welcome to total film

She’s back…finally! Wonder Woman returns to screens (hopefully) and our inside track on what makes this sequel (equal) even more compelling is a juicy read. But that’s not all that’s going to get you stoked for cinema (home or public) with our looks at Charlize Theron’s new ass-kicker, The Old Guard, a career chat with legend Mark Rylance, the science of time travel explained (sorta) and two digital mags to test the brain matter and kickstart the ’80s nostalgia. And a small celebration this issue… Total Film turns 300. Though our covers have changed (thankfully, in some cases, see page 49) since we started out back in 1997, we still roll with the same scrappy DNA now as then. That means we still have the most trusted reviews in the…

call sheet

JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Best interview moment of the month was Charlize Theron having to pause our chat when her child burst into the room with an important question: “Can I have some gum?” JAMES MOTTRAM CONTRIBUTING EDITOR Loved chatting to Mark Rylance when he pitched up at the Zurich Film Festival. No star ego whatsoever. He really is the living embodiment of the Big Friendly Giant. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR Asked Pedro Pascal about working with Baby Yoda. “I saw this adorable creature and thought immediately, ‘Oh, this is a home run. People are going to lose their shit.’”…

total film wingman

DEAR WINGMAN I watched Extraction the other night, and while I thoroughly enjoyed Chris Hemsworth kicking ass in an ’80s-movie ‘stylee’, I couldn’t believe that the end credits rolled on and on for 14 minutes! Even Marvel’s end credits, with their ace bonus scenes, don’t last that long. Is this some kind of record? Does Extraction gain credit for having the longest credits ever? I would Google it, but I can’t be bothered. PHIL SLOAN, BEXLEY WINGMAN SAYS… Never Google something when you can ask ol’ Wingman, aka the inter-not. Fourteen mins is surely a record for a patchy actioner about a man named after a garden implement, but it’s not world-beating. The ‘fan-club credits’ of The Fellowship Of The Ring Extended Edition run 20 foot-hair-growing mins, while 2018 Argentine epic La Flor takes…

mail, rants, theories etc.

STAR LETTER It’s just occurred to me that the upcoming ‘Snyder Cut’ of Justice League might reveal things about Alfred that we’ve previously been denied. Consider that Bruce Wayne pretty much destroys every vehicle he uses in Batman V Superman and Justice League. By my count, that totals two Batmobiles, one Batwing, one Knightcrawler and one Flying Fox. And if we also consider Alfred is the poor so-and-so who has to build/fix these vehicles, either we’re going to get some new scenes revealing him as a superhuman… or he’s more put-upon than we thought! MICHAEL DEMETRIOU, CRAWLEY Mr. Pennyworth has always seemed something of an Alf-pha… perhaps there’s a new scene where someone asks who exactly made this endless convoy of Bat-conveyances, and Bruce replies… “The butler did it.” OK, time to stop…

’lan of duty

When news first broke that Disney had greenlit a live-action remake of the 1998 animation Mulan, which featured captivating songs and a wise-cracking dragon sidekick voiced by Eddie Murphy, many may have expected a slavishly faithful recreation of the beloved original. After all, neither Guy Ritchie’s live-action Aladdin nor Jon Favreau’s The Lion King did much to deviate, and both went on to earn more than $1 billion at the global box office. However, a musical was never on the cards for Mulan. “Honestly, that was never a discussion I had with Disney,” director Niki Caro confirms to Teasers. Instead, Caro turned to the source. “Both myself and the studio were really committed to honour the DNA of the 1998 animation and the centuries-old Ballad Of Mulan – on which the…

Maybe it’s just time to stop,” said Cate Blanchett, ever the tease, reflecting on the sheer range of her filmography in a recent convo with Julia Roberts. Or maybe it’s not, going by Blanchett’s upcoming work. With high-grade TV gigs lately under her belt, the two-time Oscar winner is ready to stretch the reach of her sprawling career, one that already spans from Elizabethan England to Asgard and beyond. “I’m constantly interested in opening unexpected, invisible doors,” she says of her film choices. While she feared typecasting following her Oscarnominated break-out in 1998’s Elizabeth, Blanchett’s pursuit of fresh challenges took her to prestige fare (The Aviator, Blue Jasmine), iconoclastic indie work (as Bob Dylan in I’m Not There), genre tentpoles (Indiana Jones, The Lord Of The Rings, Thor: Ragnarok) and more…
