228-page Yearbook…

We’ve all of 2005’s releases covered in detail – that’s 13 whole issues worth of reviews all packed into one magazine – with every movie scrutinized and rated by our eagled eyed critics. So whether you just want to reflect on a great year in cinema or decide which films you want to see next on DVD, then this is for you…

We’re not just looking back over the year, we’re looking to the future as well, with…

A new genesisSuperman Returns
• We take an exclusive preview of director Bryan Singer’s upcoming Man of Steel movie, due for a 2006 release, and we chart its troubled journey to the big screen.

• We also go back to the beginning of the cinematic Superman legend with an in-depth look at the production of the original films

• An interview with Paul Bernbaum the screenwriter of Truth, Justice and the American Way, a new film that investigates the mysterious death of George Reeves, who played Superman in the classic 50s television series.

And we preview what to look out for in 2006…

PLUS – The Faces of 2005…
We talk to the stars who have shone the brightest in 2005, whether they’re new to the silver screen or making a much anticipated comeback

Bill Murray
• The actor for whom the term ‘laconic’ seems to have been invented tells us why he has never compromised his work and how he manages to juggle fatherhood with his hectic career.

Jessica AlbaJessica Alba
• She's spent more time in the cinema this year than your average usherette. The young star reveals all about her role as a pole dancer in Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City

Mickey Rourke
• He's back and better than ever. In Sin City he's Marv, the psychotic with the heart of gold. We talk to the acting heavyweight about where he has been and where he is going…

Will Ferrell
• Although Bewitched and Kicking and Screaming weren’t big hits, the frenetic funny-man put in a show stealing cameo in The Wedding Crashers and looks set to be a hit in The Producers. He reveals how he managed to transfer his manic persona from the small to big screen.

Natalie Portman
• One of the worlds most desirable and versatile actresses, Portman is only 24 years old but has electrified audiences this year with performances in Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Closer – two films that couldn’t be much more different. The hugely intellectual young actress tells us about her current career, and how she balances her acting roles with her ongoing college studies.

Don Cheadle
• Having starred in two of this year’s best and most moving dramas, Hotel Rwanda and Crash, Don Cheadle is at the very top of his game. The actor who first made his name in fun movies Ocean’s Eleven and Out of Sight tells us why it feels good to do films that carry a message, and being nominated for an Oscar
