Last year at Comic-Con Len Wiseman and co. offered a tease of the anticipated remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1990 sci-fi flick, “Total Recall.” Outside the San Diego Convention Center, sexy futuristic lady officers stood with guns beside a future cop car.

Well, a movie calling itself "Epic" should probably kick off with an appropriately epic trailer. While we didn't quite get that with this, the first glimpse from the Fox/Blue Sky Studios' (loose) adaptation of the William Joyce book "The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs," it's still a promising-enough looking clip that draws us into a strange and magical world.

Well, this will be an interesting little experiment. While both have been part of hit films, neither Noomi Rapace or Colin Farrell are necessarily marquee names. Sure, Rapace was part of the successful Swedish version of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" and is currently starring in "Prometheus," but that movie is sold on concept, not her name. As for Farrell, he's always been a wildcard, hard to predict, and he was likely more known last summer for his brief supporting role in "Horrible Bosses" than as the wicked villain of "Fright Night."

We've long discussed the career of Colin Farrell, one that hasn't particularly been on steady rise so much as moved in fits and starts. The actor has tackled franchises and indies in equal measure, with some more successful than others. This year sees him lead the "Total Recall" remake and star in Martin McDonagh's "Seven Psychopaths," and he's filming the thriller "Dead Man Down" as well. And while we'll have to see how those films play out, his next endeavor is kind of a no brainer for success.

By this point, there isn't much left to reveal about Len Wiseman's "Total Recall." The trailers have made it clear it's going to be a pretty average sci-fi flick, granted, with some identity twisting traits, but nothing that has had us truly sitting up and taking notice. To recap, Colin Farrell is in the lead as Doug Quaid, a man who goes to get some false memories implanted in his brain but quickly becomes a target when he's mistaken as somebody else. Or is he? Reality and imagination blur as he tries to get to the bottom of what happened with Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, Bill Nighy and more along for the ride.

20th Century Fox and Blue Sky have certainly never been shy about padding out their animated movies with as many big time celebrity voices as possible, and while the jury is still out on whether or not it makes a difference to the quality of the end product, it certainly can't hurt, and it makes the red carpet a lot more fun.

What's it like to have your memory scrubbed? Well, if the marketing team behind "Total Recall" do their job right, then you will have forgotten about the 1990 film directed by Paul Verhoeven and starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. And they've pumped out a few more images to help get that job done.

While the Swedish 'Dragon Tattoo' films didn't grip us as much as David Fincher's version, the overall success of the films (and, in this case, the first film) has paved the way for the talent involved, director Niels Arden Oplev and actress Noomi Rapace. Now hard at work on an English-language reunion, "Dead Man Down," the duo have managed to get us excitied with a grimey-sounding revenge-actioner that boasts a stellar cast that includes Colin Farrell, Dominic Cooper, Terrence Howard and Isabelle Huppert.

There hasn't been a lack of hunky dudes for Warner Bros. and Akiva Goldsman to look at for the male lead in the writer/producer's directorial debut "A Winter's Tale." With "Downton Abbey" star Jessica Brown-Findlay already tipped as the frontrunner for the female lead, a handful of names have already been batted around to feature opposite the actress including Benjamin Walker, Tom Hiddleston, Aaron Johnson and Garrett Hedlund. But the the filmmaker and the studio have floated the offer out to someone else entirely.
