Len Wiseman Does Commentary for his ‘Total Recall’ Trailer
Borrowing a page from the website Trailers From Hell, Len Wiseman has done a commentary track for a trailer. But in this case it’s not an obscure or classic film, it’s for his upcoming remake of ‘Total Recall,’ which hits theaters August 3.
The film stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel and Wiseman’s wife Kate Beckinsale, and his comments seem to match the filmmaker we know today. He does say that when Colin disarms and kills the men who surround him that it was all Colin, that there were 22 takes, and that the cameras were moving at 35 miles per hour.
This also suggests that either Sony thinks they have a winner with this title, or that we’re just seeing the first wave of promotions. But this seems to be the start of an aggressive campaign, as there’s been a ton of new material lately. I’m curious if they went R-rated with this, but my guess is not. If Wiseman can’t get a ‘Die Hard’ movie to be R rated, there’s no way in heck this expensive production could be an R. Then again, that doesn’t mean there won’t be an unrated cut when the film hits home video. Other than an appreciation for Colin Farrell as an actor, there’s little about the project that excites.
