The cast of Total Recall continued their string of press with a stop in Ireland yesterday. Jessica Biel wore a strapless Zac Posen dress while Kate Beckinsale went with a dramatic pink gown. Kate posed on the arm of her husband, and the movie's director, Len Wiseman, while Colin Farrell had his mom, Rita, by his side. Before Kate and Colin hit the red carpet, they stopped by a Dublin studio to chat up the project. Kate, Colin, and Jessica have been in front of the cameras for their film since July, though the overseas leg of promotions kicked off in Berlin just yesterday.
Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale dressed up for this evening's premiere of Total Recall in Berlin. They each donned floor-length gowns for the German debut, with Kate in a light design from Naeem Khan and Jessica working a back-baring Elie Saab. It seems the cast didn't stick around afterward — Jessica tweeted a picture of a jet this evening with the caption, "Auf wiedersehen, Berlin!" Kate, Jessica, and their leading man Colin Farrell kicked things off this morning. Jessica Biel wore Christian Cota to a photocall for the picture, which hit theaters in the US earlier this month.
Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, and Kate Beckinsale were in Berlin this morning for a photocall supporting their movie, Total Recall. Jessica looked well-rested after a weekend getaway in Puerto Rico, where she spent time with her fiancé, Justin Timberlake. JT's on the island working on a movie project of his own, Runner, Runner. This morning, Jessica showed a bit of tummy in her printed Christian Cota cutout dress. Kate, though, went more modest in a purple frock. Kate's able to embark on the press tour with her leading man by her side — Total Recall was directed by Kate's husband, Len Wiseman. The remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger movie came out in the US on Aug. 3. It wasn't a hit with critics, but came in sixth at the weekend box office nonetheless.
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel joined their Total Recall leading man Colin Farrell on the red carpet at LA's Grauman's Chinese Theatre for their premiere last night. Jessica went ladylike in pink Christian Dior Couture, and Kate upped the drama in a reptilian Armani Privé creation. Kate walked the red carpet with her husband, the movie's director, Len Wiseman. Jessica's other half, Justin Timberlake, wasn't able to make it. She told us yesterday that he's off working on his own movie, so he wasn't able to weigh in on her sartorial decisions like he usually does. Colin also had a lady on his arm, his sister Claudine Farrell. Colin mentioned to us that he was excited to see the action film for the first time, as a finished product, at Grauman's. He celebrated Len's creation with Jessica and Kate at the afterparty. Stay tuned for our video from the event later today on PopSugar Rush!
Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale flanked Colin Farrell at their Total Recall photocall held at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills on Saturday. The trio, along with costar Bryan Cranston, have been participating in the press junket at the hotel for the past couple of days ahead of their big LA premiere next week. Jessica took advantage of a short break in her promotional duties to visit fiancé Justin Timberlake in Puerto Rico. Jessica donned a bikini to play paddleball with a shirtless JT on the beach. Jessica said the island getaway was the "best time" of her life, but perhaps it will be dethroned by her upcoming wedding! Jessica and Justin are rumored to be tying the knot this Summer, though they've yet to reveal a date. Kate also had her own good times with her leading man when they celebrated her 39th birthday together on Thursday.
Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Biel hit Comic-Con yesterday on behalf of their movie Total Recall, which was directed by Kate's husband, Len Wiseman. Colin Farrell plays the lead in the picture, which is a remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger film. Kate, Colin, and Jessica all posed for photos before heading in to take the stage. We snagged a minute with the cheeky Colin, who referred to Kate as the on-set potty mouth.
We also caught up with Jessica. We got the scoop on Jessica's love of Summer whites — which is very appropriate considering her upcoming wedding to Justin Timberlake — as well as what it was like on the set with Kate and Colin. Jessica filled us in on how she and Justin compare notes after tough days on set, whether it was her with Total Recall or Justin with an action movie like In Time. Jessica said, "We're just constantly telling each other about ridiculous things that happen on set. Like, 'I completely fell and actually punched the ground.' . . . And he's like, 'Don't worry, it's OK. I'm not going to tell anybody.' It's more consoling each other."
