The Rebel Issue
Issue 208 of Total Film magazine sticks it to ‘the man’ and celebrates cinema's most iconic rebels.
Leading the charge is Johnny Depp’s latest gamble, The Lone Ranger , which could well be an edgier shake-up of the Pirates Of The Caribbean formula.
Plus, we go on set with the most anarchic superheroes out there for Kick-Ass 2 .
On top of that, there are exclusive production diaries from trailblazer directors Edgar Wright and Guillermo del Toro, and we’ve got the full story on the strangest film you’ll ever see - Ben Wheatley’s A Field In England .
Also, you may have already heard that Total Film magazine is now available on your iPad in our award-winning interactive edition and it now costs just £1.99 per issue, or £12.99 for a whole year ($2.99 per issue or $17.99 yearly for the US and Canada, €2.39 per issue or €14.49 yearly for the Europe)!
