This week: There's no trip to Mars or Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the remake of "Total Recall" has Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and — by popular demand — a new three-breasted prostitute.
Also new this week is Clint Eastwood and Amy Adams in the baseball drama "Trouble With the Curve," the ensemble high school reunion romantic dramedy "10 Years" and the female-driven musical comedy "Pitch Perfect." Get More »
"The Hobbit" hits theaters this Friday and besides all the hobbits, orcs, elves, humans, dragons and Gollums, there's also a group of sturdy folk who form the backbone of the movie: Dwarves.
This isn't the first time dwarves have been portrayed in film, of course — and it's not the first time that little people have been played on screen by regular-sized folks, either. But "The Hobbit," with its band of stout and heroic dwarven heroes, is undoubtedly one of the most prominent portrayals of little people in Hollywood's long and checkered history. Get More »
Jessica Biel's breakout role was on the small screen as wholesome Mary Camden in the hit family drama "7th Heaven." She soon beefed up her career and her body with starring roles in action movies like "Blade: Trinity," "The A-Team" and the "Total Recall" remake.
Jessica isn't just good at beating up the bad guys. She's devoted equal parts of her career to pretty much every kind of movie genre imaginable from horror ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") to period dramas ("The Illusionist," "Hitchcock") to romantic comedies ("Playing For Keeps").
But no matter what role Jessica takes on, she always brings her signature girl next door charm and stunning good looks with her. Putting a Hot People Looking Hot gallery together for Mrs. Justin Timberlake is an honor and a privilege.
It isn't just a time when it is socially acceptable to eat gelatinous discs of cranberry flavoring and call it respecting tradition, Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what is best in life.
We have it good on Planet Fanboy. I mean, we've got the reduced gravity, the constantly clement temperature and the complete ban on that "Tonight We Are Young" song.
Furthermore, there appears to be no end in sight to our stranglehold on big-budget movies. Here, then, a quick list of things we should be thankful for.
"Total Recall" had a forgettable debut at the box office this weekend, as according to Film.com, the Colin Farrell sci-fi remake was soundly thrashed by reigning champion "The Dark Knight Rises."
Taking in an estimated $36.4 million, "The Dark Knight Rises" won the box office crown for the third weekend in a row. "Total Recall," meanwhile, landed in second place with a somewhat soft $26 million opening frame, with fellow newcomer "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days" finishing third with $14.7 million.
For a full rundown of the weekend box office, including figures for returning hits "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and "Ted," head to Film.com.
There is no trip to Mars in the new remake of "Total Recall," but ruthless corporate leader Vilos Cohaagen is back and played by Bryan Cranston. Unlike the original movie, Cohaagen has a complicated, almost father-son relationship with Doug Quaid, played by Colin Farrell.
"I wanted the impression to be that Colin's character was acting out as a teenage son and he just needed tough love," he tells NextMovie. Get More »
I was 15 years old when "Total Recall" came out, the summer where childhood was saying its final goodbyes and independence was readying itself for an introduction. Going to the movies without grown-ups was still something of a novelty, particularly ones with so much gratuitous sex and violence.
Seeing "Total Recall," however, wasn't just a night out that felt more adult, it was a milestone for me in understanding how something could be both thoughtful and crowd-pleasing at the same time. Get More »
After roles in movies like "Blade: Trinity" and the remake of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," it's safe to say Jessica Biel was well prepared for the physical challenges of "Total Recall," in which she plays the rebel agent Melina.
"It is relentless," she says of the pacing of the remake of 1990's "Total Recall." "It's like a bullet train that you jump on and can't get off." Get More »
We don't think the classic line "Get your ass to Mars" is in the remake, but that doesn't mean we're not going to refer to it every chance we get.
Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and other mind-benders walked the red carpet (OR DID THEY?) in celebration of director Len Wiseman's upgraded remix of Paul Verhoeven's 1990 sci-fi cult classic, "Total Recall." We noticed that no one arrived via Johnny Cab, which is ... well, a little disappointing, actually.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere, and get your ass to "Total Recall" (see?) when it hits theaters on Aug. 3.
