welcome to total film

This month I’ve been flitting between film festivals, starting in Toronto (see page 22) - where I met one of Hollywood’s nicest people, Tom Hanks, to discuss A Beautiful Day In The Neighbourhood - and ending in London, where I was on the star-studded LFF jury. That meant a lot of time in screening rooms, contemplating the transportive joy of cinema. And films don’t come more transportive than Jumanji 2, a follow-up to the monster hit. Dwayne Johnson and pals tell us how they upped the ante (and laughs) for a second instalment. I also sat down with the thoroughly charming Edward Norton to talk through his career (including The Incredible Hulk), and we chatted to Rian Johnson about his delicious whodunit, Knives Out, as well as Matt Damon and…

call sheet

MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR Asked Paloma Faith what we can expect from new series Pennyworth. “Lots of bum-sniffing,” she replied. Holy leg-pull, Batman! (I think.) JAMES MOTTRAM CONTRIBUTING EDITOR Timothée Chalamet has a great memory. He always remembers me when we meet – even from One & Two, when he was just setting out. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR Had a brilliant time at the Toronto International Film Festival again. Yeah, the films are great, but have you ever tried poutine? [Chips, curd and gravy – Ed]…

total film wingman

DEAR WINGMAN I recently awoke from a period of suspended animation lasting more than 50 years and naturally wanted to catch up with the latest movie releases. Checking out the schedules, I ringed three films I fancied, which I believe were a Hitchcock sequel (Angry Birds Movie 2), a Hollywood movie musicals compilation (Once Upon A Time In…) and Dumbo (is that still showing?). Can you please give me a steer? DAVID W, VIA EMAIL WINGMAN SAYS… The big question isn’t what to watch now (the Tarantino, obvs, though AB2’s ‘stealing a key card in the urinals’ is one of ’19’s finest scenes)… but what will we be watching in 50 years? Will ‘watching’ even be a thing, or will we do something more sci-fi-y, like ‘assimilating’ movies? Will robo-ushers tear not your ticket,…

I say, alphabetical all the way! Although it’s very OCD, I’ll admit. And it does attract drunken morons at house parties to swap discs around. I’ve found some very inappropriate titles in family-movie covers. Put it this way, I don’t recall Elizabeth Berkley being in Matilda! RUSS TRIBE, FAREHAM Nor do we recall Danny DeVito doing saucy things with poles in Showgirls… Perhaps your pals were inspired by the footy/‘home video’ switcheroo in Trainspotting?…

no way out

What to do, after directing the biggest film of all time? If you’re the Russo brothers, hot off Avengers: Endgame, you pay it forward. The first feature from the Russos’ studio AGBO Films, post-MCU, 21 Bridges is a Manhattan-set manhunt movie made by, and starring, superhero royalty. “[21 Bridges] was an opportunity to try and create Chadwick Boseman’s first great role post-Black Panther,” says director Brian Kirk. “He took the movie to a place I had hoped for, but could never presume.” Boseman stars as veteran ’tec Andre Davis, a man “shaped by circumstance”, according to Kirk. Davis specialises in hunting cop killers, motivated by the fact his own police-officer father was murdered on duty when Andre was a child. So, when eight officers are gunned down in a shootout with…
