Colin Farrell’s ‘Total Recall’ & Andrew Garfield’s ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ are two movies that we are giving Irish audiences a taste for at Movie Fest.

The film stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans, Denis Leary, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field.
TOTAL RECALL * 5 minute action clip. Total Recall is a new, re-imagining of the science fiction saga. The short story “We Can Remember It for You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick served as the source for the 1990 movie which starred Arnold Schwarzenegger. Colin Farrell takes over the lead role in the new version, which is directed by Len Wiseman.
30 MINUTES OR LESS * Trailer and brand new ‘Bank Robbery’ Scene. The director of ‘Zombieland’ returns with this new action-comedy. Nick (Jesse Eisenberg) is a small town pizza delivery guy whose mundane life collides with the big plans of two wanna-be criminal masterminds (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson). The volatile duo kidnaps Nick and forces him to rob a bank. With mere hours to pull off the impossible task, Nick enlists the help of his ex-best friend, Chet (Aziz Ansari). As the clock ticks, the two must deal with the police, hired assassins, flamethrowers, and their own tumultuous relationship.
ANONYMOUS * New footage from Roland Emmerich’s upcoming movie. Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare?
STRAW DOGS * New Trailer. David and Amy Sumner (James Marsden and Kate Bosworth), a Hollywood screenwriter and his actress wife, return to her small hometown in the deep South to prepare the family home for sale after her father’s death. Once there, tensions build in their marriage and old conflicts re-emerge with the locals, including Amy’s ex-boyfriend Charlie (Alexander Skarsgård), leading to a violent confrontation.
MONEYBALL * New Trailer Brad Pitt stars in the real-life tale of Major League Baseball general manager Billy Beane, who built up a winning team despite a decreased budget thanks to his sly use of statistical data to calculate the best — and cheapest — players for his roster.
FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS * Trailer The relationship between two friends gets complicated when they decide to get romantic. Dylan (Justin Timberlake) and Jamie (Mila Kunis) think it’s going to be easy to add the simple act of sex to their friendship, despite what the Hollywood romantic comedies would have them believe.
