Jessica Biel's simple New Year celebrations

31 December 2012 10:01 AM, PST | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Jessica Biel likes to keep her New Year's Eve simple. The 'Total Recall' actress likes things to be as traditional as possible when it comes to celebrating the turning of the year, and always likes to share it with a few close friends. She said: 'I'm not much of a big New Year's planner. It's usually a get together in someplace chilly with a fire burning and snow coming down, and just enjoying a cocktail.' The festive period is a special time for Jessica, 30, as it was at this time last year now-husband Justin Timberlake proposed to her during a break in Jackson, Wyoming. They subsequently married in Naples, Italy in October. She added: 'I will »

Colin Farrell And Noomi Rapace Get Their Hands Dirty In Dead Man Down Trailer

31 December 2012 7:50 AM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

As one of the universally agreed-upon bright spots of Ridley Scott's Prometheus, and of course as the unforgettable Lisbeth Salander in the original Swedish Girl with the Dragon Tattoo films, Noomi Rapace is very much on her way up, and could easily be a good role away from being the new Marion Cotillard-- a foreign actress to become an A-lister in the States. She may be hoping the trick to getting there is a reunion with her Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev, for their first English-language collaboration Dead Man Down. Get your first look at it in the new trailer below. Aside from the undeniably up-and-coming Rapace, the rest of the cast seems to be people who could use a break-- Colin Farrell primary among them, after last summer's disappointing Total Recall remake. Terrence Howard has also been on a bad run since his Oscar-nominated work in »

Explosive Vengeance-Filled Trailer For Farrell & Rapace’s ‘Dead Man Down’!

30 December 2012 10:13 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

He may have appeared in one of the summers most disappointing blockbusters – the dire Total Recall remake – but Colin Farrell left 2012 with the terrific ensemble Seven Psychopaths, to remind us the year hasn’t been all bad for the Irish actor. Next up for the Dubliner will be Dead Man Down, a revenge-driven thriller that reunites the original The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo director Niels Arden Oplev, with his stunning lead Noomi Rapace.

The film sees Farrell as Victor, the right hand man to a New York crime lord who is secretly planning retribution against his boss (Terrence Howard) for the death of his wife and daughter. However, a mysterious victim and neighbour (Rapace) has a blackmail plot of her own as she seeks revenge against Victor’s gangster boss.

Here we have the impressive first ‘noir’-ish trailer for the film co-starring Dominic CooperIsabelle HuppertArmand Assante, »

Len Wiseman reveals 'The Mummy' reboot is "shockingly different"

27 December 2012 1:56 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Len Wiseman has revealed that his intended reboot of The Mummy will be "shockingly different" to previous films in the series. Speaking to Digital Spy, the director of the recent Total Recall remake clarified: "I'm involved right now and the script is in the process of being written so I'm excited to see what it turns into… it is set in the modern day [and] it's an entirely different kind of Mummy. "It doesn't tie in in any way to the Brendan Fraser movies - it's not a remake at all," he added, drawing a line under the financially successful trilogy which started with 1999's The Mummy and concluded with the critically lampooned The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor in 2008. Wiseman also confirmed that the writing duo behind Jj Abrams's Star (more) »

New DVD Blu-Ray: 'Killer Joe,' 'Premium Rush'

18 December 2012 1:35 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's New Release Pick of the Week "Killer Joe" What's It About? A trailer park father-son combo (Thomas Haden Church, Emile Hirsch) need to come up with thousands to pay off drug dealers; their only option is to kill off their wicked step-mother (Gina Gershon) and collect the insurance. To pull off the dirty deed, they hire "Killer" Joe (Matthew McConaughey) a corrupt cop who moonlights as a hitman. See It Because: "Joe" is a showcase of skills you didn't know McConaughey had in him. The movie walks a fine line between brutally grim and darkly funny, and it earns its Nc-17 rating. But "Joe's" redneck noirish flavor is a late career high mark for director William Friedkin ("The Exorcist," "The French Connection"), who has always been able to deliver genuine heart-stopping drama. New on Blu-ray & DVD "Arbitrage" What's It About? Richard Gere plays billionaire hedge-fund manager Robert Miller, who »

'Total Recall', 'Resident Evil', 'Premium Rush' and More on DVD and Blu-ray This Week

18 December 2012 7:00 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Total Recall Apparently the extended cut of Total Recall found on the Blu-ray is 12 minutes longer than what was shown in theaters. Thinking back on my theater experience I don't remember a problem with narrative gaps as much as I had a problem with the film's general ability to steal every single second of said narrative from previous films. I wonder of director Len Wiseman found a way to work even more scenes stolen from other sci-fi films into the running time. I guess I'll never know. You can, however, revisit my "D-" theatrical review right here.

