New Trailer For ‘Total Recall’ Finds A Way To Make Having Three Breasts Look Boring

Total_Recall_Header_6_27_12

So far the only interesting thing about Columbia Pictures’ Len Wiseman (Underworld) directed Total Recall are those viral “Rekall” posters. Those are pretty cool. But I’m actually glad they came out after we’d seen some footage from the movie because they might have raised my expectations somewhat. As it stands – and this includes the new trailer posted below – everything I’ve seen is so bland. Sure, there’s a bunch of stuff flying around onscreen, but I literally can’t think of a movie that embodies the way remakes neuter their source material more than this one seems to. It also needlessy recycles the line, “If I’m not me, who the hell am I?

Which is a shame. I actually really like most of the talent involved in this, it’s not like I want to dislike this movie. Here’s hoping we’ll be pleasantly surprised when the movie comes out in a little over a month. And hey! At least it has the three mammary glanded woman!

In theaters August 3, “ ‘Total Recall’ is an action thriller about reality and memory, inspired anew by the famous short story “We Can Remember It For You Wholesale” by Philip K. Dick. Welcome to Rekall, the company that can turn your dreams into real memories. For a factory worker named Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (Kate Beckinsale) who he loves, the mind-trip sounds like the perfect vacation from his frustrating life – real memories of life as a super-spy might be just what he needs. But when the procedure goes horribly wrong, Quaid becomes a hunted man. Finding himself on the run from the police – controlled by Chancellor Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston), the leader of the free world – Quaid teams up with a rebel fighter (Jessica Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (Bill Nighy) and stop Cohaagen. The line between fantasy and reality gets blurred and the fate of his world hangs in the balance as Quaid discovers his true identity, his true love, and his true fate.

      I’m with DJ. Looks fun, and it stars 2 of the only 4 Hollywood gals that I find remotely attractive! Funny how 1 day this site complains how it looks exactly like the original, and the next it faults it for looking boring. So then the original was boring too, if it looks exactly the same? I have learned over the year not to trust this site. They pimp their own crap, heavy emphasis on CRAP (except Rammbock), and slam anything that might be mainstream. The Woman, Dead Girl…..they raved….utter crap.

    It just looks like the same movie. I was expecting a different experience, but they recycled pretty much everything besides Mars. I don’t know. I’m on the fence, but I will be seeing it regardless.

    OMG. It’s like they’re not even bothering to make it something different. All the elements are the same. Sure the look is different from arnie’s version, but it just looks like every other scifi. Why couldn’t they have put this budget and interesting cast to good use and made something original. I hope this movie bombs, not because it deserves it, but if it works Hollywood will make dooing more of these uninspired remakes (like there aren’t enough of them).

    I think it looks decent. I’m a huge fan of the original so I’ll definitely give this one a whirl.
