The Expendables 3 Poster

 


Total Recall Red Carpet Premiere

Total Recall 2012 Movie Poster

Interesting. I watched this when I was a kid! Though we won’t be seeing Mr. Schwarzenegger today folks, instead we got three big ones, Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, and Jessica Biel.

Remakes always draw comparison to the original no matter how producers try to avoid it, I still haven’t watched this so I can’t say much just yet. For now, let’s compare the trailers…

1990 TRAILER WITH ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

 

2012 TRAILER WITH COLLIN FARRELL

I kinda choose the original over the remake (as in most of the time) and I’m an Arnold fan so I’ve made my decision, a biased one haha. What’s yours? The new one’s still pretty cool though.

Alright let’s get started. Smile guys, you’re on camera!

Cameraman

You’re gonna be on TV tomorrow!

The celebs aren’t here yet. Let’s spot some interesting stuff. Let me see what my camera finds… aah that’s a nice one…

soldier

It’s a Stormtrooper! Wait, what? What is this, Star Wars? I see three of these guys here. Maybe the soldiers on this film look like them.

Let’s look for something more…

Colin Farrell Poster

Yeah. That fits better. Colin Farrell’s picture ready to be signed. That guy holding it is probably gonna sell it later haha.

Here we go, celebrity arrivals…

Wave to fans, sign autographs, then go straight to the press for the interviews…

celebrity interview

John Cho is here! He’s very well known from the Harold and Kumar films but if you remember, he’s also from American Pie, one half of the guys who introduced us to the term, “MILF”!!! MILF! MILF! MILF! And like the rest of the cast, he’s back for American Reunion. Today he’s here for Total Recall of course, but I just feel like shouting “MILF! MILF! MILF!!!”

John Cho

I’ve seen John before but I didn’t get a good shot, now here’s my chance! Here he is being interviewed by Renee Bargh of Extra!

John Cho

Bryan Cranston also stops by. He’s most well known for his roles is Malcolm in the Middle and Breaking Bad.

Here comes the beautiful Kate Beckinsale being escorted by husband and executive producer/director of the film, Len Wiseman.

Kate Beckinsale & Len Wiseman

By the way, I just watched Much Ado About Nothing a couple of days ago. She’s so cute there! And I didn’t realize she was Hero until after I saw the film credits. Okay back to present time… she looks so lovely in that beautiful long gown!

Kate Beckinsale & Len Wiseman

And for all you folks, this is how you take a celebrity photo with style!

Taking pictures

Another beautiful lady has arrived, no other than Jessica Biel…

Jessica Biel

I’m not very much into fashion but that gown just looks a bit weird from behind. What do you think?

Jessica Biel's Gown

Is that the one Justin Timberlake gave her? I wish I could get a close up shot of her ring.

Jessica Biel's Ring

Let’s have some  more of Kate…

Kate Beckinsale

Wait a minute, I can sense an overflowing of coolness in the house… could that be… Aaaah!!! It’s the Godfather of Heavy Metal, Ozzy Osbourne!!!

Ozzy Osbourne

Wow I didn’t expect that. That’s what I love about movie premieres, there are always surprises. It’s actually a family night out, according to this:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2182464/Jack-Osbourne-fianc-e-Lisa-leave-baby-Pearl-home-night-Sharon-Ozzy.html

Sometimes I feel like I should really make a Twitter account already.

The Osbournes

And now the man of the hour, Colin Farrell!

*Mwah* to everyone!!!

Collin Farrell

I really hope this movie turns out to be great. I’m highly skeptical, but I hope for the best. Anyways, tonight I’m just happy seeing the stars of the film,  especially the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale. I love you Kate! And Jessica Biel as well. I love you too Jessica!

That’s it for tonight folks. But before I go, let’s have one more of Jessica Biel…

Jessica Biel

Oh she’s busy reading, let’s not disturb her haha. Goodnight and see you guys again soon on the next Red Carpet Premiere!


The Expendables 2 Red Carpet Premiere

The Expendables 2 Movie Poster

Sylvester Stallone!!! *KABOOM*

Arnold Scwarzenegger!!! *KABOOM*

Jason Statham!!! *KABOOM*

Chuck Norris!!! ***KAAABOOOOOOOOOMMMMMM***

It’s The Expendables 2 Red Carpet Premiere! The toughest men in Hollywood are gonna be here! We’re all pumped up!!!

The premiere has been delayed a couple of days due to the passing of Stallone’s son, Sage. Rest in Peace, brother.

And now we’re here, ready to witness the macho men of the big screen all in one event, live and in person. I grew up watching some of these men on Betamax, then on VHS, then on VCD, then on DVD, now we have Blu-Ray, and they’re still kings. The symbols of male machismo. The gods of Hollywood action films. Today, we see these gods walk right in front ouf our very eyes.

