A wholesale redesign includes a new 16-page pull-out section, called Total Access, and a new logo.
The New Films review section has been moved to the front of the magazine 'to reflect its importance'.
Spin, the DVD reviews segment, has been given its own dedicated section in the back - redesigned and split between new releases and classic re-releases. A refocused news section, called Rough Cut, has also been introduced.
'The revamp gives a lot more scope to PR agencies to detail their products,' said editor Matt Mueller. 'The 16-page pull-out will carry big pictures of new film releases and a new news section will offer space for mini interviews.
'The redesign strengthens the magazine's position and presents the reader with a fresh and exciting insight into the world of film,' he added.
Total Film's ABC figure for January to June 2003 saw it register its 12th successive circulation rise, with an average monthly circulation of 90,454.
