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.
This weekend the first trailer (the teaser trailer) for Len Wiseman's 'Total Recall' is going to premiere. But until that time, we have the teaser for the teaser trailer. The film is an update of Paul Verhoven's classic science fiction film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but - from the teaser trailer's teaser - it seems all they kept was one prop. Take a look...
Colin Farrell is currently in talks with Warner Bros. to join David Dobkin's 'Arthur and Lancelot.'
