Twenty-two years after the original Total Recall, Colin Farrell takes on the role originated by Arnold Schwarzenegger in a reboot hitting theaters Friday.

The new movie -- which, like the 1990 original, was adapted from Philip K. Dick's short We Can Remember It for You Wholesale -- also stars Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel and Bryan Cranston and was directed by Len Wiseman.

Also on Friday, the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise returns with a third installment, subtitled Dog Days, that was directed by David Bowers and culled from the third and fourth books by Jeff Kinney. The movie stars Zachary Gordon, Robert Capron and Devon Bostick.
