Behind the Scenes On ‘Total Recall’ With Biel, Farrell and, Beckinsale

- 04-03-12Film Posted by Jeremy R! Hudson

I’m going to guess that this either for an upcoming broadcast or a recent one of Entertainment Tonight, as I would rather pass something the size of a golf ball through a nostril than watch that show, we’ll just leave it at that.

ET put up a nice little behind the scenes featurette for the forthcoming Total Recall reboot. By the sounds of it the movie (you can watch the stunningly awesome and far better than expected trailer here) will play a little closer to the source material, Philip K. Dick‘s “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale”, than the 80’s action flick with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Hit the jump to watch interviews with with Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel. Sadly, it doesn’t sound like Biel is in the role of Kuato. Damn it, she would have been perfect!

No More Teasers – The Total: ‘Total Recall’ Trailer

- 04-01-12Film Posted by Mark Poynter

No more teasers for Total Recall, we’ve got a full trailer from Columbia Pictures for director Len Wiseman’s Total Recall reboot. The movie hits theater screens on August 3rd, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy.

 

Total Recall is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

Here’s another one of those damn trailer teasers. This time next year we’ll probably be getting still movie images released once a day that when put together and flipped . . . show us the trailer. Anything those marketing geniuses can do to keep the news cycle lukewarm about a film it seems.

The full trailer will be revealed this Sunday – here’s the details according to Columbia Pictures:

Moviegoers will begin their Recall experience on Sunday, April 1, as Columbia Pictures debuts the trailer for the highly anticipated action thriller Total Recall during the NBA game between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat broadcast nationally on ABC, it was announced today by Marc Weinstock, president of Worldwide Marketing for Sony Pictures.

New Taiwanese ‘Total Recall’ Footage

- 03-15-12Film Posted by Mark Poynter

 

There hasn’t been much news lately from the Total Recall production. Len Wiseman and Columbia Pictures have been keeping pretty much to themselves any goodies from their Total Recall remake.

We’ve only seen a few set stills from the movie which opens August 3, 2012. A Taiwanese 30-second promo for the film has hit the net. the Movie stars Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale, check out the Kate pics below.

Synopsis, which might be a spoiler if you never saw the first film:

The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

All this secrecy might not be a bad idea, we already know the plot and story. Maybe keeping everything else under cover will get people thinking that the synopsis given is just a smoke screen. They can’t leave out those iconic images that made Total Recall a hit.

One More ‘Underworld’ Movie? Beckinsale Won’t Rule It Out

- 01-17-12Film Posted by Chris D.

Even though Underworld: Awakening isn’t out in theaters until this weekend, Kate Beckinsale is already talking about the possibility of another Underworld flick.

In a recent interview with Collider, Beckinsale tells us why she should never become a psychic:

I’m the worst person to ask about this. I always said there was not going to be a fourth one, so you can’t trust what I say at all,” she said. “Playing the same character over and over again does seem a bit odd, but I am very fond of the character and other people are pretty fond of her, too. So, who knows?

To be honest, I hope they leave the franchise where it is because enough is enough.  It’s getting old and overdone now and it’s time to just move the fuck on.

Sony Releases Synopsis for Total Recall Reboot

- 01-16-12Film Posted by Mark Poynter

Sony Pictures has released the synopsis for director Len Wiseman’s reboot of Total Recall, which hits theaters on August 3. Kurt Wimmer and Mark Bomback adapted the action thriller starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy. Now what I want to know is why bother? Is there anyone who doesn’t know what is going to happen in this movie? Let’s do a checklist:

Hot wife fight?     Check!

Three Boobed Woman?     BETTER BE!

Mind Trip /  Mind Wipe?     Check!

My biggest fear about this is that Wiseman might try to slip in some big Gotcha moment at the end to make it all a dream.

The synopsis is as follows:

“Total Recall” is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

We’re waiting along with the rest of you for the first trailer. What are your thoughts on the reboot?

New Footage from Underworld Awakenings Online

- 12-22-11Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

It’s less than a month until the release of the next Underworld entry, Awakening (so much for Christmas movies), and now we have another new sneak preview of the film, which offers nothing actually new except lots of action, including shots of Kate Beckinsale kicking ass in skin-tight leather.

The plot will follow (“The Original”) Death Dealer Selene as she makes her way through a world where humans are warring with both vampires and Lycans. Sadly, the ratings tag at the end seems to indicate that Beckinsale won’t be shedding her tight black leather in this film, but at least the outift leaves little to the imagination.

Underworld: Awakening will be released Jenuary 20th, 2012.

First Trailer for ‘Underworld: Awakening’

- 11-02-11Film Posted by NickBungay

It’ll be exactly six years to the day since the first Underworld movie, but on January 20th, 2012 Selene and those lovely butt huggers are back.

Sony’s Screen Gems has released the new trailer for Underworld Awakening, directed by team Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein. The sequel returns Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two Underworld films, to her lead role as the vampire warrior Selene, who escapes 12 years of imprisonment to find herself in a world where humans have not only discovered the existence of both Vampire and Lycan clans, but have started conducting an all-out war to eradicate both immortal species. Sparkling vampires this definitely is not, but shirtless werewolves are still there ladies.

Underworld: Awakening stars Kate Beckinsale, Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy, Theo James, India Eisley and Charles Dance.

‘Underworld’ Anime Preview Appears Online

- 10-18-11Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

If this clip from the three-part Underworld anime-ted series proves one thing, it’s that the appeal of this franchise is almost entirely dependent on how Kate Beckinsale looks in skin-tight leather.

The Underworld trilogy* box set is coming out on Blu-ray this holiday season, and included in them is this anime-inspired miniseries called Endless War. What it’s about, no one seems to be sure.

*Of course, we use the term “trilogy” loosely because the fourth film comes out in January.

IGN says the series, “Complements the live-action iteration by incorporating the themes of the story and spotlights the characters that we know and love, making it a must-see for fans of the films.” And yes, that “synopsis” doesn’t say much.

Underworld Trilogy: The Essential Collection will be released on Blu-ray on December 13th.

‘Danger Girl’ Moves Forward With Beckinsale, Jovovich and Vergara

- 08-23-11Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Hm. Why on Earth would anyone think making a film based on this material is an appealing idea?

A production company called BenderSpink, which helped bring The Ring and The Ruins to screens everywhere, is shopping the movie rights to the 90s Wildstorm comic Danger Girl right this very minute, and its got three very hot ladies attached already: Underworld‘s Kate Beckinsale, Resident Evil‘s Milla Jovovich and Modern Family‘s Sofia Vergara. All this according to Latino Review.

So what’s Danger Girl about? Who cares? It was drawn by J. Scott Campbell and it was about hot women wearing skimpy things and fighting nazi robots and stuff. It was Indiana Jones meets James Bond, and did we mention it was about hot girls drawn by J. Scott Campbell.

Well for the completists among you, here’s the plot synopsis from Latino Review: “A beautiful adventuress joins forces with an all-female spy agency as they race around the world to recover a trio of powerful relics.”

So it’s Tomb Raider times three. Can any studio in their right mind refuse the smouldering combo of Beckinsale, Jovovich and Vergara? They’d have to be crazy to try.
