welcome to total film the smarter movie magazine

Wat…er wonderful world, eh? Well, we hope – which is why we netted the cast of DC’s last gasp at injecting fun into its universe, Aquaman, to find out if James Wan’s eye-popping ocean spectacular will sink or swim. Above water, we stayed with mythical creatures as I tried to get any titbits out of the tight-lipped Fantastic Beasts 2 team (spoiler: there are no spoilers); we went on-set of Steve McQueen’s towering Widows; chatted with Matthew McConaughey and gang for White Boy Rick; mused about the cinematic importance of 2001: A Space Odyssey with Christopher Nolan; and chased down Joaquin Phoenix to talk through his eclectic career. Plus, we reached the final film decade of our ongoing series with the noughties and got nostalgic about Austin Powers with Mike…

MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR Was met by hordes of fans at a swanky Soho lunch; just as I was reaching for my Sharpie, I saw they were there for Justin Bieber… JORDAN FARLEY NEWS EDITOR Highlight of TIFF – witnessing Jamie Lee Curtis take to the stage after Halloween’s midnight premiere. The walk home at 2am was a knee-knocker. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR My interview with Jason Momoa was interrupted by an LA thunderstorm. “You’re in the safest room, bro – I’ve got you,” he quipped, like a true superhero.…

DEAR WINGMAN, Your (great) feature ‘20 Songs That Defined Cinema’ [TF277] got me to thinking… is there a song that has been (over)used in films? For me, the one song that comes to mind is ‘Beyond The Sea’, which for a time popped up in everything from Black Rain to GoodFellas and continues in everything water-related from Finding Nemo to The Meg. Though I’m sure Bobby Darin’s estate isn’t complaining… PHIL LAWRENCE, STEVENAGE WINGMAN SAYS… Oh, there’s enough to fill a triple album (‘Now That’s What I Call That Song From That Film’): ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, ‘Mr. Blue Sky’, ‘Gimme Shelter’, ‘All Star’, ‘Auld Lang Syne’, ‘Happy Birthday To You’… Perhaps the most overused in one year is Katy Perry’s ‘Firework’, which went off so heavily in 2012 that the fire brigade had to…

I’d pack it with Abba showstoppers not already used in the first two movies: so plenty of unforgettable B-sides, album fillers we skip and formulaic toe-tappers that sound a bit like the big hits but were never quite as good. All shoehorned into a hotel re-re-opening party with a bit of how’s and who’s your father, along with the amazing Cher playing a great-grandmother and her 17-year-old self in a flashback sequence… Voulez-vous wanna see that?!?

@TOTALFILM CAINE-ING IT bit.ly/2P4pACt Here at TF Towers, one theme has dominated 2018: pulverising cakes with mallets. This King Of Thieves number saw us get away with a major break-in (before necking the evidence). JOAQUIN PLAYS HIS JOKER bit.ly/2y8oePN “Shows they’re aiming for a Ledger feel,” admired Alan Barbarin of the first still from the Joker film. “He looks like a creative writing instructor,” said @BarryDAlbrecht. Just, um, kidding? WHO SHOULD BE SUPERMAN NEXT? bit.ly/2zLskzb “Ray Winstone” (@corconian); “Deadpool” (@NukaWoelk); “Me” (@Neil_Dev78). Lots of support for Cavill to stay Supes, though @chemalino suggested: “Daniel Craig. Straight swap with Bond.” DARK PHOENIX TRAILER: DISCUSS bit.ly/2y7AT5D “I thought it was great,” said Yiorgos Perris, following through with four exclamation marks. Others weren’t so sure: “Not happy with no Wolverine,” said Jonnyb57, but “I’ll probably watch it.” SOLO: A STAR AWWS STORY bit.ly/2Qocb8A Last month it was giant…

boy in the hood

When the trailer dropped for Otto Bathurst’s revisionist Robin Hood – starring Taron Egerton – confusion reigned, with the Mediterranean-looking Nottingham and machine-stitched hoodies greeted grumpily by cynics. “If you bring any historical expectation, you’re going to be very angry within 10 seconds,” says Bathurst, in London’s Soho Hotel. The British director is fully aware that his take on Robin Hood will antagonise purists. “It’s got some edge to it, it’s got a voice,” he argues. “It’s very different to any other [version].” Since the silent movie era, Nottingham’s iconic robber of the rich has reappeared on screen every decade, played by everyone from Errol Flynn to Kevin Costner. Most recently it was Russell Crowe in Ridley Scott’s 2010 movie. No wonder Egerton was reluctant when he was first approached. “I…