The crowd is piling up. More and more people arrive by the minute. Hollywood Blvd is gonna be packed in a little while. The street is closed to the traffic, maybe just coz Chuck Norris wants it to be. Hmm wait… that girl looks familiar… isn’t that… Catwoman?! Wow even superheroes can’t wait to see them!

Catwoman Hollywood

I see the billboard up on the wall and wow! It’s actually the first time I see this version. I only keep seeing the other one but this… THIS is definitely way cooler. The Last Supper theme, very clever.

The Expendables 2 Billboard

Get your posters and sharpies ready folks! They’ll be here in a minute…

The Expendables 2 Autograph

The big badass black cars are starting to arrive…

Hollywood  Celebrity Car

Hollywood  Celebrity Car

Hollywood  Celebrity Car 3

Okay I dunno any of them (you probably do!). But that’s usually the case, the unknowns arrive first, then the little known, then the minor cast, then the stars of the film. It’s kind of like a rising tension that builds to the climactic moment.

First familiar face of the day, Extra’s Mario Lopez! He’ll be doing some interviews for his show today…

Mario Lopez

And there’s Olympic swimmers Ryan Lochte and Conor Dwyer! This is so unexpected! There are not only action heroes here, but Olympic heroes as well! Congratulations for the achievements you’ve made this past summer guys!

Ryan Lochte & Conor Dwyer

Conor Dwyer & Ryan Lochte

Another Olympian! It’s suddenly raining gold medals! Her name’s Jessica Steffens, from the US Women’s Water Polo Team. Congratulations, Jessica! Wear it proud!

Jessica Steffens

The place is now roaring! Somebody big has arrived! BIG, both literally and figuratively… it’s Terry Crews! Man! The guy’s full of energy! He blasts to the scene screaming, waving his arms up telling everyone to get wild. And so we do!!!

Terry Crews

Terry Crews sure is one of the coolest guys in Hollywood.

Terry Crews

And then there’s Charisma Carpenter, she plays the girlfriend of Jason Statham’s character on the film.

Charisma Carpenter

Next comes IVAN DRAGO!!! Mr. Dolph Lundgren! Okay he’s played a lot of other characters throughout the years but he’ll always be Drago to me. That training montage scene on Rocky 4?! EPIC. By the way, he’s from Sweden. Jag älskar Sverige!

Dolph Lundgren's Arrival

The Stallone Family is now here, supporting Sly. Jean-Claude Van Damme has also arrived. The guys meet and give each other a big warm hug. Of course in the film, Van Damme is the main antagonist so don’t expect any hugging there.

Sylvester Stallone & Jean-Claude Van Damme

Van Damme is now walking towards us. Hope he doesn’t give anyone a flying kick!

Jean Claude Van Damme

Hey Jean-Claude! I love Bloodsport!!!

Jean Claude Van Damme

Everything seems to be going fine at this point, and then it happens. The earth shakes, a loud deafening sound is heard, people scatter on all directions running for their lives. HOLY SMOKES!!! It’s CHUCK NORRIS! It’s CHUCK NORRIS!!! IT”S CHUCK NORRIISSSS!!!!

Chuck Norris

Nah. None of that happens. He arrives peacefully and proceeds to sign autographs.

Chuck Norris Signing Autographs

Okay while he is signing, some Chuck Norris facts. Yay!

  • Chuck Norris charges money for autographs because they double as “No Tresspassing” signs.
  • Chuck Norris is so powerful he can jumpstart a car by attaching the cables to his chest hair.
  • Only one person cried when Chuck Norris was born and it was the doctor. No one slaps Chuck Norris.

Okay enough. There’s a whole website dedicated to that, check it out! http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com/ FYI, it’s all 100% real haha.

Chuck’s done signing and look there’s an SUV heading the opposite way, I suddenly hear screams “ARNOLD!!!” I saw his hands waving from the window, but that was it. I didn’t get a photo! Well, I got a photo of the vehicle at least.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's SUV

I’m gonna wait for him to walk by to our spot so I can see him better, but I’ll learn later on that he won’t be heading our way.

I got a picture from afar, a badly blurred one. Ugh.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Bummer. But that’s alright, just keep making action movies sir, and I’ll see you in another premiere!

There’s a buzz that Bruce Willis will not be coming, which will prove to be right. They say he’s abroad or something. That’s okay, he has a movie coming soon and I hope to see him there. It’s called Looper, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

***CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE OFFICIAL TRAILER OF “LOOPER”***

Now here’s the main man, Sylvester Stallone! Cool, he’s wearing his “lucky ring” from the movie!

The whole family walks by with him while he’s signing, with some people asking for pictures with the members of the family too, especially Frank Stallone who also is an actor.
