The latest clip from Len Wiseman's remake of 'Total Recall' has hit the 'net, featuring Colin Farrell kicking all manner of serious butt. Let's get down to business, shall we?

Len Wiseman's remake of 'Total Recall' is one of this summer's biggest wild cards. Will audiences flock to a remake of a modern classic that abandons much of what makes the original so beloved? Is Colin Farrell capable of drawing the crowds? Why does the whole thing look so much like 'Minority Report'? So many questions...which is certainly appropriate for a movie that appears to be all about asking questions. The latest TV spot emphasizes the film's memory-wiping, identity-seeking twists alongside all of the futuristic action.
Recently, we showed you a comparison between the first trailer for the remake of 'Total Recall' and the original film. And if that trailer had some similarities, it could be argued that perhaps it was edited to remind viewers of the original. The latest trailer lifts scenes wholesale.
We haven't heard much about 'Epic' around here -- the new film from Blue Sky Studios, the people who brought you 'Ice Age' and 'Rio' -- but thanks to this new trailer, we have a better idea of what this film is about... well, sort of.
Do you get an overwhelming feeling of déjà vu when you watch the promotional materials for Len Wiseman’s ‘Total Recall?’ You’re not alone. In fact, a YouTube user named Mister Cinestri created a video using footage from Paul Verhoeven’s original 'Recall,' cutting it to match the trailer from the upcoming remake and allowing you to watch both, side-by-side. The similarities between the two are surprising.
Was it 'In Bruges'? It's hard to say where Colin Farrell's career turned around, but he went from a would-be star to wash out to now, when he's coming back with a vengeance. Besides top-lining this summer's 'Total Recall' it looks like he might join Tom Hanks in 'Saving Mr. Banks.'
Though it's not due out until August 3, 'Total Recall' has already got a TV spot. Which suggests that the new model of media saturation that was so effective for 'The Avengers' is taking hold, and we're going to be inundated with tons of 'Total Recall' for the next two months.
A slew of oddly-cropped ‘Total Recall’ images were added to Sony Pictures’ official site for Len Wiseman’s reboot of the classic sci-fi thriller, showing us pretty much what we’ve come to expect from the upcoming summer blockbuster: guns, babes, and a frazzled Colin Farrell trying to decipher reality from deadly fiction.
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.
Paul Verhoeven's 'Total Recall' is a modern classic, a blistering blend of bloody action, bizarre sci-fi concepts and hilarious satire. Len Wiseman's upcoming remake looks to be a completely different beast, a slick, modern action movie designed for a summer crowd. You can see for yourself when you check out the trailer below.
