Ryan Reynolds IS the New Highlander!

~From CraveOnline.com

The rumors appear to be true: Ryan Reynolds has been cast as Connor MacLeod in Juan Fresnadillo's Highlander remake, after what The Tracking Board is calling "roughly a month of negotiations." It's the same role that made Christopher Lambert a star back in 1986. Since Ryan Reynolds is already a star, we have to assume that this new Highlander will turn him into Christopher Lambert.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo is directing the remake after cutting his teeth on films like Intacto, 28 Weeks Later and Intruders. The plot, as if you didn't know, follows a small group of immortals throughout the centuries as they duel each other to win the ultimate prize: which turned out, in the original film, to be mortality. Which is really kind of odd, if you think about it. They're fighting each other to the death... for the ability to die? They already can die, so they're just fighting to be allowed to grow old and then die? It must be one of those "grass is always greener" things.

Though well-liked by most, Ryan Reynolds has had some difficulty segueing from comedian to action star. Blade Trinity bombed, X-Men Origins: Wolverine has few fans, Green Lantern should be spoken of as little as humanly possible and Safe House, while successful, benefitted from Reynold's high profile co-star. It's been argued, however, that Reynolds was not the fundamental problem with any of the above films. With Fresnadillo at the helm, will Highlander be the action franchise he's been looking for all these years?

New TOTAL RECALL Trailer includes 3-breasted Woman!

~From io9.com

There's been one question fans have had about the new Total Recall movie since it was greenlit. Not, "Will this film make me question the nature of reality and whether people are the sum of their memories?" But rather, "Will there still be a sex worker with three breasts?" (As we've covered in the past, this is an essential element of many great science fiction sagas.)

Now, you need wonder no longer. The latest trailer for Total Recall (below) includes a sassy lady who promises Colin Farrell, "You're going to wish you had three hands." Also, Kate Beckinsale is pretty great in the Sharon Stone role, even doing a similar aerobics-based attack on Farrell, and quipping, "What can I say? I give good wife." It looks like it'll be closer to Paycheck than to one of the top tiers of Philip K. Dick movies, but it still could be a fun romp.
