THOR: THE DARK WORLD

Actress Rene Russo spoke with Vulture about her return as Frigga for "Thor: The Dark World," mentioning she hopes her character gets a little more screen time in the sequel.

"You know, they cut me [down] in the first film," Russo told Vulture. "[Director] Kenneth Branagh sent me a nice note, because he understood, he's an actor. You move on, what are you going to do? But I think they're going to need a good mom in the next film. Loki needs his mom. What the hell? … I have a lot of compassion for him. But we might have to have a conversation about what he just did, and I might have to have a chat with Thor. But I am so confused - is Thor my son or not? People have been telling me recently, 'No, you're not his mother.' It's all so confusing! I got to tell ya, it would be a little embarrassing if I don't know. I need to read more about her."

TOTAL RECALL

Two new clips of the upcoming "Total Recall" remake have surfaced from Sony's International YouTube channel and the official "Total Recall" YouTube account. The film opens in two days.

Jessica Biel spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about her role as resistance fighter Malena and developing her relationship with Colin Farrell's Quaid.

"It’s just constant care and attention. It’s constantly Colin and I, or whoever you’re working with, going, 'We have to give this the some time -- let’s do that again and think of how we can make the scene stronger emotionally,'" Biel told THR. "I know we have to shoot the big action sequence, but if you don’t care about the two people going through it, who cares at the end of the day? And really, it’s your director. If Len didn’t care about a female character that was equally smart, cool, tough, kick-ass and emotionally vulnerable, emotionally sensitive and actually a woman, a real person, then you’re dead in the water. Because he, in the end, is the only person who has the ability to put it all together, and on this one particularly, he cared about letting this person be this well-rounded and real -- in a heightened sense, but a real woman."
