"Total Recall"

Colin Farrell steps into Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 shoes in the newest trailer for the "Total Recall" remake, another adaptation of Philip K Dick's story about a futuristic "Rekall" procedure that can implant memories in your mind.

In keeping with director Len Wiseman's promise that his adaptation will feature the infamous three-breasted prostitute, you can catch a glimpse of her at around 0:25.

Kate Beckinsale will play Farrell's treacherous wife. Jessica Biel also stars.

"Total Recall" opens August 3.

"Red Hook Summer"

Director Spike Lee has released the trailer for his new film "Red Hook Summer," about a young, middle-class boy's summer with his preacher grandfather, played by "The Wire's" Clark Peters, in the projects of Red Hook, Brooklyn.

According to an official synopsis, young Flik has to reconcile "his grandfather's constant preaching and the culture shock of inner-city life."

As reported, several studios had originally refused to produce the film, worried about a particular scene involving sex and the bible, to which Lee responded, " “They [studios] know nothing about black people, and they’re going to give me notes about what a 13-year-old boy and girl are doing in Red Hook?”

"Red Hook Summer" opens August 10.
