When you hear the name "The Europa Report," chances are you aren't exactly filled with excitement; after all, it basically sounds like some kind of term paper about the fiscal crisis facing the European Union or something. Booooorrrrring, right?
Well, the first teaser trailer for "The Europa Report" has just hit the internet and all we can say is that despite the title, it looks pretty damn far from boring.
Just ask "District 9" star Sharlto Copley. Get More »
We never doubted for a second that director Len Wiseman wouldn't embrace the opportunity to bring back one of the most iconic throw-away characters in the history of sci-fi cinema.
Well, maybe we did a couple of weeks ago at the San Diego Comic-Con, and our lingering doubt prompted NextMovie's own Kevin Polowy to ask pretty much everyone who came down the press line (whether they were involved in "Total Recall" or not): Is there indeed going to be a three-breasted hooker in the rebooted adventures of Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell)?
The answers ranged from sly (Bryan Cranston) to exasperatingly confrontational (Jessica Biel), but it was Kate Beckinsale who finally assured us that, yes, despite the PG-13 rating, we will be seeing the return of the most important character in all of "Total Recall" lore. And her triple-breasts are apparently worthy of envy.
Watch Kevin's journey to the truth in the video above. "Total Recall" opens Aug. 3.

Ever since Disney announced "Maleficent," the live action adaptation of their classic animated hit "Sleeping Beauty," fans have been wondering who would step into the role of Prince Charming (aka Prince Phillip for those nitpickers out there).
After all, with Angelina Jolie on board as the iconic evil sorceress, the film would need someone equally awesome to battle her dragon form. Michael Fassbender, maybe? Matt Damon? Perhaps even Brad Pitt himself?
Finally, someone actually wants to play with "Oldboy."
After an exhaustive (and exhausting) search, director Spike Lee has finally convinced an actor to commit to the villain role in "Oldboy": Sharlto Copley, according to Deadline. The "District 9" star had been rumored to be circling the part and it looks like it's a done deal.
Spike Lee has had a hell of a time finding someone to play the man who makes Josh Brolin's life a living hell. Previous candidates for the role included Clive Owen (who played the villain in Lee's "Inside Man"), Colin Firth and Christian Bale … though we have to say that Copley, who recently played Captain H.M. 'Howling Mad' Murdock in the big-screen take on "The A-Team," is our favorite choice so far. Score! Get More »
"This year, without question, my favorite movie was 'Inception.'
"Why? I love it when someone is able to make an original film that hits huge numbers of people. That really gets to me. 'District 9' did it in a way, and 'Inception' did it in a massive way. I really enjoyed it."
Sharlto Copley is a South African actor best known for his role as Wikus van de Merwe—the man tasked with relocating angry alien prawns in the Oscar-nominated sci-fi sensation "District 9." Recently, Copley jumped at the chance to play loony helicopter pilot H.M. Murdock in the big-screen adaptation of "The A-Team," which comes out on DVD and Blu-ray this week.
We sat down with Copley and chatted to the friendly, fast-talking actor about growing up with "The A-Team" TV show, why he almost made original Murdock actor Dwight Schultz cry, and what the least manly thing this star of a red-meat action film has done lately. Get More »
Let's talk for a moment about the concept of a "sophomore slump"… you know, when a director makes a brilliant debut feature, earns boatloads of cash, receives gobs of praise, then with all the anticipation in the world he drops his second movie and it stinks up the joint?
It happened to Orson Welles ("Magnificent Ambersons"), Steven Soderbergh ("Kafka"), Kevin Smith ("Mallrats"), Kevin Costner ("The Postman"), Michael Mann ("The Keep"), John Singleton ("Poetic Justice"), Bryan Singer ("Apt Pupil")… so if it can happen to the best of 'em, what's to stop it from happening to Neill Blomkamp?
