Award show season is just around the corner, meaning red carpet season is just around the corner—and if celebrities know how to do one thing perfectly, it’s to wear designer duds and a full face of make up. Case in point: Selena Gomez’s dramatic back, and the Jenner Sister’s looking like pin-up dolls 5 years their senior. Who gets your vote for best dressed?
Los Angeles experienced a sizzling hot Saturday night at the 2014 LACMA Art + Film Gala honoring artist Barbara Kruger and filmmaker Quentin Tarantino. In very L.A. fashion, a Kardashian was there along with multiple A-List bombshells — Salma Hayek, we’re looking at you! Kate Hudson looked like a bronze statue and once again Camilla Belle wore exactly what we wanted her to. Who’s your best dressed of the night?

Everyone dreams about being someone else. But what happens when you pay to make the dream real, and then the dream turns out to be real anyways? Amazingly enough, this is not a transcript of some stoned freshman dorm room hypothesizing, but the premise behind a real movie: Total Recall, a remake of the 1990 Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle based off a Philip K. Dick short story. Colin Farrell plays a guy who pays to give himself memories of being an especially cool guy, only it turns out he was the cool guy all along and must now uncover the conspiracy that his brain was protecting. Kate Beckinsale shows up as his fake wife, Jessica Biel is there as his maybe-new wife, and Bryan Cranston is the bad guy at the end. This could be fun, if not confusing!
It turns out that when you replace the Terminator with just about anyone, it becomes a lot easier to write a serious movie. This remake may trend a little too dramatic — indeed, CGI-aided fight scenes stopped being a novelty around the last Matrix movie — but the original concept remains as intriguing as ever when pulled off correctly, assuming you’ve read the original PKD story and know the crazy places it goes to. (Here’s a link! It’s pretty short, so take a break and treat yourself.)
Speaking of mixed viral marketing messages, check out the movie’s two websites — totalrecall.com, which is an standard promotional site, and totalrekall.com, which mocks up the clinic where Farrell has his memory-changing procedure performed. Such dedication to an unnecessary ideal. And yes, sadly, the (obviously NSFW) three-boobed alien prostitute is nowhere to be seen, though we can eventually dream of her making her way into the final cut. Total Recall is out on August 3.
