welcome to total film the smarter movie magazine

Swing into the summer blockbuster season like Spidey this issue as we go on-set of Tom Holland’s sophomore solo outing, Far From Home. To Venice, no less. Sort of. By the magic of movies, our very own Matthew Leyland enjoyed la dolce vita alongside Mr. Holland. That report kicks off our huge blockbuster preview, looking at all the incoming biggies. And when we weren’t checking out It Chapter Two (shiver) and Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, or chatting to Matt Smith about penis pictures, or getting the gossip on hot TV (Killing Eve S2, Big Little Lies S2, Jessica Jones S3…), we were racing from screening to interview to, OK, glasses of rosé at Cannes. We’ll be sharing all that in future issues (not the wine). We also saw…

MATTHEW LEYLAND REVIEWS EDITOR “There’s no new costume,” says Tom Holland on the set of Far From Home. But we’ve already seen it, says TF. “Are you serious?! See, I tried to keep it a secret…” JAMIE GRAHAM EDITOR-AT-LARGE Went to Cannes Film Festival and forgot to take a jacket. Then lost my belt in a taxi on the way there. Mon dieu! Epic wardrobe fail. MATT MAYTUM DEPUTY EDITOR While on an LA studio backlot to interview a couple of major stars for a future issue, I had a surreal stroll through a recreation of London.…

DEAR WINGMAN Is it me, or does the title Hobbs & Shaw sound like a firm of Dickensian solicitors? You know, Uriah Hobbs and Wackford Shaw, offering bespoke legal services such as conveyancing (extremely fast and a little bit furious), personal injury (can be arranged), wills (best be prepared) and ‘family’ disputes (eight settled so far). And… do you think there’s any chance the movie’s villains could be a certain Mr. Pumblechook and Charity Pecksniff? JACK HARGREAVES, ADDINGHAM WINGMAN SAYS… ’Twas only a matter of time before F&F and great English literature came screeching towards each other in the box junction of cinema. If Hobbs & Shaw doesn’t end with Helen Mirren bellowing “Gaaawd bless us, every one”, we’re shredding our Unlimited cards. Wingman’s also banking on future sequels The Old Curiosity Repair Workshop,…

First on my list was Space Jam. I smiled, sang, guffawed and cheered throughout… then was devastated to see my girlfriend’s stone-faced reaction. I’d have preferred her to voice utter hatred for the Tune Squad, but to find her simply indifferent towards a’90s masterpiece (don’t @ me) was very deflating. Have TF staff ever experienced something similar? SAM FRANCIS, GWENT Only every single day, Sam.…

talk of tinseltown

It’s a sunny May day up in Beverly Hills, and – to nobody’s surprise – Quentin Tarantino’s ninth feature film has just been announced as a last-minute contender for the Cannes Film Festival’s prestigious competition. But while it stars two of cinema’s biggest A-listers, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio – whose presence at a top-secret photoshoot has already somehow attracted the paparazzi – Once Upon A Time In Hollywood still has everybody guessing at to what to expect. Today, there are only two things we know for sure. One is that the setting is Los Angeles in 1969, when California was rocked by a spate of murders apparently carried out by followers of guru Charles Manson. The second is that there are three characters at the heart of the film: fading…

I don’t have career ambition,” Richard Madden said earlier this year. “I have life ambition.” That work/play ethos perhaps explains why the 32-year-old Scot has been so judicious in selecting roles since Game Of Thrones launched him as the young heir of House Stark. But after a move to Los Angeles last year – and notable projects such as the BBC’s Bodyguard and Elton John musical Rocketman – the actor is next set to roost in one of Hollywood’s top coops: Marvel. As fans await confirmation that Madden has bagged a role in the studio’s intergalactic The Eternals, we’re left to ponder what could be Madden’s most high-profile gig yet. Inspired by Jack Kirby’s 1976 comic, the film follows the titular cosmic beings – among them Madden’s Ikaris, Angelina Jolie’s Sersi…
