Well, we have a humdinger for you. Today sees the release of X-Men: First Class, one of the summer's best blockbusters, and we chatted to Michael Fassbender, aka the new Magneto, about stepping into Ian McKellen's metal-attracting shoes.

We're also giving you an insider's guide to the summer's big festivals, exploring why we all seem to have an odd preoccupation with obesity, highlighting some essential swim shorts for the beach, marvelling at the new Aston Martin, uncovering an unseen Marvin Gaye photo, sorting out your new tablet-based health routine and listening to Danny Wallace's recent mime attempt in France.

Pick a copy up tomorrow to ensure your week gets infinitely better.
