When he learns about a service that implants memories, he thinks he has found a way to feel fulfilled - until a squad of troops begins shooting up the place.

In the trailer, we see Quaid "snap" and begin taking down the troops with lethality that surp...

Asking if Kate Beckinsale could be more beautiful is like asking if something can be "more perfect" than it already is.

2012 Grammy Awards
The 2012 Grammy Awards will forever be remembered for one reason: the event took place the night after the music industry lost one of their biggest stars in an untimely fashion: Whitney Houston.

Despite the somber undertones of host LL Cool J's opening prayer for the late singer and a rousing performance of her hit song "I Will Always Love You" by Jennifer Hudson; the night was about the music and the attitude that the show must go on.

As always with award shows, the night is also about the fashion. While many stars wore black - perhaps in honor of the late Houston - many stars let the c...

The Underworld: Awakening star stashed the phallus in her mom's hand luggage while she was packing to return home to England after a film set visit - because she thought it would amuse her when customs officials found it.

But the actress' make-up artist, who gave her the penis as a gift, persuaded her not to put her mother through the humiliation.

There were very few fashion missteps at this year's event. "Homeland" actress Morena Baccarin wore a daring black dress that showed quite a bit of cleavage (is that appropriate?), while "Ringer" star Sarah Michelle Gellar took a chance with a blue and white tie-dyed gown (too bohemian?).

There wasn't a lot of flash on the red carpet. Few stars wore sequins (Laura Dern, Madonna, Diane Lane and did)...
