We’ve all heard the casual moans of fan communities that Hollywood never comes up with anything original anymore, settling into the familiar patterns of sequels, remakes, and adaptations of familiar properties to cash in on brand recognition. And while remakes have become subtly accepted as a chance for a new take on dormant properties, the recent ‘RoboCoptrailer reminded us just how much passions can strain in the dissection of beloved classics.

‘Total Recall 2’ –- Why It’s a Shame the Remake Likely Won’t Get a Sequel

The new version of ‘Total Recall’ is different from the original in many ways, but one thing that sadly remains similar is the opening box office gross. Back in 1990, $25.5 million was enough to be the biggest debut of the year. In 2012, an initial earning of $26 million is barely enough to crack the top 25. Given that the remake cost a lot more than the first film, even with inflation considered, the numbers are quite a disappointment. So, once again we can put to sleep the prospect of a ‘Total Recall 2.’

Hey there, 'Total Recall.' You know how you were supposed to be pretty big movie? Well, hopefully you're sitting down because, well...you're not. You see, there's this little thing called 'The Dark Knight Rises' that isn't a remake of a much-beloved film and it doesn't star Colin Farrell and people actually seem to generally kinda' like it. Yeah, sorry buddy. You didn't stand a chance.

'Total Recall' Review

Len Wiseman is good at what he does -- and what he does is make mindless action films. Unfortunately, that makes him a poor choice to direct a remake of 'Total Recall,' since what makes the material so great is the fact that it's anything but mindless.
Wisemen is totally uninterested in the very thing that makes 'Total Recall' interesting -- namely its poker-faced presentation of a story with two totally viable interpretations. Is what we're watching really happening? Or is it all a dream? In investigating the nature of reality amidst a barrage of chases and fight scenes, the first 'Total Recall' was a unique pleasure: an action movie with brains and brawn. Wiseman strips away the subtext and ambiguity, puts his head down, and barrels along from one scene to the next.

After 'The Amazing Spider-Man' unleashed about 25 minutes of footage online before release, it seems that Sony - the studio behind it and the upcoming 'Total Recall' remake - have decided that it's better to put out less of their movies. We've now had two clips from 'Total Recall' and the sum total of clippage is about eighty seconds.

Right now, everyone’s in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ mode. You can forgive Hollywood for forgetting, albeit temporarily, that there are other films coming out this summer. ‘The Watch’ looks funny, and ‘The Bourne Legacy’ could kick serious ass. We're also excited for ‘Total Recall,’ which wowed the crowds at San Diego Comic-Con and now continues to tease with a new clip.
