If you are on the fence about whether a Total Recall remake is a good idea, perhaps the first full-length trailer could convince you that this is a film worth checking out.

The trailer sets up what we already know from the original: The main character Douglas Quaid (played by Colin Farrell this time around) is bored with his everyday life. 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.

The gorgeous Underworld: Awakening star had about a minute of screen time doing her duty as a presenter at this year's Grammy Awards (she co-introduced Katy Perry's performance with host LL Cool J) at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, and that was surely enough to get the blood flowing in living rooms across the country.

The actress, accompanied by daughter Lily Mo Sheen, looked stunning in a short cream colored Zuhair Murad dress on the red carpet before the show.

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...

Actress Kate Beckinsale once forced her mother to "dump" a large rubber penis at a Montreal, Canada airport after a saucy prank went awry.

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.

Trailer Talk: This Week
I felt incredibly silly last week when I was supposed to see Mark Wahlberg’s “Contraband.”  I showed up at the wrong theater, and ended up missing my screening.  From what I’ve heard from my colleagues though, I didn’t miss anything fantastic.  One of them compared it in quality to last year’s remake “The Mechanic,” better than expected, but nothing special.

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)...
