Worried that there will be few surprises or twists in the 2012 remake of "Total Recall" since you've likely seen the original Arnold Schwarzenegger-led version from 1990? Well, according to filmmaker Len Wiseman ("Underworld," "Live Free Or Die Hard") in perhaps the smartest observation he's ever made, a straight remake of that film would be pointless. Reportedly costing around $200 million, this film apparently takes a dramatically different approach from the original film's source material, Philip K. Dick's 1966 short story, "We Can Remember It For You Wholesale."

So, if you happen to be Paul McCartney, you can pretty much get anybody you want for whatever project you're working on.

And if that's not enough, he also got Christopher Nolan's regular collaborator, cinematographer Wally Pfister, to shoot them. Like we said, dude can make anything happen.

Things are not looking good for Marion Cotillard.

A new poster and a few more images have arrived in advance of the film's French release (courtesy of our pals at Cinema Teaser), and on top of the already stunning trailer, the movie is building up to be one of our most anticipated of the year.

It's been six years since husband and wife filmmaking duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris directed their critical acclaimed indie dramedy "Little Miss Sunshine" which was nominated for four Oscars including Best Picture that year.

What's the take on the Spider-Man character this time? "He’s a lone wolf… Erratic, angry, rebellious," Andrew Garfield told Total Film recently. "Peter is an outsider. Because that’s what he has to do to protect himself. He was dropped once; he doesn’t want to be dropped again. It’s difficult to get close to him.”

Were Matthew McConaughey and Gwyneth Paltrow originally up for roles in James Cameron's "Titanic" as rumored over the years? Cameron ain't sayin'. However, what starts out as what seems like a kind of jokey answer appears to devolve into some semi-bitter memories of the era when everyone believed Cameron was creating a $100 million disaster (expensive for that day and age).
