Matt had just typed out the title of his 'Seven Psychopaths' review, his byline, and the rating (seven -- no, make that eight --out of ten?) when his wife Melissa walked into the room.
"How was the movie?" she asked as she flopped down on the couch and flipped on the television.
"Good. Really good," Matt replied. "Interesting."
"Interesting? Why interesting?" Melissa said. She started flipping channels.
"It's about a writer who writes himself into his work. Colin Farrell plays this struggling screenwriter named Martin -- and the movie was written and directed by this guy, Martin McDonagh, who wrote that play we saw on Broadway with Christopher Walken in it."
"Right. That was weird."
"It was," he said, nodding. "Weird but good. So, anyway, Colin Farrell plays this writer named Martin. He's come up with a title he really likes for a screenplay -- 'Seven Psychopaths.' But that's all he has, the title. He doesn't even have the seven psychopaths. But then these people in his life -- or perhaps these characters he's invented -- are all revealed to be psychopaths, and he gets caught in the middle of this elaborate gangster-slash-revenge comedy with them involving a kidnapped dog."
Melissa yawned again. "A writer writing himself into his work? That sounds like a terrible idea."

Now the film has a series of posters: one main one-sheet and an additional poster for each of the titular psychopaths, showcasing the movie's mind-blowing cast.

'Total Recall' Review

Len Wiseman is good at what he does -- and what he does is make mindless action films. Unfortunately, that makes him a poor choice to direct a remake of 'Total Recall,' since what makes the material so great is the fact that it's anything but mindless.
Wisemen is totally uninterested in the very thing that makes 'Total Recall' interesting -- namely its poker-faced presentation of a story with two totally viable interpretations. Is what we're watching really happening? Or is it all a dream? In investigating the nature of reality amidst a barrage of chases and fight scenes, the first 'Total Recall' was a unique pleasure: an action movie with brains and brawn. Wiseman strips away the subtext and ambiguity, puts his head down, and barrels along from one scene to the next.

Right now, everyone’s in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ mode. You can forgive Hollywood for forgetting, albeit temporarily, that there are other films coming out this summer. ‘The Watch’ looks funny, and ‘The Bourne Legacy’ could kick serious ass. We're also excited for ‘Total Recall,’ which wowed the crowds at San Diego Comic-Con and now continues to tease with a new clip.

Len Wiseman's remake of 'Total Recall' is one of this summer's biggest wild cards. Will audiences flock to a remake of a modern classic that abandons much of what makes the original so beloved? Is Colin Farrell capable of drawing the crowds? Why does the whole thing look so much like 'Minority Report'? So many questions...which is certainly appropriate for a movie that appears to be all about asking questions. The latest TV spot emphasizes the film's memory-wiping, identity-seeking twists alongside all of the futuristic action.
