There are reboots and there are remakes. The difference is subtle – and probably entirely semantic – but key. Reboots give beloved franchises new energy. (Think: Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy.) Remakes are ill-conceived, often cynical attempts to cash in on a film that worked before.
Total Recall is a remake.
Instead of a fun, wild trip to Mars, like in the 1990 original starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, this Recall – starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel – is set right here on Earth – though a dystopian version that's left much of the planet uninhabitable after world wars. What remains are the upper class United Federation of Britain and the depressing, rainy, blue-collar Colony (a.k.a. Australia).

He arrived as a kindergartner in 1999. And on Friday, Patrick Schwarzenegger graduated from the Brentwood School in Los Angeles – joyful, a little bit flabbergasted, and ready for the next phase of his life.
"Just graduated high school!! So crazy. Can't believe this is all over," Schwarzenegger, 18, the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver, wrote on Twitter.
He also posted a photo of himself posing with his mom. "Been a crazy ride but I'm finally graduated," he wrote.

Looks like Patrick Schwarzenegger is a mini Terminator.
A day after suffering cuts and bruises in a skiing accident, Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's 18-year-old son returned to the slopes in in Sun Valley, Idaho, on Sunday, apparently no worse for wear.
"Appreciate all the messages, love all you," he wrote on Twitter. "I'm actually feeling really good today, and I even went skiing again today. Thanks again!!"

Patrick Schwarzenegger on WhoSay
Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's 18-year-old son Patrick went to the hospital on a stretcher Saturday after a skiing accident in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Patrick was recovering and feeling well enough to postdetails on Twitter and photos on WhoSay and Instagram, including a picture of a nasty cut to his backside.
"Little ski accident today," Patrick told his Twitter followers. "Some bruises and stiches down back and but (sic). Thanks to sun valley doctors for everything."
The accident came about seven months after his little brother Christopher, 14, was hospitalized after hurting himself while boogie-boarding.

He'll be back – in surgery.
Possibly feeling the painful effects of an action-movie comeback at age 64, Arnold Schwarzenegger posted a WhoSay photo of himself shirtless in the hospital nursing a bum shoulder.
But in a "huh?" moment, the photo shows his costar Sylvester Stallone, 65, also shirtless, plugged into an IV in the next bed.

Katherine Schwarzenegger has arrived: She made her TV debut Friday as a special correspondent for Entertainment Tonight.
"I was terrified," Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger's eldest daughter, a USC senior, told PEOPLE at the It's Our Turn Young Women's Conference the day after her on-camera interview with Reese Witherspoon, Chris Pine and Tom Hardy for their upcoming movie This Means War. "Before I went in there, I was like, 'I'm going to throw up. I'm going to have projectile vomit in their faces, I'm so nervous!' "
Adding to her overall sense of nerves? "Chris Pine is gorgeous," she says. "I think it would have been easier if Chris Pine had not been there."

While Internet reports that Maria Shriver is wearing a suspicious ring on that finger fueled rumors of a possible reconciliation with husband Arnold Schwarzenegger, PEOPLE has learned there's a different explanation.
The bling seen on Shriver's left hand is actually her late mother's engagement ring. Shriver, who was extremely close her mom, has been wearing the ring since Eunice Shriver's death in August 2009.
As for rumors that Shriver is having second thoughts about divorcing Schwarzenegger, a source close to the couple denies it.
"The reports of a reconciliation are not true," says the source.

Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger have come together for another major occasion since the journalist filed for divorce from her husband in July.
A source close to the family tells PEOPLE the two spent Christmas together with their children at their home in Brentwood, Calif., and they "had a really nice time" over the holiday.
According to the source, they also attended the Los Angeles Lakers' season opener game at the Staples Center in the afternoon.
Spending time together, however, isn't unprecedented for the two.
Since their split, Shriver, 56, was by her ex's side on his 64th birthday in July.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to tell his story.
The actor and former California governor is writing an autobiography that will touch upon his recent breakup with Maria Shriver while also covering his childhood in Austria and his careers as a bodybuilder, action star and politician.

Schwarzenegger, 64, will work on the book, tentatively titled Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, in between shooting scenes for his next film The Expendables 2, with Sylvester Stallone.
