Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Len "Die Hard 4.0" Wiseman is in negotiations to remake Total Recall. Sony Columbia are interested in updating Arnie's 1980 sci-fi favourite, which saw Douglas Quaid take a trip to Mars (inside his head) through a company specialising in fake memories.

Of course, everything goes wrong, and the construction worker starts to recall that he's really a spy who's had his cover blown. Which leads to a mental mix of Mars (for real), colonial civil war, and women with three breasts.

Philip K Dick is to blame, with his original story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale being so good that it not only inspired Paul Verhoeven's movie adaptation, but also talk of sequels, spin-offs and remakes for years now.

Kurt Wimmer (who wrote Equilibrium and Salt) is scribbling away at a script, with Wiseman hoping to hop on at the helm - it's either that, or do another Die Hard movie. Talk about a dilemma.
