The Fall Guy casts Ryan Gosling as put-upon stuntman Colt Seavers, who reluctantly turns bounty hunter when the leading actor he’s doubling for disappears. Emily Blunt plays Jody Moreno, the director of the film in chaos, and she also happens to be Colt’s ex.

What follows is part meta moviemaking satire, part romantic comedy, part noir thriller and all-out stunt showcase. Inside the new issue of Total Film, Gosling, Blunt, director David Leitch, and producer Kelly McCormick tell all about their action-packed new film which celebrates the unsung heroes of moviemaking.

Elsewhere in the issue, you’ll find a deep-dive making of feature on Kingdom of the Planet of the Apes, the latest instalment in the simian saga, and Alex Garland, Kirsten Dunst and Cailee Spaeny talk about their searing, politically charged thriller, Civil War.

Plus exclusive interviews with John Krasinski, Melanie Lynskey, Anthony Mackie, and comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld, and new looks at Boy Kills World and Hit Man, and all the news, reviews, and regulars you expect.

And as part of our new subscriber offering, if you sign up for a subscription, you’ll get instant access to the new issue in digital form – as well as a massive archive of more than 10 years’ worth of digital issues to explore.
