The Jackal’s new issue is out now

Here's what's new in our February/March 2019 edition (out now) fronted by the Brit smashing Hollywood's status quo, Chiwetel Ejiofor

The Jackal‘s new February/March 2019 issue drops at 25 tube and train stations across the capital at 5pm this Wednesday (20 February), packed with the sort of can’t-put-it-down content that will make you look forward to your commute home. Here’s a few highlights…

Chiwetel Ejiofor leads the issue as our latest cover star. In our interview, he speaks to our new Editor Nick Carvell about taking on the roles of actor, screenwriter and director on his latest film project The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind (no pressure), the dangerous cult of individuality that’s so prevalent in society right now, and why it’s still so important to be talking about race in the movie business. Is this Londoner the man to smash the Hollywood status quo? We think so.

Another outspoken actor joining our new issue is Jack Lowden, who you might have most recently seen opposite Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in Mary Queen of Scots. We speak to him about his latest films Fighting with My Family and Fonzo, as well as his views on the idea of a second Scottish Independence referendum – all while he demonstrates the coolest colour-burst essentials for your wardrobe this season.

We also have a raft of new opinion writers on board, bringing you columns on fatherhood, sport, and technology, plus plenty of ways to hack your work/life balance for the better and how to get your career up to speed with this year’s big business buzzword: flow.

Beyond the UK, we bring you a report by Johanna Derry on why the capital of Ghana, Accra, is the place you need to go for a city break in Africa right now, as well as food writer Mina Holland on the coolest places to experience West African food in the capital, from street stalls to Michelin-starred restaurants.

And we introduce our new series on how to do London’s neighbourhoods like a local, kicking off with architect, interior designer and king of the New Bloomsbury Set, Ben Pentreath, on the best things to do, places to eat and what to see around Lamb’s Conduit Street.

PLUS the style essentials to help you survive storm season, historian Dan Cruickshank on turning points in British history (and what might have happened if things had gone differently), our first creative writing feature where we’ve asked award-winning author Tom Ward to tackle the topic of masculinity in 2019, a look at why Arthur Miller is trending in the theatre world this season, how to eat your way to better skin in our new grooming section, and much, much more.

We hope you enjoy our new vibe.
