The latest issue of Film Stories is incoming – and here’s what’s inside issue 26 of our movie magazine.

Issue 26 of Film Stories magazine is complete (no small feat that, for an independent film magazine), and it’s available to order now. It’s jam-packed with, as you’d expect, lots and lots of movie stuff, and we lead once again on a hugely exciting British film.

It’s going into a few WHSmiths stores around the UK, but primarily is available via mail order. It’s entirely independent, 100% about film, and it’s available to order now!

Here’s the front cover, before we tell you a bit more…

* Censor: we dig into the must-see British horror movie of the summer, as we found out all about Censor in our big lead feature

* The director’s cuts that we’ll never get to see: the stories of the movies with alternate cuts destined not to see the light of day

* Drop Dead Fred at 30: with the help of its director – Ate de Jong – we revisit the Rik Mayall/Phoebe Cates-headlined 1991 comedy, and its serious undercurrent.

* Anyone for tennis? A look at how the sport is represented on the big screen, just in time for Wimbledon. It’s almost as if we knew…

* Romesh Ranganathan on jump scares, and heading back to the cinema

* Isabela Merced: she’s one of the best young actors working in Hollywood, and she’s been chatting to us for our new issue.

* Reginald Hudlin: in an exclusive interview, a look through his directorial work, right through to his new film

* The Father & dementia: a personal response to a challenging movie

* The overlooked Cinderella movie: who remembers The Slipper & The Rose?

* Miles and miles and miles of costumes: we find out all about the legendary costume firm Angels

* Neil Burger exclusively chats to us about his new movie, the sci-fi feature Voyagers

Plus! Female Film Club, Sunflowers, the videogames heading to the movies, a new short film starring Himesh Patel, a whole host of reviews and much much more!
