Total Recall Jessica Biel interview: “we were confused constantly”

Total Recall Jessica Biel interview: “we were confused constantly”

One of the most important questions of either of the iterations of the Rekall story was asked of actress Jessica Biel during our visit to the Total Recall 2012 press junket. That question was on what preparations she did for a character that may very well have not actually been real to anyone but Douglas Quaid, (not to be confused with Dennis Quaid,) a fellow whose own struggles with the reality of his situation is the basis for the whole plot of the film. Biel let it be known that not only did she have many discussions with the director Len Wiseman on what stance she was to take in her role, but whether or not she was real in the first place.

Total Recall Colin Farrell interview yields deep meaning for the sci-fi thriller

This past week Colin Farrell stepped up to the press bench with a deep explanation for what the 2012 version of Total Recall could mean for the audience. Total Recall is set to explode upon the entirety of the United States this weekend, and Farrell was certainly not shy about taking us deep into the inner-workings of the mind when it comes to this science fiction action extravaganza. Is it real, is it Rekall, or is it just the audience reading far too deep into the plot surrounding the action?

Total Recall’s Bryan Cranston discusses the Breaking Bad effect

Total Recall’s Bryan Cranston discusses the Breaking Bad effect

This past week we had the opportunity to have a chat with Bryan Cranston on his role in the 2012 science fiction action thriller Total Recall and how his role in the hit TV series Breaking Bad has all but skyrocketed him into the public eye. So well liked is the TV series that it ended up being spoken about at the press junket for Total Recall with the actor as much as the film was - but Cranston, ever the gentlemen, made no qualms about speaking on whatever the press had on their minds. How did the "goofy, silly, fun-loving dad" from Malcolm in the Middle transform himself into a science fiction villain with a methamphetamine dealer/science teacher in-between? Have a peek!

Total Recall cash: director Len Wiseman explains Obama money

When you head to the 2012 edition of Total Recall this weekend (in theaters across the USA) you'll find yourself getting a glimpse of some futuristic cash money - one of these bills in the movie showing off our current President of the United States Barack Obama. While we were having a chat with Total Recall director Len Wiseman last week about the movie after having just gotten the opportunity to screen the feature in its entirety, the subject certainly did come up - did we just see Barack Obama's face on the fifty dollar bill?

Prometheus 2 confirmed for 2014

Prometheus 2 confirmed for 2014

In a rather unceremoniously and suspiciously low-key fashion, Fox has confirmed that there will indeed be a sequel to this summer's science fiction smash hit Prometheus. This news bit comes to The Hollywood Reporter via Fox president of production Emma Watts, who notes that, "Ridley [Scott] is incredibly excited about the movie, but we have to get it right. We can't rush it." It would appear that at least two major actors from the first film are signed on to the project as well - but we must warn you that knowing who they are may very well spoil the first movie for you - so beware!

Have a peek at this 2012-based vision for the future from the meistro's seat right here and now.

Total Recall (2012) Movie Review

Total Recall (2012) Movie Review

The 2012 version of Total Recall begins with Colin Farrell bloodied and beaten lying on the floor of a room that quickly becomes a barrage of flashing lights and gunshots - then suddenly the movie is over. This movie does not let up the action to the point where several times during the film I was wishing for a blank screen just so I could recapitulate what I'd just seen. And before you get too deep into what everything means, whether or not everything is real or if it's all just one science fiction dream as the Schwarzenegger version very well may have been, you'll find that you've got a smorgasboard of visual stimulants that you'll not only want to see again - you'll want to own it all too.

Death Star ping-pong ball isn’t a moon

Death Star ping-pong ball isn’t a moon

I can't say that I've ever seen a ping-pong ball that I would look at and think, "that's pretty cool." However, a Japanese artist has created what is undeniably the coolest ping-pong ball in the history of ping-pong balls. This thing started as your typical orange table tennis ball before he worked his geek magic and turned it into an incredibly detailed replica of the Death Star from Star Wars.