 

Arbitrage This was a pretty good film. I think it's being propped up a bit higher than it necessarily deserves, but it's solid, and worth a rental. You can read my theatrical review here.

 

Premium Rush Now this may be the one film on the board to seriously consider buying, not because it's necessarily good, »

Six of the Best (and Worst) Pieces of Movie Technology

18 December 2012 5:00 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

In creating fantasy worlds on the big screen directors have often sought out strange and bizarre inventions to tell their stories. Technology has played a vital role in communicating the future visions of many a filmmaker and thousands of invented oddities are piled high in the collective movie storeroom. To mark the release of Total Recall on Blu-ray and DVD on the 26th of December we wanted to plunder that storeroom.

Movie tech can be something as merry as a flying car or it could be a mind-altering machine such as Colin Farrell has himself plugged into in the image above or, taken a little further, a mind-wiping device granting their user that elusive spotless mind.

While you can’t buy any of these particular gadgets this Christmas we thought it harmless to list six of the best (and worst) pieces of movie tech filmmakers have promised us over the years. »

17 December 2012 7:57 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Blu-ray Review

Total Recall

Directed by: Len Wiseman

Cast: Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston

Running Time: 2 hrs 10 mins (extended), 1 hr 58 mins (theatrical)

Rating: Unrated (extended), PG-13 (theatrical)

Due Out: December 18, 2012

Plot: A perfectly average factory worker (Farrell) goes to Rekall to spice up his life, but ends up on the run after discovering he may be a spy.

Who’S It For? So long as you aren’t going in expecting a whole lot more than some flashy visuals and entertaining action sequences you should come away relatively happy. Also, anyone of age who wants to play a lens flare drinking game, don’t. You will die.

Movie:

Even if, like me, you’ve never seen the Verhoeven/Schwarzenegger version of Total Recall, there’s a certain level of familiarity with this new take. I was often reminded of past films that take place in similar worlds, »

Len Wiseman Describes “Mummy” Reboot

14 December 2012 12:21 PM, PST | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

With Len Wiseman’s remake of Total Recall arriving on DVD and Blu-Ray on December 18th, he’s preparing for another one: The Mummy. One of our very favorite classic monsters, Universal is rebooting one of the all-time greats in the Mummy, and Len Wiseman has shined some light on the “epic” new interpretation, which will be completely different and separate from the Brendan Fraser movies.

After Total Recall’s negative reception, Wiseman was cautious to do another remake, but he doesn’t term The Mummy as a remake at all. His thoughts and reasoning: “There was skepticism. The difference between the two, if The Mummy is to be the next movie for me, is that The Mummy is a completely different film. It is a modern day take. It doesn’t have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser films, and it is not a remake of any kind. »

What Can We Expect from The Mummy Reboot?

14 December 2012 10:17 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Back in September, it was revealed that Len Wiseman (Total Recall remake, Underworld) would be directing a reboot of The Mummy for Universal. Jon Spaihts has been working on the script, which was said to be a modern take on the classic story, and we have more details on what to expect from a recent interview with Wiseman:

“There was skepticism. The difference between the two, if The Mummy is to be the next movie for me, is that The Mummy is a completely different film. It is a modern day take. It doesn’t have anything to do with the Brendan Fraser films, and it is not a remake of any kind… It’s horror. Its epic. It’s more of a modern day version of what would happen if we came across a mummy in our world today. It is pretty fascinating.”

Len Wiseman Describes ‘The Mummy’ Reboot as ‘Epic’ Modern-Day Horror Film

14 December 2012 9:52 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Writer-producer duo Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Star Trek Into Darkness) are currently backing a pair of supernatural horror reboots, The Mummy and Van Helsing. The latter franchise originated as a Stephen Sommers film – based, of course, on the famous Dracula vampire hunter – but the former existed long before Sommers put his own spin on the story, with a 1999 blockbuster starring Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz.

Director Len Wiseman (Underworld, Live Free or Die Hard, Total Recall) recently spilled some new details about the Mummy reboot, revealing the setting and tone for the pitch from Jon Spaihts (who penned the initial Prometheus script draft titled Alien: Engineers).

Here’s what Wiseman told Movieweb about remaking The Mummy (again):

“There was skepticism. The difference between ['Mummy' and 'Total Recall'], ...
