But if the soothing sensation of a cool, dark room isn't enough to attract the audience, what is? Here's a recap of this summer's hits and misses at the box office.

The season kicked off big time with "The Avengers," which brought in a record $207.4 million during its first weekend. Performances by stars such as Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Scarlett Johansson brought life to Iron Man,...

Review: 'Total Recall' Is Entertaining But Not All That Memorable

August 4th, 2012 7:15am EDT
Total Recall 2012
This is an action thriller about reality and memory. The film, directed by Len Wiseman (Underworld) is inspired by Philip K. Dick's short story 'We Can Remember It for You Wholesale'.

The time is the future...And it's a very bleak one indeed. Most of the earth, thanks to war, is now uninhabitable. There's only the United Federation of Britain, where the 'haves' live and the Colony where the 'have-nots' reside.

Here we meet factory worker Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell) who even though he has a very hot wife (Kate Beckinsale) whom he loves, the dude is very unhappy. He feels something is m...

Total Recall And 8 Other 90s Film Remakes

August 3rd, 2012 1:07pm EDT
Total Recall
Think it's too early to remake films from the 1990s? Think again. Total Recall, the sci-fi action hit from 1990, has the spotlight once again as its remake hits theaters this weekend. In honor of the occasion we took a look at films from the 1990s that have been repurposed - we use that word, because half of these films are ideas lifted from other countries.

Bangkok Dangerous: Nicolas Cage's production company purchased the right to a remake of a 1999 Thai shoot-em-up of the same name. Basically, Cage goes to Bangkok and kills a lot of people. The film was thrashed in reviews, but it sti...

Review: Carbon Copy Remake 'Total Recall' Forgets To Take The Good Stuff

August 3rd, 2012 10:02am EDT
Total Recall
Normally in the case of the famed ‘remake’ there is usually some room to put aside original flick stigma and focus on the updated outing as a film unto itself. Unfortunately the 2012 version of "Total Recall" plays so close to the chest on all copycat accounts that it’s hard to make such distinctions. In fact the new Len Wiseman helmed upgrade takes a ton of material from the five-star Paul Verhoeven classic – except everything that made it great.

If you know either the Philip K. Dick short story or the Verhoeven flick you know the drill – everyman Doug Quaid has a nice wife and a decent...

Timberlake proposed last December. Biel recently confessed she hasn't started planning her wedding yet and is open to a long engagement.

Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale made a fashion statement at the "Total Recall" premiere in Hollywood on Wednesday. The actress slithered down the red carpet in a textured green and black dress that looked like it was made of snake skin.

Few actresses could pull off a dress like that and make it look good, but Kate managed to do so.

In the remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Kate has a fight scene with Jessica Biel. Beckinsale recently told Allure magazine, "It's not like a naked, porno, mud-wrestling-in-a-bar sort of fight, it's a real fight."

Jessica Biel and Kaitlyn Leeb
Jessica Biel was quick to locate the most popular girl at Comic Con last weekend, and she didn't have to go very far to find her.

Amongst all the Wonder Women, Catwomen, Slave Princess Leias and other sexy costumes at this year's convention, one woman stood out for three big reasons.

Actress Kaitlyn Leeb, who portrays a hooker with three breasts in director Len Wiseman's remake of Total Recall; which features Biel; was in full character at this year's convention - and turned lots of heads. We're guessing there were plenty of double and, ahem, triple takes from attendees passing by the fil...

The Adjustment Bureau
The trustees of Philip K. Dick's estate have re-launched their legal battle with the producers of Matt Damon thriller The Adjustment Bureau, two months after the initial lawsuit was dropped.

The late author's executors claim the estate is owed money from the 2011 adaptation of the writer's sci-fi story, Adjustment Team, and filed a lawsuit last year targeting director George Nolfi, producer Michael Hackett, Media Rights Capitol and its subsidiaries.

The case was dropped in February after a judge threw out key parts of the suit, but representatives of the Philip K. Dick Testamentary Trus...

'Total Recall' Trailer Showcases Summer Thrills And Action

April 2nd, 2012 3:00pm EDT
Total Recall
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...

Jessica Biel
Jessica Biel steams up the April 2012 issue of W magazine and talks about "pits full of snakes", her apologetic teen years and filming all the action in her upcoming remake of Total Recall.

Jessica spoke with W's Lynn Hirschberg, who asked the newly engaged (to Justin Timberlake!) actress about the first move she ever saw.

"The Goonies. I never identified with girls, and the cast was all boys. Girls were nervous about going into caves; they were scaredy-cats - and I wasn't into that at all," she says. "I loved the idea of being with a crew and having an adventure.

Kate Beckinsale is one of those stars who doesn't seem to age - and it's NOT because of plastic surgery. She's just genetically gorgeous! The 38-year-old looks as lovely today as she did when she burst on the scene with her 2001 breakthrough role "Pearl Harbor."

She wore a short lace dress to the Film Independent Spirit Awards nominations press conference in Los Angeles today.

It's Fashion Fail Friday! That means we take a break from letting you know how good all of your favorite stars look to show the other side of fashion: The fails!

Jessica Biel appeared at Comic Con to talk about the Total Recall remake. Perhaps all that time discussing the original film has her thinking it's the 90s again, because that's where her hiked-up shorts and belly-baring shirt belong.

Remember when denim dresses were stylish? Neither do we, but apparently they were. Rose McGowan is trying to bring the fad back, and she fails miserably in a dress that looks like an over-sized pan...
