welcome to total film

OMG, there’s sooooo much to be excited about in comic-book movies right now and we’ve corralled every film you need to start counting down to in our annual round-up. To do that we got an exclusive audience in LA with Joker’s Joaquin Phoenix and Todd Phillips, plus ate our bodyweight in burgers in Hall H at SDCC to get every tidbit on every movie announced. But it’s not just comic-book action – we also dived into what it takes to transform Renée Zellweger into Judy Garland (fascinating), went on set of Official Secrets, met up with Sienna Miller and spent time with Kick-Ass himself, Aaron Taylor-Johnson. That’s when we weren’t arguing over the greatest comic-book villains ever in our new podcast, Inside Total Film – which premieres 20 August and…

MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR My Comic-Con highlight was the Marvel panel/Kevin Smith panel double whammy: Earth’s mightiest heroes followed by Earth’s mightiest dick jokes. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR I know it’s not always cool to request a photo with the talent, but I couldn’t meet a true legend and miss this opportunity. Thankfully, Shaun was a good sport. JAMIE GRAHAM EDITOR-AT-LARGE I had a great time hooking up with Joaquin Phoenix in LA to go deep on Joker. Being a PTA obsessive, I had an even better time after, chatting all things, well, PTA.…

DEAR WINGMAN We all enjoy a good car chase. But what is going to happen after 2022? The EU is set to impose speed limiters on all new vehicles – and whatever happens with Brexit, the British government has said it will still impose EU legislation! Though at first the limiters will be able to be overridden, this is only a brief concession until they take total control. So, the end of the car chase? James Bond driving a slow, regulated Eurobox just does not seem quite the same! TERRY HUDSON, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS… Either all car chases will have to take place pre-2022 (“Take the Quantum Realm, second left!”) or we’ll just have to get used to Q fobbing our hero off with a milk float (“To go into stealth mode, remove…

STAR LETTER ★ While watching the not-very-good The Intruder, a poor film made worse by its soundtrack, my wife wondered why they can’t make movies where you choose the music. I agreed: you can switch the audio to a director’s commentary on Blu-ray, so why not the option of a bit of classic rock instead of rap or R&B? That way we could enjoy watching Rocky V with a Bill Conti score instead! DEV ORTON, LEEDS TBH, we’d rather have Rocky V with just the music and not the pictures… but a ‘select soundtrack’ option does sound feasible, especially in these days of silent screenings. You could have The Greatest Showman slathered over everything from Hobbs & Shaw to the new Mike Leigh – or alternatively, Hugh and co silenced by some soothing…

This movie is a leap of faith,” says Ang Lee, with the nervous laughter of a man who’s just spent millions of dollars stepping into the unknown, and is about to show Teasers the fruits of his labour. No stranger to the boundary-pushing technological vanguard, his latest film, Gemini Man, arrives later this year with a full suite of movie-making bells and whistles: native 3D, 4K resolution, 120 frames per second photography… Oh, and the most realistic digital human ever committed to film. No, your eyes aren’t playing tricks, that is a fully computer-generated, 23-year-old Will Smith you see above these words. Unlike digital de-aging, which uses the actor as a basis and (to put it very simply) smoothes out the wrinkles, Gemini Man’s ‘Junior’ is driven by Smith’s performance, but…