Jessica Biel joined Kate Beckinsale and Colin Farrell at a press event for Total Recall in Cancun yesterday. Jessica plays a kick-ass futuristic leader in the '90s remake, which hits theaters this Summer, while Colin's character is married to Kate on the big screen.
Jessica met up with her costars in Mexico after attending the opening of Jenni Kayne's Brentwood boutique last week. A few days before the fashionable LA appearance, Jessica wrapped up a trip to Europe with fiancé Justin Timberlake. Jessica might have been wedding dress shopping during the getaway, which also included a sweet dinner date with Justin. The couple is reportedly planning to wed this Summer, but in the meantime, Justin is staying busy with the launch of HomeMint, his latest venture with interior designer Estee Stanley.
The remake of Total Recall is heading into theaters this Summer, with Colin Farrell taking on the role of Doug Quaid (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1990 original). Set in a futuristic society, the movie follows Doug, a factory worker who decides to check out a mysterious place called Rekall to get a break from his daily life and have his fantasies implanted as memories. His little mind vacation is interrupted when a white-haired John Cho freaks out and stops the procedure, suspecting Doug as a spy. Doug is confused, and even more so when he suddenly has super-spy skills, like wasting every soldier who tries to stop him. When he gets home to his lovely wife (Kate Beckinsale), it turns out that she's also different, and trying to kill Doug too.
I'm admittedly not a huge fan of the '90s sci-fi flick, but this trailer is so action-packed that I'm interested, and the special effects look absolutely fantastic in this preview. And it certainly does not hurt that Farrell looks great kicking butt and taking names. Watch the trailer to see what you think, and get a look at the rest of the cast, which also includes Jessica Biel and Bryan Cranston after the jump.
Michelle Williams wore Givenchy to hit the green carpet in LA last night at the annual Oscar Wilde: Honoring the Irish in Film event. She was named honorary Irishwoman at the ceremony, which brought out proud Irish people like Colin Farrell, Kenneth Branagh, and musician Sharon Corr. Kenneth stars alongside Michelle in My Week With Marilyn, which earned her multiple nominations this award season. The two-month run of shows will culminate at Sunday's Academy Awards, where Michelle is up for best actress thanks to her portrayal of Marilyn Monroe — have you filled out your Oscars ballot yet? Make sure to enter by Saturday night to get in the running to win an iPad.
Previous winners of the Oscar Wilde honor include Paul Rudd and James L. Brooks. Michelle, though, is the first woman to receive the accolade. Colin approves of the choice, telling us before the ceremony that he loved Michelle's work in the Marilyn picture. Michelle was humbled by the prize, and said, "I consider it [the award] is from a land and from a people who are known for poetry, for literature and lore, for myth and legend. Being in a business that is about storytelling, I'm honored to be acknowledged by the original storytellers."
Sandra Bullock wore a sequined All Saints mini to attend last night's amfAR Inspiration Gala at LA's Chateau Marmont. She was joined on the black carpet by industry friends like her agent, Kevin Huvane. She shared space on the photo line with other leading ladies like Selma Blair and Garcelle Beauvais, and once inside, mingled with pals like Sean Penn and Colin Farrell, who brought his sister Claudine Farrell as his date. Kevin Huvane bought a Warhol painting for Sandra's son Louis during the evening's auction portion. Sandra joked about Kevin's buying Warhol's "Peaches" print for $14,000 while onstage addressing the crowd and paying tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. Sandra said, "I want to thank Kevin Huvane and Bryan Lourd for not being cheap f-cks and gifting my son with his first Warhol."
Sandra's back on the West Coast following a recent stay in NYC, where she joined best bud Ryan Reynolds to celebrate his 35th birthday. Ryan Reynolds brought girlfriend Blake Lively along for the bash at the club The Box, but the couple have now also left the Big Apple. Blake and Ryan are in Boston together, so he can continue working on R.I.P.D. with Jeff Bridges.
