It took 22 movies to build up to the end of Avengers: Endgame, and now the Marvel Cinematic Universe finds itself in a brave new world… or worlds, if the Spider-Man: Far From Home trailer is to be believed, for Jakes Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio has apparently arrived on Earth via hole torn in our dimension by the Snap.
So if we weren’t already excited by this sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming (we were), we’re now super-stoked given it’s the first MCU movie out of the gate since Endgame. Expect plenty of light after the gloom of Infinity War and Endgame – Peter Parker and his school pals are on a European vacation, after all – but extreme peril will inevitably arrive in the form of the four Elementals, who exercise control over earth, fire, water and air.
In their latest issue, Total Film has full on-set access to the cast and crew, discovering a fresh landscape populated by new friends and foes.
On shelves from May 31, the new issue also boasts a blockbuster preview (many of which are in our upcoming movies list) featuring such titans as Bond 25, Fast & Furious: Hobbs And Shaw, The Lion King, Star Wars Episode 9: Rise Of Skywalker, Terminator: Dark Fate, Charlie’s Angels, Wonder Woman 1984 and Joker. Plus, a court expert passes judgement on some of the most famous cult movies ever made, and Matt Smith sits down with Total Film for a career-chat.
Keep reading for a breakdown of what to expect in the new issue…

Once Upon a Time In Hollywood
Quentin Tarantino, Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt give us an exclusive on Once Upon a Time In Hollywood, a Pulp Fiction-esque bromance set in 1969 LA.
As he plays cult leader Charles Manson in Charlie Says, Total Film talks to Matt Smith about his career, from Time Lords to Terminators.
With Ari Aster’s creepy follow up to Hereditary, Midsommar (one of our most anticipated upcoming horror movies), dancing into view, Total Film asks cult-expert Rick Alan Ross to look at such movies as The Wicker Man, The Master and Rosemary’s Baby. Are cinema’s most coercive cults realistic?
Designing the DeLorean
Back to the Future’s DeLorean is iconic, but the design failed to take off. Total Film investigates its creator John DeLorean, a visionary who flew too close to the sun…
