting our gang together for a trip to the pictures, and we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate a return to the cinematic community than a big, bombastic, bonkers blockbuster like SS. We can tell you secrets (but not all or a shark will rip us in two) in our big, luxurious chat with everyone involved. Speaking of blockbusters, we were also on set of Army Of The Dead and A Quiet Place Part II, plus we talked to filmmakers Ben Wheatley and Robin Wright about their movies set in nature… with very different results. And we’re raising a glass to recent award-winner and impeccable Bond baddie, Mads Mikkelsen, with an in-depth chat about his career. Plus…

RICHARD EDWARDS CONTRIBUTOR James Gunn and The Suicide Squad seem a match made in heaven, so it’s been fun getting the intel on DC’s latest mission. I can’t say what went down on set – yet... JANE CROWTHER EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Enjoyed swapping bear stories with Robin Wright. She definitely won with her daily ‘Yogi Bear’; my run-in involved a grizzly opening a car to eat toothpaste. JAMIE GRAHAM CONTRIBUTING EDITOR I zoomed with Ben Wheatley who immediately spotted my signed Kill List poster in the background. “You stuck that up two minutes ago, didn’t you?” he said. (I didn’t.)…

DEAR WINGMAN Milla Jovovich? Check. Paul W.S. Anderson? Check. Videogame franchise? Check. High likelihood of cheesy dialogue and a plot that in no way resembles said game? Double check. Me seething because the rest of the world seems to be able to watch it but I can’t? Check. It can only be Monster Hunter. I know videogame adaps can be an easy target for critics, but I have a soft spot for the Milla/Paul ones: Resident Evil was the first DVD I ever bought. I’m starting a petition for them to release Monster Hunter in the UK. Who’s with me? THOMAS ELLIS, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS... The release calendar is with you, Thomas; at time of writing (ie please don’t shout at Wingman if things change), the film’s set for 18 June in…

Capone is a dead ringer for Bugs Bunny (even down to the carrots); Venom’s Eddie Brock apes Elmer Fudd; and Foghorn Leghorn was surely the inspo for The Revenant’s Fitzgerald. The Krays in Legend are basically Sylvester and Tweetie Pie, while Mad Max is (Fury) Road Runner. And there’s got to be a Pepé Le Pew homage for when he inevitably plays Napoleon.ELLIE PALMER-HARGREAVES,…

hell or holy water

We wanted to blow the doors off the haunted house. Up until now, these movies have existed inside a certain type of framework,” director Michael Chaves tells Teasers, recalling early conversations he had with The Conjuring Universe’s creator and former captain James Wan, while they worked together on the saga’s seventh entry, The Curse Of La Llorona. “We were desperate to take them beyond that,” he says. “[David Fincher’s] Se7en is one of our favourites and we were excited by the challenge of doing something along those lines – something surrounding an investigation – within the series, while still using all that supernatural terminology and language.” Like its predecessors, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It takes inspiration from the case files of the Warrens, real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine,…

Before Steven Yeun’s Glenn Rhee died, he made a promise to his lover: “Maggie, I’ll find you…” Instead, the 37-year-old actor has devoted the time since his years as The Walking Dead’s big-hearted zombie survivor to finding roles that upend expectation, delivering him to a richer sense of what he can be. If Glenn had begun to resemble a repository of goodness rather than a complex character, Yeun wanted more: “I’ve got to feel full,” he told GQ. “I’ve got to feel real.” That pursuit of fullness is paying off big time. Lately, it has steered Yeun to the first Best Actor Oscar nomination for an Asian-American man courtesy of Lee Isaac Chung’s quietly profound Minari. In this sensitive pioneer drama, Yeun brings an acute and unforced sensitivity to the role…
