Black Adam cover story
(opens in new tab)
A fan of comic books since he was a boy, Dwayne Johnson achieves his lifelong dream of bringing badass antihero Black Adam to the screen, and introduces viewers to the OG super-team Justice Society of America. Expect explosive action in one of the year’s biggest movies – the titular titan has been imprisoned for 5,000 years, and now he’s out and ready to rip the modern world a new one.
The making of Andor
Rogue One was the end of Cassian Andor’s story. Now it’s time for the beginning, the middle and much more with the gritty, twisty Andor on Disney+. The band of rebels behind the new maxi-series reveal why it’s a Star Wars saga like none you’ve ever seen…
The Woman King interviews
Having established her action credentials on The Old Guard, Gina Prince-Bythewood has rounded up Viola Davis, Lashana Lynch and many more outstanding actors to tell the tale of the mighty 19th-century Africa army, the Agojie. Director and cast take us inside the good fight.

The history of Harley Quinn
As the mischief maker turns 30, Total Film looks at all things Harley Quinn, from her animated origin story to the comics to Margot Robbie in Birds of Prey… and Lady Gaga in the pipelined Joker 2. Ms. Quinn’s creators help unfold the full story.
Kaitlyn Dever interview
After turning heads in ace high-school comedy Booksmart, Kaityln Dever showed she had serious dramatic chops when she migrated to TV for Unbelievable and Dopesick. Now she’s back showing her lighter side in Ticket To Paradise (in cinemas September 16), a romantic comedy co-starring Julia Roberts and George Clooney, and Rosaline (on Disney+, October 14), a revisionist spin on the Romeo & Juliet story.
The Brit powerhouse is garnering Oscar buzz for her title role in Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris. What better time for her to talk Total Film (opens in new tab) through the highlights of her work in film and TV, including Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, stunning sitcom Mum and her eight-film collaboration with the great Mike Leigh.
The making of Moonage Daydream
Assembled from five million pieces of archival material, Brett Morgen’s “experiential” David Bowie documentary took five years to make and is worth every second spent on it. Moonage Daydream takes viewers on an odyssey like no other, and ch-ch-changes music docs forever.
Michael Mann career interview
The master moviemaker has written a novel. It is Heat 2, a tough, terse, thrilling prequel/sequel to his 1995 cops-and-robbers masterpiece starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino. Will he make Heat 2 into an epic film? Mann talks about this and a 40-year career that includes Manhunter, The Last Of The Mohicans, The Insider, Miami Vice and Collateral.
