Features[edit] Each month, Total Film
Film
provides a range of features, from spotlight interviews with actors and directors, to making of and on-set pieces for new and future releases. Each issue always includes the 'Total Film
Film
Interview', which is a six-page in-depth chat with an actor or director, along with a critique of their body of work. Key sections within the magazine[edit]

Dialogue The section where readers can interact with the magazine, this contains readers' letters, emails and feedback from the magazine's social media followers (TF's Forum, Facebook and Twitter). Each month, TF offers a DVD for each published missive. A regular feature within Dialogue includes Office Spaced where snippets of conversation from the TF office are shared.

Buzz The Total Film
Film
news section, providing details on upcoming films, includes first look photos, on-set visits and exclusive "sneak peeks". Regular features include: 'Ever Met Tom Cruise?' where a behind the scenes person is interviewed, e.g. a stuntwoman or a casting director; 'You Talkin' To Me?' where stars answer questions posed as famous film quotes and Red Light, Green Light for what is hot and what is not in movieland. Also included is the '60 Second Screenplay', which is a cut-down, humorous version of a movie script.

Agenda Billed as being 'for the sharper movie fan', this section often previews more eclectic and less mainstream releases and players. Richard Ayoade

Screen The main cinema reviews section, with every new movie for that month reviewed and rated. Major releases receive comprehensive coverage, with a star rating out of five, the magazine's own 'Predicted Interest Curve'—a graph that demonstrates which moments of a film are likely to hold the viewer's attention and a short 'Verdict'. Also briefly listed are similar recommendations under 'See this if you liked...' Smaller films receive a concise review and rating. The end of the section is devoted to the current U.S. and UK box office charts, an irreverent flashback to an old issue and summaries of any films that were not shown to journalists in time for that month's print deadline.

Lounge TF's home entertainment guide, including reviews of the latest DVDs and Blu-rays, as well as some games, soundtracks and books. Regular features include 'Is It Just Me?', where a TF writer gets to rant about a particular (often controversial) film-related point of view, with readers then given the right to reply via the TF Forum or website; 'Instant Expert' which gives a rundown of the key facts you need to know about an actor, director or movie genre; and 'TF Loves' which picks out a certain scene or character rated by the magazine.

Foreign editions[edit] Licensed local editions of Total Film
