Previously only available on iPhone, Future PLC yesterday announced the launch of Total Film on iPad. Designed to provide users with the latest movie news, reviews of the hottest new movie releases, interviews with the biggest names on the planet, on-set reports, and more – it’s hardly surprising Total Film is largely considered by its creators as “the world’s best movie magazine.”

The Total Film Interactive Edition was created using Future’s own proprietary software, FutureFolio. FutureFolio is an Apple-approved wrapper for digital products on the Newsstand, which opens up new opportunities and channels for the digital publication market.
