Their fans have wondered for four years whether the pair would ever make it "official." Done and done, folks. Thursday night in the southern Italian city of Fasano, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were finally wed, E! Online reported Friday. Family and close friends gathered around the pair the city's Borgo Egnazia resort. Attendees included Jimmy Fallon and his own wife Nancy Juvonen, "Saturday Night Live" alum and sometime Timberlake collaborator Andy Samberg, Timberlake's fellow former NSYNC bandmate Chris Kirkpatrick, and Biel's one-time "7th Heaven" castmate Beverly Mitchell.
If you're looking for a new movie to see in theaters this weekend, your pickings are slim. The new openers include just one major release, unless you count the kid-friendly "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days," and not a lot that's getting good reviews. Here's the scoop on the weekend's two big titles: "Total Recall" Rated PG-13, 2 hrs 01 min Back for a remake after the 1990 classic with Arnold Schwarzenegger, this newer adaptation of Philip K. Dick's short story once again centers on a man who is unsure of what is real when faced with a simulation that implants false memories.
If we believed every wedding rumor, then Brangelina would have made it legal years ago. Jessica Biel, the hot-bodied star of “Total Recall,” did not tie the knot with “In Time” actor and fiancé Justin Timberlake, despite stirring gossip that the two had gotten married over the weekend. Rumors were flying that the longtime couple had snuck off and gotten hitched on the DL, but, apparently, they are unfounded. Reports had the two exchanging rings at a ski resort in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which probably should have been a sign that the story was a fabrication in the first place, because of a place called Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
She won't be going toe-to-toe with Wolverine after all. That's hardly to say Jessica Biel will be done setting pulses racing after her turn next month in "Total Recall." As evinced by the trailer below, she's next due for a walk on the darker side in "The Tall Man" Aug. 31. Directed by Pascal Laugier, the horror thriller sets the beautiful Biel as nurse Julia Denning amid a middle-of-nowhere mining town with an epidemic of disappearing children. Locals blame the disappearances on a mysterious, shadowed entity they call "The Tall Man" (Hooray, a title!) She's not buying it, right up until her young son David vanishes in the middle of one dark night.
For fans of the original "Total Recall," the reboot is being approached with caution; after all, nobody wants to see some slick new effects-heavy remake sully the memory of what was a fantastically cheesy but still satisfying 80's sci-fi movie. But there's one piece of fan service that the movie has been sure to include: the three-breasted prostitute. The character made an appearance in the original movie, and became one of the more talked-about and recognizable memories from the film.
It feels like its been forever since word leaked about the progress with this summer's coming "Total Recall" remake. That drought ends today, with Columbia's teaser for the Colin Farrell thrill ride's April 1 debut trailer. Reportedly based more closely upon the source-material Phillip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale than Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 original film, it's the story of futuristic everyman Douglas Quaid (originally Schwarzenegger, now Farrell.
The remake of "Total Recall" was the most recent movie to use the teaser to a trailer tactic, as the teaser spot a few days ago told us to watch out for the full trailer. It's an odd tactic, but it worked for "The Hunger Games" and the trailer for "Total Recall" might just be worth the fanfare. There are many fans of the original "Total Recall," which came out in 1990 and featured Arnold Schwarzenegger, who wonder if a remake is even necessary. Sony seems to have two responses to this: one, this remake will be more faithful to the original Phillip K.
