Total Recall's Cardinal Sin? It's Not Much Fun: Review

Total Recall's Cardinal Sin? It's Not Much Fun: Review

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).

Kate Beckinsale's Pet Detective Fail

Originally posted 07/19/2012 04:30PM



When her beloved pet cat, Wabbit, went missing, Kate Beckinsale did what any distraught pet owner would do: she hired a pet detective.

"I thought, 'This is a stupid thing to do, but they have it here and I'm in L.A., and I might as well just accept it and go for it,'" she told host Jay Leno on Tuesday's episode of The Tonight Show.

But while the Total Recall star didn't have high hopes, what she received in return was far different than anything she could have predicted.

The Beckhams' Weekend: Date Night & Museum Trip

Originally posted 03/24/2008 08:40AM

David and Victoria Beckham looked like newlyweds when they tucked into a table at Los Angeles's STK with fellow Brit Kate Beckinsale and her husband, Len Wiseman, for a double date Friday night.

"Posh was giggling and laughing the whole time," says a fellow diner. "They looked totally normal, not really paying attention to anyone else but just focused on catching up and enjoying each other."

Adds another restaurant patron: "David is still really attentive to her. Her had his arm around the back of her chair and would whisper in her ear. She was beaming, the fire is still there, you can just tell."

On Easter Sunday, Victoria was spotted (sans her hot hubby) checking out the exhibits at the Getty Center Museum in Los Angeles with their three sons: Brooklyn, 9, Romeo, 5, and Cruz, 3. Beckinsale, Wiseman and their daughter, Lily, 9, joined them.

Kate Beckinsale Talks Body Image

You wouldn't think it would be too much of a stretch for one gorgeous actress to play another, but one challenge that Kate Beckinsale faced portraying screen goddess Ava Gardner in The Aviator (opening Dec. 17) is the change in body image from Gardner's era to now. "I think that the female body is definitely served up in a different way in the '40s," Beckinsale said recently. "It's a different kind of sexuality. There's not as much of their skin on show, that's for sure." Luckily, she had some help getting into it. "One of the things that was so great was that the costume designer was so attentive to the detail, down to the pantyhose and the underwear and the girdle and the pointy bra and every single thing that could possibly be authentic," said Beckinsale. Still, for the preternaturally slim star, Gardner's curves felt alien. "I had to gain some weight for this as well," she said. "In the costumes I felt sort of great. On the weekends I felt like a fat Kate."
