Yep, it’s another one. Three years after the last installment, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, the vampire/werewolf film series not penned by Stephenie Meyer is back for a fourth round with the generically titled Underworld: Awakening. After sitting out most of the last entry, Kate Beckinsale has poured herself back into her skintight leather bodysuit to reprise her role as sexy vampire warrior Selene.
Upon emerging from a lengthy imprisonment in a coma-like state, Selene learns that 1) she has a teenage vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter named Eve (played by India Eisley) — the only one of her kind; and 2) vampires and Lycans are now being hunted by humans. Cue explosions, ass-kicking, many shades of blue, and all the other things we’ve come to expect from the Underworld franchise. Watch the new theatrical trailer after the jump.

So many set videos have surfaced from The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel it almost feels like they’re the only three movies currently in production. Obviously, that’s far from the case and another major 2012 event film has just been forced into the set video ring. That movie is Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho. Several photos popped online last month of robots walking around the set and now videos have surfaced that show a bunch of different hovercars on impressive rigs.
These videos, of course, should be considered minor spoilers. Click on the jump to check them out. Read More »

We’ve been following the Total Recall remake for a few years now, wondering what to expect from the retooled adaptation of Philip K. Dick‘s short story. We’ve already covered some of the differences between Len Wiseman‘s new version and Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 film, but a new interview has surfaced indicating that at least one key aspect will stay the same: the new Total Recall will most definitely include an appearance by a three-breasted woman, just as the original Total Recall did.

Over the weekend at the San Diego Comic Con, Sony showed off the first footage from Len Wiseman‘s new version of Total Recall, starring Colin Farrell. The director and star appeared on a panel along with Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston and John Cho to talk about the movie. What we saw positioned the film as, well, very Len Wiseman. The slick style that he displayed in Underworld and Live Free or Die Hard is very much in evidence. The footage was flashy and full of CGI-stitched camera moves that make the action look as much like something out of a game as out of an action movie. We’ve got some thoughts on the presentation and a few new facts about the film after the break. Read More »
Yesterday we saw the first images of sets for the new Total Recall sets, on them some white-suited troopers. Now we’ve got the first image of Colin Farrell in the lead role of Doug Quaid, a factory worker who learns, or thinks he learns, that he is really a spy for one of two nation states, Euromerica or New Shanghai. See the full image after the break. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Len Wiseman‘s big screen adaptation/remake of Total Recall is shooting this week the Toronto Convention Centre in Toronto, Ontario Canada, and a bunch of set photos have hit the web showing “Federal Police” hover cars, a bunch of extras in futuristic looking trooper costumes, large green screens, and a large 14-foot green beanbag which will probably be replaced by some sort of computer created creature or device. Hit the jump to see the photos for yourself.

How can you have an American Reunion without the guy who brought the phrase “M.I.L.F” to the masses? Probably because he’ll be off planting memories in Colin Farrell. Two big bits of casting were recently revealed as Shannon Elizabeth, who played foreign exchange student Nadia in the first two American Pie movies, has finally signed to appear in the American Pie sequel American Reunion. Another Pie-alum, John Cho, who has had arguably the best career (maybe save for Seann William Scott) of all the people in the series, probably won’t be appearing though because he’s just signed to play McClane, one of the representatives who temps Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) to implant memories in his head in Len Wiseman‘s Total Recall remake.

With an August 2012 release date looming, shooting on Len Wiseman‘s remake of Total Recall is set to begin next week in Toronto. We know that Colin Farrell will be Douglas Quaid and Bryan Cranston will be one of the villains but what of the two ladies in Quaid’s life, so famously portrayed by in the original Sharon Stone and Rachel Ticotin? Previous reports have now confirmed to be true as Wiseman’s wife, Kate Beckinsale, will be playing Lori, Quaid’s wife in his “normal” life and Jessica Biel will be Rachel, the girl Quaid meets in his spy life. Also just announced is that Bill Nighy, who played a pretty gruesome character in the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, has been cast as Quatto, the leader of the resistance.

So does the new Total Recall go to Mars, or not? At first we assumed it did, then it seemed like perhaps it wouldn’t after all, then there was a suggestion that Mars was still part of the picture. But the latest trade break says that Mars is gone, period. Maybe that’s for the best, because while I like Colin Farrell and am ready to see his version of Quaid, the character made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the Paul Verhoeven original, I’m not sure I need to see him tell himself “get your ass to Mars.”
This info comes by way of a minor casting report that actually reveals a cameo in the film. If you don’t want to know who the cameo is then stop reading here. (I don’t think it will end up being massively spoilerish, but you never know.) And no, it isn’t Arnold. Read More »
