"She is crazed and slightly unstable, so that's always fun for an actor to play," she says of her character, Lori Quaid, who may or may not be really married to Colin Farrell's character. Get More »
22 years ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger took Mars by storm and made human shields seem practical, but now Colin Farrell thinks he can one-up The Governator with a "Total Recall" for today's demanding special effects hound.
Director Len Wiseman of "Underworld" fame lends his eye for sci-fi mayhem — as well as wife Kate Beckinsale — for this new iteration of Douglas Quaid (Farrell) and his quest to figure out whether he's a spy with a memory problem or just a guy on a bad (implanted) acid trip. Jessica Biel and "Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston co-star. Get More »
"Total Recall" is Colin Farrell's second movie — the first being "Minority Report" — that is based on the writings of sci-fi author Philip K. Dick.
"The hover cars and the way they travel up buildings is very similar [to 'Minority Report']," says Farrell. "I feel bits of Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis' and 'Blade Runner.'"
There's also some dizzying action in this remake of the 1990 "Total Recall," and Farrell put his privates on the line during an anti-gravity scene that required him to be suspended on wires.
"My balls were getting pinched, I was getting welts on my ass and the blood was rushing to my face because I was hanging upside down for 20 minutes," says Farrell. "You're supposed to look like you have some semblance of control and calm, but you're struggling."
See for yourself if Farrell hides the hurt when "Total Recall" opens in theaters on August 3.

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.

Most of the time, when someone only has a few minutes of screen time in a film, they don't get a whole lot of attention. You know, cameos, walk-ons and extras don't often take the spotlight away from superstars. But when you have three breasts, well, that tends to change more things than just your bra size.
Case in point: According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Total Recall" actress Kaitlyn Leeb has become a viral sensation thanks to her recent appearance at Comic-Con in character — and now she wants the world to know that her character's third breast is just part of the costume.

There are some questions that humans have been asking for thousands of years: What is the meaning of life? What happens when you die? What is art?
We added one more burning question to that list at Comic-Con 2012: Is there a three-breasted hooker in "Total Recall"? It's a question that could have baffled us for years to come, but luckily the cast of "Total Recall" gave us the answer so we don't have to wait until the movie comes out on August 3.
Watch the video above for some shocking revelations, shocked reactions to this question and, oh yeah, some (not so shockingly) hot stars.

If there was one victor among the movies paneling at San Diego Comic-Con this year, it'd have to be … Marvel. Or was it "Man of Steel"? Or maybe "The Hobbit"?
Another Con's in the can, and we've emerged with new intel on a handful of high-profile mega-movies. There weren't necessarily any groundbreaking casting announcements this year, but first footage from movies like the new Superman flick, "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Pacific Rim" and "Elysium" had fans and bloggers buzzing big time.
Check out the biggest movie scoops below. What we should add, #16: Getting in line at 7 a.m. does not guarantee you entry into the con's marquee venue (Hall H). Not even for a 6 p.m. panel. And yep, we learned that the hard way. – By Bryan Enk and Kevin Polowy
If there's one thing we know about Jason Bourne and his fellow secret agents it's that they are survivors. Whatever it takes to survive, they'll do. Kill a guy with a pen? Travel from country to country under a series of assumed identities? Drive a car backwards down the interstate? Done, done and done.
So it should be no surprise that according to Deadline, Universal has just announced that they are moving "The Bourne Legacy" from August 3 to August 10 in order to avoid being steamrolled by "The Dark Knight Rises" and "Total Recall."
Hey, the film may not have Matt Damon, but it clearly still has those survival instincts going full bore. Get More »
Summer movies season is all about the blockbusters -- action movies with fist fights and guns blaring. Ch-ching!
But blockbusters aren't the only kind of movies at the multiplex this summer; they share space alongside quieter, more critically acclaimed fare. And let's face it, inside every loud, attention-grabbing, big-budget action movie, there's also a sensitive indie just wanting to get out. Right?
That's how we like to think of it, anyway. With our friend Old Red Jalopy, we've put a spin on 10 summer blockbusters to picture them as smaller, less explosion-heavy films instead. After all, it's not such a huge leap to see "The Avengers" as a moodily dysfunctional family, or Sylvester Stallone as an aging soldier contemplating the limits of his own mortality (with or without guns).
