total recall reboot

The latest international trailer for Len Wiseman’s Total Recall remake has hit the ‘net and boy howdy, does it look like the last one. Sure there is a small sprinkling of new footage if you really want to scour it frame by frame, but it still left me with an empty feeling.

Don’t get me wrong, I will fully admit this version of the classic Philip K. Dick short story We Can Remember It For You Wholesale looks like a great sci-fi movie, it still depresses me a little inside. No, this is not some old nerd pining for the original… ok, maybe it is a little.

Is a 3 boobed hooker just to much to ask for these days?

Check it the trailer after the jump.

No more teasers for Total Recall, we’ve got a full trailer from Columbia Pictures for director Len Wiseman’s Total Recall reboot. The movie hits theater screens on August 3rd, starring Colin Farrell, Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, John Cho and Bill Nighy.

 

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 (Farrell), even though he’s got a beautiful wife (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 (Biel) to find the head of the underground resistance (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.

Here’s another one of those damn trailer teasers. This time next year we’ll probably be getting still movie images released once a day that when put together and flipped . . . show us the trailer. Anything those marketing geniuses can do to keep the news cycle lukewarm about a film it seems.

The full trailer will be revealed this Sunday – here’s the details according to Columbia Pictures:

Moviegoers will begin their Recall experience on Sunday, April 1, as Columbia Pictures debuts the trailer for the highly anticipated action thriller Total Recall during the NBA game between the Boston Celtics and the Miami Heat broadcast nationally on ABC, it was announced today by Marc Weinstock, president of Worldwide Marketing for Sony Pictures. Total Recall will be released in theaters nationwide on August 3, 2012.

The world premiere of the Total Recall trailer will air during the first half of the game and will be promoted with tune-ins in the week leading up to the game.

Following the trailer’s premiere on ABC, a special extended trailer will debut online at www.apple.com/trailers.

The trailer will also launch simultaneously in over 30 countries on broadcast and online outlets.

Commenting on the announcement, Weinstock said, “We’re thrilled to be working with the NBA and ABC to give millions of fans all across the country this exciting first look at the trailer.”

New Taiwanese ‘Total Recall’ Footage

 

There hasn’t been much news lately from the Total Recall production. Len Wiseman and Columbia Pictures have been keeping pretty much to themselves any goodies from their Total Recall remake.

We’ve only seen a few set stills from the movie which opens August 3, 2012. A Taiwanese 30-second promo for the film has hit the net. the Movie stars Colin Farrell and Kate Beckinsale, check out the Kate pics below.

Synopsis, which might be a spoiler if you never saw the first film:

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.

All this secrecy might not be a bad idea, we already know the plot and story. Maybe keeping everything else under cover will get people thinking that the synopsis given is just a smoke screen. They can’t leave out those iconic images that made Total Recall a hit.
